For a video lecture explaining Neurotransmitter therapy in detail click here. Here is a written explanation.
Our brains are soggy computers. Instead of wires and circuitry brain cells communicate with each other using chemicals called neurotransmitters. The balance of these chemicals determine how we think, how we move, our emotions, how we sleep, how we eat - basically every single regulating aspect of brain function. When these neurotransmitters are in balance the brain works well and the body functions efficiently. But here’s the problem.
Everyone is different. Some of us come into this world with a brain chemistry that it so balanced that it takes a lot to disturb it. I call this “bomb proof brain chemistry.” You know people who have bomb proof brain chemistry. They are the ones who can eat poorly, drink too much, take drugs without getting addicted, go easily without sleep, and handle incredible levels of stress with ease. But for every person with bomb proof brain chemistry, there is someone else who has vulnerable chemistry.
You know people like this as well. They can only deal with minimal amounts of stress. And they have to be very careful about what they eat, how they sleep, and how much stress they are dealing with. They tend to either avoid drugs or they end up becoming addicted to them. They can get depressed or anxious for no reason at all. If they are women, they often have difficult times with their periods or with menopause. They are not necessarily any more psychologically imbalanced than their bomb proof counterparts, but it seem like little to nothing can send them into a tailspin.
Most of us are not like these two extremes. Most of us are either in the middle or favor one extreme or the other. But here’s the thing. No matter where we are on the brain chemistry spectrum, we can develop an imbalance that can lead to all kinds of problems like depression, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, memory loss, insomnia, gastrointestinal disorders, hypertension, bipolar syndrome, mania, seizures, anorexia, bulimia, addictions, and almost any disorder there is. There are two things that can put an otherwise balanced brain chemistry into an imbalanced state.
One is stress. Stress in the form of a single significant trauma such as a death or divorce or loss of a job. Or stress in the form of a continuous level of stress that just eventually wears a person out. This could be from a difficult marriage, a difficult child, a significant illness, chronic pain, overuse of drugs or alcohol, a nutrient poor diet, and so forth.
The other cause is aging. That’s right. Just like everything else the older you get the more imbalanced your brain chemistry tends to be. This is why the incidence of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and memory poblems go up so drastically in the over forty group.
So if you battle with any of these disorders or symptoms the odds are good that you were born with a brain chemistry that was already vulnerable. And then when stress hits and/or you just got older it broke down and became permanently imbalanced. Now here’s the good news.
All brain chemistry imbalances can permanently fixed by taking the right balance of four amino acids. They are l-dopa, tyrosine, tryptophan, and cysteine. These aminos are completely natural, and have no side effects. And they always work! The reason they work is because the balance of the three major neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, and epinephrine are determined by these aminos.
Even if you are currently on drugs or psychotherapy for these symptoms it doesn’t matter. When the imbalances are corrected you will be able to throw them away. And in the majority of cases, after being on the aminos for six months, you will be able to throw them away as well. Because just like your chemistry was in balance before, once it gets balanced again it tends stay that way even without them.
Neurotransmitter therapy works with adults, children, and the elderly. It is a travesty that the drug industry has convinced so many people that they need drugs for their symptoms when neurotransmitter therapy is so safe, easy, and effective.
