A Deficiency of This Compound Links IBS, Migraines, Fibromyalgia and More

Migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, fibormyalgia, obesity and even ADHD can all be traced back to depleted serotonin levels – and the effects on your body can be as damaging as they are diverse. When most people think of serotonin deficiency, the first thing they usually think about is depression. If that someone is you, you’d be right. But there’s a lot more to this neurotransmitter than meets the eye – a lot more. (more…)

Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalances

Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalances

Neurotransmitter imbalances can be caused by many different factors, including:

  • Food intolerances
  • Stress
  • Toxic burden
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Alcohol
  • Digestive imbalances
  • Dietary deficiencies
  • Genetics
  • Drug use
  • Medication use, including antidepressants, anti‐anxiety, sleep and migraine medications

Therefore, one of the keys to determining how to correct the underlying imbalances is to determine each individual’s unique cause(s) of imbalance and addressing them

Neurotransmitters are made in the body from specific amino acids and cofactors, like B‐vitamins, selenium, and other vitamins and minerals. Given the right proportions of each of these nutrients at the right time, the body will make the neurotransmitters it needs.

We often use a very powerful test, called a Comprehensive Metabolic Profile, that identifies each individuals specific needs for B‐vitamins, nutrients involved in cellular energy production, neurotransmitter metabolism, nutrients involved in detoxification, markers for gastrointestinal flora (dysbiosis) imbalance, essential fatty acids balance, free radical and antioxidant status and sensitivities to the thirty (30) most common food intolerances. It is a wonderful test that can be performed in the comfort of your own home and sent in. Once we get the results, we review them with you over the phone and give you recommendations to address any imbalances present.

If you are not interested in doing testing to determine your exact imbalances, all is not lost. We have used several formulas with great success in helping people rebalancing their neurotransmitter levels naturally.

Eliminating Cravings and Reducing Appetite = Neurotransmitter Balance

Neurotransmitters are a class of chemical messengers in the body that help regulate many body functions. Most people have heard of several common neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and are familiar with some of their functions in regards to mood and sleep. What many people do not know is that your neurotransmitter balance may dramatically affect your ability to lose and maintain your weight. Read more…

“I’m Pulling My Hair Out!” — Asking for Help

“I’m Pulling My Hair Out!” — Asking for Help

Most people that pull out their hair – whether it be from their head, eyelashes, eyebrows, arms, legs, armpits or pubic area – don’t talk about it. Many don’t want others to know about their pulling and will go to great lengths to hide it from others.

There are many things that drive people that pull their hair out to keep it from others, including shame, thinking that something is wrong with them or that their behavior isn’t socially acceptable. But it also has an unintended consequence: when people hide their pulling it makes others that pull feel like they are the only ones in the world that do it, and it makes it very hard for those people to find the help they need to stop pulling their hair out.
