Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that the body uses to relay information. Many people are on medications to alter neurotransmitter levels or function in an attempt to improve their health. However, people need to know how these medications work and which neurotransmitters are impacted in order to understand if and how they can optimize their health.

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…)

Anyone that has had – or that has had to witness someone having – a migraine can attest to the outright agony experienced. Many people find themselves completely incapacitated during a migraine attack and need to lock themselves away until it passes.

Anybody that has experienced a migraine headache (and even those that have watched someone else experience one) knows how devastatingly painful they can be. During a migraine headache, blood vessels in the head go through a cycle of extreme constriction followed by rapid dilation. These blood vessels become inflamed due to imbalances in brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. There are many possible causes for neurotransmitter imbalance, but one of the most common is adrenal fatigue. Therefore, if we can address and relieve adrenal fatigue, we can often reduce the frequency and duration of migraines.

Our lives seem so full of things to worry about and/or do that we don’t even realize that our health is slowly but steadily slipping away from us. Even if we can find the time to exercise, many of us perform exercises that fatigue and drain us even more. Rather than relieve stress, most of our activities have the effect of fueling a state called Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) dominance. Periodic detoxification can help calm down an overactive sympathetic nervous system. The key is to perform a detoxification program properly. Read more…
