Amino Acid Therapy / Nutritional Therapy is a natural way to correct chemical imbalances in the brain. Symptoms like depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, perfectionism, stress, overwhelm, inattention, stress and insomnia can ALL be attributed to deficiencies in specific neurotransmitter systems. Neurotransmitter systems need to be functioning optimally for us to make good choices, feel balanced, happy, focused and cope with stress.
Supplemental amino acids are simple capsules that can be found locally at any vitamin store or Whole Foods. I also sell them at a discount from my online dispensary. They are used for a short period of time, typically 2-6 months, until an individual’s Neurotransmitter System is replete. Many clients see symptom improvement in as little as one week! Ultimately, the imbalances are corrected, amino acids are no longer needed, and the client can enjoy a symptom free life!
Amino Acid Therapy begins with you filling out a questionnaire and indicate the different symptoms you’re experiencing, and what you’ve used now or in the past to feel better. I also conduct a complete Intake / Health History and look at any existing conditions and medications or supplements you’re taking. Based on this information, I identify which neurotransmitter systems are depleted. I then suggest targeted amino acids and conduct a trialing process where we check in weekly and adjust as needed, to re-balance the brain and relieve your symptoms. Once the neurotransmitter deficiencies are biochemically restored, symptoms disappear and the cravings for substances, sugar or habits are relieved!
Just as patients with diabetes or heart disease receive nutrition education to manage their diseases, people dealing with substance abuse need nutrition education to address their specific risk factors!
If you’ve wondered WHY you can’t stay with your plan for abstinence from alcohol, drugs or food, you’ll be happy to know a solid recovery plan requires MUCH MORE than willpower. I can help you correct the biochemical imbalances that cause you to continually get in your own way. Relapse and self-sabotage will finally be over!
If amino acid therapy doesn’t work, something else likely is at play, such as gut dysbiosis like candida albicans, which is a yeast / fungal overgrowth that can cause intense cravings, or Pyroluria, a genetic condition that results in low zinc and B6, Adrenal Fatigue/High Cortisol, Methylation or other conditions. The Gut-Brain connection is powerful and impaired digestion for any reason can affect amino acid absorption. These conditions can all be tested, evaluated and addressed, if needed. I am partnered with a Functional Medicine Doctor and know which labs to recommend to dig deeper!
But first … try amino acids!
