Imbalances Cause Disease Symptoms

Neurotransmitters are a class of chemical messengers in the body that help regulate, either directly or indirectly, most of the other systems and functions in the body. If there are imbalances in these neurotransmitters, many bodily functions will start to function inappropriately, which can lead to a number of unpleasant or debilitating symptoms.

Most people have heard of several common neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (also known as adrenaline) and are familiar with at least some of their functions in regards to mood (especially depression) and sleep (serotonin is the immediate precursor to melatonin, which helps you fall asleep and stay asleep). What most people do not know is that neurotransmitter imbalances can dramatically affect many other aspects of your health and can cause or exacerbate any of the following conditions:

Depression Anxiety Migraines
Insomnia Cravings Increased appetite
Low pain tolerance Hot flashes Mood swings
PMS Sleep difficulties Poor memory
Weight gain Poor weight loss Hormone imbalances
Poor mental focus Poor concentration Restless legs
Fibromyalgia Fatigue/Chronic fatigue Poor thyroid function
Parkinson’s Disease ADD/ADHD Trichotillomania
Addictions Binging behavior Eating disorders
Obsessive thoughts Compulsion Crohn’s disease

A full list of the disorders and diseases related to neurotransmitter imbalance can be accessed here. The key point is that when imbalances in neurotransmitters occur, information is not relayed optimally in the brain which causes symptoms. Most people exhibit more than one of these conditions but fail to make the connection between them. This connection is not made because most health care professionals don’t know much about brain chemistry or how to use amino acid therapy to correct the underlying neurotransmitter imbalances.

We have a novel approach to help those with these disorders substantially reduce and/or eliminate their symptoms.  It is based on underlying biochemical imbalances in brain chemistry, and it works.

    I have been diagnosed with a “familiar tremor” – one in my right hand and one in my voice. I am a music teacher and have seen it come on slowly over the years. I can’t talk without sounding like I am about to cry, etc. So I went to a neurologist and he started me on medication. The 1/2 pill worked immediately and I thought is was going to be terrific! Then after a couple of weeks, the 1/2 pill didn’t work any more and I went to 1 whole pill. Then over time, I was up to 5 in the morning and 5 at night. I switched medications because it wasn’t working and I felt tired all of the time. That medication lowered my blood pressure. I just spent a day in the hospital and want to do something different!! Would this treatment be helpful?

      Hi Paula,

      Since you saw some (initial) relief on the medication, it is likely that neurotransmitter imbalance is at least a part of your underlying issue and amino acid therapy would certainly be worth a try. To get started, I would suggest you first contact NeuroSupport to see if there is a provider in your area: http://www.neurosupport.com; if not, please contact us and set up an initial phone/skype consultation and we’ll be happy to work with you.

      Sincerely,

      Dr. Chad

      Hi Julie,

    I have essential tremors in one hand and in my chin. The neurologist says there is no cure, just medication to control them. I also cannot sleep through the night, awaking after about 3 hours and unable to get back to sleep. Would amino acid therapy possibly help

      Hi Sue,

      Thanks for contacting us. Sleep imbalances/insomnia and essential tremors have both been linked to improper neurotransmitter function, so amino acid therapy may be able to provide some relief. I suggest you contact us to set up an initial consultation so I can gather some more information to see if this would be a good fit for you.

      I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you –

      Sincerely,

      Dr. Chad

    Hi Dr. Chad, I saw you for some care many years ago when you were off Grand Canyon Dr. I’m currently experiencing discomfort in a band around my chest while lying in bed. I’ve had some medical testing done for acid reflux, Celiac and a closer look at a duct to my gallbladder that was removed several years ago. I had a blood draw again recently and the PA said my liver function looks good and still the discomfort continues. Is this something you can help with?

Please get everything together and contact us to set up a phone or in-house follow up so we can review it and go from there.

    I have been suffering from some neurotransmitters disease since my childhood without my knowledge until it was triggered by a painful incident before 5 years. I have chronic fatigue, constipation, appetite issues and several mental dysfunctions like inability to focus mind on a problem, etc. Five years before I faced a bitter situation where I was extremely afraid of my life. That incident deviated me in to a hell of pains. My hole body started to get burnt, numbness and tingling were other neurological symptoms. Gastric problem also came to play a vital role in my life then. After several medications for each symptoms I automatically pushed to a psychologist who prescribed me Amitriptyline and Citalopram. Then my symptoms started to disappear slowly. Really then I understood that I have been suffering from a neurotransmitter disease since my childhood. Now my life has a real change. I am a very active person. But unfortunately again some symptoms came to be appeared 6 months ago. Then I went to doctor and then he double the Amitriptyline dosage. Again everything were back to normal except my gastric problem came to show playing a big role. Now I am suffering from it. Then I temporally stopped medications. But after several days my whole body began to be itchy starting from head. Several alleges developed. Doctor, can you please tell me whether itchy whole body and alleges are symptoms of this neurotransmitters disease? or it is another issue?. What do I need to do now? is it ok if I continue Amitriptyline ? Hope your kind response

      Greetings SBW – thanks for contacting us. It certainly sounds like neurotransmitter imbalance may be at least one of the main underlying causes for the way that you feel. However, I am not in a position to comment further without knowing substantially more about your health history. I suggest that you contact NeuroResearch at http://www.neurosupport.com to find a provider near you that specializes in amino acid therapy that may be able to help.

      Good luck!

    Hello Dr. Chad.

    My husband, 76, has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s more than three years ago. He has declined any medicines.
    The main symptoms are stiffness of the body left side, a tremor of his left and right hands and left leg, and jaw. Because of this it is difficult to keep the balance. There are also others symptoms, connected to mood, urination, etc. He is very suffering. I cannot find any information about providers near us on the NeuroResearch at http://www.neurosupport.com that you have recommended. Now they have only an announce about the conference in Los Angeles on their site. Sorry. Could you help us. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Natalya K.

    Hello Dr. Chad, I am 60 and have suffered from migraines for most of my life. I have been to numerous doctors over the years who only prescribed medication, never wanting to find the cause. The migraines are worse than ever now and I am at my wits end. After reading about amino acid therapy, I feel this could be the right direction for me to go. Any advice as to where to start ? I live in England.

    Hello Dr. Chad, I am 49 and have suffered from migraines since i was a child. I have failed all therapies and am intolerant to narcotics. The preventatives have caused confusion/memory loss and i usually get little to no relief from the abortive meds. i avoid food triggers, am underweight, and eat healthy. Last year i had an acute episode of unexplained neurological symptoms that mimicked MS & RA. I’m still searching to ‘cure’ my migraines. I would like to try AA therapy as the changing weather in Tx brings on the headaches. Your patient referred me to you as she is ‘cured’ of her migraines and so happy. i thank you in advance for your help. Sincerely, TC
