The Science Behind Amino Acid Therapy

Amino acid therapy involves a lot more than taking a bunch of pills. To truly understand why this process works, you need to understand what is going on behind the scenes. The science behind amino acid therapy may not be a great read (except for you health-junkies!) but once you understand how and why it works you begin to understand why we can achieve such amazing results.

Use the navigation outline on the right to learn more about how and why amino acid therapy works. If you want to know it all, start at the top and work your way down (be sure and take a break and let the information sink in if you start to feel a little overwhelmed). Alternatively, go to the part that most interests you and start there. We have provided this information because there wasn’t a good, concise explanation of how this therapy came about and wanted to provide our clients with a resource they could use as well as a place they could refer their health care providers.

    I am very interested in getting started trying to control my parkinsons. Were you trained in Amino Acid Therapy by a Dr. Marty Hinz? Do I have to come in to be evaluated or can this be done by telephone? Where are you located? Thank You Very Much

    I have tremors in both my hands, particularly my thumbs and index fingers. I’ve had them for over 20 years and they’ve gotten worse over time. Using my hands for extended periods of time for sewing and holding a phone makes the tremors worse. Holding ones hands in one position for a long time cause stiffness or tremors in general. I’m concerned that the amino acid therapy will not work if I continue to do these activities. I would prefer to continue sewing as it’s something I enjoy.

    I have had hand tremors for 20+ years with them worsening over the years. I do lots of sewing and other hand work. I’m wondering if the therapy will work even if I continue with this hand work? I’ve noticed that my tremors worsen when I do lots of hand work and return to “normal” when I rest my hands for a couple days. Have you worked with patients in similar situations? Thank you

      Hi Kathy – thanks for your comments. Amino acid therapy would certainly be worth a try, as it sounds like your muscles are fatiguing quickly which can lead to a tremor. If the cause of the tremor is neurotransmitter dysfunction, your tremor should improve (and/or the time it takes for the tremor to worsen should lengthen) allowing you to continue with your sewing and other hand work as long as you’d like:)

      I look forward to speaking with you –

      Sincerely,

      Dr. Chad

    I’ve been on Effexor xr for 16 years now. I recently asked my doctor to up my dose to 150mg because of my depression and anxiety returning. I still feel this dose isn’t working. I was wondering if I can use these supplement while on Effexor?

      Hi Sherry,

      This is a great question and one that we are often asked. You can use the amino acids while taking SSRI/SNRI medications. The amino acids will help the body produce more neurotransmitters which will ultimately increase the neurotransmitters in the system and give the drugs more amino acids to work with. In essence, they can help the medications work better.

      Hope that helps!

      Dr. Chad
