The good news is that no matter the cause, the solution is to get the body the necessary nutrients it needs to restore proper neurotransmitter function and prevent neurotransmitter depletion as much as possible.
You may not be able to control all the factors that can cause neurotransmitter dysfunction, but you can control what you eat, how you handle stress and choose to give your body the nurturing and support necessary to achieve optimal neurotransmitter function, including properly balanced amino acid therapy – this will allow you to overcome any of these deficits and live your life the way you want.
Think of your brain as a bucket that we are trying to fill with neurotransmitters. All of the causes of neurotransmitter imbalance are like holes in the bucket. Properly administered amino acid therapy is like pouring water (neurotransmitters) into that bucket.
We can keep the bucket full by constantly putting in more water; however, this is a lot of work. It makes sense then to try and plug as many of the holes as possible so we can put in less and less water over time to keep the bucket topped off.
The same is true with amino acid therapy. We often use amino acid therapy to fill the brain with neurotransmitters so that people can experience relief from their symptoms. Once this occurs, they will have freed up an incredible amount of energy and motivation because they no longer have to deal with whatever those symptoms were. We then direct that energy towards identifying and addressing each causes of imbalance, in essence, plugging up the holes. This will allow a person to take less amino acids over time while remaining symptom free. Eventually, this can also lead to an elimination for the need of amino acid therapy.
The first step is to speak with a trained health care professional so you can get started with balanced amino acid therapy and start filling the bucket.
