Depression is a medical diagnosis and if your suffer from clinical depression we are obliged to direct you to the appropriate local mental healthcare professional. Depression can vary from very mild to life-threatening. In any size it will diminish the quality of your life. You will need several tools to deal with these feelings and each case is different so any thoughts on this page can only be general and may or may not be helpful for you particularly.
Depression is related to decreased frontal cortex activity. This frontal cortex activity decline and feelings of depression can be a combination of factors from situational to biochemical. We wonít discuss situation problems but we will touch on some biochemistry.
Traumatic accidents can also change your brain chemistry. In fact a lot is now being written about the effects that concussions have on the brain. Particularly at risk are people subject to repeated head impact such as hockey players, football players, soldiers and of course anyone who has had one or more significant car accidents.
Brain degeneration is represented by the accumulation of two types of proteins. One is called beta amyloid protein and the other tau proteins. Beta amyloid proteins are a common finding in early and mid stages of dementia. The beta amyloid stages seem to respond to specific supplements like Metagenics Cognisure. The advanced states show more tau proteins. This represents a more permanent state of brain damage.
Concussion brain damage doesnít show a beta amyloid stage. Tau proteins appear right away and the damage just gets worse.
This is the general lesson from brain studies. Brain problems are progressive meaning they get worse and over time the rate of this damage picks up speed. This means if you are experiencing any of the problems listed above, you wonít find a better time to take action than today. As difficult as it might be to get results, tomorrow it will be more difficult.
So what if you suffer from depression and have a history of brain injury. We are believers in giving your brain the building blocks it needs to be at its healthiest possible. That means keeping inflammation to a minimum, working to protect the blood brain barrier (BBB), removing toxins, get checked for gluten and other food sensitivities. If you remove these sources of stressors, the damaged area may suffer less stress too.
Your brain chemistry can be altered by many factors. There is no one neurotransmitter profile that is diagnostic of depression. In other words as you canít look at an MRI of a low back and predict the pain of that person, you canít look at a neurotransmitter profile of a person and predict how depressed they might be.
We have noticed, however that as peopleís neurotransmitter profiles return to a more ideal state, they feel better. The response can be quite rapid. Generally we like to support the inhibitory pathways first. Once those pathways are healthier, we then work on normalizing the excitatory pathways. We use amino acids and herbs to help balance the brain. These are not controlled substances to no prescription is required.
We recommend neurotransmitter testing to see which parts of the brain chemistry are most stressed. It has to be specific for you or it wonít work. Call us at 877-465-0844 and we will get that process going for you. Prices run about $220 or so for the basic tests.
We talk a lot about gluten sensitivity. Gluten can cause an antibody attack on key brain enzymes causing a neurotransmitter imbalance and brain damage that can be seen on MRI. This brain damage can often be reversed but requires a strict gluten-free diet. In my opinion this is a small price to pay for slowing the destruction of your brain. We recommend Cyrex Labs Array 3 ($325 at the time of this writing) to help determine your bodyís reaction to wheat gluten (test can only be sold in Nevada and California)
