Depression and Anxiety Secrets – Episode 1 Full Length

Depression and Anxiety Secrets – Episode 1 Full Length

if you’re someone that struggle with
depression for a long time or perhaps you have issues with anxiety or panic
attacks you’ve likely wondered if you can ever get better have you started to
lose hope if you’re struggling with neurodegenerative health if you heard of
your loved ones your family or friends suffering with Alzheimer’s or dementia
perhaps you’re feeling like these are life sentences once they happen or if
you have a genetic predisposition then it’s a life sentence things can never
get better Al’s imus dementia Parkinson’s macular
degeneration just to name a few are some of the most debilitating neurological
neuro degenerative brain conditions that we face today but let me tell you if
you’ve decided to lose hope or you feel like maybe this is just the way the life
is and the change is not possible I want to show you that there is another way
in this series we want to bring you amazing information about how you can
build a better future we want to re-instill that hope that you have lost
that belief that things can get better too often were told that this is simply
a hormonal imbalance and that we’re just genetically predisposed ition to what a
particular mental health problem however science is discovering that while
genetics certainly play a role in all this we are not doomed by our genetics
the environment we live in and the choices we make can alter our genetic
expression this is called epigenetics so if you’ve been told that you were born
with an imbalance and you may have to be on medication for the rest of your life
because of your depression or anxiety do not give up medications can have
profound and life-altering side-effects and yet many people are told that these
are the only options for these conditions you’ll see cases of Al’s imus
dementia Parkinson’s macular degeneration and other neurodegenerative
health conditions be reversed you’ll see the case studies the science and the
real-life case studies of the people so you can see the real life proof you’ll
see that the protocols and approaches were taking to depression and anxiety
and other mental illnesses is the same as the approach that we’re taking for
neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia and Parkinson’s
isn’t that fascinating see for yourself so you can actually
work out the best protocols the best diet the best lifestyle practices these
things will not only protect your mind from depression and anxiety and other
mental illnesses but they’ll also protect your mind against
neurodegenerative diseases we’re here to protect your brain and help you put
conditions into remission and prevent these things from happening I look
forward to seeing what you learn what you apply it through this amazing series at one point I had struggled with
alcohol abuse throughout my life and so I’d been sober for about six years and I
ended up going back to the bottle and I drank a bottle of tequila one night on
my own and I took a gun and I didn’t want to make a mess so I went outside in
my backyard and I pulled the trigger and the gun jammed there was no reason that the gun should
not gone off I’d have had a bullet in it I had I think I loaded it with four yes
and they the bullet was it was chambered it was it was ready to to fire I had a
friend checked the gun after I’d fired it and he knows a lot about guns and he
said there’s no reason that it should have not gone off at that point I wasn’t
thinking very clearly cuz of the alcohol and so I made a phone call to my father
and so he came and actually spent the night with me at my house and then took
me to his psych facility so I didn’t have any other plans beyond that at that
point I just knew since it wasn’t effective that I was that I was needing
help at that point well Christy was a complex case she had
come in on a lot of medications including one of the most difficult
medicines to get off of which is a benzodiazepine lorazepam and then
clonazepam on top of it she was on antidepressants she was on sleep
medicines she was on adderall to try to be able to get some focus which is what
we give for ADHD she was on gaba Penton and and she had been on SSRIs until
shortly before she came and on top of it she was had several addictions she was
major into tobacco caffeine she was an alcoholic as well although she had quit
drinking recently and that was just that side of things in addition we found out
that she had some genetic issues she had some premenstrual dysphoric disorder
that dysphoria that is actually was caused by a metal metabolism issue that
she did not know that she had and this apparently was passed along through her
mother who also has the same type of symptoms so her her depression would get
worse before her periods and that’s something that we can correct with with
the right doses of zinc in b6 to help her to be able to handle her copper
better in addition she had major sleep issues with a circadian rhythm hit
she had the developmental issues in addition her diet was not best as she
wasn’t making enough serotonin or dopamine as in regards to her diet
she had social issues with her recent divorce and she
also had some frontal lobe issues plus her lack of focus so you know with all
those issues it’s not all surprising that she had severe depression and and
she was trying to cope with it in the worst possible way by ending her life
which she tried five times to do before coming to this program fortunately
although it took longer because of her high amounts of benzos that she’d have
been on she responded well each one of those problems that I listed can
actually improve and and the causes of those can be eradicated and that means
depression and anxiety itself can be eradicated and it’s exactly what
happened to her it’s a great to be able to get people meaningful information
because knowledge is empowering and if we have knowledge then we can change
things we can change the outcome for so many years
medical science wanted us to think that everything was genetic and predetermined
and if we were going to change anything we had to have a drug now we know that
most of it is environmental it’s a situational it’s not genetic and
if there are genes we can work around those genes it’s called epigenetics we
can do things to influence and change them and so most of for instance cancer
way down in the single digits the genetic causes of cancer so three or
four percent which means the other yeah which means the other 95% are
environmental which means we can change them and so as we learn more about
genetics and how little what the the truly small role it plays and that’s not
completely true for Alzheimer’s but we can change it it’s called
epigenetics we can change the outcome by modifying what we do in our environment
so epigenetics is very very important in Alzheimer’s disease neurocognitive
disorders all of these situations very important thank you
really happy to hear that news that’s something that I believed in otherwise I
wouldn’t bother doing this I would just like that I thought everybody else but a
lot of people have just just give me a pill doc depression is often caused by
ruminating on past events by living in the past we often feel that we don’t
connect with those in the present we feel different or distant from all those
around us and even when loved ones do express care for us it often just feels
that they cannot understand and so we hold back from sharing this deep
struggle with them this causes further isolation which amplifies the feeling
that no one can ever understand or really care about us it is a very
vicious cycle and the longer we say stuck in it the deeper we end up
traveling into depressive thoughts in a way it’s like being stuck in a whirlpool
that is sucking you down and you are able to get to the surface and get some
air once in a while but just enough to stay alive but then you’re in a constant
struggle to not be sucked down to the bottom anxiety on the other hand is when
we’re focusing on the future and trying to determine the outcome because our
minds have limited information we tend to fill in the gaps if we’ve had
failures or bad experiences in the past our mind will fill in the gaps with what
it knows if those gaps get filled in with ideas of failure then it creates an
overwhelming fight-or-flight reflex this is when we feel the cortisol kick in and
the feeling of anxiety rushes over us if this fight-or-flight reaction escalates
too much it can develop into a full-blown panic attack and we feel that
we’re going to die and there’s no way out the reality is when there is a
threat in real life like being chased by a dog for example we have something
physical to react to we can run away we can fight but when it’s triggered by the
thoughts in our minds where can we go how can we find so we can feel stuck we
can’t quite pinpoint where our fear is coming from and it makes it very
difficult to diffuse the situation if we don’t understand what is happening

video to discover more in recent years there’s been an explosion of mental
illness in in our society and culture and we can see that mental illness is
really on the rise for example among young people back around World War two
you had studies that were done to assess how many mental health problems people
had well now here recently they did follow-up studies and they found that
there’s actually been a 500% increase meaning five times more diagnosable
mental health problems among young people meaning in high school and
college so that’s just one example that to give you some more general
six about a quarter of the United States adult population deals with mental
health problems every year like a diagnosable mental health problem and
about 20% give or take is on some kind of psychiatric medication and by and
large that’s antidepressant medication but in recent years there’s also been a
lot of antipsychotics and of course those medications come with big risks
associated and so mental health in America is not getting any better so what is depression I mean what we
have here is we have 350 million people right now have been diagnosed with
depression 1 million of which have been known and will commit suicide this year
depression is predicted to be the number one cause of disability through 2030 it
is a global epidemic it’s a public health crisis and so many people are on
antidepressants and they’re not getting better if we weren’t in at the epidemic
just think 350 million people that’s as many people as America just the whole
country of America is depressed odd the globe and if that doesn’t raise a red
flag that what we’re doing is incorrect the diagnosis the treatment the whole
experience as a patient I don’t know what else can say because it’s only
getting worse you know it works for you it’s different that works for me so you
have to find the solution for you but here’s depression symptoms feelings of
guilt and just think about how common these things are feelings of guilt
sadness worthlessness desperation inability to experience pleasure changes
in appetite and sleep patterns like who doesn’t experience that lack of energy a
lot of us are chronically fatigued we sit down all day right we’re not
exercising poor concentration grain fog poor memory motor retardation fatigue
will you go to a psychologist you’re gonna be diagnosed with depression and
here’s something that is a key reoccurrence suicidal or death ideation
why is that depression symptom why isn’t that
something else to me they’re lumping your desire to die it has been now
linked to depression versus a whole nother serious matter
like suicide ideation I say that because we’re lumping it’s a lump it’s a
catch-all it’s a catch-all disease and not to say it doesn’t exist because I
was quote clinically depressed I know what it’s like to be despair I know what
it’s like lacking energy and having brain fog and what all the other things
write changes in appetite I experience all this stuff but to label me as
depressed then to get me on an antidepressant isn’t the solution okay
and I want people to realize that all these are just symptoms that change and
in 10 years it could be a whole new litany of symptoms the one thing that
really concerns me out of all this isn’t the desire to die and that to me isn’t a
sign of depression that’s a sign that you’re desiring to die that’s a whole
nother issue altogether that shouldn’t be taken lightly some people really
desires to die for two weeks they should be in care they need to be under some
sort of home care support where they’re not going to be alone for 24 hours at a
time these people need to be loved on their need to be a system but to say hey
here’s an SSRI or here’s a drug or here’s a here’s a supplement go for it
and they’ll heal your depression that’s a disservice to humanity one of shift
gears for a moment and tackle the brain health issue as a whole so we’ll look at
not only depression and anxiety but also dementia and Alzheimer’s right now I’m
about to be joined by dr. Daniel Eamon who’s been celebrated as one of
America’s most popular brain health doctors
he’s regularly featured on PBS and has pioneered innovative research in
neurodegenerative disease he’s going to share with you a life-saving protocol
based on an acronym bright minds these simple tips actually do make a
difference you can carry out the bright minds protocol in the comfort of your
own home in your own living environments isn’t that amazing
truly empowerment is the key to gaining control of your brain and your body but
what I’ve discovered over a long time is if you want to keep your brain healthy
or rescue it if it’s headed to the dark place you have to prevent or treat the
11 major risk factors that steal your mind and we know what they are and and
it’s not just us I mean other people are coming to the fact that you’re not gonna
find one pill to get rid of Alzheimer’s disease that that was folly that there’s
not one way to get it and there’s not one way to treat it sort of like
depression there’s not one way to get it and there’s not one way to treat it and
so the doctors here at Amen Clinics we thought about it we wrote down all the
risk factors and we came up with a really cool mnemonic called bright minds
so if you can understand these eleven risk factors you really have the plan
for brain health and ultimately brain health is super simple I always say it’s
three things brain envy you got a care Freud was wrong
penis envy is not the cause of anybody’s problem I’ve been a psychiatrist forty
years have not seen one case the organ you really need to be concerned about is
three pounds of fat between your ears so got to care about it then you avoid
things that hurt it and you do things that help it so what are the things that
hurt it if we just go through that bright minds mnemonic it’ll teach us a
lot about how to have a great brain or rescue it if it’s in trouble so the
being bright mind stands for blood flow low blood flow is the number one number
one brain imaging predictor of Alzheimer’s
disease anything that damages your blood vessels damages your brain so under
blood flow it’s things like hypertension it’s having a stroke it’s any form of
heart disease heart attack heart arrhythmia most people don’t know if you
get a heart attack you have a 60% chance of being depressed major depression
within the next 18 months because it negatively impacts your brain if you
have a wreck tile dysfunction people go why are you talking about erectile
dysfunction well if you have blood flow problems
where it means they’re everywhere and according to a study from Harvard
40% of 40 year olds complain of erectile dysfunction 70% of seven year olds
complain of it which means 40 percent of 40 year olds and 70 percent of 70 year
olds also will have cognitive dysfunction and if you don’t exercise
and so for each of these risk factors it’s like how do I know if I have it and
what do I do about it so what you do is you tightly treat
hypertension any form of heart disease so you’re like serious about it and you
exercise and there are certain supplements that increase blood flow
gingko vinpocetine those are my two favorite and they’re foods that can
increase blood flow especially beats cayenne pepper rosemary oregano I mean
you can make it taste awesome the are and bright mind stands for retirement
and aging when you stop learning your brain starts dying and the older you get
the more serious you need to be right at 64 I need to be way more serious than I
was at 34 just because the gravity of age it’s stealing my reserve so I need
to be more serious not less seriously loneliness social isolation having short
telomeres all of this is involved in aging and so I want to counteract that
new learning new learning needs to be part of every day of my life and strengthening acetylcholine it’s another
neurotransmitter that helps with learning and memory and it tends to drop
with age or when my favorite supplements is huperzine a which actually boosts
acetylcholine in the brain so none of these things are hard
the AI is wicked it stands for inflammation and inflammation comes from
the Latin word to set a fire when you have chronic inflammation in your body
it’s like you have a low-level fire that’s destroying your organs now how do
you know if you have inflammation there’s a blood test c-reactive protein
you know if you have inflammation your face is red you have rosacea or you have
pain especially joint pain and I know I had something I shouldn’t have eaten and
the next day my knees hurt and I’m like I know this because for me dairy
increases inflammation interesting some people have this with wheat and with
autoimmunity disease this is an inflammatory condition essentially at
the core of it then inflammation is associated with both depression and
dementia and processed foods increase dementia and low levels of omega-3 fatty
acids in fact one recent study 97% of Americans had low level suboptimal
levels of omega-3 fatty acids we actually did a study here on 50
consecutive patients who are not taking fish oil 49 of them had suboptimal
levels of omega-3s and Omega threes are anti-inflammatory where Omega 6 is think
corn and soy a lot of processed foods they increase inflammation so you can
decrease inflammation just with your diet I mean food is medicine or it’s
poison and so I recommend fish oil for people but I want them to know they’re
important health numbers like c-reactive protein Peter Drucker was a very famous
business consultant said you can’t change what you don’t measure and so we
like measuring things here we’re to measure your brain we want to know your
important health numbers the G is genetics but people have the
genetic thing wrong people go all while I have Alzheimer’s in my family there’s
nothing I can do with it and I’m like it’s the wrong way to think
about it I have obesity and my family and heart disease in my family but I
don’t have heart disease and I’m not fat why I don’t give in to the behaviors
making it likely to be so so if you have Alzheimer’s in your family you need to
be serious about brain health as soon as possible yeah the H is head trauma
wicked in the sense that they’re 2 million new head injuries every year in
the United States it’s a silent epidemic and we have no love or respect for this
soft organ that runs our life we let children hit soccer balls with their
head or play tackle football Hara Damon clinics we did the world’s first and
largest brain imaging study on football players we have over 220 players and
high levels of damage you can’t hit it repeatedly helmets don’t protect you
against brain damage they protect you against skull fractures but your brain
floats in water so you get boom a big hit in body braids which tears blood
vessels damages neurons bruises the brain it’s not a good thing yeah so
protecting your brain or rehabilitating it 80% of our football players were
better in as little as two months just by putting them on this bright lines
program Wow Tia’s toxins they’re everywhere
it’s rampant when I first started imaging people I could clearly see
alcohol is not a health food it decreases overall blood flow and you’re
not eating the glass of wine twice a week and you’d be okay twice a day you
have a smaller brain and I would just City just yeah and I didn’t take one for
that reason when it comes to the brain size matters
you don’t want a smaller brain and why my wife is a nurse
why does she put alcohol on your skin before she gives you a shot because it
kills the bacteria well what do you have in your gut a hundred trillion bugs that
make neurotransmitters that help you digest your food the detoxify your body
that make hormones do you really want to pour poison into those poor bugs and
once they dive in parasites get more opportunity to take over right and yeast
and it’s not good I mean protecting your God is a major strategy to boost your
immunity we’ll get to there but in addition what the scans taught us is all
sorts of other toxins heavy metal exposure let is clearly a neurotoxin
mercury is a neurotoxin mold so damaging to brain function so it is critical to
support the four organs of detoxification so the first thing is you
have to prevent exposure limit or decrease exposure there’s an app I like
a lot it’s called think dirty it lets you scan all of your personal products
and walk easy they tell you on a scale of 1 to 10 how quickly they’re killing
you and when I first found it half my bathroom I got throughout his like it
was toxic and my shaving cream that I’ve been using since I was I don’t know 15
and it’s just it’s loaded with hormone disruptors and it’s like I don’t want my
hormones disrupted I want my thyroid to be healthy I want my testosterone to be
healthy and so people go but isn’t it more expensive to buy healthy stuff and
yes and no so the shaving cream I was just telling my wife this this morning
is maybe twice as expensive it lasts 10 times longer so it’s actually more less
expensive so limit exposure and then you want to
support your kidneys drink more water your God eat more fiber your liver kill
the alcohol and eat foods called brassicas those are detoxifying
vegetables broccoli cabbage brussel sprouts kale Carl for surfers vegetables
yes detoxify your body so food is medicine and then your skin so it’s
sweat with exercise or saunas and there’s a study from Finland that people
who took know saunas versus two to three saunas a week the two to three son is a
week had 30% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease the ones who took saunas five to
seven times a week had a 60% decreased risk and saunas in a new study have been
shown to actually treat depression so you want to support your organs of
detoxification which one’s the best is it just the
regular Sun or the infrared sauna infrared sauna has really good research
but probably all of them can be helpful because they’re all triggering the sweat
and so if somebody doesn’t even have access to that but they’re actually
letting themselves sweat through running or something else they’re in a hot room
and they’re letting themselves sweat then it’s the same core principle is
that right oh yes yeah which is awesome because that’s why the one thing that
makes me sweat because I don’t like running boring table tennis I actually
play table tennis at a really high level so it’s a coordination exercise and the
more you learn the better you get and I just swept it’s awesome I love that the
M and bright minds is mental health issues so often and overlooked and
ignored depression doubles the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and women quite
Drupal’s the risk in men some people actually think lately later life
depression and Men is a program is a predictor of alzheimerís disease
post-traumatic stress disorder being under chronic stress chronic stress
shrinks a part of your brain called the hippocampus hippocampus is Greek for
seahorse so it’s like you have these two thumb shaped seahorse structures in your
brain and it’s one of the only parts of your brain that actually produces new
cells every day so you have 700 baby seahorses that your brain is producing
and it’s your behavior that grows them or murders them so my 15 year old
daughter she and I both produce about 700 a day
hers are more likely to be integrated into the big seahorse where older people
like me it’s more likely to die off so I’m not okay with that
so I have to do the right things to put it in a healing environment so if you
have depression doesn’t mean you have to take medicine head-to-head against the
antidepressants fish oil has been found to be equally effective exercise walking
like your light four times a week equally effective two antidepressants
learning how not to believe every stupid thing you think I call it killing the
ants the automatic negative thoughts that steal your happiness and my
cognitive behavioral therapy yes but people think of that as work they think
of killing ants is an adventure I’ve a children’s book called captain snout and
the superpower questions it’s you don’t want to believe every stupid thing you
think you need to discipline your mind so they’re natural ways to heal your
mind and your brain the second eye in bright minds is immunity and infections
it’s one of the big lessons I’ve learned from looking at the brain you can be
depressed because you have Lyme disease you can have OCD because you have a
reaction to strap herpes I’ve seen herpes encephalitis and devastate
the brain so we want to boost your immunity now your gut has a lot of your
immune tissue and so having a healthy gut is really important to your immunity
along with vitamin D eighty percent of the population is low in it and normals
between thirty and a hundred I never wanted to be at the bottom of any of my
classes so I’d like to keep my level close to eighty there’s a research study
that shows people are over 40 compared to people who are under 20 have half the
risk of cancer and cancer is not good for your brain right I mean the chronic
stress the chemotherapy it’s a toxin and stands for nor hormone deficiencies you
have to measure them low thyroid goes with low function of your brain low
testosterone which is just rampant in our society even among teenage boys I
think it’s because of the toxins their mothers put on their bodies
when testosterone is low your libido is low your strength is low your motivation
is low your mood is low and your memory is low and so I want to optimize it and
one of the best ways to optimize testosterone is kill the sugar and start
lifting weights and so I’m 64 and my testosterone was really good and I don’t
take extra but I don’t eat much sugar and I workout so you don’t have to go to
the medicine but if you did those things and it wasn’t working I would supplement
with bioidentical hormones the D and bright minds is diabesity which is a
combination of having high blood sugar and or you’re overweight or obese I
published two studies that show as your weight goes up actual physical size and
function of your brain goes down and that should scare the fat off anyone
and it’s like why what is fat – fat increases inflammation in your body so
that’s one of our risk factors that stores toxins another one of our risk
factors and fat disrupts your hormones it actually takes healthy testosterone
and turns it into unhealthy cancer-promoting forms of estrogen and
so as I was learning about this and I tried to lose the extra 30 pounds I
picked up during my residency for about 20 years but when I saw the research on
when your weight goes up the size of your brain goes down I’m like okay now
I’m serious and I’m in the same size jeans I was when I was a teenager which
makes me very happy and then the last so you got to get your diet right diet is
so important and then the S and bright minds is sleep sleep apnea triples the
risk of Alzheimer’s disease we can actually see evidence of it on the scans
so we’re always sending people to sleep labs and making sure if they have sleep
apnea we get it treat it now let’s come back to depression and anxiety and learn
more about the tools that you can use to experience the beauty of the gift of
life today okay so this is an interesting sort of answer as far as how
medications and impact mental health and the first thing to understand is that
medications never heal illness and that doesn’t mean I never use medications I
do believe they have their place but ideally in the short-term use and the
reason for that is is because what they do is that they they help to suppress
symptoms but then the brain actually pushes back in other words if you give
somebody a prescription for anxiety for example like xanax or valium well it
helps to decrease the amount of neural neuronal activity in the brain so that
slows everything down it makes you feel calmer but then what the brain does is
it it pushes back and essentially it actually up regulates the amount
type excitability in the brain to counterbalance that so pretty soon if
you’re not dealing with the underlying issue you end up with actually just just
as much anxiety but now you’re on a medication that your tolerance and and
dependent on and and so then over time what happens is your symptoms actually
get worse and worse but now you have the medication plus you have the side
effects of medication so what they’re seeing is that for example with anxiety
medications that can create long-term chronic anxiety with antidepressant
medications that can create long-term chronic refractory depression with
antipsychotic medications it actually makes the brain super sensitive to
dopamine which means that they’re going to tend to actually have more chronic
episodes of psychosis and not only that it actually makes people both yawning
psychotics and antidepressants it actually makes them apathetic so they
meaning they don’t really care about things anymore and it makes them have
problems with mental processing like memory and that sort of thing it also
starts impairing frontal lobe function which is important for logic and
self-control and that sort of thing and so what I deal with a lot and I talk
with patients when they’re on these medications long term first of all it’s
very difficult for them to get off and secondly they actually start missing out
on the joy of life and and they start saying things they say things like you
know I don’t even I’m not really even in touch with who I am anymore or my
feelings and and yes I’m not depressed but I’m also not happy and I’m I’m not
really fulfilled and so you can start to understand how these medications even
though they might help the symptoms short term in the long term can actually
cause more harm you know a challenge is that a lot of people will when they go
the doctor with anxiety or depression they’re recommended an antidepressant a
selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor which is designed to help you retake
serotonin to get more mileage out of it make it more efficient the problem is
it’s a you know that it’s analogous to using a
gasoline additive in an empty gasoline tank so in the South we say you know if
you don’t have any gasoline in the gasoline tank and you’re using the
gasoline additive it ain’t gonna work it just doesn’t work it doesn’t you know
there’s no there’s no benefit from using gasoline additive in an empty gasoline
tank and those were the anxiety and depression you know we see with
fibromyalgia they’ve depleted that that brain chemical serotonin over the years
poor sleep the stress that they’ve been under maybe taking prescription
medications that have created more problems poor diet sedentary lifestyle
because you know maybe they think they really can’t do a whole lot because of
the pain but most patients are going to be prescribed a selective serotonin
reuptake inhibitor like prozac or celexa zoloft and the you know Jonathan the
problem of those is those antidepressants don’t make serotonin
they’re only designed to help you hang on to serotonin but again if you’re
trying to use something to help you hang on to serotonin there’s nothing there
it’s probably not going to do anything and this is the reason why we know that
when you look at a meta-analysis of studies 70 percent of time an
antidepressant is no better than a sugar pill no better
than a placebo and so oftentimes what happens as patients will go on these
medications and it will work for a period of time but that eventually quits
working in a big part of that is this thing called down-regulation which the
brain receptor these receptor sites in the brain for these medications
eventually they start to shrivel up and disappear and you can lose up to 40 to
60 percent of these receptor sites so eventually the medications have nowhere
you know like a docking station to dock on to and they just quit working and
then patients will go from maybe taking paxil and in gaining 40 60 pounds which
happens on our medication to maybe taking lexapro but again no one has an
antidepressant deficiency when it comes to depression and anxiety there are
you different types of medications that are often prescribed by doctors
the most common are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors SSRIs which includes
the well-known brand names Prozac lexapro Zoloft and paxil another fairly
common type of medication is selective serotonin norepinephrine inhibitors
SNRIs which include brand names like cymbalta and effexor there are other
types that are less commonly used like na s si s and Mao is other anti-anxiety
drugs include benzodiazepines this includes xanax valium and ativan people
on these medications often develop a drug tolerance and therefore have to
increase their dosages which creates a situation right for addiction in fact
benzos themselves can actually cause depression as a side effect so what are
some of the side effects of depression and anxiety medications common problems
can range from nausea and dizziness insomnia and sexual problems considering
insomnia and lack of sleep is a causative factor in depression how can
it not be seen as inhibitive of recovery to take a drug that limits your ability
to get good quality sleep sexual problems often include reduced sexual
desire and reduce sensitivity some people especially children and young
adults are more prone to experience suicidal thoughts while taking SSRIs
isn’t this the very thing that we’re seeking to prevent we’re talking about
taking people who are struggling with painful anxious mental states and adding
to that with these destabilizing side effects social norms media and the
medical industry communicate to us that taking a prescription medication is a
normal and everyday occurrence as if we had all been doing this for centuries
and it’s just a part of life however it’s not the intent side-effects of some
medications are incredibly harmful and sometimes irreversible so our
medications the only solutions when dealing with depression and anxiety is
talk therapy the only solution is they’re more a person can do for their
mental well-being one of the big problems with any psychiatric medication
is that they all have the possibility of causing 100
different possible side-effects and in the case of benzodiazepines like xanax
and and volume one of the most dangerous things in my mind is that they can make
people often very impulsive and so sometimes they can make people make
decisions that they normally wouldn’t make and because and the reason for that
is because they affect the frontal lobe of the brain so they might make people
make poor driving decisions for example and get in a car accident or they might
make people make very poor relationship decisions things like medications like
Prozac and other antidepressants one of the big warnings that they have there is
that it can actually increase suicidal thoughts and sometimes actions there
have been people that when they start these medications actually do things to
harm themselves or other people too so these medications are not benign and we
have to be very careful in understanding that they can be there they’re they’re
potent drugs and if they’re not used correctly they can do more harm than
good there have been cases where people actually have done things that are
completely out of character for them because their brain was altered with
with medication you know where where because they lose that fear of
consequences that they might do something very violent to somebody or
even to them to themselves and so it’s it’s something that we have to be aware
of when the phone gets called to emergency to police or you know and
there’s been a violent act in this household or I’ve done something violent
the first question that gets asked is are you on any medications or are they
on any medication yeah yeah and which type of medications are they talking
about which ones like well I’m as I would guess that most of the time
they’re they’re concerned about benzodiazepines because you know in in
in in my experience that those ones have the biggest effect on the frontal lobe
especially if those are combined with alcohol it’s a very lethal con
combination in a lot of ways one of the scary things is – I mean nowadays you
have the opioid epidemic and people dying from opiates and and the
combination of opiates with benzodiazepines like xanax and volume I
mean that’s what can often be very lethal even paying people to sleep at
night you know they’ll just fall asleep in there and never wake up I do my very
best in order to share this information with thousands of people but thousands
of people which I have reached is only a drop in the bucket it’s not a million
people that I reached when I would do it a national TV show on relationships and
sell millions of books you cannot say these things on national TV these things
do not go into the media because the media gets its money from the drug
companies eighty ninety four a seventy eighty percent of the money comes from
advertising money comes from the pharmaceutical industry and the natural
foods industry the natural supplement interesting industry is their is their
competitor and they don’t want to be put out of business and so what happens is
that the the kind of insights that you’re sharing with people the doctors
you’re interviewing the researchers you interview this information doesn’t go
mainstream because mainstream doesn’t get paid by this industry they’re paid
by the pharmaceutical industry so without the work you’re doing people
cannot hear this and I’ve watched some of your other documentaries and I
watched them I bought the product I didn’t even watch
the products he at once I got it I took my notes but I bought it just to
support you and the work that you’re doing because this is the most important
work we have a health crisis and the crisis is not gee we don’t have money
for drugs and medical treatments are so expensive and we need everybody have
more insurance to cover the drugs and the things that are making them sick er
and sicker and sicker the medical crisis has nothing to do with the cost of drugs
and hospitals and insurance the medical crisis is the lack of knowledge of how
people can be healthy doctors are not taught to teach people to be healthy
they’re not authorities on how though the opposite their authorities on
sickness and disease and how to take away symptoms in emergency situations
which will have down the stream side effects well you know what happened was
back in the 1950s clinically people stumbled upon the fact that some of
these drugs that they were using for example for nausea that they would also
have an effect of decreasing psychotic symptoms and some of the patients and so
they said oh okay well these drugs actually help to block dopamine so maybe
that’s why people get psychotic and so then they started coming up with these
dopamine blocking drugs and and and then that’s when Thorazine came on the market
and you had this tidal wave of Thorazine being being prescribed and then shortly
around around that time you also started having different medications like elavil
and some of these other antidepressants come on the market with the idea they
okay norepinephrine and dopamine if we just get the right balance balance of
these then people’s depression anxiety is gonna get better and then after a
while they figured well it’s not getting as good as we’d like but then serotonin
maybe serotonin is what actually is is doing so then that’s when prozac came on
the scene and and then you had the prozac revolution so all of these drugs
were part of what we call the mono amine hypothesis meaning mono amines are
actually those chemical messengers in the brain that nerve cells sent to each
other to communicate and they and what researchers were were thinking is that
okay if we just get the right balance of those in the brain that’s actually what
is going to help improve people’s mood State or decrease their psychotic
symptoms or whatever but the truth of the matter is that the story is much
more complex than that and it’s not just how much serotonin is available in the
brain how much norepinephrine dopamine but it’s also the love the levels that
are available throughout neural networks and it so it’s it’s a lot more related
to the way that the nerve cells interact with each other through the whole brain
not just the levels of these neurotransmitters and and so you know
what started happening in the 50s and 60s is that you started to go from this
psychosocial approach in mental health care to a more medical or medication
approach and this was a wonderful opportunity for the pharmaceutical
industry to say AHA now we finally have drugs to actually treat mental illness
this was where the National Institute of Mental Health started funneling all of
their resources instead of trying to explore more holistic approaches to
actually treating mental health to finding drugs to cure mental health
disorders and that was driven I think largely by trying to make profit on
treating people’s mental illness and of course that did two things number one it
really didn’t solve the underlying issue with mental disorders but it also number
two it kept us from continuing to find things that would actually be effective
so I think what happened is that it’s really made us at least 40 years behind
right now where we should be in mental health care because we have lost a lot
of wonderful time that we could have spent really looking for things to
address the underlying causes of mental illness instead of just masking symptoms
which is all that medications really do well you know in my career my goal is to
really help people to discover what the underlying issues are that are
triggering their mental illness so that if they if they can figure those out and
address those then they can actually get well instead of just masking symptoms
through medication management and to me that’s really rewarding because then
people become free and feeling like they’re ball-and-chain to
medication for the rest of their life and look I’m not against medication I
mean I use it every day but it is a tool and we should be using it I think as a
bridge to helping people move address those underlying issues and then get
well instead of just saying well this is the rest of your life on medication so
what I found over the years and my personal experience as well this is how
the whole thing started is nutritional deficiencies those are really for me the
cornerstone you’ve got to get that right and if you don’t you’re really going to
be challenged to ever overcome any kind of mood disorder we really are what we
eat more importantly we are what we digest we know that no one has a prozac
deficiency yeah and but you might have a an amino acid deficiency amino acids are
the building blocks combined with B vitamins magnesium vitamin C that’s what
makes these neurotransmitters these brain chemicals these hormones that
allow us to be happy to help us control our moods to help us digest our food
regulate our pain cycle regulate our sleep/wake cycles super super part of
this whole thing awesome so why do you think people are deficient because a lot
of people like and especially a lot of people with depression anxiety they’re
eating healthy according to what they know it’s not like they’re trying to eat
bad a lot of them are trying to eat really well yeah how could it be so
simple that it’s a deficiency yeah well I don’t think it’s simple and I think
there’s different causes different triggers for different people and that
really creates the big challenge for most doctors because where do you start
and with 5-row and particularly when they present themselves with 30 symptoms
sometimes doctors will look at them and dismiss them as being a hypochondriac
but which you know I’m not you know nobody wants to fake this right so
nothing can be further from the truth but with anxiety and depression there’s
different things you can come along that can cause depletion in these certain
chemicals low thyroid leaky gut food allergies there’s a big long list of
things that can cause sieze no matter how well you’re trying
to eat if you’re not careful you know it can sabotage you are all depleted when you eat sugar so
once again we come up against high blood sugar our blood sugar spikes anything
that makes us feel really good anything that makes us feel that big dopamine
rush that big excitement you just lost minerals okay that’s why women when they
get married it’s like this big huge thing and they get depressed afterwards
it’s like what I married this guy what happened you know it’s it’s the men when
they don’t this men don’t know if I get depressed they just get passive they
don’t have the same juice that they had before it’s they just ran out of
minerals this big positive thing happens people crash what is the crash it’s
mineral deficiency and I like to use this analogy that we’re all born with a
stress coping savings account and and in that stress coping savings account we
have certain chemicals that allow us to deal with stress we have serotonin and
dopamine and cortisol and DHEA we have vitamins and minerals we have
pantothenic acid and these chemicals allow us then to be able to handle
stress and the more stress that we get under the more likely we are to use
these chemicals and if we’re not careful we can bankrupt them those are
fibromyalgia and even those with anxiety and depression
somewhere over this period of time of these stressors and it could be chronic
stress a challenging job it could be challenging you know marriage it can be
a surgery and illness you know there’s different things that come along again
the straw that breaks the camel’s back but when that happens they bankrupt
these chemicals and then stress becomes so magnified that then they’re kind of
like the canary in the mind you know anything can set them off if you’ve got
someone that only prescribed drugs they’re going to be thinking about
minerals or parasites or gut biome and those are critical because we are a
whole the brain does not exist in isolation
and we’re learning more and more of this and we will we will see mainstream
medicine adapt these to some degree more or less sooner or later because it’s
just undeniable at this point in time but but the head and the send approach
is hard to get over and hard change as they’ve been taught to believe
that a drug will fix whatever and that’s that that’s the only solution they’ve
been taught to disrespect herbs and Nutritionals and all of these other
paradigms so you got to first of all do it yourself a lot of study a lot of
homework or go to a practitioner who is open to these possibilities
I’m here with dr. Lena via Nova and we are here in some patient records and
we’re discovering what it what it’s all about what is it the people are
deficient and that makes them unhappy what is it that people need in order to
to send off those happy signals to create a great mood and to have someone
to be experienced the dynamics of life as well we don’t want to try to make
people perpetually happy we’re trying to make things operate normally so they’re
happy when they ought to be happy and rather than you know if some of these
levels are off they could win the lottery or have the most beautiful day
with their family and feel like empty right and that’s what’s the problem with
these numbers being off absolutely we’re not we’re not trying to force a change
we are working on optimizing the body’s systemic engines so that the body can
function normally if the body’s engines are functioning optimally then your
brain chemistry is gonna function optimally and then you can experience
everything the life has to offer you’re right I mean we all have good days we
all have bad days but we need to be able to process things in a normal healthy
way absolutely I love that I love that our brains are designed and our bodies
and we’re designed to be resilient so like we can get a hit off our horse with
some really bad news but that’s also not designed to like lead us to to want to
jump off the building you know it’s it’s it’s all about being able to respond to
that you know challenge of life in a way that is constructive and moving in the
right direction and and a lot of people are just shooting at life I mean like
like like like this guy or the gal that that the levels are just too low so you
know you give somebody like that a challenge a really big life challenge
they really don’t have the tools it’s like going into an army with you know at
war with you know my slingshot right it’s just like you’re not gonna win it’s
so true what happens is that is that when the brain chemistry is off because
of whatever the underlying cause is when the brain chemistry is off the
perception of the world around them is skewed to the point where when they have
something bad that happens it completely derails them or maybe something that
wouldn’t be bad or derail anybody else suddenly derails the person and it’s
because the brain chemistry is off because the person has systemic engines
that are not working properly and beautiful and that’s a really really
empathetic piece for those of you that are strong people quote-unquote people
that are are always on top of things and maybe you have been for a lot of your
life and now you can’t work out why things are just falling apart and why
things that you know it normally used to be able to deal with you just not coping
with them right now and you know don’t beat yourself up don’t feel like you
just need a muscle it up ask for help get help find the answers let’s get some
answers here today yeah let’s take a look at this
so I’m looking here at these like let’s give this guy name because we’re being
yeah thoughtful to this person let’s call him Jeff Jeff okay so Jeff here is
Amy but this is a real person that has been deducted be in your waiver and he
has come in and this is his first test is that right yes this is his first test
so this is we’re calling him Jeff and he’s 46 years old
and he came in let’s take a look at this he came in in October of last year
yeah and he was really really struggling with a lot of anxiety he was having
sleep issues he was having gut issues and and he was he was definitely having
some depression he had developed also some increased food sensitivities and
such and very very well-educated yeah work
the corporate world the guys got it together or at least everyone thinks
he’s got it together you know that’s like but on the yeah we totally know
what that’s like but on the inside the guy is feeling horrible so he comes to
us and and we ordered we ordered labs on him so that we could
start looking for what’s out of balance and what’s not working and the tests
that I wanted to share with you today not I didn’t bring I didn’t bring every
lab that we did on him but I brought the brain chemistry one because so many
people don’t know that that there is even such a thing as brain chemistry
testing so I think this is really valuable for people to get to see this I
love that thank you so so let’s go through each one of the associates
serotonin is in the low here and and by the way he had been on SSRIs so he had
been on prescription medication to help increase his serotonin levels but as we
could see here his serotonin levels were still very low so that attempt to
artificially prop up serotonin for him didn’t work and it may have for a time
like it’s possible it’s very possible that this could have been in the normal
range for the first you know six months a year two years but how long are you
being on that medication any only any remember he had been on and off
medications I think for about 15 years yeah but today it makes sense it over
time the ring things that like not work anymore but this is so this is what he
told me even with the medications he never really got relief and we can look
here at the test and we can see why even if the medication had brought up his
serotonin levels almost all of his other neurotransmitters with the exception of
this one in this one they were all way too low he didn’t have enough of his
other neurotransmitters that also helped him to not feel anxious and depressed
and tired so you know as you can see here he had he had you know for example
he had low dopamine we can see that all of these are low but we’ll just touch on
the low dopamine here with low dopamine he’s also going
to have anxiety and he’s gonna have depression and he’s gonna have anxiety
to the point of having impulsivity even mm-hmm which is which is like he may
feel so anxious sometimes that he just wants to put a backpack on and run you
know because he’s not feeling well everyone will exhibit everyone will
exhibit impulsivity differently yeah so you know there are some patients who
get angry like I had a teenage boy whose neurotransmitters were off he was having
this this excessive impulsivity that was combined with a fight-or-flight response
because of the combination of his neurotransmitters so he was in
fight-or-flight all the time and when he was on the football team and the kids
would tackle him during practice he would have a very impulsive
fight-or-flight response and he would go off on these other kids and just start
tackling the hell out of them he was hurting the other kids and then he would
feel so bad about his response that he would run off to the sidelines and he
would start vomiting because he was he was just feeling horrible but he
couldn’t help himself so he was beating up on these other kids when he would get
tackled because it was an impulsive response because the brain chemistry was
off and this is a really good kid like we’ve worked with him so this particular
kid that I’m talking about he no longer has this issue he’s back on the football
team he’s not hurting the other kids and he’s not vomiting out on the sidelines
anymore but this is an example in the whole experience the whole experience
was but this guy he’s 46 so he’s able to control his impulsive you know the
impulsivity that he has he’s able to control that better and he’s having kids
so he could finish the story and the kid because I’m really interested you say
all these levels are off the dopamine what was it and and then he resolved it
through some of the things were about to share is that absolutely absolutely the
same processes it’s the same process you know no matter what’s going on we’re
looking for the root causes so so with this with this 46 year old that we’re
calling Jeff he was he was feeling a lot of anxiety he was feeling depressed he
was having issues sleeping he was having increased food sensitivities and and
this is what we saw we fourth and we addressed all of the
imbalances that we found in his body we worked on anti-parasitic protocols we
worked on putting him on an anti-inflammatory vegan based diet and
we did gut repair with him so we addressed it all from a very
foundational nutritional level to remove the interferences that were not allowing
his own body to make his own brain chemistry and this is a process that
this particular patient this particular client has been with me for for many
many months and he was one who actually took it with it was a little slower
process with him because he had developed so many food and chemical
sensitivities that when we went to put him on a protocol to add supplements we
could only add one at a time one month at a time yeah so it took him all much
longer time to see the results but why did it take so long to put the
supplements in why do I have one at a time he had developed so much chemical
sensitivity and had so many toxins in his body that anytime that we would put
any kind of nutrition in his body he would have a response to the natural
supplements like vitamin b12 folate vitamin D great just natural things that
are going to allow his body to heal but he was a case that it took longer than
average but look at his results now and he’s feeling amazing and he’s able to do
a full protocol he has been able to reintroduce foods back into his diet now
that we have done his gut repair you know foods that he previously couldn’t
eat now he can eat them and he doesn’t have a problem anymore
so it’s it’s really really amazing and if we look here right so let’s have a
look at that sorry sorry here I see a big difference and so
you know here’s what my layman’s look at this so clearly they’ve got the red is
when it’s either too low or too high so just remember when you’re looking at
some here you’re not looking for everything to be it’s not like you’re
looking at a score card when you’re in grade school and you’re looking forever
to be up in the high range you don’t you don’t actually want that you want what
you want to do is you want to have everything in the normal range and if it
goes in the normal range and this particularly graph they’ve just
Illustrated that by this blue outlining in the gray that’s what it was straight
to something being normal so he’s gavel was actually right it was on there the
lower end of normal it was on the low end of normal yeah but it was you know
within a range that wouldn’t necessarily in my layman’s perspective be the most
symptomatic thing these these are where he’s gonna be feeling symptoms and even
in these high ones because as she was excited to me doctor Atlanta that these
like these two that are high he’s still gonna be feeling the effects of these
because they’re in excess and and they need to be regulated
oh absolutely like like this this just makes it really easy for you here yeah
you know if the if this brain chemical is too high or too low it also
contributes to anxiousness it’s not always just a serotonin issue if you’re
epinephrine levels go up you go into fight or flight yeah and again you’re
gonna have anxious and anxiousness as well and sleep difficulties he had many
neurotransmitters here all contributing they were all like piling up on each
other just contributing to the way that he was feeling got it
no thank you and so it’s like you know I think Goldilocks right it was just just
the right amount this sheet it was too hot too cold share was too big or too
small whatever it was but like it needed to be just right and there’s that
there’s that number and our body is a design so thankfully you don’t need to
be a rocket scientist to understand all of this your body wouldn’t actually put
everything in its the right category and correct everything if it doesn’t have
things are impeding that or deficiencies know exactly everything in the body
needs to be in balance whether it’s your blood pressure or your blood sugar or
the levels of oxygen in your body or your brain chemistry everything needs to
be inside of a certain balance even hormones right you don’t want them too
high and you don’t want them too low and brain chemistry is no exception you
don’t want them too high but you don’t want them too low either amazing and say
how would he describe describe his symptoms now like you you briefly
mentioned but like I was on the phone with him the other day and he told me
that he said I haven’t felt this good in a long long
time and when I do have a little bit of anxiety it’s a fraction of what it was
like I’m handling it like a normal person would handle it he’s feeling much
much much better yeah he is feeling amazing he’s he he really was very very
committed to the process and he saw the end result with again removing the
interferences and changing his lifestyle and his foods and understanding how to
use food as medicine and and what supplements to take in what dose for
what and for how long that we need to do it and we were able to see huge changes
for the people as you’re watching this looking at tests that you can do is an
excellent thing there they’re available and we would recommending certain ones
that are really cost effective and they’re great another great way that can
work in tandem or in substituting there’s there’s a really cool fact if
you want to know what probably you may have and you don’t have any money to
spend on testing this is the solution for you
and so dr. Murphy has developed a test that can help you self diagnose and and
you know use that word how you will we’re not really making any claims here
but what I’m saying here is that you can use this to try to work out where the
problem might lie in terms of with your neurotransmitters this questionnaire is
designed to help you to isolate what particular neurotransmitters you’re
deficient in and then just as importantly what amino acids to take to
be able to correct these neurotransmitter or brain deficiencies
so if you look at the first one here to s and that stands for serotonin now
serotonin is the happy hormone you know the higher your serotonin level the
higher your pain threshold the higher serotonin and less anxious you are happy
you are it allows you have mental clarity you have more serotonin
receptors in your intestinal tract nning doing your brain so it helps with IBS
but serotonin is super super important and serotonin is as I mentioned the
happy hormone and so if you you you check three or more of these
statements here that if they apply to you there’s probably a good sign that
you’re low in serotonin and and that you you’re going to benefit by by
supplementing some of the supplements I mentioned here in just a minute so if
you’re low and serotonin it’s hard to go sleep you may find it’s hard to save
sleep you often find yourself irritable your emotions lack irrational
rationality you occasionally experience unexpected tears just you feel depressed
a lot of time norway’s often times is more problematic
you know you’re more sensitive to it than you’ve ever been before
you have flare-ups you know you feel irritable angry sometimes you just fly
off the handle for no reason and oftentimes you’ll see that you prefer to
be left alone you kind of want to hibernate and and those with low
serotonin oftentimes find that their pain is magnified so they’ve got a lower
pain threshold pain and starting in aches and pains here and there that’s so
true in the fibromyalgia community they have pain kind of all over but if that
any of those apply to you three or more apply to you then that’s a sign that you
are low in serotonin and serotonin doesn’t come from a selective serotonin
reuptake inhibitor antidepressant it comes from an amino acid called
tryptophan tryptophan is an amino acid that you should get in your diet in a
biting protein and that tryptophan turns into an 5ad roxie tryptophan which is a
supplement that you can buy over the counter anywhere in the world this
natural supplement if you start taking 5-hydroxytryptophan you can then create
serotonin now these amino acids that I’m going to mention with here in this
moment they need to be taken with a good optimal daily allowance multivitamin
what’s optimal daily allowance mean that it’s got to be much stronger than then
the RDA the recommend disease allowance so with the optimal daily allowance it
means that you’re going to need to take a multivitamin that has sometimes a
hundred times to 500 times more of the B vitamins and say the RDA but you weren’t
taking B taking a good multivitamin the multivitamin with all the B vitamins
vitamin C magnesium and the amino acid is what
creates these these brain chemicals in the case of serotonin
I recommend especially if you have sleep issues that you start with 5-htp 30
minutes before bed on an empty stomach and and you increase each night to get
to 300 milligrams and what you should see is that helps you get into a deeper
more restorative sleep now you’ll see here the next one is the O group and O’s
stands for opioids now a lot of people will try them to self medicate
themselves increase the opioid production by exercise opioids are
stimulating your natural pain chemicals in Catalans endorphins by exercise so
I’m a runner like to exercise and one of the joys I get from that is I get this
opioid boost without having to take you know opioids and you can do the same
thing if you find that any of these statements three or more of these
statements apply to you then I’m going to recommend you do some of the
supplementation here I’m going to share with you in just a second but you’ll see
that in opioids you’ll find that often times that you know life seems
incomplete you feel shy with all but your closest friends you have feelings
of insecurity you often feel unequal to others you have a low self-esteem when
things go right you feel undeserving you occasionally feel that life is kind of
passed you by and you frequently feel kind of fearful just kind of anxious
just kind of stressed out you don’t know why oftentimes people that are low in
opioids will self-medicate if it’s not with exercise maybe they’ll
self-medicate with sedatives or alcohol or marijuana or cocaine so you if that
speaks to you then what you want to do to boost to actually create opioids
naturally is taken over-the-counter supplement an amino acid called D L
phenyl Alain and typically you start with about 2,000 milligrams of DL filing
you need to take it on an empty stomach I recommend you take it 30 minutes
before you eat breakfast but start with 2,000 milligrams you could take 2,000 in
the morning if you if you don’t notice that mental boost or
that help the help that you want in your your moods then you can add another two
thousand milligrams in the afternoon now I wouldn’t take it past three pm because
it is stimulating that’s one of the nice things about DL Phil Allen if you feel
like you don’t have a lot of energy it will help you mentally and physically
the other benefit from DL PA that I use it a lot for from my fibro patient is as
a natural pain blocker so it helps to block pain so it’s a really good
treatment for that and the great thing is it’s all natural you know which is
great and you can use l-glutamine to help you get more bang at a taking DL PA
see how glutamine is another over-the-counter amino acid that you can
get you can combine it with the DL PA and it helps you to get more out of it
now the next group is called the G group or GABA gamma-aminobutyric acid
obviously easier to say gaba now gaba is your is is very calming very relaxing if
you have three or more of these and you’re probably low in gaba you often
feel anxious for no reason you sometimes feel free-floating anxiety you feel edgy
or stressed out a lot of times you feel like you just can’t get your emotions
under control often times you can’t fall asleep you can’t stay asleep you find
that you can’t just turn your mind off even though you know you want to do so
if that’s the case then gaba is probably deficient in your brain and you can
benefit yourself by taking the over-the-counter gamma amino butyric
acid or God what you can get it in any in any health food store it’s very
calming very relaxing it won’t make you feel dopey sleepy or hungover
none of those kind of things and it works really quickly it works within
about 15 to 20 minutes when you take it now you need to take it on an empty
stomach and I recommend you start with 500 milligrams 2,000 milligrams
typically that’s plenty and you can do it 2 3 2 or 3 times a day on empty
stomach to really calm thing down now some of you will take gamma-aminobutyric
acid and you won’t notice a benefit because for some people they can’t
observe orbit and if that’s the case don’t get
discouraged and I would recommend that you use another amino acid called
l-theanine l-theanine raises alpha brainwaves which are the same brain
waves that are raised when you meditate so l-theanine is very calming and with
the l-theanine you take a hundred to 200 milligrams two to three times a day on
an empty stomach again it won’t make you feel dopey tired or sleepy but you can
take that l-theanine and it’s a very calming you can take these amino acids
if you’re using prescription medications preferably if you’re working with your
doctor who’s trained in functional medicine or orthomolecular medicine like
I am but my patients typically are on antidepressants and until I get them
feeling better by using amino acid therapy and high doses of vitamins
middle amino acids essential fatty acids I’ll allow them to combine the two then
eventually once their moods pick up and anxiety goes down they can slowly with
my help or with their doctors they’ll slowly wean off their antidepressants
now if we look at the next categories the D group that stands for dopamine now
dopamine is a real powerful pain blocker but it’s also an antidepressant and with
dopamine you find that often times when you’re low in dopamine life life seems
to be less colorful less pleasurable then you just don’t really have a lot of
pleasure in your life anymore you feel like there’s no rewards in life now you
have an unexplained lack of concern maybe for family members or others in
the past that maybe you did maybe you’ve lost some of your spirituality you just
you just didn’t feel this disconnect with the world
and with with those around you you often find that you become very you know you
feel very bland you know so that’s a sign that you’re low in dopamine and now
you can boost your dopamine level you don’t have to take wellbutrin which is
an antidepressant it’s a stimulant they can cause all sorts of potential side
effects you want to take some ball to our effects or to boost dopamine levels
you can do it by taking l-phenylalanine which is an amino acid
that you should be getting your diet there may not be getting enough or you
just can’t absorb it correctly are you not getting getting me the amounts that
you need even particularly for your situation and I recommend with the
alkene allowing again you can get the service stomach you start with a
thousand milligrams you do that you take it once once or twice a day on empty
stomach and you can increase that each day up till you know two thousand three
thousand as much as four thousand milligrams of Alpena Island taking on an
empty stomach and you should see within a few days that mentally feel sharper
you feel better mood wise now it is stimulating it because it’s making
dopamine and that’s a stimulating neurotransmitter of brain chemical so
don’t take it make your day that can interfere with your sleep you can boost
the affective elfing allow me by combining l-glutamine and you take a
five hundred to a thousand milligrams of fel glutamine along with the healthy
allowing to make it work to be more impact than that so annual
city that you try elfine allowing and it’s not giving you the punch that you
need not helping if that’s the case then I recommend you use another amino acid
called s adenosine Mabon II which is a potent antidepressant for my 500
patients is a potent pain blocker it helps with mental and physical physical
energy and that’s called Sammy s adenosylmethionine and with Sammy you
typically start with 200 milligrams on an empty stomach first thing in the
morning before breakfast and each day increased by 200 milligrams until you
notice that when you take a particular dose whether that’s 200 or all that to
1200 milligrams then when you take it within 30 minutes you have more mental
clarity more energy mentally and physically and as I said it’s also a
really good pain bakit the next group is the in group which
this is another stimulating amino acid or neurotransmitter I’m sorry called
norepinephrine and Norden F northa nephron is made in your adrenal glands
your stress coping plant so it’s also made in the brain and when you get
deficient in Norco nephron you’re gonna start to see signs of low energy you get
up and go gotta come back you find that you get a decrease
you finally might start things and don’t finish them you tend to want to
hibernate you feel depressed a great deal of the time and you oftentimes will
feel like you’re threatened for no reason you just feel like a little bit
paranoid and you know again being disconnected now the neurotransmitter
norepinephrine comes from l-phenylalanine as I mentioned earlier
so by using the elephant allowing you’ll see that you can make go up in effort
and again I recommend you start with a thousand milligrams twice a day on empty
stomach and then you can increase up to 2,000 milligrams twice a day you have to
play around the doses and then again if you need to you can add L glutamine to
see if that helps the LP island if you don’t notice the difference in Alfio
alley then switch to s again some autonomy the reason why have people
maybe start with healthy amine is because it’s only salmon can be kind of
pricey and you start taking the higher doses you know can add up cost-wise
so you can start off with the healthy O’Malley and see how you do the
exception to that is from our 500 patients I find that typically the sámi
it’s a better pain blocker and so I would I recommend that most people or
fibro they go ahead and slide away start with the sámi so that’s the brain
function questionnaire as i mentioned earlier no one has an antidepressant
deficiency we have you may have deficiency of l-phenylalanine deficiency
5-htp a deficiency of gamma-aminobutyric acid the deficient of
s-adenosylmethionine or glutamine you may have those deficiencies that then
translate into mood disorders or translate into poor sleep or some of the
other issues we see no one has a drug deficiency so rather than using a drug
that doesn’t make these neurotransmitters rather than using like
a gasoline additive why not use you know gasoline to fill up
your time and you can you can take these these all-natural supplements without
all the potential side effects that you may have
by taking the antidepressants or taking anti-anxiety
I finally this is a great tool I don’t test people for for neural transposition
or offense married efficiency like I used to some 15 years ago because I find
this tool that I’ve developed is usually just spot-on and and this is something
that you can do right away and you know make some headway in your quest to feel
good again without getting a lot of testing so I
encourage you to play around with this and and see if you can make some headway
and then if you can’t reach out to a doctor who’s trained in orthomolecular
medicine or trained in functional medicine that can help you you know to
get the right combination that’s gonna be the best fit for you neither of us
are advocating that anybody would stop their medications when I’m working with
my fibromyalgia patients typically their own half a dozen to a dozen drugs when
they start with me and I would never take them off their medications
my goal is start to treat the underlying causes of their symptoms poor sleep low
energy pain IBS restless leg syndrome and as I get them on the right doses
high doses but the right in safe doses but the right combinations of vitamins
minerals amino acids that start to repair the biochemistry and they start
to feel better they start to have more stress coping chemicals to be able to
deal with life then and only then when I start to wean them off but you know put
potentially life what I call life training medications that are really not
working and and typically when I’m working about patients I see that 99
percent of time they can come off all their medications by correcting the
underlying issues with high doses of the vitamins and minerals but it takes time
some people though what we see is that they need to be on antidepressants
that’s just the way it is and there’s nothing wrong with that if that’s where
you’re at that’s where you’re at other people see that they can come off
banding depressants and they never miss them some people will try to come off of
them and they have all these withdrawal symptoms and so they think oh I need to
stay on my my celexa or my lexapro or my cymbalta but a lot of times what’s
happening is is they’re trying to come off of them too fast
and they’re triggering withdrawal symptoms that create and mirror anxiety
and depression these other things but if they work with the right physician they
absolutely can wean off those but what we see is they’re longer you’re on
antidepressants the more likely you are to get this thing called down-regulation
which eventually you know if you you know if you go to Walmart here in the
states there’s you know thousands of parking places you know so you know you
can pull in and get a place to park but let’s say every month there’s less and
less parking places but there’s still the need because we still have the same
number of people coming to Walmart every day but eventually you see that 40 and
then 60% of those parking places are taken away now what happens is there’s
nowhere to park your car what do you do so you did that you know what do you do
same thing with the antidepressants is eventually when you don’t have those
receptor sites they just quit working and so at that point whether that’s 12
months 18 months three years at some point patients will complain to their
doctor and he or she then will then probably switch them to another
medication but if you’re not careful you can create such a down-regulation such a
deficiency that you can never get those back and in the process as you said
Jonathan being on these medications can create side effects whether that’s
changing in the gut biome they could affect your thyroid they can affect your
sleep they deplete your natural sleep hormone melatonin that eventually what
you see is you’re getting worse and worse and worse not better and that’s
that’s common unfortunately today I am happy to get up in the morning I look
forward to the future I see God in so many new places and there’s just so much
to experience I just there’s so much life to live I’m just happy about life
I’m happy to meet other people it’s just a whole new outlook just I don’t even

like Christine it’s freedom I praise God it’s just such a rejoicing sense of
happiness and joy and just to be able to talk to others about this experience to
help them in any way to see that there is hope out there there is a solution
that other people don’t have to stay in that pit that pit is not even real it’s
just you know I don’t know it’s just there’s so much hope and life out there

  2. Thanks so much for downloading! I really need to watch this and just couldnt afford the series but need them now more than ever as I suffer so much and have realized the meds are making things worse for me

  3. Thank you VERY MUCH for sharing this. I'm in great need, since I've been diagnosed with both ADD and Asperger, both which is frequently connected with developing depression, anxiety, addiction(s), phobias etc., etc – But I just couldn't/cannot afford to buy this series!
    Believe me – if I could, I would have bought this – since I've been suffering from both depression and anxiety for most of my life, which in my teenage years lead me to addiction, and I became a fullblown heroin- and benzodiasepin-addict in my early 20's.
    And although I've been to a series of therapies which after about 20 years or so made me able to stop my addictions, as well as made my anxiety to become much better, if not almost gone! I've not been able to better my depression, in fact it has become much worse and have now been diagnosed with chronic depression.
