Peripheral Neuropathy (tingling, numbness)
PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder)
Epilepsy / Seizures
NUTRIENTS & THE BRAIN
The brain and nervous system are made of nutrients, not magic substances or drugs. Many
of these disorders are caused by nutrient deficiencies, neurotransmitter imbalances, and genetic
mutations. For example:
Neurotransmitters: made of amino acids, B vitamins, trace minerals.
Myelin sheath surrounding the nerves: cholesterol, fatty acids, vitamins B12 and folate.
Nerve cell membranes: Nervonic acid (elongated fatty acids from olive oil).
Nerve cell signaling: sphingolipids (fatty acids with phosphorus or choline).
Genetic mutations can affect fatty acids or enzymes, blocking any of the above.
Some good bacterial flora have receptors for human hormones and neurotransmitters.
Hence quality supplements, better diet, and good flora can improve nerve regeneration,
neurotransmitter balance, and brain function. Disorders include:
NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS (Physical):
Alcoholism, epilepsy / seizures, migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease,
peripheral neuropathy (tingling, numbness), shingles, and tremors. Shingles is caused by a
virus, but is aggravated by vitamin deficiencies.
Anger issues, anxiety, bipolar, depression, irritability, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
Research shows 2-3 biotypes (biological types) of depression.
Alzheimer's Disease, confusion, poor focus, poor memory, schizophrenia, senile dementia.
Research shows 2-3 biotypes (biological types) of schizophrenia.
