Problems in your nervous system can dramatically alter your quality of life. The causes are wide and varied. Nutritional imbalances can have a major impact to the way that nerves function as can drivers of inflammation.
Nerve cells communicate using neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, histamine, GABA, opioids, acetylcholine and melatonin. These require the right amount of nutrients in the right place at the right time.
Melatonin is a good example of the power of neurotransmitters. The nucleus of every cell in the body has receptors for melatonin. Its role at night while you sleep is to repair cells, prevent free radical damage, stabilise DNA and improve mitochondrial integrity. Taking melatonin as a drug stops your body from making it. So improving natural sleep and taking nutrients to improve melatonin production reduces your risk of cancer and chronic disease.
I use programs to treat and support the following:
- Anxiety, Panic attacks and Hyperventilation.
- Alzheimer’s and dementia.
- Headaches and migraine.
- Insomnia and sleep problems.
- Learning and memory problems.
- Parkinson’s disease.
- Multiple sclerosis.
- Peripheral neuropathy.
- Hearing loss.
- Dry eye syndrome.
- Age-related macular degeneration.
Problems with sight (floaters, dark spots in the field of vision, problems focusing) should always be investigated by an eye specialist particularly if vision has deteriorated. Nutritional programs offer good support to structures and nerve function.
