October is mental health awareness month. This is a critical issue nationwide. It impacts the entire society – from families to schools to corporations. The number of adults and children on medications is alarming. While we typically do not repeat newsletter content from the prior month, this issue is so top of mind that if you did not have a chance to review this information, we strongly encourage you to do so.
Much of the information from Dr. Walsh’s book was new to me and these past two months it has been incorporated into the practice. For clients with mental health issues, we are muscle testing the nutrients recommended by Dr. Walsh and finding them beneficial and adding them to protocols.
NUTRIENT POWER: HEAL YOUR BIOCHEMISTRY AND HEAL YOUR BRAIN BY WILLIAM J WALSH, PhD
Dr. Walsh has worked with over 30,000 patients with a variety of mental health issues. The important takeaway is that everyone is different in how their biochemistry and their epigenetics respond to both natural substances and medications. What works for one does not work for everyone and specific protocols can be developed using muscle testing.
Walsh has identified the following biochemical imbalances that he has seen consistently with his patients. Some are more prevalent with certain disorders than others, but the bottom line is that these are what he calls “the repeat offenders.” He has determined that the underlying common factor is each plays a direct role in the synthesis or functioning of an important neurotransmitter.
Here are the factors: copper overload, Vitamin B-6 deficiency, zinc deficiency, methyl/folate imbalances, oxidative stress overload, amino acid imbalances, fatty acid imbalances, glucose dysregulation and toxic overload.

Of course, we all know what follows – the “low” as the sugar runs out and we crave more sugar to feel good again. As you may have guessed, the correct answer is protein and the neurotransmitters which are made from it. Neurotransmitters help you feel good for the long haul.
