Vanita Dahia shares with us how integrative, personalised medicine is in a unique position to help patients bring stability to the neurological and endocrine functions that govern the chemical signals that facilitate sexual arousal.
Trudy takes us through the core neurotransmitters that influence our mood and behaviour and how to recognise the patient presentation when they're out of balance.
S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) is integral to cellular metabolism and as the major methyl donor in the body. SAMe is involved in the methylation of a diverse range of compounds including phospholipids, DNA, RNA, proteins and neurotransmitters. It is also involved in two other important pathways – transsulfuration which produces glutathione, and aminopropylation which synthesises polyamines.
Taking an in-depth look at the background, key benefits, clinical applications and mechanisms of action of the various forms of folate available in therapeutics and food.
Functional pathology testing for neurotransmitters may offer some insights for practitioners who are treating depression, anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain. Beth Bundy talks testing benefits and pitfalls.
With the growing focus on the human microbiome there has been a profound shift in our understanding of the role of the gut in health and disease.
N-acetyl-cysteine, commonly abbreviated to NAC, is a precursor of the amino acid L-cysteine and the antioxidant glutathione (GSH).
What role does the microbiome, toxicity and inflammation have in the interplay between gut and mind? The body of evidence is growing that a healthy gastrointestinal system is a core clinical consideration in the treatment of mood disorders.
