Adrenaline-Deficient Anxiety

From a neurotransmitter standpoint, there are several different types of anxiety. I wrote here about the high dopamine/low serotonin variety, largely characterized by obsession and overthinking. High levels of adrenaline (norepinephrine and epinephrine) fit here too, since too much dopamine will spill over into high levels of norepinephrine and epinephrine [...]

Toxic Exposure Can Disrupt Neurochemistry

I wrote here on neurotransmitter imbalance and the (mostly urinary) evidence that these imbalances are, in fact, linked to various kinds of mental/emotional disorders. That still leaves some unanswered questions, though—specifically, what is the mechanism by which the neurotransmitters get disrupted in the first place? Here’s one surprising answer.

Neurotransmitter Imbalance and Depression: Chicken or the Egg?

The bulk of the evidence is against the use of psychotropic medications for anxiety and depression.
