Supplements to Assist with Sauna Detoxification

I wrote here on the health benefits of sauna in general, and here on infrared vs dry heat saunas. Quick recap on at least the detoxification portion, though: toxins, especially solvents, tend to persist in fat cells for years unless eliminated—and elimination occurs via sweating and weight loss. Sauna, therefore, is helpful for [...]

PQQ and the Mitochondria

I wrote here on mitochondrial dysfunction in depth. But as a quick recap: mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cells, generating the body’s energy currency called ATP. They’re the last step in the process of converting glucose into energy. Therefore, under-functioning mitochondria will have broad-reaching consequences, affecting potentially every body system.

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.

Neurotransmitter Imbalance and Depression: Chicken or the Egg?

The bulk of the evidence is against the use of psychotropic medications for anxiety and depression. Studies show that in many cases, effects of SSRIs and benzodiazepines are no better than placebo for mild to moderate depression–indeed, some studies showed that SSRIs were less than half as effective as placebo! It also [...]
