Neurotransmitters March 27 2015
"The Edge Effect" by Eric Braverman, MD is a highly beneficial book that I didn't mention in "How I Recovered From Chronic Fatigue Syndrome". That's because I didn't read it until I had already recovered.
Apparently, when we reach 40 years of age our brains have trouble creating the neurotransmitters needed - serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, and Gaba. Deficiencies can lead to problems such as dementia, ADHD, depression, anxiety, fatigue, obesity and a host of other issues.
I took the tests in the book and discovered that I was deficient in two neurotransmitters. Dietary and supplement changes are recommended according to the needs of the reader. A lot of the symptoms I was blaming menopause for were alleviated when I added some supplements to my regime.
My brain is definitely working better but am I any smarter????? Probably not!
