Getting to the Root of Mental Illness

Using the The Walsh Protocol we can see if your diagnosed mental illness or emotional struggles stem from micronutrient imbalances inside your body. With a blood and urine test, we uncover which nutrients might be out of balance causing extreme fluctuations in your mood, behavior, focus and overall cognition. While your tests are being analyzed you will begin regular psychotherapy sessions to give you coping skills. Once the results are analyzed, the right combinations of vitamins and minerals will be recommended.

“Science has made great advances in the understanding of complex brain processes, and we are approaching an era in which psychiatric medications may no longer be necessary. An under-appreciated fact is that the primary raw materials for the synthesis of many neurotransmitters are nutrients – amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and other natural biochemicals that we obtain from food.”

William J. Walsh, PhD, FACN, president of the non-profit Walsh Research Institute

Frequently Asked Questions

Which tests are involved?

Blood Test – We test zinc, copper, whole blood histamine, ceruloplasmin, and homocysteine all of which play a role in regulating and producing neurotransmitters in the brain.

Urine Test – Measures for kryptopyrroles – which assess the levels of B6 and zinc.

 

How long does it take to get results?

It generally takes about one month, from when the tests are received by the lab, to when our Naturopathic Doctor can review the results.

What is Advanced Nutrient Therapy?

Specific vitamins and minerals will be prescribed to be taken by mouth or IV infusion. It uses natural chemicals, rather than molecules that are foreign to the body to correct imbalances that affecting neurotransmitter activity.

 

What does the treatment look like?

Based on your lab results a specific nutrient protocol will be recommended. Zinc may be used to correct elevated copper levels, antioxidants may be used to help reverse oxidative damage or specialized forms of B6 may be used to correct methylation issues. Proper supplementation can bring relief within 2-3 weeks, however maximum results are seen after 4 months of following the protocol. Nutrient protocols can safely be used with any medications that you are taking.

 

What will happen if you don’t do this testing?

Without this testing you will never truly understand what is happening with your own brain chemistry, and if there is a relative easy solution to help your mental health.
