There is a large and growing body of research, published articles and, scientific writings on the effects of neurotoxins on the mental and physical health and the role of neurotransmitters (amino acids), botanicals and whole food nutrition play in restoring health and well-being.  These articles are perfect  to give to your doctor if you desire 3rd party verification of the science behind Brain and Body Wellness programs and procedures.

Perhaps the best place to start is the interview with Mary Beth Ackerley, a Harvard-trained MD, who talks about the importance of amino acid therapy. The next paper, about the effects of amino acids on serotonin and dopamine, is the first of it’s kind anywhere in the world. It’s extremely technical and requires an advanced degree in biochemistry to understand it. The chapter on depression and amino acids, published by Johns Hopkins MD, Ingrid Kohlstadt, is equally technical and presents for the first time the “Neural Bundle Damage Theory” of neurotransmitter depletion. Last, we have the first research ever completed on the effectiveness of whole food supplements on health and wellness. It is a large and growing field of science, that is vital for our physical and mental health.
