Ease Anxiety & Depression Naturally

Depression and anxiety can be crippling mental illnesses. These conditions can indicate underlying health issues, which can be discovered through lab testing. A positive test for pyroluria, histadelia, and/or histapenia means that nutritional treatment for anxiety and depression is available. Additionally, we will test for any allergies, toxins, or nutritional deficiencies that may be exacerbating your symptoms. If you have struggled with anxiety or depression, a drug-free solution may be a simple set of lab tests away!

 

WHAT IS PYROLURIA?

Pyroluria anxiety and depression comes from a genetic abnormality with hemoglobin metabolism. There are many symptoms of pyroluria, which is why this condition is often misdiagnosed. However, the pyroluria test is a simple, inexpensive urine test which measures levels of kryptopyrrole. This urinalysis is available from our office.

Once pyroluria is determined, treatment involves supplementing vitamin B6 and zinc at high enough levels to correct the imbalance. Additionally, patients who test positive for pyroluria must avoid fish oil, copper, and red & yellow food dyes.

This simple treatment should provide results anywhere within two days to two weeks – depending on the severity of pyroluria. Because pyroluria can be a genetic condition, supplementation must continue to avoid the return of symptoms.

PYROLURIA SYMPTOMS

Depression Anxiety
Bipolar disorder Schizophrenia
Mood swings Poor reaction to stress
Unexplained nausea Weak appetite in the morning
Hypoglycemia Panic attacks
Fatigue Tendency for addictive behavior
Poor dream recall Allergies
Joint pain Antisocial tendencies that worsen with age
Motion sickness Frequent infections

WHAT IS HISTADELIA?

Histadelia or “undermethylation” indicates high levels of histamine in the bloodstream and can be discovered through testing of the whole blood histamine level, folic acid, and basophil levels. There are histamine receptors all through the body, in the skin, lungs, blood vessels, and mucous membranes, so undermethylation treatment can benefit both emotional and physical symptoms.

High histamine can be caused by metabolic imbalances that result from many factors such as low vitamin B6 that acts as a cofactor to convert histidine to histamine, gut bacteria that cause elevated histamine, histamine from foods that you eat, estrogen levels (high estrogen will elevate histamine levels and high histamine can elevate estrogen levels) etc. It seems there is a lot more to histamine levels than just proper methylation.

Treatment for undermethylation revolves around utilizing natural methods to help histamine leave the body and support metabolism. This includes supplements such as methionine, calcium, and other supportive nutrients. It often takes three to six months to resolve this chemical imbalance. If treatment is discontinued, symptoms will return.

WHAT IS HISTAPENIA?

Histapenia or “overmethylation” indicates low blood histamine levels. This condition can cause an increase in the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine, contributing to anxiety disorders. Histapenia can be diagnosed with a blood test, which we can administer here at the clinic.

Overmethylation can be treated naturally with nutritional supplementation. Treatment revolves around folic acid, niacin, B12, and a high protein diet. Once the patient has begun treatment, they should see a gradual improvement within two to four weeks, with full correction occurring over a period of several months. This condition is associated with a biological dependence on these nutrients, so if treatment is discontinued, symptoms will return.

HISTAPENIA SYMPTOMS

Anxiety Nervousness
Social isolation Depression
Food & chemical sensitivities Panic attacks
Paranoia Learning disabilities
Academic underachievement Restless legs
Dry eyes Heavy body hair
