8 Inhibitory Neurotransmitters  Serotonin  GABA

9 Excitatory Neurotransmitters  Dopamine  Nor-epinephrine  Epinephrine  Glutamate

10 Adrenal Hormones  DHEA-s – (2-point)  Cortisol – (4-point)

11 Neurotransmitters Anxious? Depressed? Mood swings? Difficulty sleeping? Experiencing pain? Lacking motivation? Low libido?

13 Pharmaceutical Drugs  Mood-altering drugs are considered affective if it reduces depression 50%  SSRI’s help % of the time but have side effects 86% of the time  Turner looked at 74 clinical trials and found the drug worked 51% and the placebo 49% Erick H Turner MD, et al. “Selective Publication of Antidepressant Trials and Its Influence on Apparent Efficacy,” NEJM (January 17, 2008); 358:

14 Evolution of Model Mood Disorders  Middle Ages: Demons within-exorcism is therapy of choice  1917: Freud explains that those demons are really our mothers  1988: Eli Lilly releases our mothers from 80 years of victimization, explaining that depression is really a Prozac deficiency Dr. Hedaya, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Georgetown University.

17 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

18 LIFE

19 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

20 Gluten Sensitivity  Depression in 52%  Injured GI lining decreases the effectiveness of absorbing essential nutrients to keep the brain healthy.  Zinc, tryptophan, and B Vitamins  “second brain” produces percent of serotonin

21 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

22 Vitamin D  Low levels contribute to depression and chronic fatigue  Adequate Vitamin D needed by the adrenal gland for the production of dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine  Several months of supplementation

23 High Blood Sugar “when your blood sugar rises there is an immediate depletion of the neurotransmitters serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, GABA, and dopamine. B-complex, which is needed to make neurotransmitters, gets used up.” David Perlmutter, MD, Grain Brain (New York, Boston, London: Little, Brown and Company, 2013).

25 High Blood Sugar “ The most powerful tool you have to change your body and your health is your fork.” Mark Hyman, MD

26 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

27 Hormone Imbalance: Statins “If you deprive the brain of cholesterol, then you directly affect the machinery that triggers the release of neurotransmitters. Cholesterol changes the shape of the proteins to stimulate thinking and memory.” David Perlmutter, MD, Grain Brain (New York, Boston, London: Little, Brown and Company, 2013).

28 Hormones & Neurotransmitters  Strong interaction E2 and serotonin  Progesterone and GABA  Testosterone and DHEA

29 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

30 Symptoms of Low Thyroid Production  Depression  Anxiety  Decreased memory  Inability to concentrate  Migraine headaches  Muscle and joint pain  Menopausal symptoms and PMS  Insomnia  Fatigue  Low libido

31 Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance  Life  Gluten  Lack of nutrition and blood sugar  Hormone imbalance  Low thyroid  Adrenal fatigue  Toxins  Infections  Lack of sleep

32 Adrenal Hormones  DHEA-s  Cortisol

34 NeuroLab™  Leading specialist in the technology, analysis, and research of the biomarkers relating to HPA-T axis function.  Leaders in the clinical application of urinary HPLC/MS testing.  Certified by CLIA as High Complexity Clinical Laboratory  Participates in College of American Pathology & BIORAD proficiency testing for salivary samples.

35 Amino acids “We have found that if a drug can be found to do the job of medical healing, a nutrient can be found to do the same job. We now know that if we give the amino acids the body will synthesize neurotransmitters, thereby achieving the same effect as drugs. The challenge of the future is to replace drugs with these natural healers.” Dr. Carl Pfeiffer, a pioneer amino-acid researcher.

36 Step 1: Assessment Assess the patients’ neurotransmitter and adrenal hormone biomarkers with a non-invasive laboratory test Establishes a baseline on first test, looking for imbalances affecting HPA-T axis function. Important tool for monitoring and adjusting therapy to meet the patient’s individual biochemical needs

37 Step 2: Correlation Personalized laboratory results to patient specific symptoms and, current treatments, and lifestyle factors Comprehensive review of patient’s neuroendocrine system

38 Step 3: Correction  Sanesco’s exclusive line of TNT products are natural, non-drug formulas balanced with specific low dose amino acid precursors and nutrient cofactors designed to support neurotransmitter and hormone pathways showing imbalances affecting HPA-T axis function.

39 Targeted Nutritional Therapy- safe & clinically effective  Prolent™ (inhibitory support)  Lentra™ (GABA receptor support)  Procite-D™ (dopamine support)  Contegra™ (catecholamine formula)  MethyMax™ (methylation support)  Adaptacin™ (adrenal support)

40 Effective Clinical Tool 1. Symptomatic patient does a test 2. Test reveals a number 3. Intervention is made 4. Test is repeated 5. Number improves
