Video: Neurodegenerative Disease And Endocrine Balancing, An Integrative Approach

Presented by Labrix Clinical Services, LLC

By the year 2020, over 40% of the US population will be older than 60 years of age. Over the next 40 years we’re facing an epidemic of neurologic /neurodegenerative diseases on a global scale. In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics reported that Alzheimer’s disease surpassed diabetes as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. We all employ strategies to temper memory loss and forgetfulness (list keeping etc.)but we are all living longer, and the impact of brain aging and the inherent read more…

Low-Dose Lithium: A multifaceted tool in integrative psychiatry*

by Kelly Heim, Ph.D.

Since its discovery as a food ingredient and medicinal agent, lithium has intrigued scientists with its profound effects on the human mind. In 1949, its capacity to influence mood was first reported, and in 1970, lithium carbonate became available as a pharmaceutical agent in the U.S. Lithium has since been widely recognized as a powerful substance with potential dose-dependent effects on thoughts, feelings, cognition and behavior.*

Abstract

Although eating fish is associated with intake of methylmercury, researchers in this field have generally thought that the beneficial effects of a diet rich in long-chain, n-3 fatty acids (N3FA) can outweigh the cognitive neurotoxicity of mercury.

Objective: This study intended to clarify the impact of Hg and intake of seafood on cognition.

Design: The study was a retrospective, read more…

by Pure Encapsulations

PureSynapse Overview
A “synapse” is essential to neuronal function. It is the junction at which neurons communicate with each other. This communication is achieved using biochemical messengers known as neurotransmitters to precisely coordinate every mental and emotional process. Therefore, effective synthesis and activity of these critical molecules is essential for mental health.

This slideshow presentation by Pure Encapsulations discusses:

Mental and emotional health depend on the availability of nutrient building blocks and cofactors, such as amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals for the biosynthesis of neurotransmitters. In addition to these essential factors, dietary read more…

Magnesium in integrative psychiatry: Dosage, bioavailability and evidence-based formulations

James Greenblatt, M.D.

Abstract
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. It’s the second most prevalent mineral inside of cells, next to potassium. The body’s highest levels of magnesium are found in the brain and heart. Forty percent of our magnesium is in tissues (inside of cells). Because it is so sequestered, identifying deficiency is challenging.
