    Dr. James R. Eells Discusses the Facts About Neurotransmitter Therapy

     
    Dr. James R. Eells, a recognized leader in the field of personalized medicine, discusses the issues surrounding neurotransmitter therapy, when it is appropriate and how it can be used to generate a profound healing effect on the brain and the entire body.

    Dr. James R. Eells has spent many years practicing medicine and is a recognized leader in the field of personalized medical care or "concierge" medicine. As such, Dr. Eells constantly looks for ways to improve the care he gives to his patients and to encourage them to use therapies that will contribute to wellness and overall good health. In this regard, Dr. Eells is a strong advocate for neurotransmitter therapy, a type of therapy that uses supplements to increase the chemical messages between nerve cells in the brain.

    "Many people do not realize how important the complicated chemical reactions that are involved in the brain really are in relationship to overall health and how supplements can significantly assist in those reactions," notes Dr. Eells, on the web at https://www.linkedin.com/in/drjameseells. "Neurotransmitter therapy has been shown to provide all types of increases in the transfer of electrical messages between nerve cells. This translates into better health, period."

    According to Dr. Eells, neurotransmitter therapy can have a profound healing effect on the brain and body. There are 183 separate neurotransmitters at work in the brain at any given time. When the levels of neurotransmitters drop, the deficiency results in decreased electrical function. This, in turn, results in illnesses. Over 100 separate diseases may be linked to neurotransmitter deficiencies, including many diseases classified as "mental" or "hormonal" related. Neurotransmitters play a significant role in mood and perception, so when levels drop, patients often suffer from feelings of depression or pain, even if there is no physical evidence of illness.

    Dr. Eells, on the web at https://www.zocdoc.com/doctor/james-eells-md-97230 and
    https://www.visualcv.com/drjameseells, says that the right nutritional program can result in a significant increase in master neurotransmitter levels. The right diet can increase norepinephrine, epinephrine, serotonin and dopamine, resulting in better control of other neurotransmitters and hormones such as melatonin and cortisol.

    At its most basic level, neurotransmitter therapy re-establishes the flow of electric current between cells. When utilized consistently over a period of time, the brain and body can regain greater function. For many patients, this process can help them control symptoms of many diseases without additional drug therapy.

    "One of the easiest ways to control neurotransmitters is to use balanced nutritional supplements," notes Dr. Eells. "I often recommend supplements to my patients that contain 99 percent pure 5-HTP, a formula that has been shown to be highly effective in the repletion of neurotransmitters. When paired with a personalized nutritional program, this course of treatment can be highly effective in recovering good health and maintaining it."

    However, Dr. Eells also cautions against giving the wrong supplements, as this can actually deplete neurotransmitters. For example, the wrong types or quantities of amino acids in supplements can result in an imbalance. Certain types of medications can also cause neurotransmitter depletion by causing increase enzymatic activity. It is very important that any type of neurotransmitter therapy be given under a doctor's guidance.

    Neurotransmitter therapy has proven effective in treating anxiety, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, insomnia, migraines, tension headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, ADD and ADHD, hyperactivity, cognitive issues associated with aging, dementia, Parkinson's, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, bulimia, obesity, anorexia, pre-menstrual syndrome, symptoms of menopause, hormonal imbalances, cortisol dysfunction, adrenal fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, restless leg syndrome and symptoms caused by traumatic brain injury.

    Dr. James R. Eells is dedicated to helping patients find the right therapies for their particular symptoms in order to help them live a healthy and pain-free life. "Sometimes the answer is not medication, surgery or other invasive procedures. Sometimes simply adding a supplement, changing diet and exercise routines or making other small changes can have a profound impact on how you feel. Whenever possible, I like to help patients find the least invasive methods of solving their health issues. In some cases, supplements can do this. I have had patients who have had great success with neurotransmitter supplement therapy. However, no one therapy is appropriate for all conditions. No one should ever try to self-diagnose or treat themselves without the advice and help of a qualified medical practitioner."
