The Urge (and Durge*) of Dopamine
I got a giggle tonight when on the evening news I watched a segment on the “latest scientific” research suggesting a connection between Depression and Parkinson’s Disease.
Why I laughed is because to any holistic doctor it’s common knowlege the connection between Depression, Addictions, and Parkinson’s.
The connection is in the depletion of the neurotransmitter Dopamine. Dopamine is the neurotransmitter that in normal amounts keeps us happy, motivated, in love, and our brain working correctly.
Depletion of dopamine will also be linked with restless leg syndrome, ADD and ADHD, tremors, lack of motivation, and fuzzy thinking.
Enough Dopamine is linked to exercise, success in life, being in love, and a fulfilling sexual experience.
The great news is that there is actually a simple saliva test to check your Dopamine levels, and if confirmed low, there is a simple and safe supplement you can take to raise it to normal levels.
If you know someone of any age suffering with Depression, any type of Addiction, Parkinson’s, ADD, ADHD, or who has trouble concentrating, send them over to me. We’ll run the test and get them set up on the right program to make them into a “happy camper.” ………And all natually, without the toxic side-effects of drugs!
*Durge: slang for a jerk, or “what were you thinking?” In other words, the behavior
of someone who doesn’t have enough Dopamine.
