Spirit Disconnect/Neurotransmitters

Spirit Disconnect/Neurotransmitters

Mental illness is epidemic in today’s society.  There are numerous forms/formats of mental illness and they can manifest in many ways. We suffer from Bi-Polar Disease (formerly Schizophrenia), Depression, Dis illusion, Nervousness, Anxiety, ADD, ADHD, Hyperactivity, Anger etc. Many of us show signs of any of the above without necessarily having a full fledged diagnosable case of it.  Half of our society has lost the ability to sleep well and as such are not rejuvenating their circuitry which is done during the sleep cycle.

Many of these issues are genetic; some may be caused by childhood vaccinations; others may be caused by factors occurring while in the womb.

Alcohol, Marijuana, Psychotropic Drugs (Prozac, Paxil, Cymbalta, Zoloft etc.), Oxycotin/Vicodin dependency etc.  are literally taking our spirit away creating a new phenomena called “Spirit Disconnect”. In certain metaphysical circles, Alzheimer Disease is felt to be caused by a disconnection between the spiritual and mental bodies.

I use a supplement line created specifically to address mental issues.  The company is called NeuroGenesis and the scholarship behind their philosophy and product is nothing short of impeccable.  The NeuroGenesis neurotransmitter  programs requires a health care provider who knows how to use the products and more importantly understands that each of us carries a unique biological signature and as such the products and protocol must be customized to that persons’ history, background and biology.

Below is a brief explanation of Neurotransmitters and how they alone are responsible for a host of mental problems.

What Are Neurotransmitters and How They Affect Your Life?

Just like hormones govern many chemical functions in the body, the brain’s chemical functions are governed by “neurotransmitters.”

A neurotransmitter is a chemical messenger used by neurons (nerve cells) to communicate in one direction with other neurons. Communication between neurons is accomplished by the recognition of a receptor for a specific chemical messenger; picture a ball (neurotransmitter) in a cup (receptor).

The human brain is very capable of automatically manufacturing the quantity of chemicals it needs IF it is given the raw materials (nutrients from foods) to do so.

However, normal diet does not supply enough of the raw materials the brain needs to manufacture enough neurotransmitters. Additionally, stress, worry, depression, emotional ups and downs, drugs, alcohol, poor nutrition, pollution and other factors of modern life are known to deplete neurotransmitter levels.

Neurotransmitter deficiency and/or imbalance can affect your stress condition, energy, appetite, cravings, sleep, mood, learning ability, focus, memory, sex drive, anger, irritability, temper, addictions and many other functions of daily life

With the amount of stress and diet inadequacy in our modern life we would have to consume approximately:

Several pounds of fish, multiple servings of whole milk, many platters of cheese and turkey every day just to keep our neurotransmitter levels normal.

An excellent chart describing the neurotransmitters and their effect on the brain appears below.
