SNS Dominants, AKA “Type A” – Otherwise known as “Carbo types”, “Slow oxidizers” & “Sympathetic dominant”. This simply means that they slowly break down meals (whole grains, fruits, veggies & lean proteins) in order to obtain the necessary energy required for their more active lifestyles. Food may sit “like a rock” in their guts so that they remain full much longer than they should. They generally have weak appetites (forgetting to eat at times) and a high tolerance for sweets. They are often "type A" personalities who may be dependent on caffeine. When not functioning optimally, they may feel agitated, "wired" or "on ... ..more
Acetylcholine is known as the inhibitory #Neurotransmitter System
The first #neurotransmitter to be discovered in 1921. Its’ importance lies in the fact that it stimulates muscles to contract. This NT alters heart muscle contractions and impacts muscle function throughout the body. It’s also strategic in vocalizations/ #speech and #swallowing . Acetylcholine is critical for #attention , #alertness , and #memory . People with #Alzheimer’s , #Parkinson’s , #ALS , and #Myasthenia Gravis have substantial #dysfunction within acetylcholine activity or breakdown.
Low levels are associated with #depression , and a lack of #concentration & #emotion as well as poor #muscle tone, #forgetfulness , and poor #sleep “light sleepers ... ..more
Think “nervous, nimble and nightmares” with Nor-epi. This is due to nor-epinephrine’s #adrenalin effects on the body as the main “fight or flight” #neurotransmitter . It’s essential for action in order to ward off attackers and initiate battle or escape. When we encounter something frightening, such as the sound of someone in your house at 3am, your nervous system releases nor-epinephrine. Once tired, you’ll suddenly feel the need to spring into action! Your heart starts to pound and hearing and vision become extremely acute while muscles tighten for attack. Unless you panic, you’ll also have clearer ... ..more
#Histamine is most commonly known for it's role in #allergic reactions but it is also involved in other neurological functions and can affect your #emotions as well as behavior. Histamine helps control the #sleep -wake cycle and promotes the release of epinephrine and #norepinephrine . This may be the explanation for red ears and #flushed cheeks in susceptible children and adults with high histamine levels.
High levels have been linked to obsessive-compulsive ( #OCD ) tendencies, #depression , and #headaches . Low levels can contribute to #paranoia , low #libido , #fatigue , and multiple medication sensitivities.
it is important to consider that those with the #CBS ... ..more
Glutamate is the major excitatory #neurotransmitter and the most commonly found NT in the brain. It is required for #learning and #memory , however, an excess of #glutamate is actually toxic to brain cells and nerves. #LouGehrig’s is the most well known disease of glutamate excess but newer evidence reveals many other disorders may be related such as #Autism , #CFS, many #seizure disorders, #Migraines , #MS , and many more. Glutamate balances #GABA ’s calming effect.
High levels can cause nerve and brain cell death and injury through inflammation. High or imbalanced glutamate levels are clearly involved in many neurological diseases such ... ..more
#Epinephrine is one of the “Fight or Flight” #Hormones This NT is derived from #norepinephrine & released by the #adrenals. Hence, it is also known as #adrenaline . Epinephrine is also essential in #metabolism and regulates attention and mental focus & clarity as well as arousal (alertness & waking up), and thinking. It also inhibits #insulin release and raises the amount of fatty acids in the blood; both of which you’ll require for fuel. This very neurotransmitter induced anxiety and heart racing the moment you heard the word “ #Methyltetrahydrofolate ” or “ #methylation .” Epinephrine also raises your #bloodpressure and speeds up your heart rate.
High levels have been linked to sleep problems, #anxiety and #ADD or #ADHD. Low levels can result in #fatigue , lack of focus, and difficulty losing weight. ..more
Think “delightful dialogue” with #dopamine since this #neurotransmitter is crucial for happiness, a sense of wellbeing, and language. It’s also involved in #muscle control and function. Dopamine is responsible for #motivation , interest, #mood , #speech , and contentment. It is also associated with positive #stress states such as being in love, exercising, listening to music, and of course, #sex . When you don't have enough dopamine, you may have difficulty initiating or completing tasks. Deficiencies also lead to poor #concentration , little or no energy, and lack of motivation. This could be the culprit if you lack the initiative to study the ... ..more
Perhaps the best way to think of neurotransmitters is with an automobile example. Most automobiles in the United States are made to cruise at 60-70 miles per hour, perfect for interstate highways and that summer vacation. If we place that same automobile on a racetrack and drive day-after-day at 130 mph, two things would happen:
1). Parts would fail and
2). We would run the engine so hot that we’d likely evaporate or burnout the oil.
In fact, neurotransmitters such as serotonin act as the brain’s “oil”.
Comparable to a normal automobile on a race track, when we ... ..more
