Histamine, Methylation and Serotonin. A natural approach to treat depression

Why do we use histamine to determine serotonin and dopamine levels for treating depression naturally? While genetics is the inherited characteristics of an organism’s genes, epigenetics is a term that describes the factors of influence on the genes, to cause the cells to increase or decrease their function. That function is the transcription and manufacture […]

Toxic Elements Biotype

This is an excellent summary of toxic elements and oxidative stressors due to heavy metals. Individuals who suffer depression, anxiety or schizophrenia and other mental disorders, typically do not respond to SSRI medicines and or supplements that affect levels of serotonin and dopamine or norepinephrine. These folks may be experiencing symptoms from toxic elements, such […]

Walsh Discusses Overmethylation Biotype

  Serious conditions such as panic disorders, Biopolar disorder and schizophrenia are often suffering from overmethylation. Serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine are elevated in these persons. It is possible to diagnose this condition through a whole blood histamine test or else through a SAM/SAH methylation ratio test. Higher levels of these neurotransmitters can cause anxieties, disorders […]

Dr Mercola interviews Dr Walsh; Role of nutrients for treating autism, anxiety, depression and dementia.

  It only a matter of time before Dr Walsh and his nutritional protocol for treating mental disorders becomes mainstream. Thanks to popular health advocates such as Dr Mercola, Dr Walsh will get the exposure that is needed to wake up the medical community. With the ever increasing ill effects on our epigenetics from the […]

Dr Mercola interviews Dr Walsh on role of epigenetics, methylation and folates in mental health.

Mercola Interviews Walsh

The Importance of Methylation and Folates in Mental Health In his interview with Dr Mercola, Dr Walsh, who pioneered the role of methylation in mental health and autism.  discusses methylation. According to Walsh, the No. 1 causes of undermethylation are single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) or mutations in the enzymes for the one-carbon cycle (the methylation cycle). “The […]

Copper Overload Linked to Autism, Schizophrenia and Postpartum Depression

Autism is particularly susceptible to copper overload and the effect on dopamine and norepinephrine  levels. In his recent interview with Dr Mercola, Dr Walsh discusses copper, an important trace metal, that plays a distinct role in the synthesis of norepinephrine, a major neurotransmitter. Free copper impacts the levels of dopamine by causing this Dopamine neurotransmitter […]

How apple cider vinegar may assist overmethylators

This publication suggests that acetate, derived from acetic acid, may assist the brain and other organs in reducing inflammation. That it does so specifically by acetylating DNA histones, explains the effectiveness of products such as organic apple cider vinegar in managing overmethylators. Overmethylators, who may be identified by a histamine blood test, would benefit because acetyl-CoA […]

Alzheimer’s and MT Promoter Therapy

Metallothionein MT Promoter Therapy

Alzheimer’s and MT Promoter developed by Dr William Walsh Phd. NOTES FROM 10/18/16 Notes from Dr Walsh’s presentation at the October 2016 Physician Workshop and Training Conference. Alzheimers was named after the Doctor bearing his name. Hallmarks of this condition include Apoptosis – spontaneous death of cells at rate of 5000 times normal. Severe oxidative […]

Methylation and Epigenetics – William Walsh PhD Podcast

william.walsh.podcast

Methylation Overview: New discoveries in the field of epigenetics have led to effective advanced nutrient therapies for children and adults challenged by brain disorders, such as autism, Alzheimer’s, depression, bipolar, schizoaffective disorders, and ADHD/ADD. A Walsh panel can determine a clients’ methylation status, and thus a treatment based on their biochemical individuality. Dr. David Epstein, […]
