Following an initial Comprehensive Biotype Lab Panel and Assessment, individuals and practitioners may like to monitor the status of key elements to determine progress of supplementation or lifestyle changes. When these metals are in balance there is a better likelihood that serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine levels have improved.
- Copper, Serum – Elevated copper indicates there is an oxidative burden on the body
- Ceruloplasmin – When drawn simultaneously with copper, it is useful in determining one’s level of ‘free copper’.
- Zinc, Plasma – Zinc is involved in over 300 metabolic functions of the body. Not least of which is the production of serotonin and dopamine, the removal of copper and the production of ceruloplasmin.
who are trained in the Walsh Protocol, in conjunction with a health history and medications review are able better address mood and behavior by correcting particular imbalances. These imbalances influence the activity and performance of neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine by causing either an up-regulation or down-regulation of these nerve transmitters. They also reflect whether or not someone is likely experiencing oxidative stress, or epigenetic influence on the DNA’s production of protein. Depression, schizophrenia, autism, biopolar disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, anxiety and other psychiatric conditions are frequently associated with and imbalance in nutrients that may have an imbalance in one or more of these nutrients or biochemical conditions.
