Mind effects body, and body effects mind. There is no dividing the two. Mental and behavioral disturbances can arise from unknown health problems. If your brain is being driven by problems with metabolic, hormonal, cardiac, or infectious abnormalities, then all the psychotherapies you try will have limited or no success. Even a chronic inner ear infection, or gut problems, can cause emotional problems.
There is ample scientific proof of the connection between health problems and disturbances of well-being. Wouldn't you be upset to do rounds of neurofeedback only to discover that there was a hormone or nutrition imbalance at the root of your problem?
When beginning neurofeedback or any mental health care, a responsible professional will recommend evaluation for the following (at a minimum):
1. Have your physician check thyroid levels, vitamin D levels, mineral levels, hematocrit, and hormone levels (adults).
NOTE: If you test low on vitamin D and are supplemented by a physician, please listen to the video by a neurologist (below) on taking vitamin K2 with the D to prevent toxicity or listen to the following video. Your physician probably will not know this. Life Extension offers a D3 with K2 supplement.
Here a neurologist speaks clearly about supplementing vitamin D and it's possible contribution to poor sleep, high pain, low testosterone, bleak mood, high cholesterol, belly fat, and a host of other problems.
3. Consider an easy saliva test for gene mutations that can have an effect on your well-being. The saliva test is at 23andMe.com. That site will only talk about familial connections. After you receive your DNA results on 23&Me, you can upload them to Promeathease.com for a relevant genetic analysis for $10 (maybe $20 now).
The MTHFR gene makes an enzyme called methyltetrahydrofolate reductase. MTHFR is connected to methylation and folate metabolism which is necessary for healthy:
4. Ask your doctor to check your Magnesium levels. 80% of Americans have a clinical or subclinical magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is a cofactor in many metabolic processes. Muscle cramps, constipation, or restlessness can indicate this type of deficiency.
5. There is another mystery disease that mimics everything from anxiety to schizophrenia. It's called Pyroluria. It's thought to be present in 10% of people.
Ask your doctor to do a Kryptopyrrole Urinalysis.
6. If you eat much sushi or travel out of this country, you may have intestinal parasites. They are hard to find and often go untreated. But if nothing mentioned above shows up, and you have gut problems, please ask your doctor to check for parasites.
