Markers For Advanced Navigation

Mad In America recent posting reports on a recent World Psychiatry Journalarticle titled:

Emphasis on Nutrition [Is] Needed to Reform Mental Health Treatments

—————-

My comments at Mad In America:

Issues with the purported inadequacy of nutritional supplements do parallel the overwhelming public angst over the limitations of psychiatric medications themselves. The extant label system, and the homogenization of human suffering encouraged as a cost saver by managed care, create inadequacies on both the Functional and Traditional sides of attempts at psychiatric care. Labels leave even well informed professionals with few options but to take treatment sides with one camp or the other, and to almost completely ignore managed care who uses those same labels to repeatedly deny reasonable treatments.

Nutrition: An Example of What’s Missing

Overlooked: the interests of the patient. What each group provides is excellent care, but insufficient awareness of the multiple biomedical variables.

Each polarized group markets their own limited perspective as the only essential. However, in my own opinion, having lived in both camps for more than a decade, the fault is not with either philosophy but the system that insists on outdated labels rather than effective biomedical measurements as determinants for treatment objectives. Both perspectives are essential.

Mind complexity requires more than casual navigation beyond the superficial readings of visual sightings. In sailing Dead Reckoning navigation is, without the use of multiple inputs from modern technology, “considered obsolete.” Radar, depth finders, maps that show sandbars all prove useful in mind navigation. Without knowing precise targets the entire process oftentimes devolves to the unacceptable process of shooting geese at night. Honk, bang.

Guesswork

Guesswork is out, data is in. Measurement for specific details of nutritional imbalance matter everyday – especially for treatment failure.

Candida Testing Video Playlist http://www.corepsych.com/2015/04/candida-testing-video-playlist/ http://www.corepsych.com/2015/04/candida-testing-video-playlist/#comments Sun, 19 Apr 2015 15:20:23 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=15279 Candida Testing Makes Sense With IgG Challenges

Candida testing, candida bowel, candida mattersIf you don’t measure you simply won’t know what is going on. Candida testing is remarkably available, quite predictable, and once identified can significantly improve treatment outcomes in psychiatric conditions. Oftentimes candida grows more easily downstream from other IgG immunity issues such as food sensitivities to milk, wheat and eggs.

Treatment Failure | Mind And Body

Far too often physical medical folk overlook the connection – that real, measurable medical connection – the pathological connection between chronic body challenges and specific brain, psychiatric imbalances. Allergists focus, as they should, on the serious medical issues that arise with IgE issues. Those interested in treatment for mental health issues, brain imbalances, identify and treat different targets. Body targets frequently present as more obvious – brain targets present as more obscure, more difficult to identify, and more challenging to assess treatment progress. Understandably, the subtlety of brain function simply isn’t on their radar. Not a problem, it’s still clinically measurable, and connected to laboratory test findings.

Clinical: To Download Candida Testing Questionnaires

http://corepsych.com/candida

See this CorePsych posting on questionnaires for Candida Testing from a year ago – with specific videos on Candida challenges that arise from hidden, not easily recognizable clinical presentations. More often than not Candida resides in secret, in chronic, refractory body closets, not available to superficial review. Candida creates problems from ADHD to, more recently discovered, specific encouragement for Alzheimer’s. Informed brain care requires careful candida review. Candida markers matter.

—————-

Laboratory: Candida Testing Overview

It’s time to review this easy Video Playlist on why-and-how for Candida Testing. These videos show the value of how more than one test – both IgG and OATS – can prove useful in revealing underlying pathology. IgG tests for antibodies, markers that show your body is on Candida Immunity Alert, and OATS with markers that show current Candida Activity.

Transitions: Thinking And Doing http://www.corepsych.com/2014/12/transitions-thinking/ http://www.corepsych.com/2014/12/transitions-thinking/#comments Mon, 29 Dec 2014 09:28:01 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=14682 Transitions: Spring Planting Action1
Thinking, doing, action, brain, changes, transtitions

Start Early: Parker Planting In Dexter, 1953, age 11

Principles are good and worth the effort only when they develop into deeds… The great doesn’t happen through impulse alone, and is a succession of little things that are brought together.
Vincent van Gogh

Your mission for this next year, if you decide to accept it… grow. Essential for all of us: fresh, more informed action – driven by natural change. Review these several brief remarks here from Brain Pickings [strongly recommended] on improved actions for your personal transition to the realities of 2015.

Consider: transitions, changes in perspective, drive the evolution of your self management, of your personal reality. Transitions result in either transformation or denial. Reality does change, and we either grow in that new reality or wither in concrete preconceptions.

van Gogh On Principles – by Maria Popova

My view on this is as follows: the result must be an action, not an abstract idea. I think principles are good and worth the effort only when they develop into deeds, and I think it’s good to reflect and to try to be conscientious, because that makes a person’s will to work more resolute and turns the various actions into a whole.

van Gogh On Relationships – by Maria Popova

Does what goes on inside show on the outside? Someone has a great fire in his soul and nobody ever comes to warm themselves at it, and passers-by see nothing but a little smoke at the top of the chimney.

It’s better that we feel something for each other rather than behave like corpses toward one another, the more so because as long as one has no real right to be called a corpse by being legally dead, it smacks of hypocrisy or at least childishness to pose as such… The hours we spent together in this way have at least assured us that we’re both still in the land of the living. When I saw you again and took a walk with you, I had the same feeling I used to have more than I do now, as though life were something good and precious that one should cherish, and I felt more cheerful and alive than I had been for a long time, cause in spite of myself life has gradually become or has seemed much less precious to me, much more unimportant and indifferent. When one lives with others and is bound by a feeling of affection one is aware that one has a reason for being, that one might not be entirely worthless and superfluous but perhaps good for one thing or another, considering that we need one another and are making the same journey as traveling companions. Proper self-respect, however, is also very dependent on relations with others.

Find Your Purpose – Do What You Love – by Maria Popova

In this excellent article Popova condenses seven thoughtful perspectives that will help you with your choices and transitions for this next year. In a word she addresses the essential life element of intentionality.

Improve your perspective of your life’s mission, transcend the considerations of others, and drive forward with your best contribution. You only get these next moments to learn, grow and contribute. Transitions teach, if we let them.

What you should not do, I think, is worry about the opinion of anyone beyond your friends. You shouldn’t worry about prestige. Prestige is the opinion of the rest of the world.

Brain Measures – The New Psychiatric Standard http://www.corepsych.com/2014/11/brain-measures-new-psychiatric-standard/ http://www.corepsych.com/2014/11/brain-measures-new-psychiatric-standard/#comments Sun, 30 Nov 2014 16:25:40 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=14587 New Brain Measures: Technology Improves Mind Targets

… come to think of it, you can’t get there from here.
Burt and I: Which way to Millinocket?

But This Old Brain Bus Won’t Take You There

A Pervasive Mind Problem: Ask yourself this important question: “Why do so many fear/disdain psychiatric treatment and psychiatric medications?”

ADHD, Brain Reality, Brain Measures

This Bus Won’t Take You There

In A Word – Unpredictability: The standards for the use of psychiatric medications are based upon appearances, descriptions, and speculation encouraged by the recently “updated” DSM-5 Diagnostic Manual. Brain measures, neuroscience, hard biomedical data, real brain evidence, grows daily, but remains outside of the medical standard of care. However, real mind challenges do exist in measurable realities, beyond the current DSM-5 Diagnostic Manual, beyond current outdated diagnostic frameworks based upon impressions instead of data.

But those contemporary mind realities aren’t found in the extant diagnostic bible. Beliefs and dogma now outweigh fresh perceptions.

Overlooked: The complexity of functional biologically-based brain and body measurements. Our collective humanity lives in a complexity of coping with real life beyond standardized label-beliefs and orthodox dogma. That new, measurable cellular and subcellular set of variables includes Brain Function, Metabolic Challenges, Change, Cognition, Context and Working Memory.

———————–

Galileo Would Understand

Remember Galileo: Even today many hesitate to trust new discoveries. Today it’s not about revising the Geocentric Universe, the Sun rotating around Rome, it’s about the Diagnostic Manual and fresh metaphoric telescopes that provide real laboratory data for more street smart, more universal, more interesting, more precise applications. Our current system of mind care is, as Dr Edward de Bono notes, “Excellent, but not enough.”

Enter Critical Thinking

Too often those accepted appearance criteria contradict the complexity of contemporary mind-science. Missing today: Critical Thinking – see this list of those actively considering the evolution of scientific thought, especially as related to new mind evidence. From Galileo to Walsh, critical thinking remains involved with new perceptions, new discoveries, from neuroscience. Our current understandings of biologic mind complexity today stretch far beyond those early days of dreams and fantasies in the mid 20th century. Yes, we’re still using those outdated criteria, while coincidentally ignoring hard laboratory data – from functional brain imaging to epigenetics and the subcellular activities of transporter proteins on presynaptic neurons.

Clarifying diagnostic mind targets simultaneously improves treatment protocols. If the sun isn’t rotating around the earth, then let’s use measurement technology to understand exactly what is happening in that outdated universe of mind speculation.

———————-

Science, Reality and Cognition

Old beliefs about causality, diagnosis, and how to correct mind imbalances now need serious revision. An additional exemplary, glaring psychiatric oversight: two remarkably significant mind challenges, Reality and Cognition, appear to have almost completely escaped the attempted recent corrections in the “revised” DSM-5 psychiatric diagnostic manual.

It’s important to note that the way humans cognitively deal with changing reality does improve our circumstances for safety and endurance among other species. Each individual’s relationship with change, from thinking about change to reacting to change, is what sets us apart both as individuals and as a species – but remains almost completely overlooked in 2014.

Cows, Brain Measures And Executive Function

When you read “Executive Function” think: Self Management. Self management is a process over time, not a static label with rampant categorical implications.

Humans are different from cows. Cows live with nearly non-existent executive function. When it rains they simply continue to stand in the field and munch grass. You and I would go inside. Reality, context, does change in the lives of cows, but they don’t adjust to that change. Our brain, our executive function tool, lodged mostly in the prefrontal cortex, regularly cognitively identifies then adjusts to each changing reality, and makes helpful adjustments to our ever-changing circumstances in life.

Consider: If we humans need executive function tools for everything from corporate leadership to marital bliss why is executive function so dramatically neglected in contemporary psychiatry?

New mind science, neuroscience evidence, changes thinking.

Increasingly both professionals and the public can easily see the limitations of using only psychopharmacology and outdated appearance diagnoses for the complexity of mind challenges. Medications provide excellent answers for many, but too often dysfunctional mind activities stream on beyond the range of cut and paste medications answers.

The complexity of human life exists as separate perceptions in the lives of every human being, and disdains homogenized solutions. Psychiatric interventions require far more customization, less managed-care commoditization, and far more neuroscience-based medical precision. Without attention to those imperative details we can expect to continue the dark ages before data, before Galileo and informed telescopic interventions.

ADHD & Executive Function – Low Hanging Fruit

Nowhere in psychiatry are these several medical perplexities more fully realized than in the diagnosis and treatment of “ADHD,” only a small tip of the significantly larger Executive Function Iceberg. Nowhere in psychiatry is there more public outcry, medical confusion, labeling consternation and medication imprecision than in the current vagaries of ADHD diagnosis and treatment. Brain measures remain remarkably absent.

The current labeling system is logical, reasonable and often useful for short periods, however it, more frequently than not, disregards the peer-reviewed perceptions of modern brain science associated with informed self management over time. Drifting in the North Atlantic some ADHD icebergs are recognizable from the surface, but the real, the brain functional challenges float beneath the surface as manifest Executive Function Challenges.

Too often ADHD, when fully perceived at it’s depths below the surface, is actually Attention Abundance Disorder, the paradoxical opposite of Deficit. The actual functional/processing/reality problem: Abundance. The default/reductionistic/inadequate label: Deficit.

…90% of errors in thinking aren’t errors of thinking, but rather errors of perception.
Edward de Bono

Implications For Psychiatric Diagnosis And Treatment

These ADHD superficial assessments, unencumbered by real data, by underlying brain and body function connected to contemporary neuroscience, encourage everyone to continue to effortlessly speculate about both diagnosis and treatment for a number of other mind conditions as well – including depression, anxiety, bipolar, and PTSD. Without science everyone from your family practitioner, to cotton farmers in Possum Hollow become, by default of whimsy, board certified in psychiatry.

About 90% of IED children exhibit a very elevated Cu/ Zn ratio in blood, coincident with increased urine pyrroles.
William Walsh PhD

Biology, Bipolar and Personality

intermittent explosive disorder

Too Much Copper?

More than simply a mood disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder seems so completely atypical and unreasonable. IED behavior is, as Dr Walsh describes in his Nutrient Power,1 like an exploding volcano or a runaway train, often out of the blue.  With fresh neuroscience insights those who suffer with IED clearly need more consideration than a reflexive, shoot from the hip, mood stabilizer.
The puzzle here: those who suffer with IED, more often than not, simply don’t look like they have a problem… and then it hits the fan.

I wrote here at CorePsych about IED back in ’08. In that post you will note that IED diagnostic appearances remain the same but biomedical evidence options now dramatically improve, and target discrimination provides more predictable options:

Short Intermittent Explosive Overview: Cu/Zn Ratio and Pyrroles

For those looking for answers I’ve already collected assessment resources for biomedical measurement and intervention – see them just below, as they apply to Intermittent Explosive Disorder. 

But first the basics: Dr Walsh, reports a study with 1500 children identified as Intermittent Explosive from his extensive chemical database.2  These children were, more often than not, well-behaved and cooperative – except for the occasional explosions of unmanageable rage

As Dr Walsh describes these children and adolescents:

In most cases, the episode would end within 15-30 minutes, and the child would have remorse and might beg forgiveness. However, the meltdowns would continue and often involved physical assaults and destruction of property.3

Laboratory Findings for Intermittent Explosive Disorder

Remember these basic findings:

About 90% of IED children exhibit a very elevated Cu/ Zn ratio in blood,4 often coincident with elevated urine pyrroles.3

Previous clinical and laboratory findings of Copper and Pyrrole elevations reported at CorePsych:

  1. Copper/Zinc Ratio Elevated – Video
  2. Pyrrole Elevation – Video
  3. Copper/Zinc Relevant for PMS – Video

Intermittent Explosive Treatment Outcomes: Quite Promising

Most families report somewhat improved behavior during the first week of nutrient therapy, with about 60 days needed for the full effect. Any ongoing psychiatric medications are continued during the first two to three months of nutrient therapy , with about 80% of the families reporting success in weaning the child off the drugs without a return of the explosions.3

Brief Conclusion on IED

Yes, nothing in medicine proves categorically correct, simply because of inherent human complexity. However, these findings encourage us to move beyond diagnosis by appearances into more data driven interventions.

I’m with Galileo – measurements matter.

Stuck Is Frozen | Unstuck: A More Complicated Process

oppositinal defiant, neuroscience, neurotransmitters

Oppositional Defiant And Stuck

For years we identified oppositional defiant behaviors by using inadequate, superficial, appearance criteria. Because no biological markers existed these lost, certainly misunderstood, oppositional defiant individuals often became segregated, even by the mental health community, as quite untreatable.

The internal admonition: “Refer him out.” “Get him off the streets.” The psychiatric recipe: mood stabilizers, stimulant medications, guesswork and cross your fingers.

“Behavior, character, narcissistic personality disorders” – they often appear stuck somewhere in the woods, beyond care, with no explanations or insights except perhaps in years of psychoanalysis.  Their extant DSM [Diagnostic Statistical Manual] label until recently was too often overheard as a disdainful slur: “Oh him, he’s Axis II.”  Read: “untreatable.”

Into this pervasive confusion enters Dr William Walsh. More on Walsh and biology in a moment.

—————

Notes On Psych Medication Treatment Objectives

First a brief historical perspective:

—————

Brain Activity Measured: Mood, Cognition, Behavior

Consider brain activity itself, not just the appearances of brain activity. Feeling, thinking and behaving reveal underlying brain function, beyond simple appearances.

Mood – Serotonin

At the turn of the 20th century we began to identify and understand moods – feelings. Depression, anxiety, phobias, and feelings, through Freud’s insights, connected with childhood experience, trauma, and imagination – instead of suspected dark humors flowing through the body. From those days though today oppositional defiant behaviors remain presumptively based on internal, affect-driven conflicts. Oppositional defiant behaviors, Freudian theorists would say, derive [only] from internal conflict. But consider this: that Freudian assessment of causality requires deep pockets – long-term residential care, jail, or psychoanalysis.

Through Freud’s observations we did began to understand that unconscious conflicts drive imbalances of feelings and moods. Yes, they do. However, those ‘feelings’ observations prove, as de Bono observes, “Excellent, but not enough.”

Treatment Objectives Limited: address the feelings. Treatment options: psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications, identify and manage feelings.  That “feelings perspective” persists as the limited, inaccurate current standard of care for oppositional defiant challenges. Try an SSRI. Don’t think about dopamine or methylation.

Cognition – Dopamine

Quite reluctantly and only recently, in the last 20 years, psychiatry now adds cognition – thinking. SPECT brain imaging, functional appreciation of real brain activities, especially in the prefrontal cortex, now opens new maps for improved treatment options. Interestingly, however, thinking and cognition did not make it solidly into the recent DSM 5 revision, except for macro thinking deficiencies: Traumatic Brain Injury and Dementia. Brain function and elemental neuroscience imbalances remain outside of the current standard of care. Even today appearance diagnoses and consequential treatment imprecision prevails. Measuring cognitive activity and reactions to changing reality as a clinical standard of care in 2014? Not yet.

ADHD, the most obvious, most pandemic of thinking disorders, remains almost totally misunderstood even by those experts in the field who discuss and treat behavioral attributes of “ADHD.” Brain function and neuroscience take second place over platitudes about mercurial behaviors, confusion about appearance parameters, and teacher reports. Neuroscience advocates find themselves in an ADHD Galileo moment. Denial of neuroscience evidence and modern measurement technology prevails.

We don’t yet think sufficiently about thinking. Man’s relationship with Changing Reality, his cognitive adjustments to the changing scene of his life: remarkably overlooked and not measured. Since thinking is not on everyday assessment radar many cognitive-thinking disorders look like, become misidentified as untreatable personality, character disorders.

If a cognitive-thinking diagnosis such as “ADHD” remains the appearance diagnostic standard over more neuroscientifically  based “Executive Function Challenges” – then it’s no wonder that the public, down to freshmen in high school, consider themselves board certified in psychiatry. With superficial-labels-criteria everyone becomes a “ADHD expert.” With superficial diagnostic criteria medical treatment becomes an ever more speculative and superficial roll of the dice. Witness the remarkably inaccurate musings of the New York Times on these matters and you will even more appreciate the damage of posturing, gossip, non-science, and medical imprecision.

Treatment Objectives Limited: address the thinking/cognitive challenges. Treatment options: Stimulants for dopamine, non stimulants for glutamate and norepinephrine, neurofeedback, enhanced metacognition. Don’t think of serotonin even though it might be a related problem.

Behavior – Multiple Biomedical Contributions

Behavioral challenges arise in associations with both serotonin and dopamine, affective and cognitive imbalances. Most treatment protocols do now include a variety of interventions to manage both affect and cognition, and yet many in that mysterious Behavior Disorder group remain too frequently overlooked. Most importantly, those who suffer with Behavior Disorder appear to remain free from either affective or cognitive conflict, beyond serotonin and beyond dopamine.

Neuroscience findings do exist, but remain under-appreciated as important markers. Categorical answers often fail to fully address the underlying complexity of biomedical contributions.

Treatment objectives less limited, more comprehensive: Measure biomedical markers first, then treat the complexity associated with both laboratory data and behavioral presentations. Feelings and thinking, Serotonin and Dopamine, and all the enzyme systems matter.

The New Biology and Oppositional Defiant: ODD

Dr Walsh

Enter Dr William Walsh and interesting findings from his recent book Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry, Heal Your Brain.

Through new understandings of biologically based behavioral biotypes that include affect-feelings, and cognition-thinking present fresh opportunities to understand this least understood of the brain functions – behavior. Interestingly, behavior disorders such as Oppositional Defiant and ADHD now provide fruitful soils for more serious biologic germination.

From ADHD to Bipolar to Borderline, just what is the problem for those who don’t move forward with changing reality? They range in typical response from angry to stubborn, to imperious, to irritated to narcissistic – either in the context of family, job, or life in general they’re oppositional, intractably opinionated and incessantly struggling for control.

CorePsych Posting Agenda: Walsh Behavioral Biotypes

From murderers to ADHD, from Oppositional Defiant to Conduct Disorders, biology – actual biologic markers – can turn the tide of challenging, apparently conflict-free, behaviors. From the early 1970s for more than 20 years Bill Walsh studied violent crimes1 at Statesville Correctional Center in Joliet, IL.

Noteworthy is the fact that his conclusions remain applicable today. Why? Because they’re data driven and evidence based – results from reviews of over 1.5 million laboratory results associated with Behavior Disorders and ADHD.

—————-

Problems With Treatment For Chemical Imbalances Manifesting ODD Using Nutrient Protocols

  1. ODD and Oppositional Disorder Non-compliance: Undermethylation findings are almost always associated with deep thinkers who remain non-compliant with specific interventions, and especially oppositional with supplements.
  2. Monitor the actual taking of both medications and supplements – difficult but necessary until the recovery begins to take place, often several months later for undermethylators. Don’t use the Honor System, adolescents and young adults especially remain non-compliant in association with undermethylation.
  3. Regularly Reconfirm Treatment Expectations so the patient will know how long to expect it will take before they show improvements so they will endure. Knowing and stating expectations will provide some reassurance.
  4. Undermethylation is measured most especially with Whole Blood Histamine and SAM/SAH ration available at Doctor’s Data. See this previous CorePsych post for more details – this one on the comorbidity with ADHD and depression.
  5. The Walsh Nutrient Protocol aims at increasing serotonin and dopamine levels in the brain.
  6. Methylation suppresses SERT and DAT transporters on the presynaptic neuron, keeping both serotonin and dopamine in the synapse.
  7. ODD Clinical Pearl From Dr Walsh: First get the adolescent or adult alone in the room to search for a common ground, an objective they can subscribe to beyond correcting their ODD behavior. Find out what they  want for themselves: with a boy who’s short: Zinc will help him grow – with an adolescent girl ODD with acne: Zinc will help with their acne. Finding their objectives will help with their built-in need to be right and disagree.

CorePsych Post Agenda: Behavior Disorders & ADHD Subsets

The Posting Plan: My mission at CorePsych remains the same as when I started writing in ’06: Neuroscience evidence changes thinking. When we understand the value of evidence in these chemical imbalances and target specific objectives we can more effectively help those who suffer, often even with the following unusual personality disorders.

From Walsh’s book1 and his database of 1500 children I’ll bring you regular outlines here at CorePsych for measuring and helping to correct each of these:

  1. Oppositional Defiant Disorder [ODD] –  Undermethylated: Iron will with opposition to all authority, even dating back to age two.
  2. Intermittent Explosive Disorder [IED] – Well behaved and cooperative but associated with occasions of unexplained uncontrollable rage.
  3. Conduct Disorder [CD]Elevated Urine Pyrroles: Act out aggressively and express anger inappropriately including violence, destruction of property, lying, bullying, stealing and truancy.
  4. Antisocial Personality Disorder [ASPD] – Sociopaths, cruelty to animals, fascination with fire, ODD by 4 and CD by 10 yo.
  5. Nonviolent Behavior Disorders – 3 subtypes: 1. Undermethylated, 2. Glucose dyscontrol, 3. Malabsorbers
  6. ADHD 2/3 Show Increased Zn/Cu Ratios: 3 subtypes: 1. Inattentive, 2. Impulsive, 3. Combined

—————–

Zinc and Copper

End Note: Elevated Copper/Zinc Ratio In 2004 Study 2

Open label outcome study measuring effectiveness of nutrient therapy for 207 patients with behavioral disorders. Cu/Zn elevated in 75.4% of patients with elevated serum copper and depressed plasma zinc.  More than 3 of 4 suffer with this imbalance. These next posts will share Dr Walsh’s experience regarding specific corrective actions.

Coming posts: Intermittent episodic rage, attention deficit without hyperactivity, and ADHD with hyperactivity.

Stay tuned for more character,

Copper Levels, Mind, Anxiety and Estrogen http://www.corepsych.com/2014/11/copper-levels-mind-anxiety-estrogen/ http://www.corepsych.com/2014/11/copper-levels-mind-anxiety-estrogen/#comments Mon, 03 Nov 2014 13:47:49 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=14369 Copper Levels: How and Why

Blood copper levels elevate brain copper. The results often start with decreased Executive Function or ADHD symptoms, and Anxiety. Copper matters. Measure copper to assess copper problems.

Free copper, anxiety

Measure Free Copper for Anxiety

How

Very briefly: copper facilitates the breakdown of dopamine into norepinephrine. [See the illustration just below.] Free copper levels, measured by using serum copper and ceruloplasmin calculations, will become important in treatment only if measured and identified. Calculations are in order.

See this recent relevant CorePsych copper post that details exactly how you can recognize the possibility of copper challenges, even in young children.

———————-

copper mind, dopamine, norepinephrine

Copper Facilitates Dopamine to Norepinephrine

The Ceruloplasmin Bus – % Free Copper

As Dr Judith Bowman of the Mensah Medical Clinic near Chicago explains: “Ceruloplasmin is the school bus that carries copper to the parts of the body that need it. Copper not carried on that school bus lingers on the corner and will get into trouble. Those that are left are the % Free Copper that create street neurotransmitter problems.” Brain copper matters.3

“Street problems” demonstrated in this illustration show how increased copper levels facilitate the metabolism of dopamine into norepinephrine. Norepinephrine in excess, as seen frequently in urinary neurotransmitter testing before becoming familiar with the Walsh Protocols, directly relates to anxiety – nervousness.

Dr Kaslow Comments

Then see this page on Copper/Zinc Imbalance from Jeremy Kaslow, MD on these same issues:

Many high-copper patients (often labeled “depressives”) experience severe PMS, are intolerant to estrogen, and may have a family history of postpartum depression. This group also has a high incidence of acne, eczema, sensitive skin, sunburn, headaches, poor immune function, and white spots under their fingernails. Elevated copper/zinc ratios can be especially serious for persons with low blood histamine (overmethylation). This combination of imbalances has been associated with anxiety, panic disorders, paranoia, and (in severe cases) hallucinations.2

Biomedical Testing Additions At CorePsych http://www.corepsych.com/2014/10/biomedical-testing-additions-corepsych/ http://www.corepsych.com/2014/10/biomedical-testing-additions-corepsych/#comments Sun, 26 Oct 2014 20:04:08 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=14296 Biomedical Testing Evolves At CorePsych

Last week I spent 5 days with Dr Bill Walsh at the Walsh Research

biomedical testing, walsh protocols, corepsych testing

Biomedical Testing Adds New Markers

Institute learning key clinical details on Walsh Protocols- and I strongly encourage any medical colleagues to sign on for the next Walsh Conference, anticipated in Spring 2015. Dr Walsh invited Dr Elizabeth Mumper, world authority on Autism Spectrum Disorder as a key presenter for that Walsh Research Institute training, with specific planned focus on Autism.  Many returned to Chicago after attending the first US Walsh Research Institute meeting in North Carolina this spring, he’s presented abroad now about 17 times, most often in Australia.

The Walsh Team takes biomedical testing to a completely new level through the review of volunteer patients eager to review additional options in the face of years of treatment failure. Patient interviews, detailed from sensitivity to clothing tags to hormone dysregulation, provided refreshing additional insights correlated with the medical and biomedical testing results.

CorePsych Protocols

New information brings new protocols and new laboratory relationships as documented in these two downloads. I’ve revised them for your review, available for download here at SlideShare:

Key Biomedical Testing Points

Pyrrole testing is highly specialized and requires specific experience to provide consistent outcomes. Dr Walsh and staff, including Dr. Albert Mensah and Dr. Judith Bowman from the Mensah Medical, and Dr Mumper [above] all agreed that testing could prove inaccurate, no matter how wonderful the lab. Their collective, refreshing point: always take a careful history and review patients medically for clinical details rather than sign off to simply treat lab results – even though they love the labs they’re regularly using.

The testing company they all appreciate and use regularly: Direct Health Care Access near Chicago.

Important note: The Walsh Research Institute is a non-profit, and they make that clear throughout the presentations. Strongly recommended for their clear mission regarding advancing informed, improved patient care.

Toxic Metal Overload Depression – Walsh Biotype http://www.corepsych.com/2014/10/toxic-metal-overload-depression-walsh/ http://www.corepsych.com/2014/10/toxic-metal-overload-depression-walsh/#comments Sun, 19 Oct 2014 10:00:53 +0000 http://www.corepsych.com/?p=14213 Toxic Metal Overload Depression – Walsh Biotypes: 5th of 5 Subsets

Since depression due to metal toxicity is relatively uncommon, a logical first step is to rule out the presence of undermethylation , folate deficiency, copper overload, pyrrole disorder, casein /gluten allergy , or a thyroid imbalance.
~ William Walsh

Toxic Metal Overload: ADHD, Depression & Treatment Failure

Identify Toxic Metals

Identify Toxic Metals

WD5: Walsh Depression #5 – This is the last in a series [WD1: Undermethylation here, | WD2: Overmethylation here | WD3: Copper Excess here | WD4: Pyrrole Disorder here] of 5 posts on Dr Bill Walsh’s 5 biotypes of depression as described in his book Nutrient Power 2 listed below. A careful grounding in these subsets will connect with laboratory findings for more predictable medical results. This brief report on the Toxic Metal Overload subtype of depression closes this Walsh Depression biotype series – more coming on Autism, Alzheimer’s, Mood disorder.

This Toxic Metal Overload biotype is exceedingly important for CorePsych readers because it the least common and the most difficult to identify. I see Toxic Metal Overload most often, as Dr Walsh indicates above, after I’ve looked carefully at several other comorbid conditions, especially immune dysregulation. More often than not I test for heavy metals for almost any chronic psychiatric treatment failure, especially with years of chronic bowel or metabolic/immunity issues.

Toxic Metal: Too many fail SSRI treatments with trial after trial of otherwise appropriate medications for depression symptoms, not the biologically-based disorder. At CorePsych I’ve used Tissue Mineral Analysis – Hair Trace Element testing for years, and found it to prove exceedingly useful to resolve likely treatment failures.

Personality & Character Disorders, Axis II – Now Biological and Treatable

As you take a few moments to review this CorePsych series of Walsh Depressions [all linked below] just think of the implications and possibilities for chronic psychiatric treatment failures. Many suffering individuals previously considered as ‘out of the range of treatment options’ now can consider evidence from multiple biomarker and laboratory testing options. In my office practice I’m at once humbled as I regularly find new answers based upon these fresh data points – and regretful that these protocols only now, belatedly come to my attention. These details matter everyday in any outpatient psychiatric practice.

About Dr William Walsh: CorePsych Critical Thinker

Dr Walsh has presented his research at the American Psychiatric Association, the U.S. Senate, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Society for Neuroscience, and has been a speaker at more than 30 international conferences. He has authored more than 200 scientific articles and reports, and has five patents.

Symptoms and Traits of Toxic Metal Overload

Approximately 5% of the 2,800 persons in our depression database exhibited toxic-metal poisoning as their primary chemical imbalance. Most of these cases involved overloads of lead, mercury, cadmium , or arsenic. A careful chemical analysis of toxic metals in scalp hair can serve as a screen, recognizing the possibility of a false positive resulting from external contamination. Many doctors test for toxic metal overload by introducing a chelating chemical that drives toxins from the body and then measuring the increased amount of toxins being excreted in the stool and urine. Unfortunately, reliable reference ranges have not yet been established for these challenge tests. Another barrier to diagnosis is differing symptoms for the various toxic metals.3

Lead: Toxic metals in the brain can cause great mischief including the following: weakening of the blood-brain barrier, altered neurotransmitter levels, destruction or demyelination of the myelin sheath, increased oxidative stress, destruction of glutathione and other protective proteins.4

Mercury: Is a lethal poison that is especially devastating to children from conception to age four years, the period when most brain development occurs.

Cadmium: Is especially dangerous since it tends to cause kidney damage and require careful removal.

Arsenic: Difficult to assess. A definitive test for arsenic poisoning is the presence of elevated levels in both urine and scalp hair.

See more details on all of these in Nutrient Power.2

No Dr Walsh Video On Toxic Metal Overload – Brief Dr Susser Comments: 3:02 min

———

Characteristics of Toxic Metal Overload – Incidence: 5% of clinical depression [n – 2800]: 4

  • Depression that arises suddenly during a period of relative calm and wellness
  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Increased irritability
  • Headaches and muscle weakness
  • Metallic taste in mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Low energy
  • Kidney and liver damage
  • Failure to respond to counseling or psychiatric medications
  • Significant cognitive decline
  • Mood swings
  • Nervousness
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle twitching
  • Tremors
  • Weakness
  • Muscle atrophy

Toxic Metal Disorder Response Time 5

There is mild worsening the first 10 days, followed by steady improvement for four to six months. Removal of lead is especially slow (half-life of long-term lead in the body is 22 years). Other metal toxins can be removed relatively quickly.

Four More Measurable Depression Biotypes

CorePsych Postings: the additional four Walsh depression biotypes, 3 and incidence in his research.

  1. Undermethylated – decreased serotonin and dopamine – 38%
  2. Overmethylated – elevated serotonin and dopamine – 20%
  3. Copper Excess – elevated norepinephrine – 17%
  4. Pyrrole Disorder – reduced serotonin, GABA – 15%
