EX:Fatigue, dizzy, Blood Pressure changes, agitation
Parasym Plus by Dr. Diana Driscoll
Passionflower, GABA, glutamine, B6 (P5P), Mag, 5 HTP, B1
Taurine – helps ion transport into brain
Further de-inflame nerves -acetyl carnitine – 300 mg three times a day, MSM 1-4g three times a day (in apple sauce/nut butter)

Agitation, anger, insomnia – Stress increases histamine in the brain
– shows with increased agitation/skin issues/insomnia
Vitamin B5 1-2 g with 1 g Vitamin C every meal
Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone and B Complex

Agitation/anger – Glutamate build up in brain – NAC and B Complex; theanine/Mg/ 5HTP/DIM Pro
(can’t use NAC – use molybdenum 500 mcg x 1 mo then 100-300 mcg qd) Allows for sulfur processing.

Anxiety/panic attacks: Lithium slows glutamate formation/uptake – affects Na+ channels

GENETIC MUTATIONS – MTHFR, COMT, MAO, SUOX
LABS: Neurotransmitter testing, homocysteine/A1c (elevations increase blood brain barrier damage), infections
You may need broad spectrum treatment – artemisinin for bugs Quicksilver brand put in nut butters to tolerate
