Underlying Your Daily Discomfort, Neurotransmitter Imbalance


This is Dr. Lam, founder of drlam.com. And today’s topic is, when a body reached
maximum stimulatory level, are they causing damage to stimulation receptors within the
brain, or is it just the body that is getting damaged? Well, this is a very interesting question
because most of the advanced people of adrenal fatigue will know that if you take too much
of even whether it is supplements, or medications, or certain foods, your body can become overwhelmed
and become anxious. You may become more fatigued as well. You can have panic attacks. Now part of it is regulated by neurotransmitter
imbalance. But at the same time, the question is, how
much damaged? Now the body has its own automatic rebalancing
capabilities. So just because you reached maximum stimulatory
level does not mean that damage will occur. For example, if you take magnesium, too much
magnesium is not going to be staying in the body because the body has an automatic way
of getting out of it. And the way it does is to facilitate a diarrhea
that is harmless. So when you are taking too much magnesium
you automatically will get diarrhea. Now in the case of when you reach a maximum
stimulatory level of other compounds, that’s not like magnesium, that leads to a body having
more anxiety. Then it is a warning sign that this is arrived. So the body usually, when it comes to that
point, will upregulate the detoxification pathways, either at the liver or even in the
intracellular space as well as the extracellular mechanisms. By doing that the body is trying to facilitate
the removal of these metabolites as well as these compounds once it senses that it does
not need it anymore. Now there are also regulatory feedback loops
that’s already built in into the system that are negative in nature. So when the body has too much of certain things
then it basically shuts off the production in such as thyroid as well as other hormones. But at the same time certain neurotransmitters
may have a problem because they don’t have this negative loop, and epinephrine is one
of them. So reaching maximum stimulatory level does
not necessarily mean there’s damage. It just means that the body has to work harder. And if this is not resolved then potential
damage can occur over time and this can be very problematic. Because once a damage in place it is very
hard to reverse.

  1. "Because once a damage in place it is very hard to reverse." – can you talk about how or if this damage can be reversed?
