    Yes, the brain uses enzymes to make neurotransmitters. According to my daughter's biochem book, there are now 50+ neurotransmitters. Most don't even have a name yet.

    Serotonin is the most studied one. I have tried every SSRI antidepressant on the market. Resting allows the neurotransmitters to rebalance themselves.

    An enzyme is a biological catalyst consisting of an amino acid + a metal ion. A toxic metal can act as an antagonist and make wrong enzymes that make wrong chemicals or don't even work at all. Enzymes also break down substances.

    I had severe memory problems, bad CFS, at least two viruses, fell asleep at work on a daily basis.

    The end result was that a hair analysis found Lead, Cadmium, Arsenic & Antimony at 4X the threshold of healthy ppl. I'm chelating these out and am much better. On a per week basis, I am improving. Chelation is a slow process but it does produce incremental results.

    where did you get your hair analysis done? How are you chelating--pills or iv? Did you ever get your Mercury fillings out? I was thinking of doing this.

    Dr. Andrew Cutler is a Ph.D. chemistry prof who teaches pharmcokinetics at a medical school. He says to use a hair analysis kit from DDI (Doctor's Data Inc.)~$100, using the bargraph results, you can determine whether you have a mercury toxicty signature. Mercury skews the healthy mineral results using "counting rules".

    I used a kit by BodyBalance ~$60. I may have mercury too...as my good minerals are kinda low. The chelation is hard on the body so you don't want to go through it unless you have to.

    Is a collection of posts by Dr. Cutler.

    I chelated 14 rounds of DMSA @ 12.5mg/4 hours. 3 days ON and 3 days OFF. The last two rounds were with Alpha Lipoic Acid 25mg/3 hours, which chelates intra-celluar.

    I got my amalgam fillings out 3 years ago, but my health continued to decline.[This Message was Edited on 04/02/2007]

    Look at my post "neurotransmitter precursors" dated Jan 18. I have tracked down many of the nutrients responsible for the production of several key neurotransmitters; most of them are amino acids. I take these substances everyday and now I can read as much as I want when I want. It's sure nice to have cognitive function once again!

    good luck!
