The chemicals in the human body, such as hormones, enzymes, and neurotransmitters, serve important purposes, not only in regulating our body’s functions, but also affecting the way we react to stress and more.
Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a chronic, recurring, and debilitating mental illness that is the most common in the United States.
As we continue to practice social distancing and following Covid restrictions to decrease the spread of the COVID-19 virus, our stress and anxiety levels intensify.

Brain chemical imbalance may cause serious mental illnesses.
Hormonal imbalances can occur in men, women and children. As your body’s chemical messengers, hormones play an important role in regulating normal bodily functions. They are produced in the endocrine glands before being transported to different parts of the body, essentially instructing your organs and tissues what to do. When you have too much or too little of a certain hormone, hormonal imbalance occurs. As hormones are crucial in key bodily processes such as metabolism and reproduction, any imbalances should not be overlooked.
Stress is caused by a person’s physical and emotional reaction to life events. Heavy workloads and the modern lifestyle create excessive chronic stress in people today.

The Real Life Story
A couple of years ago, a college student came to our clinic for a mental health consultation. The 18-year-old youth was bright, knowledgeable, and intelligent. However, he constantly had issues with homework.
He spent many hours doing the research and won’t let it go even though he exhausted his source of information. He was often late for handing in his assignments.
He tried many management techniques but could not help researching compulsively. As a result, he lost many hours of sleep, was frustrated with his imperfect work, fearful of failure, and had doubts about his ability.
In addition, he has a low tolerance for stress and gets overwhelmed easily. He once felt so gloomy that he began to question the value of being alive.
His blood work and urine tests indicated that this young man suffered from biochemical imbalances that prevented his brain from producing enough neurotransmitters, serotonin in particular. He had also lost zinc and B6 through the urine due to Kryptopyrrole, the body’s inability to metabolize hemoglobin.
In modern medicine, the liver’s primary function is to filter the blood, pass it to the rest of the body, metabolize and detoxify food and medication.
