Treat or Prevent Depression without Drugs

Dr. Jonathan Wright for many years has pointed out that the three drug categories that conventional medicine uses to treat depression all try to increase the amount of neurotransmitters in the body. They often do not work very well and side effects are not uncommon. A better answer is to measure the amino acids in the urine, and replace the ones that are low. The body then uses these additional amino acids to make more of the deficient neurotransmitters that are needed. Two of the key amino acids that are usually low are tryptophan and phenylalanine. Sounds simple, and it usually works, without side effects. See Jonathan Wright’s Nutrition and Healing, Volume 18, issue 8, October, 2011.
