I've been taking easy child/difficult child to an Environmental Physician psychiatrist. He is Board Certified in Child/Adolescent Psychiatry. I'm pretty sure he started out in psychiatry and over the years discovered a link to environmental causes. For the past 12 years, he's been treating this way. He also will prescribe regular medications as needed. He ran a a lot of blood tests in the beginning to rule out underlying medical problems. He also did a urine test to check neurotransmitter levels. This isn't peer-reviewed science yet so isn't accepted as accurate by a lot of doctors. Her old psychiatrist has heard this new psychiatrist speak about this at a state meeting and says it is cutting edge but it isn't known yet if there is a direct relationship between neurotransmitters in the urine and in the brain. I'm thinking it is worth a try since the new psychiatrist has been doing this for so long, he must know what levels in the urine lead to good results. Her first test showed she was low in serotonin so he told her to start taking 5 HTP, an amino acid that is needed to make serotonin. Surprisingly, she was improved on the 3rd day. When we went back, he started her on another amino acid to increase her norepinephrine levels. She took that for 3 days and every day she had an explosive temper. He agreed that it was the supplement and said it is too soon to start that one. I am amazed, though, at how quickly these amino acids are having an effect (good or bad), so I am encouraged that she may get better this way. I stopped giving her the second one and that same day, she was better again. He does the testing every month and makes adjustments along the way based on the results. We go back on Friday and should get some of the results from the second test. I am interested to see if her serotonin levels are really increased. Just thought I would share this since it is a different way of dealing with all this. Has anyone else tried this? I was told by a naturopath last spring that it can be used with regular medications or supplements.
