"I have made huge improvements in both my physical health and my psychological and spiritual well-being. I am deeply grateful to Vivian”

Your brain is a complex organ that is influenced by many chemical messengers. Some have a calming effect, like Serotonin and GABA, others are energizing, like Dopamine and Norepinephrine, while still others are the “Feel Good” chemicals that promote a sense of well-being like endorphins.
Your body produces these chemicals with the help of neurotransmitters. When these chemicals are in balance, you have energy to get up and take on the day and also feel calm and focused. When they are not, it can lead to anxiety, depression, panic attacks, eating disorders, sleep disturbances, and more.
I use Neuro-Nutrient Therapy, a modality that involves nourishing the brain and body by providing essential amino acids. Amino acids are a precursor to neurotransmitters. The right supplementation program can provide the brain with what it needs to regulate mood and calm the stress response.
When your body is producing the right level of neurotransmitters, either on its own or with the help of essential amino acids, your brain is nourished, and your emotional body is calm.
I provide a Neuro-nutrient questionnaire for you to fill out and bring to your appointment. This helps me pinpoint which amino acids will be the most beneficial to you. Then while you are in the office with me I have you take the amino acids, based on your responses on your questionnaire, to see which is best for you. The effects can be immediate. During the first few weeks I will monitor your progress to make sure you are receiving the intended healing effects.
