Not Feeling Like Yourself?


Not Feeling Like Yourself?
We should feel good! Could your brain chemistry be the reason you are not feeling like yourself?

Life is meant to be enjoyed and we are meant to feel good! But somehow, it seems for many of us, our standard of living is stuck on “good enough” or “the best we can hope for.” In our fast-paced, modern culture, we suffer from Low Expectation Syndrome regarding what our life can be and the energy and mood we are capable of feeling. When did we decide that it is too much to expect to feel good all the time? We have accepted a life full of false moods, false energy, false appetite, and false weight….a false life! When my clients come to me for private coaching, they often describe it as “not feeling like themselves lately.” See if your brain chemistry is behind your false moods with this Brain Chemistry Assessment.

I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to settle for feeling this way. When you consistently invest in your whole health-physical, mental, emotional and spiritual you can quickly turn your hum drum mood and energy into vibrant, engaged, passionate living.

One of the fastest ways you can turn your energy around is through your food choices. Food speaks to our DNA and turns our genes on or off. Food provides the nutrients needed for our body to perform all of its necessary functions, including producing something called neurotransmitters-or brain chemicals. These are the chemicals that enable us to feel emotionally stable, self-confident, alert and energetic. Different neurotransmitters help us tolerate stress, relieve our pain, relax and enjoy pleasure. All of these feelings, which I will group together and call “good moods” can be enhanced or inhibited by what we eat, because they are all generated from the building blocks of protein called amino acids.

When necessary, supplementation can be used to turn around deficiencies in any one of the neurotransmitters. This is called Neuro Nutrient Therapy and it is one of the therapies I frequently use with my clients. In fact, Neuro Nutrient Therapy is so effective that I have begun to study with a pioneer in this field-Julia Ross. Julia is the Executive Director of Recovery Systems Clinic in San Francisco and the author of “The Mood Cure” and “The Diet Cure”. I’ll be interning in her clinic and reviewing my client cases with her on a regular basis.
