Nutritional Supplements for Depression

Doctor Motley - Supplements and DepressionNutritional Supplements for Depression

Genetic “expression” of any type of a gene whether bad or good, depends on your nutrition. The foods we eat are directly related to how are bad genes turn “on or off”. We discussed four genes that can create symptoms of depression if you carry the mutations in those genes.

There is research of particular vitamins and minerals that help stop the expression of action of these genes. In the office we recommend that patients get internal cell tests of the vitamins and minerals a cell contains, like a SPECTRACELL. Please know that it may take time to find the right combination of natural supplementation to balance your brain chemicals. This is a basic list of supplements that have been found to balance the expression of these genetic variants.

With this list I want us to see that basic nutrition helps us curb the effect of these genetic variants. We cant help that we don’t get the high amounts of nutrition we need to balance our genes, it’s the world we live in. We gotta find what works and go with it in this world of stress!!
