Tailor Your Brain’s Neurotransmission with Nutrients — William J. Walsh, Ph.D. #567
By: Dave Asprey
Dr. Bill Walsh is an international speaker on topics related to brain chemistry and behavior, learning, and mental health disorders. Over more than three decades as a research scientist and engineer, Dr. Walsh developed a science-based nutrient system that has helped thousands of people challenged by these disorders and is used by doctors throughout the world.
His approach recognizes that nutrient imbalances can alter brain levels of key neurotransmitters, disrupt gene expression of proteins and enzymes, and cripple the body’s protection against environmental toxins.
In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, we talk about Dr. Walsh’s exciting new research that includes significant developments in the areas of nutrient therapy and nutritional psychiatry, particularly Bipolar disorder. You’ll also learn the importance of the NMDA receptor and why antioxidant therapy is on its way to becoming mainstream.
