Dopamine, Serotonin, Norepinephrine and mood

Gastroenterology is the branch of medicine whereby the digestive system and its disorders are studied. Many conditions such as Crohn’s, colitis, celiac, are related to autoimmune system activation in which a leaky gut may play a role.  Other conditions such as Attention defecit, bipolar, depression, autism, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, POTS and chronic lyme may be related to chemical metabolisms problems which may be a part of enzyme defects in the methyl cycle, folic cycle, methionine cycle, detox cycle- which occurs in numerous cells throughout the body.
Defects in certain enzymes lead to neurotransmitter problems of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin- seen in panic attacks, anxiety, attention defecit hyperactivity, parkinson,s ( a dopamine problem), Alzheimer’s ( a  possible detoxification problem in the brain associated with metals)
Chronic lyme and its associated coinfections- may be continuous activation of the immune system by live infection, chemicals elicited as a result of this infection may worsen the condition and even perpetuate the symptoms. Having a biochemical understanding of the enzymes involved – which is unique to each individual might help tailor a treatment that is for that person based on their  genes, dna, enzymes and their own response to the conditions which initiated their illness. This premise is true for other autoimmune diseases such as celiac, crohn’s colitis, multiple sclerosis, autoimmune thyroid disease

mthfr DEFECTS AND THE EFFICIENCY OF THE ENZYME

1298 AND 677 ENZYME DEFECTS AND DECREASED mthfr ENZYME EFFICIENCY

this ILNK ABOVE EXPALINS WHY PEOPLE WITH mthfr DEFECTS HAVE PROBLEMS CONVERTING folic acid to active 5-L-methryfolate. THe reduced enzyme activity as a result of these gene mutations affects the whole methylation and folic acid cycle. Its an explanation for abortions( not enough methylfolate and possible neural tube defects). Its a consideration in affecting the immune system,. It plays a role in neurotransmitter dopamine, serotonin and neurepinephrine chemicals in patients with lyme, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, anxiety, panic, bipolar, depression. In its association with immune system and detoxification, it plays a role in alzheimers, parkinsons, and many other degernerative diseases such as heart attack risk , stroke, blood clots ( which are related to homocysteine levels, methionine and b12 and folic acid)
