Gut’s role in multiple sclerosis Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is commonly considered an autoimmune disease, depending on an auto-antibody attack against myelin. Though its antigens are unknown, specific biological markers (1) have not yet been identified, as well as pathognomonic symptoms and paraclinical tests that allow for a safe diagnosis (2). Diagnosis is not easy at […]

Parkinson can be reduced through natural remedies: a) Parkinson is caused by a brain dopamine deficit b) Brain dopamine is synthetised by tyrosine only, an essential amino- acid that originates only from diet c) Gut’s inability to absorb appropriate amounts of tyrosine reduces brain dopamine availability d) A disbiotic intestinal flora excessively decarboxylates tyrosine (see […]

Insomnia

Cephaleas Various neurotransmitters are involved in headaches: Serotonin: The role of serotonin is confirmed by the efficacy of triptan drugs, that are serotonin agonists, i.e. they are so similar to serotonin to be exchanged for it. Thus, the importance of increasing serotonin availability is essential. Unluckily due to their side effects, a frequent use in […]
