the high numbers of depression/anxiety in teenagers

Posted by @bron, Apr 8, 2016

Hello; can any one give me their stories/results of helping our teenage population who are suffering from depression/anxiety? Is this also possible for the “what seems the new diagnosis of Bi-Polar Disorder” to these teenagers?

Hi @bron. Welcome to Connect. Thanks for starting this conversation. I’m tagging @pm2819, @strappiesandals and @susieqpants who have joined discussions about this in the past and may like to chime in.

Hi @bron
Bi-Polar Disorder is different than clinical or major depression

Researchers attribute the decline in the consumption of omega-3 fatty acids from fish and other sources in most populations to an increasing trend in the incidence of major depression
The most common nutritional deficiencies seen in patients with mental disorders are of omega–3 fatty acids, B vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that are precursors to neurotransmitters

I am attaching links to what has helped my son and many others with anxiety as well as major depression. Hope you find it helpful . One can also do more intensive research on this

Unfortunately Pyroluria falls outside the realm of mainstream medicine due to the fact that the only way to rectify the problem is by improving the sufferer’s nutritional status, diet, digestion and stress levels. Mainstream medicine relies on drugs to suppress a symptom or relieve suffering and this form of treatment will not work for a person who has a Pyrole disorder. Sadly sufferers of Pyroluria fall through the cracks and are often misdiagnosed and given medication or drugs that does nothing to rectify the underlying problem

PYROLURIA DISORDER

{ The problem comes when pyroles are being overproduced for genetic reasons or because of physical or emotional stress. This can lead to severe B6 and zinc deficiencies.
B6 AND ZINC

While there aren’t many nutrients that seem to directly affect neurotransmitters and brain functioning, zinc and B6 are two of the biggies. B6 is needed to make the neurotransmitters Dopamine, Serotonin and GABA in the brain. Zinc also has a great impact on the brain (and deserves a blog post of it’s own). Separately zinc is important for the gastrointestinal and immune systems, both of which influence brain health. }
