Hello, I recently really cleaned up my diet big time! Over the last few months I have seen huge improvement in my symptoms. If I could just get my cognitive function back to 100 percent. Really decided to kick butt on a really detox based diet and some of my old nureo psycholocal symptoms are back. Not in full force but enough to make me feel unpleasant. Mainly OCD ,intrisive thoughts, and depression. Can a clean diet make you her in the brain? I feel better when my diet was dirty.

I am starting to more better days than bad. Day where I feel 80 percent. I feel like this diet change will help me turn a corner in the long run

My LLMD is very big on diet. He had me clean up my diet before he even put me on antibiox, and I did have some herxing just from that.

You can look into Gou Teng. Buhner recommends it for neuro symptoms.

I remember not feeling too shiny when I cleaned up my diet.

I think when you eat crap sugary high carb foods, you light up the dopamine receptors in the brain somewhat.

I was totally addicted to sweets and other junk foods at one time.

When you stop eating those "treats" I think it takes a little while to adjust to the new way. Your brain will make new ways to release the dopamine, but it takes a little time.

I think if you stick with it and see it through, you will not regret it.

I was wondering is their any safe ways to raise dopamine? I think some of my nuero issue are from low dopamine.

You might want to try essential oils too. You can use them topically, internally or with a diffuser. I'd recommend either Young Living or Doterra as I believe they are the purest blands. You can google either one and your symptom and you'll find suggested oils and how to use them.

Tyrosine is a precursor of ldopa which makes dopamine.

Ever have signs of candida? If you had more sugar and carbs before your "cleaner diet", you could be starving candida now. - and feeling the dieoff.
Had initial lyme symptoms late 80's, then again w/with bullseye early 90's. Ended ABX for Lyme in 2015. Rebuilding / repairing / fine tuning since then; member "10 Percenters Lyme Club". What an adventure this has been. Hashimotos adds to the enjoyment.
