Dopamine is the Master Neurotransmitter
What is DARPP-32 and how does it relate to Parkinson's Disease?
The Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2000 was given out for DARPP-32 research. Dopamine is the master controller for everything – the neurotransmitters, hormones, progesterone, estrogen, testosterone, serotonin. One of the ways we see this manifest in humans is with drug use. Another common dopamine-related disorder is Parkinson's Disease.
A dopamine problem can explain everything from Parkinson's Disease to gambling, food addiction, sex addiction or alcoholism.
What do we do about it?
We're back to Functional Medicine's basic mantra: Test, don't guess!
An Organix profile is your best bet when it comes to neurological conditions like Parkinson's, Autism, Addictions or Eating Disorders. Not only does it give you information about dopamine status, but it also tells you about potential neurotoxins that may be damaging your brain cells.
