- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Why does our culture continue to separate the brain from the body? What lab testing protocol is in place when initially "treating" someone who has been taken into custody who may do harm to themselves or others? Is anyone "brave enough" to check the Copper/Zinc levels (zinc is needed for the synthesis of GABA - gamma-aminobutyric acid, a "calming" neurotransmitter that combats overloads of norepinephrine), malabsorption (laculose-to-mannitol test), food intolerances, levels of metallothionein (filters metal toxins at the intestinal and brain/blood barrier), etc. Why are we not wondering WHY someone snaps? Why are we eager to ignore every single possible biological cause of "mental illness" and quick to prescribe drugs which will very likely make the symptoms worse or cause even more problems?
