Stress Relief

 

 

Through personal experience we know that nutritional supplements play a key role in any recovery plan for environmental illnesses. Important nutrients are depleted during any chronic illness but this seems to be especially true for environmental illness sufferers who have been shown to exhibit deficiencies of multiple vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including vital anti-oxidant molecules such as cysteine and glutathione. We've selected a number of products over a range of categories that we recommend based on both personal experience, recommendation by leading physicians and review of clinical studies.

Enzymatic Therapy DHEA-5 mg -- 5 mg - 60 UltraCaps

Enzymatic Therapy DHEA-5 mg -- 5 mg - 60 UltraCaps

 

Manufacturer:
DHEA is an important adrenal hormone that supports proper immune response and enhances energy levels, thyroid function, mental well-being and memory. DHEA levels tend to decline with aging and adrenal stress.
Supplementing with Enzymatic Therapy DHEA 5 mg helps maintain normal levels of the DHEA hormone, which decline with aging and adrenal stress.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
DHEA is the most abundant hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It is used in the body's reponse to stress. Whereas prolonged exposure to high levels of cortisol (another stress hormone) is known to induce depression and impair immune function, DHEA has the opposite effects, producing a sense of well-being and ability to handle stress as well as improving immune function. DHEA has shown benefits in many other areas but what patients always tend to notice is a lifting of their mood. As a result DHEA is now in clinical trials involving depressed patients.

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue and stress are common amongst environmental illness sufferers. In fact one of the main established abnormalities in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is poor adrenal function including low levels of DHEA in particular. There is also a lot of anecdotal evidence from doctors and patients that treating adrenal fatigue often has great results for relieving the symptoms of chemical sensitivity, allergies and candida. Panax ginseng is the most potent ginseng available and is very effective at improving well-being, reducing feelings of stress, balancing blood sugar and many other symtoms of adrenal fatigue.

Source Naturals SAMe -- 400 mg - 30 Enteric Coated Tablets

Source Naturals SAMe -- 400 mg - 30 Enteric Coated Tablets

 

Manufacturer:
Source Naturals SAMe is a stable, bioavailable form of S-adensoyl-L-methionine. These tablets are enteric coated and blister packed to prevent breakdown and inactivation of the ingredients. Studies show that SAMe helps support a positive outlook. It is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it affects the synthesis and activation of various proteins, such as neurotransmitters. SAMe also plays a role in transmethylation. Transmethylation reactions affect the synthesis, activation, and metabolism of various biological molecules. Some compounds that SAMe methylates are phospholipids. This is a fundamental step in the mediation of cell to cell communication.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Of most immediate benefit to environmental illness sufferers are the actions of SAMe on liver and brain function. Low glutathione levels and resulting oxidant stress are commonplace in environmental illnesses. SAMe, being a key component in it's production, has been shown to raise glutathione levels and reduce oxidative stress. Cognitive and mood symptoms are also invariably present to one degree or another in envionmental illnesses. SAMe acts to help these problems through a process called methylation which results in the production of important brain chemicals. It can thus relieve depression and other mental/emotional problems. Many, many studies have confirmed the effectiveness of SAMe supplements for both liver and brain problems.

Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP -- 100mg - 60 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP -- 100mg - 60 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
Supports Serotonin Synthesis Jarrow Formulas 5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) is an extract of Griffonia simplicifolia seeds from coastal West Africa. Purity is assured by HPLC. 5-HTP is the direct metabolic precursor of serotonin and is important for the production of melatonin.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
5-HTP's action on serotonin levels has widespread benefits. Multiple studies have demonstrated its success in treating depression and anxiety. The results show that this supplement is as effective as conventional anti-depressant drugs. 5-HTP also helps with sleep whether depression and/or anxiety are also present or not. Our own experience and that of others has also shown that serotonin increasing measures, including 5-HTP supplements, can significantly reduce the severity of reactions to chemicals in those with MCS.

Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine 500 -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine 500 -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
L-Tyrosine is utilized for the synthesis of catecholamine neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. Jarrow Formulas L-Tyrosine is the pure, crystalline amino acid from microbiological fermentation. It is NOT derived from milk.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
There is a general concensus among integrative physicians treating environmental illnesses that patients commonly have signs of both neurotransmitter and thyroid hormone deficiency. Both of which can lead to depression, anxiety, fatigue, stress and other distressing symptoms. Amino acid therapy with l-tyrosine can help to resolve these symptoms by providing the building blocks for production of neurotransmitters and thyroid hormones. Reports suggest l-tyrosine is most effective when used in conjunction with 5-HTP.

Life Extension DL-Phenylalanine -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

Life Extension DL-Phenylalanine -- 500 mg - 100 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
L-phenylalanine is an essential amino acid which can be converted to L-tyrosine by a complex biochemical process which takes place in the liver. L-tyrosine can be converted by neurons in the brain to dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), hormones which are depleted by stress, overwork and certain drugs. By replenishing norepinephrine in the brain, mental energy levels are enhanced and a feeling of contentment often occurs. Because of the liver conversion necessary for L-phenylalanine to have these effects, L-tyrosine is often faster acting. In addition, the conversion step from L-tyrosine to norepinephrine may be enhanced if the cofactors (vitamins B6 and C) are included.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
L-phenylalanine is the starting point for a number of important brain chemicals. It is converted into l-tyrosine and then into the catecholamine nuerotransmitters dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. L-phenylalanine however is also converted into phenylethylamine (PEA) by a different pathway. This chemical is naturally occuring in the brain and is similar to amphetamines in structure and action but without the side-effects of amphetamine drugs. As such, PEA can elevate mood and increase alertness. The D form of phenylalanine is converted to PEA much more readily than the L form which makes DL-phenylalanine supplements much more effective for depression and associated states.

St. John's Wort is one of the leading natural antidepressants. In Germany and other European countries it is commonly prescribed as a first line treatment for depression before antidepressant drugs are used. This herb is believed to work in the same way as monoamine oxidase inhibitors, a class of antidepressant drugs. It blocks the breakdown of important brain chemicals such as serotonin and norepinephrine which are involved with maintaining positive moods. Multiple studies have shown St. Johns Wort to be as effective as pharmaceutical antidepressants for the treatment of depression, espeically mild to moderate forms.

Jarrow Formulas Rhodiola Rosea 500 -- 500 mg - 60 Capsules

Jarrow Formulas Rhodiola Rosea 500 -- 500 mg - 60 Capsules

 

Manufacturer:
Jarrow Formulas Rhodiola extract is made from a gold-colored root found in the mountainous regions of Eastern Siberia. Rhodiola is an adaptogen that has been used for centuries and validated for its beneficial effects on energy production and reduction of fatigue. Though there are greater than 20 species of Rhodiola, only authentic Rhodiola rosea contains Rosavins. The term Rosavins refers to the three active compounds rosavin, rosin, rosarin; salidroside is not a useful marker for Rhodiola rosea.
Jarrow Formulas Rhodiola extract is standardized to contain a minimum 5% Rosavins, the highest potency available.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Rhodiola has been used traditionally to treat symptoms of fatigue and stress. This use is now borne out by modern clinical studies. Small to medium doses of this herb have been shown to increase all the major neurotransmitters known to be involved with mood, pleasure and stress tolerance. As such rhodiola may be of benefit to anyone suffering from environmental illness.

Jarrow Formulas Pantethine -- 450 mg - 60 Softgels

Jarrow Formulas Pantethine -- 450 mg - 60 Softgels

 

Manufacturer:
Coenzyme A Precursor. Supports Lipid Metabolism.

Pantethine is a derivative of Vitamin B5 and the stable disulfate form of pantetheine, which is the active component of Coenzyme A (CoA). Pantethine supports lipid metabolism by it ability to raise levels of CoA, a cofactor involved in several metabolic pathways including carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. CoA combines with acetyl groups to form Acetyl CoA, a participant in energy production.

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
Vitamin B5 is critical to the manufacture of stress-related hormones produced in the adrenal glands. It is often referred to as the "anti-stress" vitamin because it is believed to enhance the activity of the immune system and improve the body's ability to withstand stressful conditions. For this reason it is often used in high doses to help reduce symptoms of tranquilizer withdrawal. Pantethine is the biologically active for of vitamin B5 which means it is much more easily utilized by the body for the uses described. Pantethine in particular is also suggested for use in candida sufferers as it is essential for the detoxification of the principal candida toxin, acetaldehyde.
