Mental & Physical Health

Information on Neuro Nutritional Therapy,  Functional Medicine & more….

I am always searching the globe for more and better ways to help people recover their health on all levels; mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and energetic.

Although Neuro Nutritional Therapy is not a service I provide, I have included some links below of people who do provide this service if you are interested in contacting them.


A very helpful blog to join is that of psychiatrist, Dr Kelly Brogan. She is board certified in psychiatry, psychosomatic medicine, and integrative holistic medicine, and is specialised in a root-cause resolution approach to psychiatric syndromes and symptoms.


In this blog she writes about the 5 foods that most contribute to mental health problems.


She has also written books and many articles on mental health and how to empower yourself back to the best health – mental and physical – possible.

The reason I like Dr Kelly Brogan is that she has taken this journey herself, and now – she is on a mission.

“Now, in addition to my training as a psychiatrist, I’m also board-certified in integrative and holistic medicine, helping women get healthy and happy – without drugs.”

Amino Acids and why they are important

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein in the body. Amino acids are needed to make neuro-transmitters which are the chemicals which make our brain work, that affects how we feel, how we function, and what we crave. They are non-toxic, produced naturally in the body and there are no side-effects.”


There are some medical conditions which make taking certain amino acids contra-indicated. So always ask your doctor before taking any amino acid supplements to ensure they are not dangerous for you to take.


When we have had stress over long periods of time we tend to use up more than we can remake, and then we start to have symptoms which are then diagnosed as mental illness.

I have known about Julia Ross’s work with addiction recovery since the late 1980’s. Her work and research is amazing and  simple.

She and hundreds of neuro-nutrient practitioners trained by Julia have had great success helping all sorts of problems by testing for  deficiencies in amino acid levels and adjusting for deficits or overages.

We crave foods and substances that mimic the effects of the amino acids and neurotransmitters we are deficient in.

Julia Ross found that supplementing her patients with amino acids when they were coming off drugs and alcohol or eating disorders increased there successful recoveries up to 80-90% success rates up from 5-10%.


The Amino Acids You Might Need



The Consultation Process


There are a number of questionnaires to complete as step one and then later testing a variety of amino acids and developing a plan of taking them for 12 weeks.

Dr Trudy Scott was trained in amino acid therapy by Julia Ross many years ago and I have loaded an interview with her here for you to learn more. It is 75 minutes but very educational and perhaps for some of you, just hearing this information will start a healing Journey for you on this cellular level.

Dr Trudy Scott is available for Skype consultations for amino acid therapy

Here is a link to the “find a therapist”page:

There is only one therapist in Australia currently offering the amino acid therapy developed by Julia Ross, but you can have Skype or phone consultations with anyone else on the find a practitioner list which work just as well as seeing someone in person.:
