Can anyone share their experience if they have tried L- tyrosine for depression and restoring dopamine and neoroperine levels to normal.
I did some research on Dr Ray Sachelian site and other sites but would like to hear anyones experience?
Also, does anyone have any feedback on fasting for depression. I have tried it and have had good results but would like to know if anyone else has tried and had positive results in relation to depression.

Juice fasting definately helped me release depression after my motorcycle accident. The recovery was long (3 years) and it eventually created a very deep depression from being isolated and from the health issues I experienced as a result of becoming increasingly toxic. Pain meds, surgeries, eating poorly, lack of exercise and dealing with medical people continously. Prior to this I was an athletic runner and my whole system was in shock, especially emotionally. After my final leg operation, I went on a 30 day juice fast and in the middle of it I realized I was happy! Not a fake kind of happiness, but deep within my soul...content. Similar to how you feel in childhood when you're in that calm, beautiful state of bliss. I'm truly a believer in water & juice fasting to help lift and completely clear depression in terms of healing the chemical functions of the brain, tissues and body. It's a wonderful healer in general. I also believe in the raw food lifestyle ~ there are particular raw foods that lift depression and green juicing/smoothies work wonders. Follow your intuition and listen to your body of course. If you feel the call to fast, I think this may be your answer. I wish you the very best.

What you never hear about in discussions of the chemical imbalances relating to depression are amino acids. Neurotransmitters, like seratonin, are actually made out of amino acids and proteins. When food is cooked, the amino acids and proteins are damaged and unusable by the body. So until we go raw, we don't get enough protein.
There's more to depression than just protein, but I think the protein thing is so important and no one ever talks about it. Hemp, goji berries and spirulina are wonderful raw protein sources. There are a couple others that I would recommend, but I can't mention them here (vegan site) so if you're interested you can email me at ezo AT comcast DOT net.

Yes not alot addressing depression. Raw is not all strawberries and peaches in Georgia. It has its challenges.
I got tested to neuro/amino/ protein as my naturopath thought something might be out of balance.
It was. So I got supplements and the have made a huge difference. I am so happy sometimes i cant contain myself!!!
Worth a look to see whats off.

Amino acid supplements moved me from three anti-depressants plus a pill for anxiety to . . . ABSOLUTLELY NO MEDS. Two years ago, I got off everything except 1/2 pill at night within a matter of weeks. Finally took myself off the last 1/2 pill two months ago. I'd been taking that particular medicine for about 30 years. Except for some jittery withdrawal symptoms the first few days, and not being able to sleep particularly well for about two weeks, I've had no relapse in depression. And now my sleep is more restful than it's been for years and years.
I now get most of my amino acids from my diet, but still take a few select supplements a once or twice a week just to make sure I stay in balance.
Tyrosine was one of the ones I took when I first started a few years ago. I think it did help jump start me, along with all of the others, but I haven't had the need to take that particular one for a long time now.
