Traumatic Stress and Rebalancing Brain Nutrition

Since 2001, over 1.6 million troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, and millions more soldiers were sent to fight our wars and operations of the 20th century (1).

With all the movies about war, still many of us are surprised that more soldiers have committed suicide in Afghanistan than have been killed in combat.

The psychological damage cannot be measured. Soldiers continue to struggle with the health and emotional illnesses of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder long after the rest of us have forgotten we even had a war.

Modern, mind-altering medications, of course, still are the most common treatment for emotional conditions, both inside and outside of the military.

The newer designer chemicals are commonly used in an effort to calm anxieties and reduce depression associated with symptoms of PTSD. Nevertheless, there is insufficient evidence to claim any of them is effective (3).

Furthermore, a key contributor to the ongoing problem seems to be the trend to over-medicate, over-vaccinate, and over-expose troops to toxic chemicals. Burn pits, agent orange, and DU munitions are military hazards known even to the general public.

What is now becoming apparent to researchers is that the increasing over-medication of soldiers may be as much a cause of on-going emotional stress as a solution.

Homecoming for Paul and Ethan

Homecoming for Paul and Ethan

“Since 2008 after my first tour in the mountains of Afghanistan I have had severe diagnosable sleep problems and anxiety issues (you can use tension if you want). I have searched for and tried various methods and even medications to assist me in dealing with these concerns. However, nothing seemed to work, until I tried LIDTKE's Combat Stress. The first time I took the supplement was the first night in years I could sleep through the night. The following day I felt refreshed and relaxed, almost as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders.

“After spending a total of 18 months in a combat zone I can tell you from experience that clarity and peace of mind are two things you feel you will never have again. But with supplements (and my beautiful wife) I feel that I have taken back the parts of me I had lost so many years ago.

Neurotransmitters

To further understand our body’s response to traumatic events, let’s examine the fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and its possible relationship to symptoms of PTSD.

When you need to make a sudden decision, your body releases neurotransmitters (or chemical messengers) such as adrenaline and norepinephrine, that are responsible for your survival response.

Your sympathetic nervous system takes charge.

Without having to think about it, your body started pumping massive amounts of adrenaline through your blood. This speeds up breathing to get more oxygen to your blood - increases heart rate and blood pressure to get the oxygenated blood to your muscles as fast as possible - and dilates your pupils to help you see and identify the challenge.

When you are not in survival mode, your body down-regulates the sympathetic nervous system and switches to the parasympathetic system. This is the system that controls rest, relaxation and digestion - those lower priority things your body does when you are lounging around or doing routine tasks. This is the system fueled mainly by serotonin.

Serotonin often times is referred to as our “happy” neurotransmitter, as it has major benefits to mood regulation, appetite control, alertness and restful sleep.

Neurotransmitter balance

One consequence of traumatic stress seems to be that the two different groups of neurotransmitters that fuel our nervous system get out of balance.

As a Yale University journal review states: An imbalance in [nor-adrenaline], [adrenaline], and [serotonin] can result in “symptoms of PTSD, including hyper-vigilance, exaggerated startle, irritability, impulsivity, aggression, intrusive memories, depressed mood...” This we already know: we need to re-balance (4).

You probably have heard of serotonin because many of the designer chemicals that are being prescribed today are designed to fool your body into thinking it has more serotonin than it really does.

The nutritional approach, on the other hand, is to support the parasympathetic system by feeding the brain. Since neurotransmitters are made of specific amino acids, neurotransmitter deficiencies can potentially be corrected by supplementing your diet with the right amino acids. The main parasympathetic pathway, for example, is fed by:

L-Tryptophan > 5HTP > Serotonin > Melatonin

As the diagram suggests, Serotonin (and Melatonin, the sleep hormone) is readily produced in your nerves as you need it... with a single amino acid, Tryptophan. The fact is, fooling your body with inappropriate chemicals cannot correct a neurotransmitter imbalance.

A Nutritional Response

Combat Stress is the result of extensive research into the nutrients that produce and sustain serotonin levels, including nutritional cofactors that science and experience have shown work together to get the best results.
