My goals with my recent articles on exploring the use of NAC (N-acetylcysteine) for mental health are several:
- to demonstrate that various natural modalities can be used in conjunction with conventional approaches to assist those with stigmatizing mental illnesses
- to help bridge the gap between integrative, conventional, and alternative practitioners through using language that is common among all of them, biochemistry.
- to educate and empower the public on the topic of mental health
I know that there are many factors linked to how the brain functions and that no one intervention can be a “cure-all.” Still, it is my hope that all providers in the area of mental health will aim to put their differences aside and work to integrate psychology, physiology, biochemistry, and mind-body medicine more richly. In this way, patients can benefit from a wide array of choices as their health providers unite as a team.
Now that I’ve completed my research with NAC, I begin to explore more on how the brain functions. This is in order to provide a basis for my upcoming review on how essential oils impact brain signaling, aka neurotransmitters.
Please see my website for the first article in this series, “A Primer To: How the Ancient Medicine of Essential Oils Can “Hack” the Modern Brain’s Biochemistry,” to learn more.
