The Brain is Our Most Important OrganOf all the conditions afflicting us these days perhaps the most common and most insidious is those that affect our brain and our mind. The brain is the most important organ in the body. It plays a primary role in controlling all other body functions. Loss of brain function can dramatically effect the quality of our lives.
The most common disorders of the brain are Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. In addition to these is the gradual loss of memory that many experience as they age. Add to this the chronic fatigue, moodiness and depression that are so common and you can see how pervasive disorders of brain chemistry are. The GOOD NEWS is that many of these conditions are caused by imbalances in brain chemistry. Brain chemistry can be tested and in many cases treated successfully and without resorting to drugs!.
In addition to conditions affecting brain chemistry are conditions that affect the glands. The most common glandular disorders are those affecting the adrenal glands, thyroid and pituitary. An imbalance in any of these glands can lead to chronic fatigue, weight gain, depression, moodiness, insomnia and many more.
We are blessed to be able to test and treat many of these conditions.Testing

Mood disorders, as classified by the medical world, are rampant. In fact if you look at the astonishing number of people who are currently on mood altering drugs you would think it is an epidemic. Not only adults but the incredible widespread use of Prozac and Ritalin on our youth would have you believe that we have developed inherited deficiency of these drugs - really rather amazing. Is it possible that humans have suddenly developed a need for a new food group; antidepressants?
Mood - moods are greatly related the brain neuro-chemistry. Deficiencies or imbalances in the main neuro-chemical pathways can lead to a host of mood related problems.
Energy and Fatigue
The second area where we find the western approach taking a symptomatic turn is in the area of energy and fatigue. Based on the widespread use of coffee, teas and sugar, loss of energy is a major modern complaint. For awhile it seems to work to use stimulants to increase our feeling of energy but over time this approach causes the body to run down. Over time we still have the fatigue and we need to use more and stronger stimulants to get the same benefit.
A Personal Note
Hi, I wanted to make a personal comment about this section. Mood, energy and brain function so dramatically effects the quality of our life that I have continued to make it one of my specialties. The tests that are available below represent the state-of-the-art and are available at a reasonable cost. If you are affected by low or unreliable energy or if mood, concentration or sleep are challenges for you I highly suggest these tests and the recommended therapies. Testing is easy. You are sent a test kit. Simply fill out the forms, take a sample and drop it in the mail. Once the test results are available we will contact you to set up a consultation (in office or phone). During the consultation we will gather more information, discuss your test results and make treatment suggestions.
Not Certain What To Do Next?
If you are uncertain as to which products or programs to use or which tests to take; or, if you would like additional help:
- Contact us with a brief question.
- Arrange a phone consultation with Dr. Forrest.
