If so, what is your experience with people who have tried

The key to health is to maintain the proper balance between
serotonin and dopamine. Pumping more dopamine into the body
can create a persistent imbalance that aggravates the
symptoms. Amino acid therapy appears helps to balance the
I have planned interviews with the doctors using this approach

his therapy in the new future.
I invite anyone with personal experiences using the clinic’s
protocol to tell us more about your experience by posting
