Walsh Research Institute Protocol
Over the years that I have been practicing alternative/complementary medicine I have found the treatment of anxiety one of the more challenging health condition to treat. Homeopathy and acupuncture helped many patients. However, there seemed to be about 30% of the patients suffering from this debilitating illness whom I was unable to find the therapeutic key that would release them from their suffering.
It was in 2019 while at an ozone therapy conference that I overhead another physician recommend to another that he go study at the Walsh institute if he wants to treat emotional illness like anxiety, depression, and insomnia. I made a mental note and that evening found that the course was being offered in the Chicago area and signed up for it.
I found that Dr. Walsh was a humble man that spent his whole life researching solutions for mental illness. What I learned at his seminar was life-changing for my practice but more importantly for many of my patients.
What Dr. Walsh has found after treating 1,000’s of patients is that among other things an excess of copper has a tendency to cause a whole host of mental and emotional symptoms.
Too much copper pushes the conversion of dopamine into norepinephrine which can short-circuit thought processes in the brain, and lead to anxiety, brain fog, depression, hyperactivity, nervousness, or irritability. Imbalances in these important neurotransmitters have been associated with ADHD, behavior disorders, depression, and violent behavior.
Based on Dr. William Walsh’s studies of 2,800 depressed patients, copper overload tends to be more common in women (96% of subjects) and are more likely to suffer from high anxiety, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia or postpartum depression in their childbearing years. A large study by William Walsh and John Crayton reported that depressed women with a history of postpartum depression have significantly elevated serum copper when compared to both non-depressed women.
Another outcome study revealed that 75% of young males with ADD, episodic rage disorder, hyperactivity, destructive, and/or assaultive behaviors exhibitor exhibited elevated copper/zinc ratios. Separate outcome studies indicated significant improvements in behavior after normalization of Cu/Zn ratios.
In addition, to treating copper excess Dr.Walsh has also developed a program for treating, undermethylation, overmthylation, and pyrrole excess.
