What neurotransmitters are involved in depression?Brain studies reveal connections between neurochemical imbalances within the brain and predispositions to addictions to medications, alcohol, and other drugs.

Why does this matter?

When the source of a problem is identified, one can more easily take the right corrective steps.  Dr. Von Stieff gives clear explanations of the latest brain studies, thereby making the corrective steps more attainable.

Different types of neurochemical imbalances, according to brain studies, lead to different kinds of addictions. For example, an imbalance in GABA neurochemicals can often lead to addictions to benzodiazepines and/or alcohol. There are non-addictive medications that can correct these imbalances (such as those in the GABA neurochemicals) in a safe manner, and ameliorate cravings.

Learn more about the latest brain studies and what they disclose about neurochemical imbalances and successful ways to battle addictions in Dr. Von Stieff’s book, Brain in Balance: Understanding the Genetic and Neurochemistry behind Addiction and Sobriety.
