Trip therapy: Neurotransmitters and nutrition


The neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers of the brain. The neurotransmitters determine the paths of impulse conduction through the neurons and thus how we think and what our mood is. Is there a shortage of certain neurotransmitters? Then the communication in the brain is different and (psychological) problems can arise.

Neurotransmitters through food and supplements

The building blocks of various neurotransmitters can be obtained from food. When processing food, we are primarily dependent on our intestinal flora. Without the right bacteria and fungi, we simply cannot convert the food in the right proportions into substances usable for us. The first step is therefore to ensure that the right bacteria are present in the intestines. This is especially important after antibiotics and food poisoning.

Step 1

Getting the right probiotics. When purchasing probiotics, it is advisable to buy one that has the main strains of bacteria involved in pre-digesting our food. The best I've found is this one:

Step 2

Make sure that neurotransmitters enter the brain cells more easily and connect more easily with the receptors by getting the right omega 3. We are talking about DHA and EPA. The best sources are fresh oily fish or supplements such as krill, fish or algae oil. Krill oil works a bit better than fish oil and algae oil is vegetarian/vegan.

Step 3

Provide sufficient vitamin B (1,2,3,6 and 12), vitamin C, vitamin D (sunlight), magnesium, potassium, calcium, copper and iron through food or supplements. These excipients ensure the correct conversion of food into neurotransmitters. With a varied diet you can get all these excipients. Supplementing with a good multivitamin is possible, but is not always necessary.

Stap 4

In general, most neurotransmitters are made from amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. A temporary protein-rich diet can therefore help to prevent neurotransmitter deficiency.

Eat the following foods more often as basic raw materials for the neurotransmitters. Take possible allergens into account and ensure animal-friendly and healthy products for animal foods.

Neurotramitter test

We have our customers who opt for trip therapy complete an intake and neurotransmitter test. Based on the questions, we get an indication of whether there is a shortage of certain neurotransmitters. Even before the psychedelic session we will balance the neurotransmitters through nutrition and supplement advice so that the psychedelic session has even more effect.

The relationship between nutrition and how we feel is stronger than most people think. The more we learn about health, the better we can act against depression, anxiety and other psychological or physical complaints. Also read our other blog posts about nutrition and (mental) health.
