What is the Walsh Protocol?
The Walsh Protocol is a powerful and natural approach to improving mental health disorders using advanced nutrient therapy. The main focus of this protocol is to identify the biochemical imbalances that affect neurotransmitter activity in the brain through testing of key lab markers and correcting those imbalances through advanced nutrient therapy (vitamins, minerals and amino acids).
This protocol was developed by William Walsh, PhD, FACN and his colleagues based on studying over 30,000 patients with depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, schizophrenia, autism, bipolar disorder, and behavior problems. While everyone has unique biochemically, they saw common factors impacting mental health, such as:
Fatty Acid Imbalance
In his extensive research and book, Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain, Dr. Walsh discusses the science-based nutrient therapy method that can be used to help people diagnosed with mental disorders. The Walsh Protocol assumes that many mental illnesses stem from imbalances inside the body which can cause extreme fluctuations in mood, behavior, focus, and cognition.
Each of us has innate biochemical factors which influence our personality, behavior, mental health, immune function, allergic tendencies, etc. Imbalances in these biochemicals can put us at risk for many different types of physical and mental health conditions. The connection between nutrition and physical illness has been known for sometime, but there’s is also a significant relationship between nutrition and mental health.
I was fortunate enough to be trained by Dr. Walsh and his team in April of 2023 and have incorporated this amazing protocol into my services and am excited to help as many people as I can.
If you or your child is struggling with mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavior issues, anger, frustration or lack of motivation we can help you identify the nutrient imbalances within your unique body using the Walsh protocol and help you restore those imbalances through advanced nutrient therapy.
