What Is the Walsh Protocol?
Biochemistry is important for understanding chemical processes that occur within organisms. In other words, it’s the study of the ways your brain and body can be influenced through chemical reactions inside your body. And at Newbridge, we adhere to this science-based understanding as we diagnose and recommend treatment.
According to Dr. William J. Walsh and his colleagues, our biochemistry influences the following elements:
- Mental wellbeing
- Immune function
- Allergic tendencies
Though it can sometimes be easier to understand the connection between nutrition and physical illness, there’s also a significant relationship between nutrition and mental health.
This notion led to the development of the Walsh Protocol, developed by Dr. Walsh. In his extensive research and book, Nutrient Power: Heal Your Biochemistry and Heal Your Brain, he discusses the science-based nutrient therapy system that can be used to help people diagnosed with mental disorders.
At its core, 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.
The Walsh Protocol incorporates advanced nutrient therapy as an alternative treatment approach, providing a natural method to correct the imbalances affecting neurotransmitter activity.
Clinically, it’s important to identify what nutrients an individual may be deficient in, and from there, design a treatment plan aimed at normalizing brain chemistry. A major advantage of advanced nutrient therapy is the mitigation of serious side effects associated with psychiatric medications.
