• Immunopsychiatry-Immune System Influences on Mental Health Part 1

Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock Part 1: The immune system can affect neurotransmitter function and hormones, as evidenced by new research which seems to point to an exciting theory that inflammation and  immune dysfunction are strongly contributing factors to mental illness. In Part 1 we turn our focus to the biochemistry of receptor sensitivity, the COMT, CBS, MTHFR, CYP450 metabolic enzyme systems and how hormonal and neurotransmitter functions impact the overall sense of well-being for a particular individual. We discuss current pharmaceutical models and theories of treatment for depression/anxiety, dysthymia, bipolar, OCD, PTSD, substance abuse and schizoaffective disorders as well as the wide range of what are known as ‘Shadow Syndromes’, conditions that brush close to the actual diagnosed pathology, but don’t lend themselves completely to the actual diagnosis and treatment.. Continued in Part 2.
