How Aluminum Affects Neurological Health:
- Reduces nervous sytem activity by blocking the action potential of nerve cells
- Inhibits enzymes in the brain
- Inhibits the uptake of Dopamine, Noradrenaline (Norepinephrine), and Serotonin (5-HTP) by nerve cells
When the “action potential” is blocked, neurons (nerve cells) do not “fire” correctly. This impacts their ability to transmit messages from one cell to another and between different areas of the brain. Enzymes are catalysts that make things happen. Again, if enzymes are inhibited, things don’t happen the way they’re supposed to. Dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin (5-HTP) are neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) that move between one neuron and another, and are essential for things like attention, impulse control, mood regulation, sleep and wake cycles, hunger and satiety, control of voluntary and involuntary movement, and the fight-or-flight response. When the uptake of these neurotransmitters is inhibited, all kinds of things can (and do) go wrong. Each of the physiological effects listed above leads to ineffective processing of information in the brain; including sensory information such as auditory and visual input; hence, auditory processing disorder, visual processing disorder, and sensory integration dysfunction.
How Aluminum Affects Behavioral Health:
- Memory Loss
-Loss of Coordination
- Confusion and Disorientation
In the digestive system aluminum causes reduction of intestinal activity and colic (pain in the gut).
Symptoms of Aluminum Toxicity:
~Early Toxicity: Flatulence, headaches, colic, dryness of skin and mucous membranes, tendency for colds, burning pain in the head relieved by food, heartburn, aversion to meat
