Topic: Severe Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders Caused by Gastrointestinal Overgrowth of Clostridia Bacteria: Mechanism and Treatment by William Shaw PhD
The Once and Future Cure:Past Present and Future of Medicine - Nashville, TN - March 14-16, 2014
Although dysbiosis or abnormal microbial overgrowth of the gastrointestinal tract has long been suspected of causing psychiatric disorders, the exact mechanism was unknown. For the first time, William Shaw Ph.D. presents convincing evidence that certain Clostridia bacteria produce phenolic metabolites that dramatically alter the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine, leading to profound dopamine excess and severe depletion of norepinephrine and epinephrine in the brain, peripheral sympathetic nervous system and adrenal glands. Furthermore, the excess dopamine leads to oxidative stress that can result in permanent damage to the brain,sympathetic nervous system, and adrenal glands if not treated. He will present a variety of case studies of patients with autism, depression, schizophrenia, and other neuropsychiatric disorder showing the usefulness of urine organic acid testing in the diagnosis and treatment of these disorders.
