Amino acids. There’s a term you probably haven’t thought about since 10th grade Biology. One of the most fundamental parts of life, amino acids can be linked together in varying sequences to form a vast variety of proteins, and eleven standard amino acids are called “essential” for humans because they cannot be created from other compounds by the human body, and so must be taken in as food. Ten amino acids are called “conditionally essential.” Under mental or physical stress, those ten can become “essential.”  However, despite their role as one of the basic building blocks of our biochemistry, they are often not thought of as having medicinal properties. That may be about to change.


This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes psychiatrist Dr. David Gersten, nationally recognized for his work in Integrative Psychiatry and Nutritional Medicine, to discuss amino acid therapy, something he has championed for 30 years.

According to Dr. Gersten, amino acids are the most important, powerful and significant nutrients we can consume. However, medicine, and society at large, has not yet grasped their power and importance. Our bodies, minus water, are 65% amino acids and 100 percent of all protein is amino acids. Neurotransmitters are made up of amino acids. Some hormones, such as insulin and growth hormone, are 100% amino acids.  Sex hormones and steroids are made up of amino acids and essential fatty acids.  In fact, amino acids govern and participate in every chemical reaction in the body.


In 1982, Dr. Gersten began testing patients for amino acid blood levels. At the time, his intention was to accelerate healing from anxiety, depression, insomnia, and stress – based on the knowledge that every neurotransmitter (save for one) are either made up of amino acids or are amino acids.  Amino acid therapy had been successful in helping these mental problems, but within six months Dr. Gersten realized that the implications were much more vast.  (CLICK ON

Partly due to his own severe case of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), Dr. Gersten diligently explored the world’s healthcare systems – without much luck – until he tested himself for amino acids and put himself on a program of nutritional supplementation. The rest is history in terms of his recovery. His success rate with CFS/ME has been 80% and half of those are cured. Additionally, Dr. Gersten states that, “Scientific research (along with clinical findings) shows that amino acid therapy can help with depression.”  Furthermore, amino acid therapy can assist in the treatment of alcoholism and can contribute positively to wellness and longevity.
