Amino Acid Therapy

Amino acid therapy is a term used to describe the use of supplemental amino acids to help balance brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and other aspects of a patient’s physiology. These serve as especially useful alternatives for patients who cannot tolerate or choose not to use prescription medications for stress, anxiety, depression, and/or pain. The amino acids used are naturally found in the body, and produce very few, if any, unwanted side effects compared to pharmaceutical drugs.

Dr. Bresler has been studying, researching, and teaching about amino acid therapy since conducting his doctoral dissertation research at UCLA in 1972, and he frequently recommends various amino acid supplements to help patients undergoing chronic pain, stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia and/or post-traumatic stress.
