DINET member name: Skydersaur Skyler's hometown: Dallas Fort Worth, TX Diagnosis: Inappropriate sinus tachycardia, autonomic dysfunction and most recently ME/CFS Blog: https://spoiledbrats.org In Skyler's words..... I started blogging about natural health and wellness a few months ago after I married a very technologically talented man. We have both relied on natural remedies to go along with our prescribed medications and decided we should be sharing our healing with others!

Anyone else have this issue?
  5. I was just reading the other day on a post regarding hormones, etc...... and i read something that issie had written about aspartame and how it works in the body/brain and then i was reading how it (phenylalanine) is a precursor for tyrosine, the monoamine signaling molecules dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (adrenaline). And also L-Phenylalanine is biologically converted into L-tyrosine, another one of the DNA-encoded amino acids. L-tyrosine in turn is converted into L-DOPA, which is further converted into dopamine, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and epinephrine (a
