Oh believe me i understand your skepticism completely. The natural optimism i was born with was pummeled out of me by the medical community a long time ago. I debated for 6 months after i read this guy's book whether i should go see him or not. I've been to too many doctors who supposedly had all the answers to get my hopes up now. All they left me with was an empty bank account and a brain that was more fried than ever.

The thing is I can't just keep popping medications haphazardly with no method to the madness. I've had urine and blood neurotransmitter levels tested, but nobody seems to know how to interpret them.

I had a feeling that low dopamine and/or norepinephrine was at the root of my problem before i had the "brain mapping" done. So maybe the fact that it came back supporting my "theory" bolstered my confidence in it a little. But you are right...there is precious little info. out there about the efficacy of this type of testing. It makes sense in theory, but so do a lot of otherwise ridiculous ideas.

I guess the only way to find out is to start popping a dopamine friendly med. (Wellbutrin) and see if it helps.
