> HI,
> I do not know about Braverman's theories, will have to read up on it! But is there a way someone can tell me a quick bottom line about his work and Lamictal--who it helps, at what doses and how long to work?? I would appreciate it. Lamictal is currently in my med program, at 200mg, but I keep thinking it is not doing anything; but maybe the dose is too low/it has not been long enough.....


Hi Banga,
Dr. Braverman has a book out called "Edge Effect". He basically does all kinds of testing (including questionnaire) to determine what neurotransmitters you are low on and which one is your dominant "nature". Based on his findings, he adds meds and supplements. He also uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation, CES. (I've also seen it called cranial electrical stimulation. His goal is to get people off of medications as soon as possible and onto supplements but he recognizes that in some cases people need to be on certain meds forever. In this case, he knew that the person involved needed Lamictal. He doesn't claim it's the answer for everyone.

There's a detailed, recent archived thread between Franco Neuro and Elroy about Dr. Braverman and his treatment if you want to do a search.
