Chronic infections, such as Lyme disease, can disrupt our neurochemistry, the biochemical activity occurring in our nervous system that regulates our cognition, mood, and mental health. Neurotransmitters, chemical messengers of the body that transmit signals from nerve cells to target cells, control neurochemistry. When the delicate neurochemistry of our bodies is disrupted, symptoms such as anxiety, depression, brain fog, mood swings, irritability, and reduced stress tolerance can occur. These are, unfortunately, common symptoms amongst those with Lyme disease. Read on to learn about the nutritional factors that can help balance your neurochemistry, supporting your mental and emotional wellbeing as you recover from Lyme disease.
