Natural Cures and Remedies for Glaucoma
The third way is to provide more of the raw materials out of which Serotonin is made. Tryptophan can cross the blood-brain barrier and, before its recall, it was used by many practitioners as an alternative to the tricylics and MAO inhibitors. Once inside the brain, tryptophan is changed into 5-HTP and then into Serotonin. An alternative to this is to provide the 5-HTP itself. Since some individuals seem to be unable to easily convert tryptophan into 5-HTP, this is actually a better solution. And, unlike tryptophan, 5-HTP does not have to compete with other amino acids for absorption across the blood-brain barrier. Therefore, 5-HTP is easier to supplement and does not have to be taken in as large a dose as tryptophan.

Amenorrhoea or stoppage of menstrual flow : Stoppage of menstruation is natural during pregnancy and at the menopause, but abnormal at any other time. It is true that some women have very infrequent periods but this seems to be peculiar to their particular type and cannot be termed as stoppage. If , however, the periods have been quite regular for a number of years and then suddenly stop or the cycle becomes frequently interrupted, it denotes a debilitated and devitalised condition of the system, especially of the sex organ. Causes contributing towards this condition are anaemia, worry, grief, fright or other serious emotional disturbances, malformation of the womb, tuberculosis, displacement of womb and debility, especially after a serious illness.
