The Stress, Depression/Hinz Protocol

Nutrition and Counseling 

The high levels of stress and depression have been a problem for years but uncertainty and confusion of today's world is contributing to the unprecedented rise of stress related depression.

In general little stress is good  but it’s been proven over and over that too much stress is a killer. These days more then ever before we all have been experiencing too much stress and constant stress may lead to major depression. Stress, whether chronic, such as taking care of a loved one with Parkinson's, or acute, such as losing a job or the death of a loved one can lead to major depression. Both types of stress lead to over-activity of the body's stress-response mechanism and depletion of Neurotransmitters which is devastating to the neurological system.


Depletion and decrease in neurotransmitter activity is a major risk factor for depression. Depression affects each person in different ways. For some people, depression symptoms are so severe that it is obvious something is not right. Others feel miserable or unhappy without really knowing why.

Amino-Acid Nutritional Therapy is a science based program developed by Dr. Marty Hinz MD (Hinz Protocol). In this program we adjust neurotransmitters using amino acid-based nutritional supplements. Amino acids are the building blocks of specific proteins that are made into neurotransmitters.

For individuals suffering from symptoms of Depression the amount of neurotransmitters must be increased to high levels for the brain’s optimal function and to stop the destruction of the brain cells. We all have different needs and imbalances in the neurotransmitters level so  for the program to be effective it has to be designed specifically for each individual, guided by trained health professional  and laboratory testing.

Please take a moment to see if any of these symptoms apply to you.
