Article claims remission achieved with Serotonin and Dopamine supplements.(Apparently a necro'd topic.)

The hypothesis formulated is that improperly balanced serotonin and dopamine transport, synthesis, and metabolism is a primary defect contributing to the pathogenesis of Crohn’s disease.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3108661/

Honestly I only thought to look into this because a Mom I work with has a son with crohns and said that large amounts of serotonin makes her son flare. If he get's sun he feels better but if he get's too much sun he get's worse.

So I can see the research potentially working but a case study of 1 person isn't enough to draw a conclusion from so I'm hoping someone else knows something.

we have seen this study before on this forum. In addition to taking amino acids l-tyrosine and 5-HTP the patient also took these.

The patient also received the following daily dosing values: 1000 mg of vitamin C, 220 mg of calcium citrate, 75 mg of vitamin B6, 400 μg of folate, 4500 mg L-cysteine, and 400 μg of selenium.
What we also know is that the gut microbiota plays a large role in making serotonin as well. maybe this makes up for some functions that the gut microbes can no longer perform.
