A little more on Sandyk that I came across. He was a very young man (b. 1951). The following is from a health newsletter about 2004-
"can't help but think that mood and other cognitive factors might have improved in the Neurology study if the sessions had been two or more times each week instead of only one, because previous research has clearly shown that exercise can help relieve depression.
A New York doctor, Dr Reuven Sandyk, believes that many multiple sclerosis (MS) problems may be associated with calcification of the pineal gland, which contains the brain's highest concentration of serotonin, the neurotransmitter that helps regulate our sense of wellbeing. Dr. Sandyk theorises that the pineal calcification may contribute to multiple sclerosis symptoms such as fatigue, depression, sleep disorders and carbohydrate craving.
In addition to exercise, Dr. Sandyk recommends these natural ways to prompt the body to produce more serotonin:
Try to spend a few minutes in the sun each day. Even twenty minutes may make a big difference.
Increase your intake of food sources of L-tryptophan, an essential amino acid that is a precursor of serotonin. These foods include sunflower seeds, bananas, turkey, nuts and corn.
Supplements that may promote the production of serotonin include biotin, magnesium, and vitamins B-1, B- 3, B-6 and B-12."
I don't know about you but I would take him over any neuro that I have yet to deal with.
