Mood formulas from Dr. Peter Bongiorno: Mood Systems Balance and Neurotransmitter Balance

As a sought-after speaker and consultant in the field of natural, functional and integrative health, Dr. Bongiorno has created unique formulations to help balance mood and neurotransmitters. His latest formulations for mood, created with Douglas Laboratories are used by physicians around the country, and around the world:

Mood Systems Balance†™: combines a truly unique blend of ingredients to support the underlying physiologic processes in the body that are key for healthy mood. These compounds work on blood sugar balance, support the stress system, and help the digestive tract, along with a balancing effect on inflammation. It uses saffron extract, rhodiola, curcumin, chromium and berberine. It is often used with Dr. Peter's Neurotransmitter balance when indicated for more total mood lifting support. This formulation was among the first to use saffron as part of a mood support complex.

Neurotransmitter Balance †™ utilizes several well-researched ingredients known to support mood and emotion by helping support the neurotransmitter system. Its unique blend includes SAMe, macuna, Venetron (a Chinese herb with thousands of years of historical use), 5-HTP, and tyrosine. Individually, these have been researched for their mood benefit. This is the first formula to bring these together into one complex to help the neurotransmitter system create optimal mood balance

Healing Depression - ACBN Review
Dr. Don Feeney of American Clinical Board of Nutrition Reveiw's Dr. Peter's Healing Depression book

May 2011

Dr. Bongiorno gave a fantastic lecture at the latest Council on
Nutrition seminar in Orlando Florida (May 2011). His lecture was
so riveting that I purchased his book.

“Healing Depression” is an authoritative and comprehensive
text that provides information on the underlying factors that
contribute to depression. He then reviews the major
pharmaceutical approaches with the drawbacks of each therapy.
Dr. Bongiorno then goes through the protocols of slowly
removing the patient from these drugs when you and the
Psychiatrist determine that it is safe. He presents soundly
researched natural treatment protocols for the diagnosis and
treatment of depression. He discusses extensively nutrition,
homeopathic, massage, exercise, acupuncture, and many other
modalities for the alternative care physician.

You will find this text as an excellent handbook for day to day
patient care. I highly recommend this text for your office library.

Alternative Medicine Review of Healing Depression book

March 2011 issue

by Dr. Kathleen Head


"In his book, Healing Depression, Dr. Bongiorno provides a very comprehensive look at this often devastating condition, for which the morbidity and even mortality is often underappreciated. As a frequent reviewer, I expected this book to be a comprehensive look at the research on the most often prescribed naturopathic treatments for depression - St. John's wort, SAM-e, and 5-HTP, for example. This book provides that and so much more....

Ultimate Ulcer - Natural remedies can help ease the agony of ulcerative colitis
Dr. Bongiorno interviewed for Energy Times article.

It all happened so quickly. Four years ago, a 32-year-old New Yorker we’ll call “Sandra” was suddenly overcome with fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. At first she thought she had caught an intestinal bug, but after a couple of days she got worse instead of better. “The symptoms were severe,” she says. “I went to a couple of doctors and they didn’t really know what it was. Then I went to a gastroenterologist and had a colonoscopy and they determined that I had ulcerative colitis.” Affecting 50 out of every 100,000 Americans, ulcerative colitis UC mimics the symptoms of food poisoning or flu the first sign that the illness is more serious is when patients find blood in their stool. At that point, tests are needed to rule out bacterial infections or cancer.
