Dr. Kokayi interviews Dr. Eileen Marie Wright, of Neuroscience Inc,. on the importance of laboratory work that is looking to establish guidelines for corrective measures that can be taken with nutrients and phyto nutrients. Dr. Wright is a physician with a conventional board certification in emergency medicine but she also has extensive training in metabolic and nutritional medicine, hormone therapies, Ayurvedic medicine as well as many other alternative and complementary modalities. The interplay of the immune, endocrine and nervous systems is discussed with a new look at their functional interaction. Although from a conventional perspective each of these systems is observed independently the interplay that their biochemical substrates can have on each other is being brought out more clearly thru the work of Neuroscience Inc. This cutting edge lab is able to provide doctors with functional measurements of somatic signals like cytokines which help to create an interplay between these systems which were previously looked at separately. The same cytokines my affect immunity as much as they do psychological states. More information on Neuroscience Inc. can be found at www.neurorelief.com.
