Mental Health Protocol




Depression and anxiety due to heavy metal load?

Brain fog and allergies due to mold exposure?

Depression due to undermethylation, folate deficiency?

Anxiety due to high levels of estrogens and copper overload?


Studies on thousands of individuals with  mental health issues have revealed a number of biochemical imbalances that can significantly contribute to these conditions. These imbalances may be rooted in each individual’s genetics and nutrition and they directly affect brain neurotransmitter synthesis and availability. Comprehensive medical history and advanced laboratory testing  helps identify imbalances, and formulate personalized diet and supplement program to help optimize biochemical and neurotransmitter balance.

Walsh Protocol

Based on Walsh Protocol was developed by William Walsh Ph.D that has studied over 30,000 cases of autism, depression, anxiety, ADD, and behavior problems. In his book, Nutrient Power he presents science-based nutrient therapy for mental health that help millions of people. The scientific advances was based on testing chemical factors in blood, urine to identify nutritional imbalances in people diagnosed with ADDH/ADD, autism, depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer. After 30 years of research experience he developed protocols nutrition based.


Testing for biochemical imbalances in the body that make a person more prone to addiction. Lab testing and blood work to identifies biochemical imbalances such as hormone levels, neurotransmitters, amino acids and nutrient deficiencies while checking for the presence of heavy metals and toxicities.

Comparing the symptoms that were formed during addiction to identify which exactly biochemical imbalances are triggering the addictive state, and to begin to restore the biochemistry of the body. Proper nutrition can often be the last piece of the puzzle that can make biochemical restoration successful for sobriety.


Why Kryptopyroles? Kryptopyroles in urine were found elevated in mental health disorders. Elevated level of kryptopyroles is related to oxidative stress.

Why testing for Zinc, Copper, Ceruloplasmin and histamine?  Zinc and Copper need to be in right ratio and when Copper is elevated in cause low Zinc levels. Copper overload is associated with increased mental health disorders and cancer risk.

Why methylation and environmental toxins testing? Methylation influences detoxification and nutrient absorption along with approaches to treatment.

Detoxification is done with methylation therapies, chelation, NRF2, Glutathione.  Nutrient imbalances can alter gene expression which can lead to neurotransmitters dysregulation.

Emotional and mental related symptoms found to be associated:


  • Autoimmunity & Inflammation
  • Histamine Intolerance
  • Mast Cell Activation
  • Mold toxicity
  • Metal toxicity
  • Copper Overload or Copper deficiency
  • Zinc deficiency
  • Methylation Imbalances
  • Pyroluria
  • Dysbiosis
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Neurotransmitters imbalances
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Dementia
  • ADHD
Dr. El approach: Address nutritional deficiency, copper overload, methylation disorders, malabsorption, toxic metal overload, pyrrole disorders, bad bacteria overgrown, neurotransmitters and hormonal dysbalance, mold overload commonly found in mental disorders.

Holistic Framework for mental health: Hypnosis


  • Helps reduce anxiety
  • Create emotional awareness
  • Healing traumas
  • Develop self compassion and mindfulness
  • Building internal balance
  • Achieve self- actualization
  • Improve emotional well-being
