Questions related to Functional Medicine
I am a functional medicine physician utilizing a protocol for depression and all mood disorders that looks at key markers that reflect neurotransmitter activity. Based on extensive research, as many as 95% of persons with mood disorders are experiencing one or more of 5 major biotypes; these nutrient conditions are highly responsive to proper supplementation. Markers tell us about nutrient status, oxidative stress and methylation. Methylation with respect to SERT and DERT is highly useful as it impacts levels of serotonin and dopamine activity. Overmethylators are high in these nuerotransmitters. Undermethylators are low. This is because their reuptake enzymes are either over or under active.

Yang, Yin, and Qi concepts are simple yet profound explanations of fundamental polarity concepts (+/-) and the resulting magnetic fields that are created when these opposing forces are brought together.
Traditional medical systems had many diverse ways to talk and discuss these phenomena, but had no way to measure the subtle and diverse changes.
Is the lack of research and general inquiry into establishing a dataset on the human bio-field mostly due to poor technological means? Lack of interest?
Are there any researchers currently engaged in these types of measurements?
