The Mental M.A.P.™
"It's not just a test. It's an experience!" ~ Brendan Vermeire
Get to the root of your Mental Health Struggles with the Mental M.A.P.™
The Mental M.A.P.™ helps elucidate the root causes of mental health dysfunction. Mental Illnesses have a common underlying theme: Microglial Cell Activation and Dysfunction, Neuroinflammation, Blood Brain Barrier Permeability, Excitotoxicity, Supressed Neurotrophic Activity, Impaired Synaptic Protein Density, & Neurotransmitter Dysrgegulation.
"Mental Illness is largely an epigenetic phenomenon driven by oxidative stress and inflammation." ~ Brendan Vermeire
Microglial Cells are the primary immune cells of the Central Nervous System!
They are our first line of defense in the brain.
They regulate the inflammatory and excitotoxic response when activated.
They co-regulate Neuroplasticity.
When chronically activated, Microglial Cells can cause neurodegeneration in the brain or “Microglial Activation Syndrome”.
