Years ago, in the middle of my first pregnancy I developed OCD. It was awful. Then, while taking a natural family planning course created by Dr. Hilgers out of Creighton Univ., I was tested by him for beta endorphin deficiency. This was a very detailed test. The blood was drawn under special conditions, flown to Dr. Hilgers at Creighton, and analyzed there using special equipment. They were shocked . My beta endorphin level was so low they couldn't get a measurement. The doc. assigned to my case didn't know how I didn't already have a breakdown. They tried using Trexan to keep what I had of endorphin in my blood stream. It got me very ill. My gynecologist at the time put me on Zoloft. I have been at 200mg. for years now. Does the doctor familiar with this have any information on new methods of treating beta endorphin deficient people? Would appreciate any thoughts. Thank you! K.C.
