Dopamine levels.

I just read the latest of Sharon's sessions and in it I found an interesting point about a natural chemical in the brain called "dopamine".

My question, perhaps to the author, or perhaps to "Dr. Balis," would be: is what is said in this session about dopamine accurate? Is there really only a set amount of dopamine in a person that, once depleted, renders a person incapable of experiencing pleasure?

I find this curious. It makes me wonder if someone who is optimistic and happy 24 hours a day has a little too much dopamine in their diet, and that they'll eventually crash and burn into an immense abyss of depression and dismay.

Does anyone have real facts about this chemical or can the author name the source of this study?



PS ---As for the session itself, I particularly found the chef analogy to be fascinating and...dead on.
