Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitter Testing

The human brain consumes 20% of the oxygen we breathe, and 20% of the calories we consume. It is the primary organ in the human body, controlling virtually everything we do and and the emotions we experience. Hundreds of thousands of chemical reactions occur every second in the brain. Those reactions underlie our thoughts, actions, and behaviors.  These chemical reactions depend on a delicate balance to function optimally.

 

The brain's chemical system is comprised of messengers known as neurotransmitters, which communicate all necessary information within the nervous system and the body. Neurotransmitters are important in controlling your mood, stabilizing your energy, metabolism, sleep, concentration and maintaining overall brain health and function. In fact, most scientists believe that mental health issues result from communication problems between neurons in the brain. Science has established that certain levels of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, can contribute to people experiencing depression.

The following symptoms may indicate neurotransmitter imbalances:

  • Fatigue

  • Anxiousness

  • Depression

  • Low mood and irritability

  • Sleep difficulties

  • Changes in appetite and sudden weight loss/gain

  • Adrenal depletion

  • Poor mental performance, including issues with memory

  • Attention issues and inability to concentrate

  • Inability to enjoy favorite activities

All of our neurotransmitter testing is evidence based and scientifically validated. After testing is performed and imbalances are recognized, we design customized natural support protocols using supplementation that is designed to stimulate the re-balancing of these vital chemical messengers. We have partnered with one of the premier neurotransmitter testing laboratories worldwide to assist in interpreting the complex issues associated with testing and normalizing neurotransmitters without medication or any adverse side effects.

As part of our comprehensive approach, in addition to chemical neurotransmitter testing, we also evaluate the brain's electrical activity through our QEEG Brain Mapping.
