& Neurotransmitter Testing
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that regulate many physical and emotional processes including movement, stress response, cognition, emotions, energy, cravings, pain and more. Functioning primarily in the central nervous system (CNS), neurotransmitters facilitate communication between the brain and the body's glands, organs and muscles.
How can I know what my neurotransmitter levels are?
Testing!! Neurotransmitter imbalances can be easily identified with a single, noninvasive urine sample. Testing provides a tool to understand each patient's specific neuroendocrine imbalances, which can be corrected with targeted nutritional therapy, diet, and lifestyle interventions.
Inadequate neurotransmitter function disrupts signals to target tissues and has a profound influence on overall health and well-being. In fact, imbalances in certain neurotransmitters are associated with many of the prevalent symptoms and conditions seen in doctors' offices today including:
When functioning properly, the neurotransmission system has natural checks and balances in the form of excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. Though there are many neurotransmitters found in the body, there are six in particular that play significant roles in primary symptomatic conditions.
