Neurotransmitter imbalances can cause or contribute to many different types of mental and physical health concerns like anxiety, depression, bipolar spectrum disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and migraine headaches to name a few. Typically, medication and supplementation is prescribed to alter neurotransmitters without any form of testing. However, in the last number of years an increasing body of research has shown that testing for neurotransmitters can lead to a more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment.
Neurotransmitters are evaluated from a urine sample you collect at your own home. The sample is sent to a lab where it is analyzed for neurotransmitters like dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, and GABA. With the information from the test we are able to prescribe a course of treatment usually consisting of natural supplementation to help your body produce a healthy balance of neurotransmitters.
