Neurotransmitter Testing

The Importance of Neurotransmitters 

Neurotransmitters play a vital role in the body. They are the brain chemicals that help signals travel from one neuron to the next. This means that neurotransmitters regulate a wide range of critical processes such as emotions, pain response, energy levels, and mental performance.

When the neurotransmitters are unable to help the brain communicate with the body’s muscles, organs, and glands, your health is bound to significantly suffer. It is now understood that the majority of common conditions handled in doctors offices around the country today are a result of neurotransmitter dysfunction.

Signs of Neurotransmitter Imbalance

Since neurotransmitters influence such a wide range of functions, the signs of imbalance are wide ranging. Mood disorders, depression, and anxiety are common side effects since neurotransmitters control emotions. Loss of mental focus, loss of energy, and difficulty sleeping are also common signs, as are addiction and dependency. Other symptoms, like hormone imbalances and loss of appetite control, are potentially due to neurotransmitter imbalances as well.

A fully functioning neurotransmitter system can naturally balance its actions, but when inhibited the system begins to either depress or hyperpolarize some of the body’s behaviors.
