Neurotransmitter Level Testing

An approach to analyzing and treating brain chemical imbalances


What are neurotransmitters?

Neurotransmitters are various chemicals that are required by the nervous system to relay signals between neurons (nerve cells) allowing for optimal communication between the multitude of cells within the brain itself and the entire nervous system as a whole. This is an extremely complex process requiring an adequate supply of these specialized chemicals (neurotransmitters) and their respective bio-chemical building blocks (precursors) to function properly.

Neurotransmitters are constructed in the body from amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), vitamins and mineral co-factors. When sufficient supplies of these amino acids and nutritional co-factors are lacking, neurotransmitter depletion, leading to insufficient or unbalanced communication between neurons (neurotransmission) with adverse systemic results can be expected.

Neurotransmitter imbalances have been linked to:

  • Attention issues (lack of focus and motivation, poor concentration, and ADD)
  • Learning difficulties and development delays (children & adults)
  • Hyperactivity and ADHD for both children and adults
  • Sleeping problems (fatigue, problems falling asleep, tossing and turning, etc.)
  • Menopause-related issues (hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats)
  • PMS and birth control-related issues (mood swings, aggressiveness, irritability, sadness, lack of libido)
  • Weight issues and appetite control (cravings, overwhelming hunger, etc.)
  • Depression (sadness, lack of motivation, mood swings, etc.)
  • Migraine headaches
  • Anxiety (irritability, nervousness, obsessive-compulsive, insecurity, racing thoughts, restlessness)
  • Libido (lack of sex drive for women and men, orgasm issues, erectile dysfunction, etc.)

Frequency of neurotransmitter depletion

Approximately 84% of the U.S. population has some degree of neurotransmitter deficiency or imbalance. Consider the high incidence of neurotransmitter-related disease in the U.S.:

  • Depression
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Hypertension
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraine
  • Obesity/Appetite control
  • PMS

Additionally, many apparently dissimilar diseases have common components of an underlying neurotransmitter deficiency and are addressed with similar therapies.

Why NeuroScience?

NeuroScience is the world leader in the assessment of neurotransmitters. The NeuroScience approach addresses the above symptoms and offers relief to at least 90% of patients being treated with their individualized programs. Their experience with close to 100,000 patients has contributed to the development of successful treatment programs for the conditions listed above.

The NeuroScience approach is based on a baseline measurement of your neurotransmitter and/or hormone levels. The initial testing of your levels from a urine or saliva sample constitutes your baseline.

The greatest number of neurotransmitters and hormones can be tested for the most complete assessment of your health. NeuroScience can measure 13 different neurotransmitters and 11 different hormones and their high-tech research and development department is developing more. The baseline sample will help determine if your condition is neurotransmitter-related and what the optimal treatment is for addressing your condition(s).

Your healthcare provider is a trained expert in evaluating the results of your neurotransmitter test. Additionally, the experts at NeuroScience's technical support department can offer supplemental assistance for your healthcare provider in all aspects of the neurotransmitter programs, like interpreting your results. Your healthcare provider can use these interpretations as a basis for a comprehensive treatment program to address your condition(s). One component of your treatment may be the use of NeuroScience products, which are designed to balance your neurotransmitter levels.
