Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers created in neurons and used by your nervous system to pass information from one nerve to another. The most common neurotransmitters are serotonin and dopamine, but in fact there are 9 very important neurotransmitters we can test, in conjunction with other appropriate tests, to find the specific chemical imbalance leading to the systems such as:
- Mood swings
- Panic attacks
- Chronic Fatigue
- Brain fog
- and others
Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated, producing neurological or psychological symptoms.
There are factors that can contribute to an imbalance in neurotransmitter production such as nutritional deficiency (vitamins and minerals), toxic exposure, chronic stress, living in emotionally toxic environment, emotional or physical trauma, genetics. When not properly addressed in time, these condition trigger your nervous system to start compensating which can lead to neurological or psychological symptoms.
