Neurotransmitter Testing is now available to detect imbalances among your major brain chemicals (dopamine, serotonin, GABA, glutamate, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and others)!
Sophisticated new equipment and technology are now available to evaluate neurotransmitter imbalances using a urine or blood sample. Such testing enables us to obtain a baseline assessment of your neurotransmitter levels, helps determine the root causes for many diseases and illnesses, and paves the way for more personalized treatment of your most troubling symptoms and conditions. Laboratory analysis can now provide precise information on brain neurotransmitter deficiencies or overloads, as well as detect hormonal and nutrient co-factor imbalances which influence neurotransmitter production. Individuals require individual solutions. Testing helps to determine exactly which neurotransmitter levels are out of balance and helps to determine which therapies are needed for an individualized treatment plan. It also helps in monitoring the effectiveness of an individual's treatment.
How do you measure brain chemicals in urine?
Studies have demonstrated that intact neurotransmitters are transported from the CNS (central nervous system) to the periphery, via specific BBB (blood brain barrier) transporters, followed by renal filtration of neurotransmitters with subsequent excretion in the urine. Additionally, animal studies have suggested a relationship between neurotransmitters excreted in the urine and neurotransmitters in the CNS (Lynn-Bullock et al., 2004).

The following are some of the brain neurotransmitter tests that determine levels of excitatory neurotransmitters and inhibitory neurotransmitters. These test are performed at a licensed clinical laboratory that is the world leader in neurochemical analysis and research. These neurotransmitter tests will give you answers as to what is going on with the neurotransmitter levels that are so important to your state of mental and physical health. These neurotransmitter lab test are useful to determine deficiencies in neurotransmitter levels as well as high or excessive neurotransmitter activity with can lead to toxicity in the brain.
Telephone Consultations are available to provide you with testing recommendations, information on your condition, as well as suggestions for treatment, diet and lifestyle changes. You will also receive information about medication and alternatives to it, plus recommendations for a complete neurotransmitter balancing plan.
