Neurotransmitter Testing is now available to detect imbalances among your major brain chemicals (dopamine, serotonin, GABA, glutamate, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and others)!
Basing treatment on symptoms alone (traditional medicine) will not provide us with the information we need to address the underlying neurotransmitter imbalances causing your symptoms. A visit to a doctor or practitioner's office for depression involves telling them how you have been feeling emotionally. The typical depressed person leaves the office with a prescription for an antidepressant without ever having any conclusive laboratory evidence of what is causing their symptoms.
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.
Here are the three test that meet most clients needs. We also offer phone consultations with our doctor or nurse practitioner to review your history, symptoms, medications and supplements, then give you recommendations.

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).
