What are neurotransmitters?
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that carry signals between the neurons in the body. An imbalance or deficiency in the levels of neurotransmitters can effect cognitive performance, emotional responses, energy levels, organ function. This can result in issues such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, ADD, ADHD, weight gain, hormone imbalances, and more.
Measurable neurotransmitters include epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, serotonin, GABA, and glutamate.
why test neurotransmitters?
The key to treating any condition is to know the underlying cause. Without knowing what imbalance is being treated it can be very difficult to determine the right course of treatment that will bring relief.
If you struggle with anxiety, depression, ADD, ADHD, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, memory issues, etc, you may be a good candidate for neurotransmitter testing. So many patients are prescribed medications for psychological issues without ever knowing what imbalance is being treated, and because of this have great difficulty finding a treatment that works. With neurotransmitter testing, we can determine the cause of your symptoms and target treatment to address those specific imbalances. This can even be done without prescription medications.
how do you test?
Neurotransmitter levels can be tested very easily through a simple urine collection. Researchers have repeatedly demonstrated that urinary neurotransmitter measurements correlate with neurological conditions. This testing kit is sent with you to complete in the comfort of your own home and shipped directly to our processing lab. Results generally take 3-4 weeks to come in.
What does this cost?
Neurotransmitter testing can be covered by some insurance providers- we can check your insurance before testing to find out if your insurance is eligible for billing. We also offer discounted pricing for those with insurance that is not eligible or who do not have insurance. This cost is under $300.
