Neurotransmitter testing assists in assessing the balance of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine and glutamate. The human nervous system is one of the most complex systems in nature. It is responsible for coordinating thousands of body processes, from muscle contraction to digestion.
The center for the nervous system is the brain, which contains over 100 billion specialized cells called neurons. The nervous system contains very important chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest. Unfortunately, the nervous system can be disrupted through a number of factors, including stress, poor diet, toxic chemicals, infections and genetics. These factors can cause the levels of neurotransmitters to become either too high or too low. Imbalances in neurotransmission, due to excessive or deficient neurotransmitter levels are associated with depression, insomnia, anxiety, behavioral disorders, memory disorders, and a spectrum of other brain-related functions.
