Facts About Neurotransmitter Imbalances
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that facilitate the transmission of signals from one neuron to the next across a synapse. Neurotransmitters influence and regulate a wide range of processes such as mental performance, emotions, pain response, and energy levels.
Symptoms of neurotransmitter imbalances often overlap with other conditions, and can be mistaken for sex hormone imbalances, chronic infections, GI distress, metabolic abnormalities, neurological decline, chronic fatigue, and more.
Hormones—especially adrenal hormones and sex hormones—are interconnected with neurotransmitters. An imbalance in these hormones could lead to neurotransmitter imbalances which could cause hormonal imbalances.
The Neurotransmitter Test includes the following 33 neurotransmitters:
Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, Histamine, GABA, Glycine, Glutamate, Metanephrine, Tryptamine, Tyrosine, Tyramine, Taurine, Aspartate, Serine, 5-HTP, L-DOPA, Tryptophan, Quinolinic Acid, Kynurenic Acid, HVA / VMA Ratio, HVA / DOPAC Ratio, Quinolinic Acid / Five HIAA Ratio, Acetylcholine, 5-HIAA, PEA, DOPAC, HVA, Normetanephrine, VMA, 3-Methoxytyramine (3-MT), Oxytocin, Xanthurenic acid
