Know What Your Body Needs to Treat or Prevent Illnesses


Concepts in neurochemistry, endocrinology, technology, and therapeutic effects on complex biochemistry.

Neurotransmitters and hormones are your body's communication system. Our bodies use a communication system of Brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) and hormones that allow crosstalk to happen between parts of the body. Much like a busy interstate with cars and trucks going in different distinctions, each vehicle goes to another place but serves a purpose that contributes to the system's overall prosperity. The main central command center of communication in the body is the Brain. Our communication happens because of neurons with neurotransmitters that initiate communication to our hormones and glands that help our organs and other body systems work correctly and in balance.

When the brain-body communication system is working well, we experience good health! When brain-body communication is out of balance, and the neurotransmitter pathways (our superhighway) are not effectively signaling to our hormones and glands, we experience poor health.

Could-hormonal imbalance be at the root of your chronic conditions?

Imbalance in neurotransmitters and hormones may lead to symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Anxiousness
  • Lack of focus
  • Poor memory
  • Hyperactivity
  • Mood swings, sadness
  • Poor sleep regulation
  • Irritability
  • Addictions and cravings
  • Gaining weight around your abdomen

There are many other symptoms neurologically and biologically that neurotransmitter hormone imbalances cause. Symptoms you may be experiencing could have a root cause by this imbalance. Research has shown that deficiencies and excesses of certain neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine and hormones, like cortisol may contribute to chronic issues. Neurotransmitter-Hormone testing can discover these imbalances and maybe the end of the symptoms.

What contributes to these neurohormonal imbalances?

Many factors could disrupt this delicate system, leading to an array of symptoms and illnesses. Chronic stress, environmental factors, or diet lack an exercise dysregulated sleep, stimulants, genetic predispositions, and even medications prescribed to take care of these symptoms could eventually deplete your system, causing further imbalance.

Links between health concerns and neurotransmitter
in hormone levels:

Associated with HIGH levels:

  • Cortisol - anxiousness, poor sleep, insulin resistance, immune suppression

  • Dopamine - developmental problems, poor impulse control delusions out of touch with reality

  • Norepinephrine - hyperactivity, stress and anxiety, anger, headache, increased blood pressure, hot flashes, weight issues

  • Epinephrine - anxiousness, stress, insulin resistance, blood sugar dysregulation

  • Glutamate - anxiousness, stress, decreased mood, neurotoxicity

  • GABA - sadness, over innovation leading to poor cognition and memory

  • PEA (phenethylamine) - anxiousness, overstimulation, irregular movement, increased HPA (hypothalamus-adrenal-pituitary) reactivity

Associated with LOW levels:

  • Cortisol - 50, inflammation, salt craving, sensitivity to loud noise, difficulty waking up, second wind at night, daytime sleepiness, low libido, premature aging

  • Dopamine - lack of motivation, loss of focus, cravings, low libido

  • Norepinephrine - lack of focus, lack of energy, lack of motivation, decreased mood

  • Epinephrine - difficulty losing weight, poor sugar control, or methylation

  • Glutamate - mental fatigue, cognitive impairment

  • GABA - anxiousness, hyperactivity, sleep dysregulation

  • Serotonin - depressed mood, anxiousness, anger, carbohydrate cravings, sleep dysregulation, headaches, constipation, PMS/hot flashes

  • PEA (phenethylamine) - lack of focus, lack of attention, decreased mood, delusions, fear-like symptoms.
