Neurotransmitter Testing

Neurotransmitter imbalances are the cause of many common symptoms suffered by many with today’s busy lifestyles. We use Pharmasan Labs to do neurotransmitter (NT) testing from the urine. Urine levels reflect total body levels of various NT such as serotonin, GABA, dopamine and others. The imbalances detected in the urine reflect imbalances in the brain as well.

Common symptoms of NT imbalances include anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue and food cravings.

Neurotransmitter imbalances can be corrected using targeted amino acid therapy. Supplements containing amino acid precursors to NT along with important vitamin cofactors are used to restore balance in the NT levels in the brain and body.

Some insurance companies, including Medicare, will pay for the NT testing. Various panels are available with costs ranging from $120 to $320. Check with your insurance company regarding coverage.
