With age, we naturally change, both physically and mentally. It is completely normal to deal with feelings of anxiety and depression, especially following life-changing/traumatic events, but it is important to know there are solutions aside from prescription medications and other common treatments.
When we feel severely fatigued without even engaging in activity, become irritable for seemingly no reason, and/or struggle to remain focused, it is easy to assume this is just “part of life”, instead of getting to the root of the problem. While brain-foggy days and regular struggles are occasionally inevitable, there are all-natural solutions that may improve your sleep schedule, mood, desire to succeed, and energy levels. These solutions are at your fingertips. All you need to do is ask about Neurotransmitter testing…
Take control of your life again by considering you may be experiencing neurotransmitter imbalances. Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain that coordinate with the function of each of our bodily functions, acting as signals. Therefore, if one or more of your neurotransmitters are not in optimal range, you are probably feeling tired, anxious, low, and/or scatter-brained on a daily basis. There is a simple at-home test kit available for purchase at our office called NeuroLab by Sanesco. The test requires saliva and urine collection, which will provide us with a full workup of the following neurotransmitters and adrenal hormones:
- Serotonin (Inhibitory)
- GABA (Inhibitory)
- Epinephrine (Excitatory)
- Norepinephrine (Excitatory)
- Dopamine (Excitatory)
- PEA (Excitatory)
