What is Neurotransmitter testing?
Neurotransmitter tests will help determine your profile of brain chemicals. There are 15 neurotransmitters that affect our mood, our energy levels, sleep patterns and ability to focus. This test uses a urine sample. Testing your urine will determine your unique natural brain chemicals/hormones and show the imbalances that are causing your depression symptoms, fatigue, anxiety symptoms or other health issue.

Absolutely, current medications do not interfere with testing. Many patients do not feel well on medication and the test determines that the medications are not working to provide optimal levels of neurotransmitters.

A simple urine test is available to give an exact picture of your neurotransmitter status. So treatment can be unique to you.
