Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that help relay information throughout the body. They transmit information through specialized nerve cells called neurons. How this works is that a signal is sent from the beginning of neuron (called the dendrite) to the other end (called the axon). At that point, information can be sent to other neurons via the release of neurotransmitters.
Rejuvenating neurotransmitter levels naturally is a multi-step process that involves avoiding neurotransmitter depletion and supplying the body the necessary building blocks through the targeted use of amino acid therapy. As a person progresses along the path to neurotransmitter optimization, several tests can be very useful to speed up and fine-tune the process. Click here for the full article.
Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that regulate most of the body’s functions. Neurotransmitter imbalances are responsible for a wide array of symptoms, including depression, anxiety, migraines, insomnia, inability to focus/concentrate, poor memory, obsessive thoughts/behaviors, overeating, addictions and even Parkinson’s disease. Restoring proper neurotransmitter function can significantly reduce and eliminate these symptoms of imbalance. Click here for the full article.
Neurotransmitters can be depleted by many things, including excessive stress, head or neck trauma, nutritional deficiency, digestive imbalances, sleep disturbances, chronic pain, alcohol and illicit drug use as well as many medications, including antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, sleep medications and migraine medications. So, the first step in rejuvenating neurotransmitters levels naturally is to limit or control as many of these variables as possible. The best place to start is… Read more
Excitatory neurotransmitters generally increase the flow of information by causing more neurons to fire; they are like the “gas pedal” that keeps us engaged and focused. Since every neurotransmitter works within a system, it is the balance between the inhibitory and excitatory neurotransmitters that is important in regards to how your body functions. Read more…
