Which entails NeuroTransmitter Testing and Analyzing Brain Chemistry
Abnormalities in Brain Chemical levels & Their Ratios
are the Primary Mechanism of Mental and
Emotional Issues experienced by an individual
Brain Chemical Abnormalities can be caused byGenetic/Hereditary factors,
Stress, Environment, Trauma, Medications, Substance Abuse or
Phase of life like Menopause, Aging etc.
Regardless of the Cause, the Pattern of Imbalance in the Brain Chemistry will Determine
the Nature & Severity of Symptoms that Individual will Experience
Testing reveals exactly which Brain Chemicals are Deficient or in Excess.
The abnormalities in
SEROTONIN, GABA, DOPAMINE, EPINEPHRINE,
GLUTAMATE, HISTAMINE, ACETYLCHOLINE
are Primarily Responsible for the manisfestation of Psychiatric Symptoms.
These Chemical Imbalances Adversely affect our
Memory, Attention, Concentration, Mood
Appetite, Alertness, Sleep,
Energy Levels, Hunger, Sex Drive and
Many Other Aspects of our Cognition, Physical & Emotional Health
to check Levels of
CORTISOL, THYROID Hormones, ESTROGEN,
TESTOSTERONE, DHEA & PROGESTERONE
as they may be Abnormal in Patients
Presenting with Emotional Stress
The Stress Hormone of the Body is Produced by Adrenal Glands
Fluctuations in Cortisol levels can diminish our Ability to deal with Stress effectively.
leading to Poor Stress Tolerance, Jitteriness, Anxiety
Individual may feel "Wired & Tired", overwhelmed, fatigue, low energy, sugar cravings and
general feeling of " burn out".
Left Untreated, it will lead to Adrenal Fatigue or Exhaustion
Hormone Deficiency or Excess can Mimic symptoms of Depression and Anxiety
as Well Fatigue, Weight Gain, Cold or Heat Intolerance,
Heart Palpitations, Hair Loss and Sleep Disturbance
changes during Puberty, Pregnancy, Post Partum, Menopause, Andropause, &
Use of Oral Contraceptives can have a huge Impact on the
Psychological State of Individual.
The tests to check Sex Hormones levels are an integral Part of the Assessment
BLOOD & URINE TESTS
While under treatment we order detailed tests to monitor
Blood Sugar, Electrolytes, Cholesterol, White Cell Count, Hemoglobin,
Liver Enzymes and Kidney function to make sure you are not suffering from a serious Medical Condition & do not experience adverse s/e of medications.
In certain cases, especially when treating patients with Stimulants,
we may order Heart EKG to Ensure its safe to use them
NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCY TESTING &
HEAVY METALS TOXICITY TESTING
