Neurotransmitter Balance

Find out if emotion issues are hormone related 

What is Neurotransmitters?

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the

nervous system to relay anything that it sees, hears, touches, smells or ingests -

communicating back and forth between the brain and the body.

Optimal balance is required to maintain health.

Imbalances can produce psychological symptoms.

Dopamine:

mediator of pleasure and reward; improves attention, focus and motivation, modulates movement control, and is a key player in addictive behaviors.

2252903.png

Epinephrine & norepinephrine:

regulate the fight or flight response by stimulating alertness, blood pressure and heart rate.

γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA)

major inhibitory ‘off’ switch in the brain; improves mood, relieves anxiety and promotes sleep.

2252901.png

Glutamate:

major excitatory ‘on’ switch in the brain; increases alertness, optimizes learning and memory, and improves mood and libido.

Glycine:

anti-inflammatory; improves sleep quality and calms aggression.

Histamine:

increase metabolism, promotes wakefulness and suppresses appetite

Phenethylamine (PEA)

promotes energy, elevates mood and regulates attention and aggression

Serotonin:

the ‘happiness molecule’; contributes to the feelings of calm and wellbeing that ease depression and anxiety, supports sleep and decreases appetite.

Health Impacts of Neurotransmitters

1173258.png

Anxiety & Depression:

Linked with imbalances of Glutamate, PEA, Histamine, Serotonin, as well as Epinephrine and Norepinephrine

1173258.png

Impulsive behaviors:

GABA, Dopamine and Serotonin imbalances are commonly linked to disorders like ADD, ADHD and OCD.

Fatigue:

An imbalance between excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters is likely.

Insomnia:

Glutamate, Histamine, Dopamine, GABA, Serotonin, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine play a role in insomnia.

PMS or PMDD:

Imbalances like Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine and GABA are often involved.

HK BioTek Technology Competence

•  Sample will be sent to ZRT Laboratory in the United States for analysis, which is the only specialty hormone laboratory to have qualified for the CDC’s Hormone Standardization Program (HoSt).

•  All hormone test are analysed with reference ranges for individual patient ages, menstrual status, and hormone supplementation.

•  ZRT is the only laboratory to perform an extraction process for saliva testing, which separates hormones from background contamination. This ensures accurate test results for low-concentration hormones

Testing Items

Dried urine samples are used for a comprehensive assessment to unlock the relationship between emotion issue and hormones.

Frequently-Asked Questions

1.    What are neurotransmitters?

Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers used by the nervous system to relay information from one nerve to another. Optimal neurotransmitter balance is required to maintain proper health. Imbalances can cause the brain and the body to be over- or under-stimulated producing neurological or psychological symptoms. 

2.    How a dysregulated nervous system impacts health?

Genetics, environment, chemicals and nutritional deficiencies are a few factors that can impact neurotransmitter production. Once out of balance, the nervous system begins to compensate, which can lead to neurological or psychological symptoms. 

3.    What is the connection between hormone and neurotransmitters?

In the neurological system, hormones are synergistic with neurotransmitters, modulating their production, signaling and metabolism. Because of this complex interplay, the combined testing of hormones and neurotransmitters provide a diagnostic edge over the traditional psychological inventory.
