Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that the nervous system uses to communicate information from one nerve to another. Things like genetics, chemicals, toxins, environment, and nutritional deficiencies can affect neurotransmitter function. As neurotransmitter production breaks down, imbalances can occur which can cause the nervous system to try and over-compensate. This process can lead to psychological and/or neurological problems.
Common Conditions Associated with Neurotransmitter Dysregulation
There are different factors that can contribute to mental and physical health such as imbalanced hormones, nutritional deficiencies, and gut dysbiosis. However, some conditions also are contributed to or triggered by neurotransmitter imbalances. These can include:
- Chronic stress/inability to cope with stress
- Chronic fatigue
- Sleep disturbances which affect quantity and quality of sleep
- Impulsivity (ADD, ADHD, OCD)
How Hormones and Neurotransmitters Interact and Depend on Each Other
Hormones and neurotransmitters are synergistic. Both play important roles in production, signaling each other, and in metabolism. If hormones are out of balance, it affects the way neurotransmitters function, and vice-versa.
At the Dynamic Life Health Center, Dr. Berutti is focused on identifying root causes of symptoms and dysfunction within the body. Often times our patients who have hormonal imbalances also have neurotransmitter dysfunction which can exacerbate their symptoms and malaise. The ZRT Neurotransmitter testing can identify exactly where dysregulation is occurring.
ZRT Neurotransmitter Testing
Hormones that can be affected by neurotransmitter function include, but are not limited to:
Testing Reveals Heavy Metal Toxicity
Exposure to heavy metals can also disrupt neurotransmitter function. Oxidative stress caused by heavy metals can damage nerve cells throughout the body and nervous system. This can lead to anxiety, depression, poor memory, and even dementia.
Identifying what is causing dysfunction is the first step to treating it. ZRT Laboratories is the only lab that offers this comprehensive testing of all of the different factors that can contribute to dysregulated neurotransmitters, hormonal imbalances, and toxins.
