NEUROTRANSMITTER TESTING

NeurotransmitterA growing number of healthcare providers and patients are looking for more effective ways to address today’s most common health issues. In our ever-expanding understanding of human health, we have come to the realization that our health is never as simple as it may seem. There is an interconnectedness between the different biological systems in the body, just as there is in our external environment. Our understanding of these relationships requires a new approach to health- a systems approach- whereby the impact of each human biological system is evaluated in relationship to each other, not in isolation.

Our nervous system influences how we think, feel, and act, as well as how the rest of our body functions. At NeuroScience, we believe the function of the central nervous system, including a balance of neurotransmitters, plays an essential and central role in the health of all body systems.

We have teamed up with a company, Neuroscience, Inc., that advocates an assess-address approach to nervous system function. This process entails laboratory assessment of the body’s chemical messengers, via urinary neurotransmitter and salivary hormone testing. Based on the laboratory results, NeuroScience works with healthcare providers to develop Targeted Amino Acid Therapy (TAATsm) programs designed to address the spectrum of neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances.

Addressing neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances through TAATsm can lead to significantly improved patient outcomes for a number of today’s most challenging conditions.

Medical research has established a definite link between neurotransmitters and a number of conditions. It has been concluded that deficient or excessive neurotransmitter levels may be at the root of many of these conditions. Therefore, the ability to assess the levels of various neurotransmitters offers healthcare providers a useful tool in addressing neurotransmitter-related conditions.

As such, NeuroScience has developed a comprehensive line of neuroendocrine laboratory test profiles to assist healthcare providers in selecting the parameters best suited for each patient. Urinary neurotransmitter and salivary hormone testing is not diagnostic for any particular condition or disease, however testing can identify one or more biochemical imbalances that maybe playing a role in various conditions.

NeuroScience’s laboratory services are performed by Pharmasan Labs, Inc., an independent, CLIA-certified, reference laboratory that also holds certification from the New York Department of Health to perform analyses on specimens received from New York.
