The central and peripheral nervous system, the hormonal glands (endocrine system), the immune system and the psyche form a network in which the individual components depend on constant information exchange and continually influence one another. Neurotransmitters, like hormones, are messenger substances in this complex network which – by means of precise coordination between the excitory and inhibitory neurotransmitters – allow the system to adapt to the respective situation.
However, constant emotional or physical stress may, if regeneration and recovery are not sufficient, result in a neurotransmitter imbalance and symptoms such as exhaustion, malaise, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue etc.
We offer tests for the following neurotransmitters:
Depending on the initial situation and requested parameters, it can be necessary to test the blood, the urine, or the second urine passed in the morning. It could also make sense to combine it with a test of neurohormones (e.g. cortisol day profile, DHEA day profile, adrenal stress index).
