Feeling anxious, experiencing low mood, or finding it hard to motivate yourself can be signs that your neurotransmitters, the brain’s chemical messengers, might be out of balance. These crucial chemicals influence our thoughts, emotions, pain perception, and pleasures—shaping everything from our energy levels and appetite to our sleep patterns and libido.
Stress, poor diet, or food sensitivities can disrupt neurotransmitter balance, particularly affecting serotonin, known as the ‘feel good’ hormone predominantly produced in the gut. With a significant number of people having less than ideal neurotransmitter levels, it’s essential to understand the profound impact this can have on our well-being.
Many patients who have found little relief from conventional medications for mood disorders can benefit from neurotransmitter testing. This testing reveals the levels of key brain chemicals like dopamine, serotonin, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. Dr. Falk utilizes these insights to craft personalized treatment plans that target the root cause of mood imbalances, complementing existing medication regimens safely.
