Amino Acid Therapy in Brooklyn NY | Neurotransmitter Therapy

What is Neurotransmitter Therapy?

Neurotransmitter therapy is a term that is used to describe the use of adding supplemental amino acids to your body. These amino acids help balance the brain chemicals as well as other aspects of the normal functions of the body. For neurotransmitter therapy to be effective, it must include a highly specialized urinalysis test to give a reliable measure of the excretory values of the neurotransmitters. The urinalysis test results then provide an individualized amino acid supplementation plan. This will be devised to balance ratios of neurotransmitters better in the brain.

Who needs Neurotransmitter Therapy

Neurotransmitter therapy works well with people of all ages, from children to the elderly. While the drug industry has attempted to convince people that they need prescription drugs to help relieve their symptoms, amino acid therapy is a more effective method that is safe and easy.

Neurotransmitter Therapy Effects

Neurotransmitters (NT’s) are chemicals manufactured by our bodies that allow our nervous system to function properly. The master chemicals are serotonin and the catecholamine group which consists of dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine. Various illnesses and declines in mental health functioning have been shown to be associated with low functional levels of neurotransmitters in the body. Some illnesses include:

  • Depression;
  • Anxiety;
  • Parkinson’s disease;
  • Insomnia;
  • Fibromyalgia;
  • Panic attacks;
  • ADD/ADHD;
  • Hormone Dysfunction;
  • Psychosis;
  • Anorexia;
  • Bulimia;
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, and much more.

There are several factors that can lead to an imbalance in brain chemistry, genetic predispositions play a large role, stress levels, certain prescribed medications, aging, and substance use/abuse can have a considerable impact on the brain, resulting in a detrimental imbalance. When neurotransmitters are unbalanced, the body is affected physically as well as cognitively.

Neurotransmitter Balancing Therapy

Implementing Neurotransmitter therapy enables us to bring the NT’s back into physiological balance, removing the impaired state. Every client is different and presents with varied levels of NT production, depletion, and symptomatology. For these reasons, we cater to each client’s needs individually, testing the client with our unique technology to determine where the problem areas lie, which NT’s are not being produced, or being overproduced and then we work to completely customize the NT therapy to tailor to the client’s condition. By using the amino acids in the fashion that we use them, we are able to manually control the NT function and production, enabling us to restore the proper balance, and eventually overcome the neurological deficiency.

These medically developed amino acid formulas are scientifically based and patented. Their safety and effectiveness have been determined by their thousands of hours of clinical testing.

What Are the Benefits of Neurotransmitter Therapy?

If you have neurotransmitter issues, such as depression or anxiety, you were most likely prescribed medication, such as an SSRI. These medications, however, only relieve the symptoms of your disease rather than cure it. Amino acid therapy actually helps the body make more chemicals to solve the underlying cause of the problem.

Neurotransmitters are chemicals that carry important messages to cells throughout our bodies. These chemicals control our mood, sleep, heart rate, and even fear. Amino acids are a type of neurotransmitter. The amino acid GABA plays a role in anxiety. Amino acid therapy creates more GABA chemicals to help fight anxiety at its core. Glutamate is another amino acid that amino acid therapy replaces in your body to help treat cognitive problems such as memory and Alzheimer’s disease.

NT therapy can treat a wide range of conditions such as insomnia, depression, anxiety, diabetes, fibromyalgia, migraines, and anorexia. Drugs such as SSRIs only mask your symptoms and actually deplete your NT’s over time. If your medications do not work or you want to stop taking them, consider neurotransmitter therapy to treat your ailments.

Therapy has a better long term effect on depression and other brain chemistry disorders than medical prescriptions. Having these four amino acids balanced helps the brain to properly function, letting the person go through life as normal without having to cope with difficulties with everyday tasks.
