A Neurotransmitter test can determine levels of Serotonin, Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine, GABA, PEA, Histamine, Glutamate, and Creatinine. These Neurotransmitter test are useful to help determine which natural remedies are appropriate or medications. Simple urine and/or saliva collection.

Neurotransmitters and neurotransmitter metabolites available for testing:
5-HIAA Abnormal levels of 5-HIAA have been associated with depression, suicidal behaviors, aggression, chronic psychotropic medication use, and Parkinson’s Disease.
DOPAC Dopamine Metabolite: Combined measurements of DOPAC and dopamine have been used to assess the activity of dopaminergic neurons.
Dopamine Excitatory neuromodulator: Dopamine is the precursor to norepinephrine and epinephrine, which are all catecholamines. Dopamine plays a large role in the pleasure/reward pathway (addiction and thrills), memory, and motor control.
Epinephrine Excitatory neuromodulator: Epinephrine also known as adrenaline is derived from the amine norepinephrine. As a neurotransmitter, epinephrine regulates attentiveness and mental focus.
GABA: The primary function of GABA is to prevent overstimulation.
Glutamate: Chronic malfunctioning of glutamatergic systems may be involved in many neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington´s disease, Parkinson´s disease, Alzheimer´s disease, vascular dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, AIDS-neurodegeneration, Tourette´s syndrome, and Korsakoff syndrome.
Histamine: Histamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter involved in the sleep/wake cycle and inflammatory response.
Norepinephrine: Norepinephrine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that is important for attention and focus.
PEA: Beta-phenylethylamine (PEA) is an excitatory neurotransmitter derived from the amino acid phenylalanine.
Serotonin: Serotonin is an inhibitory neurotransmitter synthesized by enzymes that act on tryptophan and/or 5-HTP.
