Neurotransmitter Health in Georgia
What is a neurotransmitter?
A neurotransmitter is an important messenger of your nervous system. The brain uses neurotransmitters to signal your body to work. They signal the heart to beat, the digestion to function, and the brain to react a certain way. They also signal our moods.
What do neurotransmitters do for you?
They help you feel good when there is a balance between the calming and stimulant neurotransmitters.
At our office we can provide you with a specific neurotransmitter questionnaire, neurotransmitter testing through blood or urine, and specific support products to bring you back into balance.
