Having optimal hormone levels can make a huge difference in health and how we feel. We must not, however, overlook our brain and the adrenal gland.
Humans are complex and there are a number of body systems that must function in perfect harmony. There is a beautiful symphony of processes and interplay between our gastrointestinal system, hormone producing glands, tissues and brain. If one system is under functioning, multiple processes can suffer & ultimately compromise optimal health.
Anti-depressant and anxiety medication use in this country is at an epidemic proportion. When physicians don’t try to understand why someone feels poorly, it is an all too easy fallback to prescribe antidepressants. Despite the many appropriate uses, patients are staying on these medications for far too long and are not educated on the proper way to wean off them.
In our opinion, these medications are band-aids. We strive to understand the physiology of what may be deficient instead of tricking the brain to keep more of a neurotransmitter in the brain.
By evaluating the amino acids (neurotransmitters) of the brain and adrenal gland, we can improve health and well-being for a multitude of problems:
Stress over time can cumulatively wear on the human body. Stress comes in many forms environmental, relationships, dietary, physical, etc. When we don’t replenish our bodies with proper nutrients, we suffer the consequences.
We use specialized urine and saliva tests that are collected at specific times.
The results then allow us to construct a treatment protocol of high grade supplements. We retest in 2-3 months and adjust the protocol from there.
Brain Wellness evaluation has been an incredible addition to our practice and has provided multiple breakthroughs for optimal physical and mental health.
