Testing & Validity
Neurotransmitter testing is an important aspect of addressing neurotransmitter conditions and serves three important roles:
Quantitatively establishes the need for intervention
Guides the practitioner towards the proper course of action
Allows the practitioner to monitor treatment
Neurotransmitter levels are greatly affected by stress, lifestyle, genetics and diet and a laboratory evaluation of neurotransmitter levels has shown that approximately 70% of the population has some degree of neurotransmitter imbalance.
The validity of urinary neurotransmitter testing and its usefulness in a clinical setting has been well documented by numerous peer-reviewed journals.
