Patients are complex. Similar symptoms can be the result of many different, and individualised, neurotransmitter and hormone imbalances. Mental health challenges are not isolated in the brain alone. There are many factors affecting our mental wellbeing, and by assessing neurotransmitters and reproductive and adrenal hormones, we can get a more well-rounded understanding of how nutrition, digestion, inflammation, stress, metabolism, and methylation may be contributing to the symptom picture. Proper testing can be utilised to determine which therapeutics may be considered appropriate.
- Review enzyme activity and connections with hormone metabolism and neurotransmission
- Assess how influences on the HPA axis including chronic stress and inflammation can impact mood, sleep, cognition, weight, and more
- Identify scenarios where considering neurotransmitter testing in conjunction with hormone metabolite testing would be appropriate, utilising the Doctor’s Data HuMap™ Plus Neurotransmitters profile.
- Introduce treatment options based on specific patient imbalances
