NEUROTRANSMITTERS are the brain chemicals that communicate information throughout our brain and body. They relay signals between nerve cells, called “neurons.” The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell our heart to beat, our lungs to breathe, and our stomach to digest. There are calming and stimulating neurotransmitters. Each neurotransmitter can directly or indirectly influence neurons in a specific portion of the brain, thereby affecting behavior and stress responses. When Neurotransmitters are out of balance we may be experiencing any combination of these:
A number of things like high stress, poor diet, genetics, and toxins, can cause our neurotransmitters to get out of balance. In order to create a plan to target specific imbalances of neurotransmitters, we can start with urine testing that assesses them. Finally, a program will be developed that incorporates a healthy diet, proper exercise, reduced toxic exposures, and customized nutrient support.
“And be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude], and put on the new self [the regenerated and renewed nature], created in God’s image, [godlike] in the righteousness and holiness of the truth [living in a way that expresses to God your gratitude for your salvation].” Ephesians 4:34-34 Amplified Version
