Children’s Wellness


Your child’s health includes their physical, mental and social well-being. Our children’s wellness program analyzes each patient’s nutrition, sleep and exercise habits with emphasis on their mental wellness. Neurotransmitter testing helps determine imbalances that can result in symptoms and conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, weight issues, memory problems and more!

What are Neurotransmitters?

The brain uses neurotransmitters to tell your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest. They can also affect mood, sleep, concentration, weight, and can cause adverse symptoms when they are out of balance.

 

There are two kinds of neurotransmitters – INHIBITORY and EXCITATORY. Excitatory neurotransmitters stimulate the brain. Those that calm the brain and help create balance are called inhibitory. Inhibitory neurotransmitters balance mood and are easily depleted when the excitatory neurotransmitters are overactive.

Effects of Neurotransmitter Imbalances

In today’s society, there are a significant number of children struggling with focus issues, behavioral problems and developmental delays. These children are also more likely to suffer from low self-esteem, develop emotional and social problems, and underachieve in school.

 

As these children grow into adults, they have an increased risk for substance abuse and developing low mood, anxiousness, and other psychiatric disorders.

 

Many children who experience attention and hyperactivity issues may suffer from a neurotransmitter imbalance. Neurotransmitter imbalances have been linked to lack of focus, poor concentration, hyperactivity, and irregular sleep patterns.

 

Many neurotransmitters, such as norepinephrine, epinephrine, phenylethylamine (PEA, etc., play key roles in maintaining normal attentiveness and behavior.

 

  • Norepinephrine – is normally involved in vigilance and wakefulness: however, high levels of norepinephrine can reduce the rate of information processing and reduce attentiveness.

 

  • Epinephrine and norepinephrine – enhances memory formation. Patients with attention issues display decreased urinary epinephrine levels which may contribute to difficulties in information retrieval.

 

  • PEA (phenylethylamine) – is an excitatory neurotransmitter that appears to be involved in the ability  to focus and tends to be lower in patients struggling with attention issues.

The Importance of Neurotransmitter Testing

Not only are optimal levels of these neurotransmitters necessary to maintain focus, but an imbalance in one neurotransmitter is likely to affect other neurotransmitters. Addressing neurotransmitter balance can be the key to getting attention and hyperactivity issues under control.

 

Neurotransmitter testing helps assess whether over or under stimulation of the relevant neurotransmitters is contributing to a patient’s focus issues, behavioral problems of developmental delays.

 

As such, clinical outcomes can be improved when therapies target specific neurotransmitters.
