Neurotransmitter Therapy in Newport Beach, CA

Neurotransmitter Therapy in Newport Beach, CA

Neurotransmitters are proteins found in the brain that control your mood, sleep patterns, eating habits, ability to focus, and much more. Healthy levels of neurotransmitters are necessary for these processes to work correctly.

Causes of Neurotransmitter Imbalance

There are many factors that can cause your neurotransmitter levels to drop. These include:

  • A poor diet
  • Stress 
  • Neurotoxins
  • Genetics
  • Alcohol 
  • Caffeine
  • Recreational and prescription drugs

Neurotransmitter Therapy

Neurotransmitter therapy uses specific amino acid supplements and other vitamins or minerals (usually taken in a pill form) to help correct imbalances. Amino acids have been highly studied and are powerful for the correction of many neurologic or mental health imbalances.

Your medical provider will need to determine which neurotransmitters are out of balance in your body before any supplements are prescribed.  Some providers will ask for a urine sample to test, or you may need to give some blood.

After testing, you may need a variety of amino acids, vitamins or minerals to help restore balance. Some of the most common include:

  • B vitamins
  • Magnesium
  • Folic acid
  • Tryptophan
  • L-Phenylalanine and others

Acupuncture has also been shown to affect the secretion of neurotransmitters.
