The human nervous system is quite complex. The brain uses chemical messengers called neurotransmitters for basic functions such as telling the heart to beat and the lungs to breathe. Neurotransmitters are also necessary for thought processes, emotions, and essential body functions such as sleep and energy.
There are two types of neurotransmitters, excitatory that stimulate the brain and the body and inhibitory – the calming system. It is important to maintain a balance between these two categories.
Numerous factors can disrupt neurotransmitter balance including stress, poor diet, toxic chemicals, infection and genetics. If the levels become too high or low, it can lead to depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, foggy thinking and headaches. We do testing and re-balancing on neurotransmitters at CIRH to ensure your nervous system is operating at its best.
