The results from my NeuroScience tests

The results from my NeuroScience tests

Ok, so I got my hormone/neurotransmitter test back this week and wanted to share the results.

  • Norepinephrine is low
  • Dopamine is low
  • Serotonin is low
  • Glycine is low
  • PEA is deficient
  • Agmatine is elevated
  • Testosterone is low
  • Dihydrotestosterone is low
  • DHEA is low
  • Cortisol is normal in the morning, deficient in the afternoon and evening, and normal at night
  • Norephinephrine is low
  • Dopamine is low

So, they recommended a 3 phase program to help balance everything out where it’s supposed to be. During the first phase they recommend two supplements for me to take, then phase two consists of those two supplements plus one additional one and phase three I drop back down to just two of the three supplements. Here’s what they say about each phase:

“Phase 1 is designed to support inhibitory neurotransmitter levels such as GABA, serotonin, and taurine. During this phase, improvements in anxiousness, mood, or sleep can be expected. Side effects are generally mild and may include nausea, vomiting, or GI upset and typically subside with continued use; they may also be managed with dosage adjustment or buffering supplementation with food. Phase 1 is designed to last approximately two weeks, but extending Phase 1 may be necessary if patient is still experiencing noticeable over stimulation or restlessness.”
“Phase 2 generally continues until neurotransmitter levels have been optimized and health is improved, and usually takes a minimum of 3 months. During phase dosage may be manipulated to achieve results. This is followed by a transition into Phase 3.”
“Phase 3 is important for maintaining adequate neurotransmitter levels. Without continued supplemental support transmitter levels will revert to baseline values. As a result, improved health may not be maintained.”

Ok, so I started phase 1 on Tuesday and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. So far I’m feeling pretty good but more tired and fatigued even than usually – but my doctor said that is common in phase 1 and to just stick with it so hopefully that will get better once everything starts to balance out. I will keep you all posted.

Health to you and yours
