Tired, Wired And Uninspired? There’s A Cure For That

Tired, Wired And Uninspired? There’s A Cure For That

Raise your hand if lately you’ve been feeling tired, wired and uninspired?

You’re not alone.

Mental health issues have grown since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and paired with global politics and rising prices – it’s a lot

So much, in fact, that currently, 26% of the population will struggle with mental health during the year. The ability to be resilient is dependent on your mental health. But resiliency is also dependent on your hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and your ability to control stimulatory input to your hypothalamus. 

So, what does all of that mean? 

Simply put, if you are still experiencing increased depression, anxiety, stress, or other mental health issues post-pandemic, it’s important to not only seek support from a licensed mental health provider but to also seek out any imbalances in your own body. This is done by testing for imbalances in your neurotransmitters through Urinary Neurotransmitter Testing. 

The following neurotransmitter levels in your body can be measured through Urinary Neurotransmitter Testing: 

  • Serotonin
  • GABA
  • Epinephrine
  • Norepinephrine
  • Dopamine
  • Glutamate
  • Phenylethylamine (PEA)

If one of these neurotransmitters is found to be out of balance, we can create a specialized protocol tailor-made for you that will address the imbalance and begin to improve your mental health and quality of life.

Fight or Flight 101

Most of us have heard of the fight or flight response. When we sense danger – whether real or imagined – our body responds with a stress signal to either fight the danger off or run away. The hormones that cause this are known as adrenaline, cortisol, and epinephrine (EPI). 

However, there is another not as known hormone called norepinephrine (NE), which is also raised during the fight or flight response.

When we have too much NE in our body, it can affect our sleep and cause anxiety. On the flip side, without enough NE, we can suffer from a lack of focus or sluggishness. To address these symptoms, NE levels must first be measured so we know how to best address the issue.
