Brain Nutrition - Nuerotransmitter Support

Support Healthy Brain Chemistry with Neurotransmitters and Nutrition

There are several ways to positively impact brain chemistry. Two main ways to produce physiological change in the brain chemistry is through proper neurotransmitter balance and nutrition.

Neurotransmitters

Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers within our bodies that are utilized throughout the entire nervous system and body. We all have them, need, them, survive on them, and thrive on them, yet nearly all people have an imbalance. 

Most importantly, neurotransmitters cause proper and improper function in the body, including physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive processes. They make our bodies work and represent who we are mentally, and functionally. Neurotransmitters allow the transmission or communication from neuron to the other neurons across synapses, which mean they allow nerve cells to communicate.

The proper balance of neurotransmitters is essential to proper brain function, combating illness and fatigue, recovering from concussion symptoms, other mental brain ailments such as Parkinson's and dementia. We can continue to shift and modify behaviors in a positive direction however the underlying brain biochemistry may be part of the issue. This applies to anyone, such as people with asthma, autism, post-concussion symptoms, cancer, diabetes, poor sleep, weak work or athletic performance, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autoimmune conditions, immune conditions, lack of focus, poor memory, pain syndromes, depression, narcolepsy, and attention disorders.

A very important consideration is that neurotransmitters inform us why the body is acting in its current state. One example is a decrease of norepinephrine in the brain can cause inattention or an inability to concentrate sometimes found as a culprit in children with ADHD. Another example is dopamine's function in the brain is for movement, thus the lack of dopamine will cause difficulty or inability to move limbs such as with Parkinson's patients.

If neurotransmitters are imbalanced at any stage of life, especially paired with sensory overload, physiological alternations can occur. To clarify, this means some behaviors such as depression, laziness, aggression, inattention, and anxiety despite the best home and work environments are directly driven by neurotransmitters.

Supporting a person's "whole being" through neurotransmitter therapy can improve even those patients who have sustained years of neurotransmitters imbalances and ultimately negative physiological change.

Testimonials

  • "I was having headaches everyday due to concussions. My moods were unpredictable and I always felt like I was in a fog. I would have migraines at least once a week. I just didn't feel right and no one was able to tell me what was wrong. The neurologists I went to see would simply say I needed time to rest my brain after a concussion. They didn't tell me what part of my brain was affected or offer any form of treatment. I was frustrated and looking for anything to make me feel better. I went to Dr. Ruben as a last hope. Little did I know he was exactly what I needed. Dr. Ruben took his time to find out exactly what was wrong with me, bringing me not only piece of mind but also a solution. Today, I am feeling more like myself again. I haven't had a migraine in over two months and I can't remember the last time I had a headache. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like a doctor really cared. Thank you Dr. Ruben for giving me my life back!"

  • "I have been to other chiropractors, but none have provided the care or knowledge I received from Dr. St. Laurent. He was able to find the root causes to improve my brain chemistry. His understanding of neurology and adjusting techniques had me back on my feet in a few days with less visits."
