Neurotransmitter Research

Brain Chemistry - Why Neurotransmitters and Associated Research are Essential

Returning neurotransmitters to a balanced condition can alleviate many psychiatric and neurological disorders. Neurotransmitters are at the foundation of many psychiatric and neurological disorders. Imbalances in neurotransmission, due to excessive or deficient neurotransmitter levels at the synaptic cleft (in the brain), are associated with depression, insomnia, anxiety, behavioral disorders, memory disorders, and a spectrum of other brain-relationed functions. Because neurotransmitters play an integral role in these disease states, they are prime targets for treating disorders of the nervous system and mental health concerns.

External interventions can alter nervous system function. These may include pharmaceutical medications or nutritional supplements.

Pharmaceutical medications influence neurotransmission while nutritional neuromodulators utilize dietary constituents and naturally-derived substances to influence neurotransmission. Nutritional neuromodulators include various amino acids, standardized herbal extracts, vitamins and minerals, and phospholipid derivatives. Pharmaceutical and nutritional neuromodulators can be classified based on their function in the nervous system.

Five classes of neuromodulators include:

  • Reuptake inhibitors
  • Enzyme modulators
  • Receptor modifiers
  • Enzymatic cofactors
  • Neurotransmitter substrates

  • "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."
