Ways to Measure - Substance Abuse

Many individuals struggling with substance abuse issues, whether it be drugs, alcohol, stimulants or others, may not realize that they could potentially have an imbalance of brain chemicals such as serotonin, dopamine, and GABA. These imbalances can lead to a disruption in the body's system and decrease overall health.

Did you know that there are supplements that can support your chemical pathways and in turn help your substance abuse issues? 5-HTP, an amino acid, is what your body uses to make serotonin from your diet. Amino Acids such as Tyrosine and DLPA provide support for the dopamine pathway. Theanine, Taurine, and GABA are other amino acids that can help optimize brain balance by supporting inhibitory neurotransmitters.

Did you know that there are tests that can assess the inefficiencies and imbalances of the brain chemicals thought to be an issue in those struggling with substance abuse issues?

Due to the far-reaching indications with these symptoms, we recommend that you take our personalized health quiz to determine what test kit will best help you based on your personal combination of symptoms.
