At Unique Mind Care our focus is the brain. The brain has two systems, the electrical known as EEG and the chemical known as neurotransmitters. All treatment protocols at Unique Mind Care are designed to treat both systems simultaneously. By testing and treating the underlying issues in these two systems, we offer all of our patients a long-lasting solution to restore their quality of life without any medication and the uncomfortable side effects.

Known as the body’s messengers, neurotransmitters can have a major impact on your day-to-day quality of life. At Unique Mind Care, we offer neurotransmitter testing in Houston to identify the chemical imbalance in the brain and how it is impacting your brain health and ultimately destroying your quality of life.

Have you ever wondered if the key to improving your mental health was within the other functional health of your brain? As Houston’s premier brain health center, we have dedicated years of research to understanding how the body’s systems influence the brain. That’s why we offer an extensive intake and testing program, including a complete neurotransmitter assessment.

So much of what we experience physically, from feelings of calm or stress or even panic attacks and insomnia, can be the result of imbalances in the brain. These imbalances are influenced by neurotransmitters, which are proteins like serotonin, dopamine, and glutamate that belong to the nervous system. Testing neurotransmitters gives us the precise insight we need to understand the factors inside the brain that may be causing your anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders. After testing is complete, we provide a complete analysis of your test results. With these results a personalized nutraceutical protocol is designed to naturally address the chemical issues in your brain.

What is Neurotransmitter Testing?

Neurotransmitter testing is typically done on a patient’s blood, saliva, or urine sample. Since neurotransmitters belong to the nervous system, they can have a profound impact on our moods and thought patterns. Understanding the underlying causes of a mental health condition isn’t always straightforward, but testing neurotransmitter levels can provide accurate information that can make a major difference in your quality of life. For example, we have long known that lower serotonin levels can lead to depression. Understanding this can provide a roadmap for impactful treatment that doesn’t rely on medications and their unpleasant side effects.

What Are the Symptoms of Imbalanced Neurotransmitters?

Neurotransmitters are important for our physical and mental health and overall sense of well-being. There is a wide range of symptoms that can occur when they are out of balance, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Moodiness
  • Depression
  • Restlessness
  • Difficulty concentration
  • Fatigue
  • Weight problems

Imbalances in neurotransmitters can also lead to more serious mood disorders, such as obsessive compulsive disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Since neurotransmitters can have an extensive impact on our thoughts and moods, it’s important to test their levels to get a full understanding of your brain health and the factors that influence it.

How Does Neurotransmitter Testing Work?

At Unique Mind Care, neurotransmitter testing is just one of the methods of evaluating how your body’s physical systems are influencing the chemical and electrical systems in your brain. Every test we do is performed and analyzed by medical professionals and the results are included in a comprehensive report that our trained clinicians use to create your own treatment plan. Along with neurotransmitter testing, we also evaluate:

  • Micronutrients for your cellular health
  • Food sensitivity to reduce inflammation in your gut
  • Adrenals for your cortisol levels, which can lead to feelings of stress or anxiety
  • Methyl Folate
  • Heavy metals

As important as neurotransmitter testing is, it is just one of many other forms of patient evaluation we offer. Unique Mind Care has been the most advanced neurotechnology and neurofeedback provider in the Houston area for more than 30 years. Our patients undergo an in-depth battery of testing so we can understand the areas of the brain and body that need treatment, and we utilize the most advanced LORETA Neurofeedback techniques available. Our clinicians and clinical staff are trained and licensed at the highest level, and our patient care is directed by Dr. Nancy White, a founding member of the Neurofeedback and Neurotherapy industry in the United States.
