Mental Health Testing  

Mental Health Testing 

 

“Mental health problems don’t define who you are. They are something you experience. You walk in the rain and you feel the rain, but, importantly, YOU ARE NOT THE RAIN.” — Matt Haig

It can be totally frustrating and isolating to feel that your mental health is out of balance and you just cannot seem to find anything that helps, whether it be medication or meditation. This is where testing can be a game changer so you can get very specific with the neurotransmitters or supporting genetics influencing your mental health.

 

Common Conditions associated with imbalanced mental health:

  • Fatigue

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Anger/ aggression

  • Lack of motivation and energy

  • Mood swings

  • Poor memory

  • Hyperactivity

Neurotransmitter Profiles- Urine

The Neurotransmitter-Advanced Profile is a four point urine analyses test, assessing levels of twelve neurotransmitters which include: Serotonin, GABA, Dopamine, Noradrenaline, Adrenaline, Glutamate, ratio, PEA, Glycine, Histamine, DOPAC, HVA, VMA, and Normetanephrines.

These neurotransmitters communicate with one another in relation to their effects on mood disorders, hormones, sleep, glucose/insulin balance, pain perception, appetite, and cognitive function.

Adrenocortex Stress Profile Extensive- Saliva

The Adrenocortex hormone profile is a non-invasive saliva test that serves as a reliable marker of stress response and a critical tool for revealing adrenal imbalances. Lifestyle, physical and psychological stresses put constant demands on the adrenal glands. If they become depleted adrenal fatigue or insufficiency may be experienced.

Histamine Metabolism Profile- Blood 

Histamine is a biologically active amine which is involved in immune responses, the regulation of the gut and acts as a neurotransmitter. Imbalances of histamine have been implicated in allergies, schizophrenia, depression, anxiety, behavioural disorders and autism.

Histamine is most well-known for its involvement in allergic reactions, however it also acts as a neurotransmitter like serotonin and dopamine. Histamine is involved in the wake-sleep cycle and is required for arousal, alertness, learning and memory. It also regulates appetite, other neurotransmitters and the perception of pain.
