Using Amino Acid Therapy to Balance Neurotransmitters with Dr. Doni (Episode 99)

If you're feeling chronically tired, anxious, distracted, and/or having trouble with sleep – it could be that your neurotransmitters are out of balance!
If you're feeling chronically tired, anxious, distracted, and/or having trouble with sleep – it could be that your neurotransmitters are out of balance! Dr. Doni covers testing and then rebalancing your neurotransmitter levels with amino acids and other natural nutrients.

Neurotransmitters are messengers in the nervous system. They affect our mood, energy, focus and sleep. So if you are feeling tired, anxious, brain fog, distracted, and/or having trouble with sleep…it could your neurotransmitters!

Examples of neurotransmitters are serotonin, dopamine, GABA, norepinephrine and epinephrine. They can be categorized as calming or stimulating to the nervous system. Optimally we would have a balance of calming and stimulating.

When we are exposed to stress of various types, which we are as humans, then our nervous system and neurotransmitters respond to help us deal with the stress. And, depending on our genetics and stress exposure, our body metabolizes neurotransmitters uniquely. So one person may run out of serotonin faster than another person.

Our neurotransmitters are made from amino acids, which come from protein in our diet. If we run low on a certain neurotransmitter, we can take more of the precursor amino acid for that neurotransmitter to support the body to make more.

It is important, however, not to just guess what your neurotransmitter levels are. It is better to do a urine test, which is a specialty test I offer to my patients and in my programs, to measure your neurotransmitter levels. With that information, I can guide you on exactly which amino acids, and other nutrients, in what order and dose, to rebalance your neurotransmitter levels.

I explain all about neurotransmitters, how they get thrown off balance, and how to reoptimize them in my new book – Master Your Stress, Reset Your Heath – which you can order here: https://doctordoni.com/msrh/

And I offer supplements containing amino acids to rebalance your neurotransmitters in my supplements – Nature Empowered Nutritionals – available at https://drdonistore.com.

If you have been taking medications to address your mood, energy, sleep or focus, it is important to work with a practitioner like me to help you address your neurotransmitters effectively and successfully. I’ve been helping patients with this for over 20 years.
