SUBSTANCE ABUSE

Measurement Methods – Substance Abuse

Many people struggling with addiction issues, whether it’s 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 disruption of the body system and affect overall health.

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

Did you know that there are tests that can assess inefficiencies and imbalances of brain chemicals thought to be a problem in people struggling with substance abuse issues?
