What Is Neurotransmitter Imbalance?
Neurotransmitters are the brain chemicals that communicate information throughout our brain and body. They are chemical messengers that coordinate the transmission of signals from one nerve cell (neuron) to the next. Neurotransmitters can become depleted and out of balance in many ways. It is estimated that approximately 86% of Americans have suboptimal neurotransmitter levels. Stress, poor diet, neurotoxins, genetic predisposition, drugs (prescription and recreational), alcohol and caffeine usage can cause these levels to be out of optimal range. Symptoms resulting from these imbalances can include:
- Poor focus and attention (ADD)
- Low energy
- Weight issues and food cravings
- Lack of motivation
- Poor pain tolerance

Historically, primary care doctors and specialists have recommended prescription medicines to combat disorders caused by brain chemical imbalances. But these medications can permanently affect brain chemistry, lower sex drive, negatively impact liver health, and can also be addictive and difficult to wean from.
The good news is, there are usually natural remedies such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or herbs that can help restore proper balance.
Nava offers a revolutionary solution to neurotransmitter imbalances. Using a sample of urine collected in the morning, Nava’s Brain Chemistry Panel evaluates the levels of several key neurotransmitters, including serotonin, GABA, and dopamine. Once these levels are obtained, we can identify any deficiencies or imbalances that need to be corrected.
With the imbalances identified, Nava practitioners can offer customized, targeted solutions involving a precise combination of amino acids, vitamins or herbs. Relief from symptoms can often be achieved without needing prescription medication. In addition, Nava offers several additional therapies, such as acupuncture, massage therapy, and life coaching, that can complement the effectiveness of the amino acid regimen and provide synergistic benefits.
