At Clear Sky Medical we are specialized in putting your body back into balance so that you can feel stronger and look your best. Chemical imbalances from the thyroid and adrenal glands often cause physical symptoms such as weight gain and hair loss, however another important part of the system which affects your body system are the levels of neurotransmitters. Low or high levels of serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine and GABA affect not just your mood but many other parts of your body system. These four neurotransmitters are among over 100 which have been discovered in our system.
Symptoms of an imbalance in neurotransmitters may include:
- Eating disorders
- OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)
- SAD (seasonal affective disorder)
- Carbohydrate cravings
- Binge eating
- Digestive disorders
- Low libido
- Hyper vigilance
Diet and Neurotransmitters:
It’s important to properly test and diagnose neurotransmitter problems as taking the wrong supplements can lead to making the symptoms worse. Eating a proper diet is important for neurotransmitter health, that is why Clear Sky Medical uses an integration of its nutrition services and other services in the process of diagnosing and treating imbalances.
Alcohol, recreational and prescription drugs, nicotine, caffeine and bad diet can cause a depletion or excess in levels of neurotransmitters. For example eating carbohydrates without protein can cause tryptophan to enter your brain and boost serotonin and melatonin. As you can see what you eat is extremely important. In some cases just changing one’s diet can result in improved health, however in other cases supplements are required in addition to diet changes in order to balance levels neurotransmitters.
Talk to the experts at Clear Sky Medical and take back control of your body and life. In many cases we have helped people get off of expensive and unnecessary pharmaceuticals by doing a proper diagnosis and finding that diet or another factor was causing a variety of other health problems. When doctors are forced to rush they just treat symptoms with prescriptions, however at Clear Sky Medical we are dedicated to finding what is actually causing your symptoms and we engage in integrated solutions that target the actual source of your imbalances.
“For many years, other doctors had me on many medications and I had no control over side effects and weight gain. Dr. Meier took the time to look at blood tests and determined what medications I needed and what I needed to change. Due to her medical knowledge, perseverance and commitment in treating me, I learned what my body was going through and what I needed to do to get myself healthy. I lost a total of 90 pounds which included more exercise.
Dr. Meier not only improved my health, but has improved my looks through the use of Botox and Fillers. By the way, she is the only doctor I trust to do this.”
