Mood, attention and sleep are vital components of everyone’s health. A slight imbalance may cause trouble getting out of bed, insomnia, chronic tiredness, anxieties, problems with finishing your tasks and thinking clearly. It can lead to memory loss, depression and lack of energy. These symptoms are always signs of underlying imbalances happening in the nervous system and other systems of the body as a whole.

Adrenocortex Stress Profile
The Adrenocortex Stress Profile is a convenient, noninvasive salivary assay that evaluates the bioactive levels and interrelationship of the body's important stress hormones, cortisol and DHEA. This profile serves as an insightful tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances that can be associated with anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, obesity, dysglycemia, and a host of other clinical conditions.
This profile measures the level of 9 urinary neurotransmitters. This test helps to determine neurotransmitter or chemical imbalances that lead to Neurotoxicity, memory impairment, depression, insomnia, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, chronic pain and migraine.
Most people have hundreds of toxic chemicals in their bodies. Toxins are in the food that we eat, the clothes that we wear, the cleaning products, soaps, and shampoos that we use every day. Many of these toxic chemicals can effect our hormone or neurologic systems. Additionally, toxins are often stored in fat, making it difficult to lose weight. By knowing what our bodies are contaminated with, we can make educated changes to our environment, our food choices, and our personal care products to begin the process of detoxification.
MTHFR is gene that essentially controls how properly this enzyme works. MTHFR is an enzyme responsible for converting 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate to the product 5-methyltetrahydrofolate - it is involved in the metabolism of folate and homocysteine. The product of the reaction catalyzed by MTHFR converts homocysteine (a potentially toxic amino acid) to methionine (a useful and necessary amino acid).
