Neurotransmitter Deficiencies:

ADD/ADHD - disturbance of the Dopamine, Norepinephrine, Epinephrine system. PEA is also an important neurotransmitter in focus.

Sleep disturbance - many factors that can influence, either too high excitatory neurotransmitters or too little inhibitory neurotransmitters. Low serotonin and therefore low melatonin are often associated with early morning awakening. Poor quality of sleep is often not diagnosed in those with fatigue, even though the patient may be getting enough hours of sleep.

Menopause and PMS - often associated with low serotonin state. Mood is affected because Estrogen helps the enzyme that converts 5 HTP to serotonin. During the premenstrual phase or menopause there is lower effective estrogen and therefore less serotonin.

Depression - more effective control of depression with specific amino acid therapy can be achieved by understanding the imbalances with testing. Depression can be low Serotonin, Low Dopamine, Low Epinephrine or any combination of these deficiencies.

Fatigue - Usually low excitatory neurotransmitters, and many times these are not as high due to stress of the adrenal glands which decreases epinephrine output.

Anxiety - imbalance of calming/inhibitory neurotransmitters with overabundance of stimulatory neurotramsmitters.
