When it comes to brain and mood disorders, targeted nutritional therapies are proven to balance the levels of neurotransmitters and adrenal hormones. Our goal is to help our patients address mood disorders with safe, natural solutions — instead of side-effect-riddled prescription drugs.
After testing your levels of the various neurotransmitters and adrenal hormones through a convenient test kit you perform at home, we design a program just for you consisting of dietary constituents to help maintain normal neurotransmitter levels. Your test results will provide a comprehensive, yet easily understandable report from a medical professional at the DaSilva Institute detailing your laboratory findings. Your consultation can either be in person or on the phone. Your targeted nutritional treatment plan will be given to you during the consultation. Also included are diet and lifestyle recommendations to provide long-term solutions and a proactive approach to maintaining optimal health.
It is often recommended to combine this testing with an adrenal gland assessment which is completed through a four-point cortisol and two-point DHEA test (saliva collection) as these two systems are highly interdependent and the additional information assists the practitioner in ensuring a complete approach to help you recover and thrive.
