.

The combination of a neurotransmitter and adrenal hormone profile provides measurements of 6 primary urinary neurotransmitters: Serotonin, GABA, Glutamate, Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Epinephrine as well as a companion related assessment being the salivary adrenal hormone profile which measures 4x cortisol readings throughout the day.

This profile assesses the six neurotransmitters that affect the hypothalamic-pituitary axis (HP) as well as the adrenal hormones cortisol and DHEA. Since the HPA axis initiates an adrenal response, this profile allows the practitioner to assess that response and make therapeutic decisions based on the information reported.
