Cognition and Mood

Cognition and Mood

Neurotransmitters are signaling compounds in the brain that exert control over the body’s functions, particularly the hormonal (endocrine) system. Other effects of neurotransmitters are controlling mood, memory, organ function (such as heart rate), and movement.

There are many instances where the delicate balance of this system

can be disturbed resulting in common conditions such:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Foggy thought
  • Hormonal imbalance

Many clinicians simply prescribe standard pharmaceutical therapy aimed at controlling symptoms

of dysfunction without addressing the underlying imbalance. While no doubt effective and sometimes

necessary, many of these treatments carry other unwanted side effects such as sedation, weight

gain and elevated prolactin levels leading to low testosterone, decreased libido, and other hormonal


Dr. Gizersky uses neurotransmitter testing to diagnose and address the underlying nervous system imbalances and nutraceutical supplementation to correct the underlying excess or deficiency of key neurotransmitters. Testing of neurotransmitters is performed through simple urine tests and interventions are based on your symptoms correlating with your results, which vary from person to person. Other tests may include saliva and blood as recommended by Dr. Gizersky.

These treatments are of great help to those with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s or Dementia or those

who have has a stroke. This program will also benefit people seeking to

sharpen their cognitive skills for improved performance in the workplace.

These treatments will also address insomnia through balancing of melatonin and circadian rhythm function for those who work odd-hour shifts or simply have trouble with sleep.
