5 Reasons for Retesting Neurotransmitters from a Patient Viewpoint


NeuroLab CARE packageMany patients feel like they’ve finally gotten answers for their health concerns after their Sanesco provider shares their first correlation analysis report and education (CARE) package with them. This CARE package includes their objective neurotransmitter results as well as explains how those results are contributing to their clinical complaints.

After receiving their CARE package, patients often say, “Why on Earth haven’t my other doctors ever done a test like this on me? Now I finally understand why I have been feeling this way. This test makes total sense to me.”

Patients are relieved to know that the reason for their health concerns stem from imbalances in neurotransmitters and hormones, and it’s not all in their heads. They are also happy to learn that, with targeted interventions, balance can be restored, helping them feel more like themselves than they have in a long time.

However, some patients choose to stop after the first test, and by doing so, short themselves out of feeling their best. Retesting your neurotransmitter levels has several benefits that help you achieve your health goals.

Benefits of Retesting Neurotransmitters

1) Further Personalize Your Treatment

The Sanesco clinical model recognizes that each person is unique. While the first test starts you on your personal path to health, each person’s response varies due to genetics and the stress around them.

When you check your progress, it allows your healthcare provider to adjust your personalized program, making it even more specific to your needs. It acts as a guidepost to keep you moving in the right direction.

2) Sense of Progress 

paths to progressSee how far you’ve come! When working towards any goal, it is beneficial to track progress. Health goals are no different. For example, if you set a goal of losing weight, you weigh yourself to see how close you are to your goal.

Retesting neurotransmitter and hormone levels tells you how much progress you’ve made toward nervous and hormone system balance and regaining your health. Additionally, seeing your progress helps you stick to your program.

3) Save Money by Avoiding Trial and Error

One of the big benefits of neurotransmitter and hormone testing is avoiding a one-size-fits all approach to your health. The one-size-fits-all approach is based on what works for most people. However, it often means trying one thing after another until you find the one that works best for you.

Neurotransmitter and hormone testing identify what will work for you right away, so you don’t spend money on trial and error. Retesting continues this trend with adjustments allowing your provider to determine when a product can be reduced or removed. That keeps you from spending money on what you don’t need. Retesting neurotransmitters will make sure you keep moving toward your health goals while saving you time and money.

4) Take Less Time to Reach Optimal Health

When you retest, your healthcare provider will help you to not waste time going down the wrong path. It can also help minimize the effects of stress you encounter.

Stress can deplete neurotransmitters and hormones, leading to imbalances. Unfortunately, stress doesn’t stop just because you’re taking targeted interventions. It can impede your progress, causing a “two steps forward, one step back” effect, or even reroute you to a path that doesn’t lead toward optimal health.

When your provider checks your progress, they can make changes to your personalized program that counteract the effects of stressors you’ve encountered. Retesting neurotransmitters helps make sure you stay on the most direct, and therefore shortest, path to optimal health.

5) Optimize Quality of Life

The initial neurotransmitter and hormone tests combined with the targeted therapies go a long way toward restoring health. However, stress is an unavoidable part of modern life. In short, achieving or maintaining your optimal quality of life without retesting is unlikely due to the impacts of stress.

Everyone’s Path to Optimal Health is Unique

Some people may only need a couple retests to reach their health goals. Others may need to retest more frequently. Your path will depend on the stressors in your life and the influence of your genetics. Regardless of the situation, retesting neurotransmitters is a critical aspect of maintaining your quality of life and should be considered as part of an annual check-up.

Feel better. Faster. For less.
