Neurotransmitters
& Your Health
5 Chronic
Conditions
Associated
with
Imbalances
Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers
that relay information within the brain and
throughout the body
Imbalances in
neurotransmitters
can cause the
brain & body to
be over- or under-
stimulated,
leading to
psychological
symptoms
Stress, diet,
toxins, drugs,
alcohol & nicotine
are just a few
factors that
can negatively
affect brain
function
5 conditions are commonly associated
with neurotransmitter imbalance
1. Anxiety &
Depression –
16 million US
adults have
had at least one
major depressive
episode or
experienced
depressive
symptoms
(NIMH 2014)
2. Insomnia –
Short-term
insomnia affects
up to 20% of
adults, while
chronic insomnia
(lasting over 3
months) affects
about 10%
3. Impulsivity –
Disorders like
OCD affect 3.3
million; the CDC
also reports 11%
of school-age kids
suffer from ADD,
while it affects 4%
of adults
4. Fatigue –
About 20% of
Americans claim
to have fatigue
intense enough
that it interferes
with living a
normal life
5. PMS / PMDD –
Severe PMS
affects 1 in 20
women; PMDD
(pre-menstrual
dysphoric disorder)
affects 5-8% of
menstruating
women
If you think your neurotransmitters may be out
of balance, there are steps you can take . . .
