Step 1: Balance the Brain

NeuroFit Nutrition specializes in helping clients balance their brain using functional medicine protocols that address neurotransmitter imbalances and dysbiosis. 


The human brain is one of the most complex and profoundly intricate structures in the known universe!  Consisting of tens of billions of neurons, using chemical messengers called neurotransmitters, that decide when the heart beats, how deeply to breathe and when to digest.  Out of balance neurotransmitters have a direct effect on our mood, sleep, concentration, and weight fluctuations. It is estimated that over 85% of Americans have neurotransmitter levels that are unbalanced due to unmanaged stress, poor diet, genetics and chemical exposures.   


SEROTONIN inhibitory with a stable, calming effect on mood. 

GABA the most prevalent inhibitory neurotransmitter; generally found to be low in depression. 

DOPAMINE both excitatory and inhibitory; involved in focus, motivation and rewards.

NOREPINEPHRINE excitatory and associated with euphoria, hyperactivity and panic attacks.

EPINEPHRINE excitatory and released in “fight or flight” type stress situations. 

HISTAMINE excitatory and related to allergy and inflammation with links to depression.


The proteins we consume in our diet provide the amino acids our bodies convert to neurotransmitters. For instance, tyrosine upregulates the production of catecholamines, a group of neurotransmitters that includes dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine. Protocols that involve amino acid therapy can help to balance brain chemicals and other disease states.
