Serotonin and dopamine levels throughout the body are primarily controlled by the Organic Cation Transporters Type 2 (OCT-2)  which move these neurotransmitters and their amino acid precursors in and out of cells (including nerve cells known as neurons).

  When there is not enough serotonin and/or dopamine in the body the OCT-2 transporters can not do their job properly. This technology uses lab testing to analyze the status of these transporters then formulate a plan to establish serotonin and dopamine levels at levels that are optimal OCT-2 transporter function, optimal for health and optimal results involving manipulation of serotonin and/or catecholamines (serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).

This is not Urinary Neurotransmitter Testing which advocates baseline urinary neurotransmitter is required. Baseline testing is not valid! It is not reproducible from day-to-day. Reference 1  Urinary neurotransmitter testing and the baseline approach  has been scientifically discredited in peer-reviewed literature. Reference 2 Reference 3 We recommend and use urinary testing that includes “OCT-2 transporter analysis." It is reproducible and can accurately guide the physician in restoring neurotransmitter balance in the body. Reference 4 Reference 5 Reference 6 Reference 7
