Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States affecting 40 million Americans. Anxiety can be related to a neurotransmitter imbalance in your brain. There are four major neurotransmitters responsible for mood. In traditional treatment only one of those four is addressed. Addressing anxiety is extremely important because it is a warning sign that other neurodegeneration might be starting. Properly balanced neurotransmitters set us up for healthy brain function as we age. Other side-effects of balanced neurotransmitters include a stable mood and overall enjoyment of life.
