Testing For Depression

Patient Says: I always feel moody and restless, and I can’t get enough sleep.

Neurotransmitter Test Says: You have low levels of serotonin and dopamine as well as an elevated level of glutamate.

Depression is often characterized as a chemical imbalance in the brain. However, the effects of depression can be felt emotionally, physically, and cognitively. The warning signs of depression can vary from person to person, but they are still important indicators when trying to help yourself or a loved one who may be suffering from depression. If you’ve noticed changes in mood that are very different from before, this could be an early indicator that something isn’t right. If more and more of your peers and family are noticing that you are becoming more and more irritated over the smallest things, this could be a sign of something more. However, being irritable can be normal – sometimes when there is a lot of stress in our lives, we tend to take it out on others.

Our experts at Trilogy Medical accurately test biomarkers and neurotransmitter levels to determine the physiological cause of your emotional and physical changes. Recurring and undiagnosed health conditions can be complicated. Patients may even experience similar symptoms but have completely different underlying conditions that make diagnosis difficult. But, there’s good news! The most complex health condition can be detected by testing a patient’s biomarkers. Diagnostic accuracy can be improved by testing neurotransmitter levels making treatment much more effective with the corrective diagnosis.

Depression Caused By Neurotransmitter Imbalance

Neurotransmitters are the chemicals that communicate information to the body and brain. Because neurotransmitters are functionally integrated with the body’s hormone and immune systems, imbalances to them can cause widespread health problems. Today’s most common and recurring health conditions are associated with neurotransmitter imbalances.

Following are symptoms indicating an imbalance:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep Disturbances & Insomnia
  • Adrenal Depletion
  • Sudden Weight Gain/Loss
  • Change In Appetite
  • Anxiousness & Irritability
  • Mental Decline In Memory, Attention & Concentration
  • Loss Of Interest
  • Inability To Enjoy Previously Enjoyed Activities.

Personalized Patient Care Cycle for Depression

Neurotransmitter imbalances often underlie the causes of a patient’s health condition. With specific lab tests, a detailed reading of a patient’s key biomarkers helps practitioners understand the specific imbalance so that personalized care can be administered.

  • Test — Measuring nervous, hormone, and immune system markers with lab tests provide the most accurate snapshot of a patient’s biomarkers.
  • Analyze — We analyze a patient’s biomarker readout from lab results.
  • Recommend — Based on a database of over 600,000 tests and patient history, product recommendations are made by our professional clinical staff.
  • Treat — Equipped with enhanced diagnostic accuracy, the patient is treated by our highly qualified practitioners.
  • Follow-up — Based on a “test, don’t guess” philosophy, dosing adjustments are made through re-testing. This enhances our patient’s therapy, making it more effective, and it confirms the effectiveness of our protocol.

    I am grateful to have Dr. Lester as my family’s doctor. For two and a half years I had infertility challenges. Through homeopathy, he guided my body to hormonal balance.

  • Pediatrician Referred Us to Dr. Lester When Antibiotics Failed

    My young twin boys had ear infections for 3 months that 4 courses of antibiotics did not help. My pediatrician suggested I see Dr. Lester for homeopathy treatment. I had remembered that my friend’s son had suffered from chronic ear infections years ago and she went to see Dr. Lester and was very pleased with the results. Dr. Lester’s treatment was brilliant. The ear infections cleared up and when my sons got sick again they did not get any repeat ear infections. His evaluation and course of treatment worked so well for them that we now use him in conjunction with our regular pediatrician. Our pediatrician was quite happy with the results as well. I would also like to add that his staff is very compassionate, friendly and professional and made a stressful situation more comfortable and smoother. I highly recommend Dr Lester, he is a wonderful doctor!!

  • Integrative Medicine for ADD

    I have suffered with ADD all my life.I came to see Dr. Lester about 3 years ago, a referral from a friend. During my first appointment I felt heard for the first time. He did some testing, and put me on a supplement regimen. Dr Lester uses Integrative medicine. I followed his regimen. It has been a slow process, but well worth it. Using more natural ingredients has made me a much healthier person. I am thrilled with the results. Dr. Lester really knows his business, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. If you want a better quality of life, Dr. Lester through integrative medicine is the one to see. He’s the best.
