Neurotransmitters and anxiety


The relation between Neurotransmitters and anxiety.








Neurotransmitters are endogenous signaling molecules that alter the behavior of neurons or effector cells. They stimulate or they calm. They relay signals between nerve cells (neurons). The brain uses neurotransmitters to trigger hormones to direct your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest. This way they are chemical messengers in the brain that also influence a person’s thoughts and feelings. They can affect mood, sleep, concentration, weight, and they can cause adverse symptoms when they are out of balance. The neurotransmitter levels can be depleted in many ways. Stress, poor diet, neurotoxins, genetic predisposition, drugs, including alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine usage can cause these levels to be out of optimal range.

The main neurotransmitter are dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and noradrenaline. When there is an asymmetry of serotonin and dopamine, a person can feel depressed or anxious.

The profession of a hypnotherapist (official license to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from that of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medication prescribed. Hypnotherapy is not a substitute for medical or psychiatric intervention where this is required.
