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.

These pages are intended to provide information to those interested in psychotherapy with hypnotherapy. They are neither intended to replace psychotherapy nor a personal consultation, examination, or diagnosis by a licensed physician. I am not a medical doctor. I am specialized to help people with fears and anxiety disorders. The profession of a hypnotherapist (official permission to practice psychotherapy according to the HPG) is fundamentally different from the practice of a medical doctor. Medical diagnoses are not made, nor are promises of healing made or medications prescribed. A medical or psychiatric intervention, if necessary, is not to be replaced by hypnotherapeutic treatment under any circumstances.
