Learn Neurotransmitter Testing and Treatment in a One-Day CME Certification Course that covers GI “Leaky Gut” Biome Testing and Treatment together.
This highly advanced course is ideal for providers who already practice BHRT and/or Weight Loss and need additional information to help their most difficult patients. Neurotransmitter imbalances and GI Stress caused by poor diet and food intolerances are a leading barrier to weight loss and creator of persistent symptoms like fatigue, cravings, bloating, and even sleep disturbances. This course includes the latest evidence-based information on….
- Roles of GABA, Glutamate, Epinephrine, Norepinephrine, Dopamine and Acetylcholine in our system.
- How to test for the above neurotransmitters in urine
- Accurate Neurotransmitter questionnaire is provided to help you diagnose your patients most clinically significant deficiencies.
- The real “skinny” on Probiotics and “Leaky Gut” syndrome with testing and treatment protocols
- Printable treatment protocol and summary charts.
This testing and treatment can differentiate you from your competition in areas where there are an oversupply of BHRT or providers or Weight Loss clinics in your area.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you interested in our neurotransmitters crash course and “leaky gut” training? It’s important to know that our programs have been designed for medical professionals.
Overall, our “leaky gut” and neurotransmitter training course is open to doctors, including MDs and DOs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and more.
Other medical professionals can take our “leaky gut” and neurotransmitter crash course, including registered nurses who are in a proper practice situation under supervision.
Yes, they can! However, we have set strict criteria in these cases. Our neurotransmitter and “leaky gut” course is open to pharmacists who collaborate with MDs and DOs and need help to gain more knowledge or experience in treating neurotransmitter imbalances and GI stress.
It depends on the circumstances surrounding each case. However, it is essential to know that no course can alter the national and state legal scope of practice. Therefore, non-US providers should understand their countries’ requirements for procedures related to the nervous and endocrine systems before choosing our training program.
If you are a non-US medical provider and are interested in our neurotransmitter and “leaky gut” course, contact us through our email or chat box to evaluate your case and give you more information about suitable programs.
Our CME certification course covers GI “leaky gut” and biome testing. In addition, our educational program offers high-quality information on treatment options to improve related issues.
If you already practice BHRT and/or create weight loss programs for your patients, our course can give you the additional information you need to address the neurotransmitter imbalances and GI stress that often result from food intolerances and a poor diet.
Overall, our evidence-based course includes top-class information on the following topics:
- Roles of neurotransmitters in the nervous system, endocrine glands, and the whole body
- Definitions and more about neurotransmitters, such as GABA, Epinephrine, Dopamine, Glutamate, Acetylcholine, and Dopamine
- How to test neurotransmitters levels through urine
- How to make a proper diagnosis of neurotransmitter deficiencies through a comprehensive questionnaire
- The real “skinny” on Probiotics and “Leaky Gut” syndrome through efficient testing protocols and details on the best treatment options
- Printable treatment protocol
- Summary charts
- And more!
If you take our course, you can learn more about neurotransmitter testing and treatment in a shorter period compared to other programs available on the market.
However, since we offer FAST TRACK courses, you can be sure that our content is high-quality, comprehensive, and effective. Actually, you’ll get a CME certification after completing the training.
Additionally, we focus on testing and treatment options for neurotransmitter deficiencies to help you stand out from competitors in the field. In many locations, there’s an oversupply of BHRT and weight loss providers.
However, offering neurotransmitter testing will help you attract more patients and provide comprehensive services, showing that you truly understand the effects of stress on people’s delicate nervous and endocrine systems.
Neurotransmitters are, essentially, chemical messengers that carry important information from one part of the body to another (through the nerve cells) to function properly.
As a result, neurotransmitters have a major function in key body parts, including adrenal glands, which are controlled by the pituitary gland, parathyroid glands, and more.
This effect on important hormone-brewing glands means that neurotransmitter imbalances can result in serious health problems.
If a deficiency in neurotransmitters affects your thyroid and parathyroid glands, the throat secrete hormones that regulate metabolism and monitor calcium levels will be affected.
Likewise, if there are problems with the pituitary gland caused by deficiencies in neurotransmitters, the levels of the vital growth hormone will be altered.
The same is true if neurotransmitter imbalances affect the adrenal gland, which is responsible for producing steroid and “stress” hormones, such as adrenaline and norepinephrine.
In simple terms, the nervous system directs the endocrine system. If there are neurotransmitter imbalances, your hormones will be unbalanced, which can result in many health problems, including being overweight or obese, depression or anxiety, higher cholesterol levels, and more.
As such, learning how to test, detect, and treat neurotransmitter imbalances would add value to any healthcare provider’s practice, as it would demonstrate their extensive knowledge to address problems that can result in other medical complications.
Yes, you will! We know that there are three types of neurotransmitters, which transmit specific actions in their messages. These are:
- Excitatory neurotransmitters
- Inhibitory neurotransmitters
- Modulatory neurotransmitters
Excitatory neurotransmitters excite neurons, or nerve cells, causing them to send messages and transmit them to other cells. Glutamate, norepinephrine, and epinephrine fall into this category.
Inhibitory neurotransmitters block chemical messages, so they aren’t transmitted further to other cells. GABA, also known as gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter, as well as serotonin and glycine.
Modulatory neurotransmitters have an influence on the effects caused by other chemical messages. Essentially, they can adjust how cells communicate with each other while affecting many neurons at the same time.
Yes, you will! As mentioned, with our comprehensive course, you’ll learn everything you need to know about neurotransmitters, their effect on the body, where they’re produced within nervous systems, potential imbalances and related issues, treatments, and more.
Therefore, although we focus on testing and diagnosis, you’ll get information on the neurons that produce acetylcholine as their primary neurotransmitter.
Yes, you will! After completing our comprehensive Neurotransmitter and GI “Gut Biome/Leaky Gut” Testing and Treatment Course, you’ll earn a certification accredited by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the American Medical Association (AMA).
This course is acceptable by both entities for up to 8.0 prescribed credits.
