Dr. Sachdev evaluates and manages both adults and children with Attention Deficit Disorder. She has a special interest in this area because her own family is affected by this condition. She does not see ADD/ADHD as a disorder, or deficiency, but as a different way of processing information. She is interested in helping her patients better understand their unique gifts, as well as their challenges.
Neurotransmitter Testing & Treatment
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that the nervous system uses to communicate. Neurotransmitters affect energy levels, metabolism, mood, sleep, and concentration. Imbalances in the nervous system can be caused by excessive stress, poor diet, toxins, medications, genetics, inflammation, alcohol, and caffeine use.
Neurotransmitter testing can provide insight to chronic health conditions and help to provide more natural and targeted treatments.
Many patients are concerned about the side effects of taking medications to alleviate common neurological complaints. Neurotransmitter testing and guided supplementation offer a more natural and functional approach to treating common illnesses and symptoms.
