A stress test: NeuroSpot

Battery drained? Exhausted? Are you stressed out?

Are you under stress? Everyone has experienced stress at some point. The phrase "stress" is frequently used interchangeably with "extremely busy" or "I don't have any time right now." This condition often lasts only a brief period of time. If the body is given enough time to recover thereafter, there are no negative effects. The temporary state of alert our bodies feel, however, could grow into a chronic state of alarm if this state persists and is even emphasised by additional stress causes.

Chronic stress does not have a single source or symptom. It is virtually always a unique combination of several circumstances.


When the body is under stress, it is on high alert. If this chronic stress period for a longer amount of time, a constant state of high alert is created, which can result in a variety of symptoms.


Chronic stress can have different causes:

Acute and chronic infections:

  • Frequent colds

  • Recurring urinary tract infections

Physical exhaustion:

  • Working long hours on the job

  • Excessive ambition and "strengthy" training are common in sports.

Environmental impacts:

  • Noise

  • Darkness

  • Environmental poisons


  • Pain

  • Heat or cold

  • Night work / shift work


  • Unresolved conflicts

  • Anxiety

  • Deadline pressure

  • Loss of a loved one


The brain initiates the biochemical and physical stress mechanisms. As a result, many of those affected experience the sensation that something isn't quite right in their head. It is simply a matter of the body's operational readiness and the continuous release of messenger substances such as adrenaline, noradrenaline, serotonin, and cortisol that was generated.

The good news is that the presence of these messenger substances in the body can be determined with a simple urine and saliva test (NeuroSpot). With the results of the two tests, the balance can be restored.

The messenger substance building blocks must be absorbed along with the food. As a result, an individually tailored healthy diet and naturopathic treatment can be a successful treatment.


The Stress-O-Meter gives you an initial indication of how much juice is left in your battery. A subsequent NeuroSpot test, which consists of a simple urine and saliva test, shows you how to recharge your battery.

The Stress-O-Meter is only intended to assist you in determining your stress level.The outcome is only an indication and should not be used to replace a medical diagnosis.

How much juice is left in your battery?

I'm trying to focus on one thing, but all of a sudden I'm thinking about other things

I frequently forget something while having a very well-planned day.

Although we used to travel together in the past, I haven't wanted to catch up with my buddies in a while

I frequently wonder how I will manage to do everything.

Although I enjoy spending time with my partner, I am no longer interested in sex.

I frequently wonder what other people think of me.

Sometimes I feel dejected and sad, although I did not have any negative experience.

Most of the time, I do not sleep well.

Currently, I am feeling insecure and have a difficult time making decisions.

I used to be able to "tune out" when I was engaging in sports, but I can't seem to get myself to do so now.

When even a seemingly unimportant thing does not go as planned, I become instantly concerned.

Stress-O-Meter results

You have only correctly responded to 3 questions. Your findings suggest that the state of stress was rather transient. Despite this, you should discuss the outcome with your therapist and start taking better care of yourself again.

You have selected "Yes" for more than 4 questions. Your conclusion is supported by your result: You have a high degree of stress. You can find out which messenger substances are out of balance by taking a NeuroSpot test.


With just one urine and saliva test, the NeuroSpot tests allow you to identify the amount of stress your body is currently under. Your body is checked for the key stress hormones and the involved messenger chemicals.

You may do the test quite quickly, even at home, thanks to the proprietary DrySpot technology. Ask your therapist which version of NeuroSpotBasis or NeuroSpotPlus is ideal for you during a private conversation.

The NeuroSpot tests examine the following stress hormones and messenger substances:

Serotonin – mood messenger / happiness hormone

Dopamine – boosts concentration and motivation

Noradrenaline – steering mental alertness

Adrenaline – performance and stress hormone

GABA – the body‘s natural sedative

Glutamate – natural stimulant and brain detoxifier

DHEA – youth hormone

Cortisol – activity and stress hormone


Serotonin mood messenger / happiness hormone

The brain's major messenger chemical, serotonin, popularly known as the "happy hormone," is produced mostly in the central nervous system.

Our emotions are mostly controlled by serotonin. It improves mood and regulates motivation by working with adrenaline and dopamine. Moreover, it has a calming, sleep-inducing, and anti-depressant impact. Moreover, it has a role in controlling pain sensitivity and the sensation of satiety. Serotonin also affects vital gastrointestinal processes, including the absorption of nutrients through the intestines.

Lack of serotonin:

» Anxiety

» Lack of drive

» Depression

» Increased sensitivity to pain

» Exhaustion

» Eating disorders with weight gain

» Fibromyalgia

» Difficulty concentrating

» Migraine

» Difficulty sleeping

» Disquiet / nervousness

» Dyspepsia

Excess of serotonin:

» Very rarely

DOPAMINe boosts concentration and motivation

In the brain, dopamine is one of the most crucial messenger molecules. The main way that dopamine works is to stimulate. It is particularly important for mental performance and focus as well as for mobility, memory, and learning. It also governs the so-called reward system, which affects drive and motivation, and works in conjunction with serotonin to raise mood.

Lack of dopamine:

» Lack of drive

» Movement disorders

» Depression

» Eating disorders (attacks of ravenous hunger)

» Difficulty concentrating

» Parkinson‘s disease

» Loss of motivation

» Muscle weakness

» Addiction problems

» Daytime fatigue

» Forgetfulness

» Diminished libido

Excess of dopamine:

» Problems concentrating

» Mental illnesses (schizophrenia)

» Restlessness

» Difficulty sleeping

» Daytime fatigue

» Inability to recover

» Dyspepsia

Noradrenaline steering mental alertness

Noradrenaline has the ability to raise heart rate, blood pressure, alertness, focus, readiness to work, motivation, and motor abilities. It also participates in the regulation of several hormones.

Lack of noradrenaline:

» Lack of drive

» Lack of energy

» Impaired sensitivity to pain

» Difficulty concentrating

» Depressive state

Excess of noradrenaline:

» Symptoms of anxiety

» High blood pressure

» Hyperactivity

ADRENALINe performance and stress hormone

The body may respond to heightened demands thanks to adrenaline. The body receives more oxygen as a result of the increased respiratory volume, blood pressure, and pulse rate; it also improves focus and overall mental activity as well as motivation and willingness to work.

The metabolic activity is also increased, ensuring that the muscles and the brain have access to more energy very rapidly.Yet, it prevents digestion and sexual activity.

Lack of adrenaline:

» Fatigue with strong urge to sleep, all the way to extreme exhaustion

» Lack of drive

» Depressive state

» Cardiac arrhythmia

» Difficulty concentrating

» Blood pressure is too low

» Difficulties in losing weight

Excess of adrenaline:

» Difficulty sleeping

» Disquiet

» Anxiety

GABA the body‘s natural sedative

GABA is a key player in the stress response. As it affects the level of stress hormones, it has a relaxing effect. GABA is additionally crucial for memory and learning. It reduces sensory overload and has calming, sedative, sleep-inducing, pain-relieving, antispasmodic, and blood pressure-stabilizing effects.

Lack of GABA:

» Anxiety

» High blood pressure

» Chronic pain

» Depression

» Epilepsy

» Sugar cravings

» Racing heart

» Muscular tensions

» Night sweat


» Restlessness

» Numbness

» Tinnitus

» Difficulty sleeping

» Forgetfulness

A surplus of GABA

When other messenger substances are overactive, as happens under prolonged stress, an elevated level of GABA primarily acts as a counteracting agent. This is how the body tries the counterbalance or at least lessen the impact of the higher stress hormones.

GLUTAMATe natural stimulant and brain detoxifier

Several foods contain glutamate, which enhances their flavour. It is also frequently employed as a flavour enhancer in commercially prepared meals and spices, where it is utilised in dosages that are several times higher than in naturally occurring foods. The glutamate absorbed with food does not, however, make it to the brain.

The messenger substance in the brain made of glucose and glutamic acid is what we are discussing below rather than glutamate found in food. In the brain, glutamate serves a variety of critical roles. It is crucial for the brain's demanding functions, such learning and memory, for intentional, controlled motions, as well as for the brain's capacity to sense the environment and adapt to it. Furthermore, glutamate takes part in metabolic processes that rid the brain of potentially harmful ammonia.

Lack of glutamate:

» Fatigue and exhaustion

» Schizophrenia

» Perceptual disturbances

Excess of glutamate:

» Anxiety

» Brain cell degradation

» Epilepsy

» Hyperactivity

» Cramps

» Parkinson‘s disease and other dementia illnesses

» Depressive state

» Disquiet

DHEA Youth hormone

The "Anti-Aging hormone" is another name for DHEA. Cholesterol is used to make DHEA, mostly in the adrenal gland. From the age of 25 on, DHEA production gradually diminishes as we age. Which is why it is so accurate to estimate a person's biological age from their DHEA level. In addition, DHEA serves as a precursor for the sex hormones oestrogen and testosterone. Directly opposing cortisol, DHEA balances the stress response brought on by cortisol and aids in coping with stress.

Lack of DHEA:

» Diminished ability to deal with stress

» Enhances the effect of cortisol

» Malaises

» Depression

» Learning difficulties

» Forgetfulness

» Lack of sex hormones

» Menopause/andropause complaints

Excess of DHEA:

» No negative symptoms

In a private conversation with you, your therapist can decide whether NeuroSpot Basis or NeuroSpot Plus is the version that is most appropriate for you.

Cortisol Activity and stress hormone

The stress hormone, cortisol, has a broad impact on how the body responds to stimuli. The ability of cortisol to stimulate metabolism and release stored energy is one of its key functions.

Lack of cortisol:

» Problems concentrating

» Lack of energy

» Addison‘s disease

» Passivity and apathy

» Difficulty to get up in the morning and become really awake

» constant fatigue, despite sufficient sleep

» Forgetfulness

» Sugar cravings

» Diminished ability to deal with acute stress

Excess of cortisol:

» Tensenes

» High blood pressue

» Increased cholesterol levels

» Susceptibility to infection

» Difficulty sleeping

» Disorder of the metabolism with over weight

» Increased belly fat
