Spend more of your valuable time with paying clients, rather than researching, writing, and marketing your content.
This researched and referenced 2,676-word article was created to build your expertise and authority by helping you:
  • Save 12 hours of work (that’s how long it took me to put it together from scratch to final, amazing product—yes, it’s really good!). Spend less time on content creation and more time finding and working with clients!
  • Earn expert status and build trust with your well-researched, professionally written and edited post because it’s fully backed up with references and is customizable to your voice and brand. Plus, it’s ghostwritten so YOU are the author!
  • Gain high-quality traffic when you share this with your email subscribers and social media followers.
  • Save $2,500 (that’s how much I would charge you if you wanted me to create this epic post just for you).
  • Stand out online because not only is this article customizable, but it’s for an exclusive group only. The sales are automatically capped at a maximum of 73 healthcare professionals. This means that, after the 73rd one is sold, no one else can ever buy this. Why does this matter? In today’s online world, epic, unique content is key. And, even though you can fully customize it, you still don’t want hundreds of other health and wellness professionals to have it. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018 there were 70,900 dietitians and nutritionists in the U.S. alone! That means that just one nutrition pro out of about 1,000 will be able to use this article! Not to mention the 50,300 chiropractors, 356,900 fitness trainers, etc. who could also benefit from publishing this article on the importance of neurotransmitters (but they won’t).

Mental Health: The Neurotransmitter Edition

Brain and mental health concerns affect a huge number of people. But, where does it all come from? Does it start, or continue, because of the way the brain and nervous system is working?

Some of it is genetic, passed down from our families. Some of it is triggered by stress and/or traumatic life events. Many times it seems to be related to “brain chemicals” called neurotransmitters. And, most likely, it’s a complex combination of many of these, plus other factors!

Today we’re talking neurotransmitters and their roles in mental health for stress and mood. Plus, I’ll let you in on what doesn’t work, as well as one major thing you can do to help to boost your brain health, mental health (and neurotransmitters)!

Subsections of the article:

  • Neuro-what? (Neurotransmitters)
  • How Neurotransmitters Work
  • Key Neurotransmitters
  • Key Neurotransmitter #1 – Serotonin (“happy”)
  • Key Neurotransmitter #2 – Norepinephrine (NE) (“alertness” and “stress”)
  • Key Neurotransmitter #3 – Dopamine (DA) (“motivation” and “behaviour”)
  • Neurotransmitters and Stress
  • Neurotransmitters and Mental Health
  • Foods, Supplements and your Neurotransmitters
  • Foods and Supplements for Serotonin?
  • Exercise for Brain and Mental Health
