Neurotransmitter Balancing

Neuro Research [Hinz2015] reports that chronic diseases such as Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be benefited by balancing neurotransmitter levels in the body.

Dr. Weyrich has been trained in neurotransmitter balancing protocols, but has not treated Deep vein thrombosis using this technique.

Please see What is Neurotransmitter Balancing? for more information.
