We talk a lot about wellbeing at CHWB and the contributing factors that help shape our state of being – physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally – the basic tenants of who we are and why.
Research constantly edifies our understanding of how everything around us, including our environment and thoughts, inform our state of being in every capacity.

This research is important, in part, because it has the potential to shed light on many psychiatric conditions that could result in an approach to treatments with far more efficacy and producing more successful patient outcomes.
A Neurotransmitter Test Could Help
CHWB’s Dr. Adam Silberman, ND, stated, “Neurotransmitter tests can provide tremendous insight for targeted therapeutic intervention in addressing a multitude of mental health issues.”
