Neurotransmitter Testing / Natural Supplements

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has experience with neurotransmitter testing to check the balance of certain brain chemistry (seratonin, GABA, etc.)? Is this a fairly accurate way to initially see what condition you are in?

I have found a naturopathic doctor in my area that offers this kind of testing, and it seems like a good first step.

Also, has anyone found success using supplements (aminos, etc.) to help tame anxiety issues, instead of just tranquilizers and other standard meds?

THANKS!
