In a way one can say that neurotransmitters and their
various actions through their receptors and subsequent intracellular
mechanisms are part of the biological substrate of everything that goes on
in the brain, and thus also in the mind which is emergent from what 
goes on in the brain. Neurotransmitter action is certainly also part of
the biological substrate of shamanic healing, because all psychosomatic
mechanisms involve at least some changes in neurotransmission to occur
at all.
  But this is a little like stating that phone lines are the substrate
of communicating by phone calls.
