Are you tired and stressed? Do you have sleep issues and weight gain around the middle? Check your cortisol levels, and see if chronic stress is adding to your discomfort. Well, see how much of a problem it REALLY is so you are inspired to take action about it.
Conventional medicine doesn’t acknowledge that chronic stress can cause adrenal fatigue. It effects many people we have seen in practice, whether convention believes it or not. Our clients know what stress is doing to them, and how much of a problem it is. And Adderall is not the answer. We also see improvement in their symptoms when we support their body’s ability to cope with stress nutritionally, naturally, logically.
Conventional medicine will run cortisol testing sometimes, but they usually only test once during the day. Normal cortisol levels rise in the morning to wake you up, and decrease at night to let you fall asleep. You don’t know what it is doing during the rest of the day if you only test once. We use saliva testing to check four times during the day and get an idea of what your cortisol curve looks like.
