The Adrenal Stress Test measures your response to stress.
Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your body. It disrupts your metabolism and can contribute to neurological conditions, GI issues, and hormone imbalance. Not to mention weight gain. Stress interferes with your sleep-wake cycle.
Cortisol is a hormone released during stress and DHEA is released to d-stress. Increased cortisol:DHEA ratio reflects a state of “emergency” versus a state of “repair and relax.” Assessing the balance and ratio of these two hormones provides insight into how the body is handling and responding to stress. Evaluating your cortisol:DHEA ratio can help identify changes in hormone patterns as a response to stress. From there the results you will be able to integrate intervention techniques via diet and lifestyle changes.
