Adrenal Health


Our programs are designed to address adrenal fatigue and other causes of low energy, fatigue, or exhaustion so you can get your energy and your life back. 


What is adrenal fatigue?

Low energy, waking up tired after a full night's sleep, and experiencing a decreased ability to cope with stress may be signs of adrenal dysfunction commonly referred to as "adrenal fatigue."

Your adrenal glands are the part of your endocrine (hormone) system that are in charge of reacting to and regulating stress. They secrete a hormone called cortisol which is responsible for creating our fight-or-flight response to stress (lions, tigers, bears, and... that deadline your boss is really riding you about).

Our modern lifestyles are extremely taxing on our adrenals and as a result many people suffer from adrenal fatigue without realizing that their condition is completely treatable and they can get their energy (and their life) back.

Furthermore, many physicians do not recognize the need to support the adrenal glands in their patients when they do not see a low enough blood cortisol level to diagnose Addison's Disease (a life threatening level of cortisol insufficiency which needs to be treated in a hospital atmosphere until you are stable) and are not educated on the advanced tools and treatments available to diagnose and treat adrenal fatigue successfully.

How do I know if I have adrenal fatigue and what do I do about it?

Diagnosing adrenal fatigue can be done based on your symptoms or with the help of a laboratory test called an Adrenal Stress Index (ASI). An ASI will map your cortisol levels throughout the day so we can determine what stage of adrenal fatigue you're experiencing based on the pattern of your cortisol output. This gives us important information about your stress management, blood sugar regulation, and immune function so we can create a treatment plan specifically for your needs.

Adrenal fatigue can be treated successfully with nutrition and lifestyle management as well as targeted botanical medicines that regulate cortisol output and support proper adrenal function.
