Is Stress the underlying problem to your health concern?
Take the Stress Test…and see if stress is the missing piece of the puzzle!
When you are under stress your adrenal glands will produce additional cortisol, adrenaline and norepinephrine, your stress hormones.
The problem is that your adrenal glands can only produce so much of these hormones before they become depleted and exhausted…which is known as adrenal fatigue and exhaustion.
Common stressors that overwork the adrenal glands.
1. Loss of job or career change.
2. Death in the family.
3. Sick or dependent children or parents
4. Financial obligations.
5. Stressful relationships at home or work.
6. Always on the run.

Stress Test Results…
0 – 1 = Very good
Stress does not currently seem to be interfering with your health. However, everyone’s stress levels fluctuate.
2 – 3 = Possible Adrenal over-load
Stress could be an underlying problem to your health issues and could be overworking your adrenal glands, which could be throwing many other bodily functions out of balance.
4 or more = Likely Adrenal fatigue/Exhaustion
Stress is definitely depleting your adrenal glands and could definitely be at the root of your problem. Constant stress will throw your hormones, metabolism and chemical brain messengers out of balance and be the root cause of your health problem.
The definitive test to access adrenal fatigue is a 24-Hour Saliva Test that measures cortisol, DHEA, insulin and immune capabilities.

Important Note: If you are experiencing 6 or more symptoms, we highly recommend accessing adrenal function with the 24 Hour Saliva Test to determine how depleted and exhausted your adrenal glands may be.
Lab tests are helpful because they help determine how depleted or elevated certain levels are. This helps determine a more accurate dosage to follow – which gives us insight as to how long the recovery may take. Everyone’s level of stress is different – the length of time they have been fighting the problem, and how well you support your adrenals during recovery.
