|I know what you’re thinking,|
“Seriously? Am I stressed?
When am I not?!”
We all know stress is bad for us.
But, what exactly is going on in
our bodies when we are stressed?
Let’s get some basic info first.
If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of adrenal fatigue there are lab tests that can be done, such as a full thyroid and/or hormone panel, or testing of your cortisol levels. These tests are typically covered by insurance.
It is important to reduce your stress. Some things that may help are deep breathing, meditation, journaling, yoga, listening to music, or anything else you find relaxing and enjoyable. Make some time for yourself, your health depends on it!
If you find out that your thyroid or hormone levels are off it’s important to start getting them back on track right away. Dr. Nicole specializes in bio-identical hormones (as opposed to the synthetic ones) ad she could get you a prescription made especially for you.
Diet is an important factor in the body’s overall burden and inflammation. Supplements can be helpful too. Dr. Maggie has a wonderful supplement in the office for adrenal support.
