What Lies Beneath the Surface
Did you know we can test for causes that contribute to ongoing fatigue? The number one cause of energy imbalance lies in the adrenal glands. I like to describe these as our energetic bank account and nearly ALL of us have some imbalance in our adrenal glands. Years of working hard, stressful lives, sub-optimal sleep, excess sugar, alcohol & caffeine can lead to adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue is a catch-all for our modern lifestyle that contributes to symptoms of depression, weight gain, digestive disorders, PMS, low libido, infertility, insomnia, headaches, allergies, food intolerance, anxiety, diarrhea, constipation, diabetes, blood sugar crashes, fuzzy thinking, high and low blood pressure, dizziness, bags under the eyes, and so on. This is why our first step toward restoring your vitality is to treat the adrenal glands.
Via testing, we can assess the patterns of your adrenal imbalance to optimize repair. The testing comes as a kit and assesses several factors surrounding adrenal health: cortisol, DHEA, progesterone, insulin levels, gluten intolerance, and immune factors.
We can also test your neurotransmitters to fink key links to poor energy, weight gain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, ADD, OCD, bipolar, and eating disorders. Often these so-thought ‘mental’ conditions are really an imbalance in our biochemistry.
One may be treated for years using antidepressants and other medications without ever treating the cause of these symptoms and subjecting the body to many unpleasant side effects. For example, most depression is thought to originate from low serotonin, however it could be from low adrenal function, low epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine or genetic trouble with processing vitamin B12.
Neurotransmitters and mental imbalances are treatable using restoration via diet, amino acid therapies, nutrients, herbs, and detoxification. Get tested to speed up repair and restore to a deeper level any dysfunction in your biochemistry so you are on the fast track to vitality!
