Georgia’s Adrenal Fatigue Testing and Treatment Experts
The effect of stress on the body’s delicate rhythm is often behind symptoms like
Trouble Falling Asleep
Diminished Sexual Drive
… in addition to symptoms everyone attributes to “normal” aging, when we say “I’m just getting old”. Most of the time these are NOT normal.
Yet stress sells prescription drugs, and conventional medicine depends on the many stress symptoms to label patients as Depressive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Chronic Fatigue, Insomnia, Adult ADD, and Fibromyalgia while offering multiple drugs as “cures”. These prescriptions are expensive, often fail to relieve the symptoms, and lead to side effects. “Diseases” like Adult ADD, Fibromyalgia, Restless Leg, and Chronic Fatigue are really just “symptom descriptors” which have no known physiologic cause, yet have approved drugs for treatment. While the symptoms are all very real, their symptoms are also shared with Adrenal Fatigue. Even low sex drive correlates better with adrenal fatigue than with lower testosterone levels in our practice over the last decade.
There are over 5,000 citations in the literature regarding testing salivary cortisol. Salivary Cortisol may be the most reliable indicator of the link between chronic stress and the daily energy you feel as you proceed through the day. Our brain handles stress in a very primitive manner, causing us to fight, flee, or hide, with the latter happening in the face of chronic unrelenting stress. This is the most prominent stress in our daily 21st century lives. For more details, watch our video library on stress. You will never look at stress the same way in the future.
The New Image Stress Assessment begins by evaluating your stressors. Then customized testing is ordered including the salivary cortisol profile. We then work toward fixing your brain and adrenal’s (HPA axis) response to stress to recondition your body clock. This requires targeted therapies that guide your system to respond to stress differently, with less “hide” response. If a bear is not chasing you down daily, but your brain acts like you are because you are busy at work or with your kids, then your adrenal response, and energy can become blunted. Imbalances of Estradiol, Progesterone, Testosterone, and thyroid are fixed to finalize your initial treatment plan. We do this with Bio-Identical Medicine: replacing only what is missing and not using drugs or anything foreign to the body. This is how we have treated more Adrenals than anyone else in the last 15 years.
We always work to discover WHY you are foggy, sluggish, tired, and irritable. We always first look for stress-induced changes of your core physiology, and fix that FIRST before entertaining any medical diagnosis like insomnia or depression, or using drugs that are foreign to the body.
