The ability to handle stress plays a huge role in your health and well-being. In today’s world, there are a lot of unnatural stresses that the human body simply cannot handle after a certain point. When a person’s stress levels reach a breaking point, they can have issues with their immune system, inflammatory problems, and neurotransmitter imbalances. How we deal with stress plays a huge factor in its effect on the body, which for people who have problems coping, often results in negative symptoms including:
- Gastric ulcers
- Irritable bowel or poor digestion
- Feeling overwhelmed or out of control
By looking into the potential causes of stress, patients can find better ways to manage their symptoms and lead a more balanced lifestyle. By analyzing your neurotransmitter levels, your healthcare practitioner can also suggest targeted amino acid therapy to help manage your stress and reduce these unpleasant symptoms.
When the adrenal gland has sub-optimal function, a patient may experience adrenal fatigue. This condition often comes with:
- A strong dependence on caffeine
- Trouble waking up in the morning
- Weak immune system
- Weight gain
While adrenal fatigue is commonly identified as an endocrine disorder, the necessary treatment may require more than a focus on the adrenal gland itself. Often times, there are several other causes of adrenal fatigue. By examining the biochemical markers, we can assess the fatigue on multiple levels, ensuring that the treatment plan will have greater outcomes.
