One common underlying reason for depression & anxiety is an imbalance of the adrenal stress hormones, DHEA & cortisol. When these hormones are depleted or low due to chronic stress, we become depressed from the physical exhaustion that takes place.
Up and down moods throughout the day, as well as irritability, often reflect unstable cortisol levels. You may feel “wired and tired” from adrenal exhaustion, and get amped up and even anxious. Yet at the same time, you may also experience burnt out and down moments throughout the day, as the cortisol levels bounce up and down.
With a salivary adrenal stress test we can measure these hormones and correct any imbalance to create more energy, more stable moods and a general sense of well being that many of us have lost as we struggle with the impact of chronic stress.
