Fatigued? Our bodies are not made to withstand constant high levels of stress at work and at home. They respond to stress by producing cortisol (cortisone), a product of the adrenal glands. Constant high levels of stress can cause a condition known as adrenal fatigue.
Let Dr. Baughman get to the root of your problem. Baughman and Associates offers adrenal fatigue testing. This is a saliva test that looks at the level of cortisol in the body. For adrenal gland testing fill out our Consultation Form or call Toll Free: (888) 986-4669 or our Arizona Office (623) 977-0955 to get started.
Adrenal fatigue treatment is relatively simple. Lifestyle changes can be very effective for adrenal exhaustion such as:
- Relaxing Exercise
- Spiritual Life
- Frequent Short Vacations
- Daytime Naps
- Increased Relaxation
- Regular Meals
- More Sleep
- Stress Reduction
When simple lifestyle changes are not sufficient and adrenal function testing shows the glands just cannot keep up with the demand, more advanced methods are required.
Hormone balancing is dependent on good adrenal function.
How The Test Is Performed
Saliva and not blood is the only accurate way to check cortisol levels. Since glandular function varies during the day, saliva is collected four different times from waking to midnight to test cortisol levels.
Saliva is collected by you in the privacy of your home by swabbing the inside of your mouth at the designated time. It’s simple enough for anyone to collect themselves…besides, who wants to go to a lab at midnight?
