Neuro/Adrenal Analysis

Your body needs a healthy balance of hormones in order to function at its best and for you to feel energized. One of the most important parts of your body for producing necessary hormones is your adrenal glands, which are found on top of each of your kidneys. These glands produce two crucial hormones for your body: Aldosterone and Cortisol.

Why Adrenal Hormones are Important

Aldosterone helps to balance the levels of potassium and sodium in your bloodstream which, in turn, regulates your blood pressure. Cortisol functions alongside the hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline, which are responsible for excitatory reactions in your body when responding to stress. Adrenal insufficiency, also called Addison’s Disease, leads to the adrenal glands not producing enough Aldosterone and Cortisol, wreaking havoc on your body.

Signs You Could Be Experiencing Adrenal Issues

Adrenal insufficiency can show itself in many ways, including experiencing extreme chronic fatigue, dizziness and fainting, gastrointestinal upset, irritability, muscle and joint pain, and depression. Interestingly enough, one distinct sign that can differentiate this issue from other problems is an unusually high craving for salty foods.

In some cases, the body can end up producing too much cortisol, resulting in similar symptoms as Adrenal insufficiency, but without the craving of salty foods and with high blood pressure. This condition is called Cushing Syndrome and can be the result of natural imbalances or from taking steroid drugs Other distinctive symptoms of this condition include weight gain in the upper body, purple stretch marks, and thinning skin that bruises easily.

Both of these conditions are serious and should be addressed right away when caught.

Neurotransmitter & Adrenal Gland Disorders

Neurotransmitters are the molecules that send messages within the brain to all areas of the body.  They are what communicate to all the organs, tissues, and muscles. When they are in balance, you feel good and your body functions optimally. If they are out of balance, you may experience:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Poor sleep
  • Difficulty waking up
  • Irritability
  • Mood swings
  • Unexplainable drowsiness

With today’s fast paced lifestyle we are constantly in a state of stress. Whether good or bad stress, it will affect the body the same and eventually leave us feeling exhausted.  Our bodies are marvelous machines that are meant to handle doses of stress by secreting hormones such as Cortisol and Epinephrine to help us survive a period of survival. Imagine a tiger chasing you, for example. Our adrenal glands would send out a surge of stress hormones to help us escape the tiger catching us. Now imagine how many times a day a tiger is chasing us. We are constantly running from appointment to appointment with no downtime. If our adrenal glands are out of balance you experience:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Muscle weakness
  • Salt cravings
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Low blood pressure
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Loss of appetite

We use a noninvasive testing process to quickly uncover the root cause of why you may be feeling the way you are. This test can be performed in the comfort of your own home.
