Stress Lab Test
Introductory & Focused Science-based
Program for Modifying Stress, Burnout, Fear and Resentments
A simple saliva test collected at 4 times over a
24 hour period can measure the changes of one of the most important stress-compensatng hormones in
the body, cortisol. Cortisol levels
reflect how your brain and body are responding to your life's stressors.
Abnormally high cortisol levels
(often caused by anxiety, fear and
chronic anger) suggest that stress modifying interventions such as exercise, psychotherapy and meditation as well as
some important nutrients are
needed to dampen down excess cortisol production.
Low cortisol suggests burnout, a more serious adrenal
dysfunction often due to the above
problems plus immune and toxic stress, and more intensive assistance is needed to support the adrenals.
Chronic stress and burnout as reflected
in the imbalances in cortisol levels
are associated with a wide array of medical disorders (heart attacks, autoimmune and cancer) and psychiatric
conditions, as well as
accelerated aging and chemical addiction.
Stress Program Includes:
Consultation with an Integrative/Functional Medicine Doctor (MD)
* Specialized In Depth Functional Laboratory Testing
(discovers underlying biochemical risk factors)
* Computer-Generated Analysis with Professional Interpretation
of Lab Tests
* Doctor Reviews Program
The Health and Wellness Program
is an all-inclusive program that offers individuals a way to determine their personal biochemical
blueprint through laboratory testing at CLIA certified labs. The program includes functional lab tests,
computerized interpretations and a customized plan tailored to the individual.
After enrolling in your personalized Health and Wellness
Program, the first step entails filling out a health history. Next, laboratory test kits will be sent directly to
your home. The kits will have instructions and the staff will help you complete the tests if you have any
questions. The testing samples (ie. hair, urine, blood, saliva) are then placed in the prepaid mailers and mailed
directly to the laboratory.
You will be notified
when the test results are completed (usually within 2 weeks), and you will receive a copy. The results are strictly
confidential. A teleconference interpretation consultation will be scheduled with one of our doctors to go over the
protocol point by point.
You can then decide to continue the program
as outlined or take the plan back to your own doctor.
