Stress and Fatigue Testing and Treatments in Georgia
Optimum Health Rehab’s integrative approach to healing can help alleviate the symptoms and physiological damage that prolonged stress can cause. We utilize accurate, detail-oriented panels to test for a variety of potential imbalances or negative reactions that may be contributing to your stress and fatigue. Our wellness experts then work with you to develop meaningful and realistic management strategies that can help you take control of your stress.
What Causes Stress?
If you are like many Georgia residents stuck in a cycle of stress, you could be suffering from adrenal dysfunction or adrenal “burnout”. Prolonged stress can take a toll on your overall health, affect your relationships, and decrease your quality of life.
The nearly constant pressure many parents and workers experience in their everyday lives has the potential to disrupt their natural fight or flight response, potentially leading to an array of symptoms.
Stress and fatigue aren’t solely derived from workplaces, responsibilities at home, or personal struggles. Although your responsibilities in day-to-day life play a significant role in your stress and fatigue, they aren’t the only potential culprit.
Seemingly unrelated systems in the body can have far-reaching effects when there are underlying issues. While our doctors will certainly take into account your lifestyle and the unique factors that lead to stress in your life, we’ll also perform panels and diagnostics to determine if imbalances or underlying health conditions may be contributing to your chronic stress or fatigue.
Diagnosing Stress and Fatigue and Developing a Treatment Plan
Adrenal stress testing frequently involves taking saliva samples four times in a 24-hour period to check where your cortisol levels are at throughout the day. It will allow us to measure and identify:
- Cortisol Rhythm – Stress Response
- Insulin – Blood Sugar Adaptation
- DHEA/DHEA-S – Stress Adaptation
- Secretory IgA – Immunity Function
- 17-OH Progesterone – Adrenal Reserve
- Gluten Antibodies – Grain Intolerance
Once your cortisol levels are established, we can work with you on both medical interventions and lifestyle changes that can help rebalance your cortisol levels.
Some of our treatments may include customized supplementation protocols to rebalance your adrenal gland and better manage your daily stress. We’ll also take the time to speak with you and learn about your sleep patterns and lifestyle.
We may also test your hormone levels, which can also influence the stress and fatigue symptoms you may be experiencing.
