Adrenal (Stress Test)
Adrenocortex Stress Profile test with CAR measures adrenal stress hormone imbalances. This involves collecting saliva samples throughout the day. This test provides direction for clinical intervention with targeted therapeutic treatments such as nutrient support and/or adaptogens, stress management, behavioural modification and lifestyle interventions.
The difference between stress we can handle, and stress that gets out of hand – stress vs. distress – marks the difference between adrenal balance and imbalance. The latter occurs when mental, physical or emotional stressors call our adrenal glands to action too often or in a sustained manner, which eventually may lead to adrenal fatigue. Cortisol’s main impact on the immune system is double-edged. Acute stress sends white blood cells to their battle stations to pump up our defences against disease. Chronic stress weakens immune reserves leaving us vulnerable to illness, inflammation, and any virus that comes along.
I have explored a lot of alternative mediums of healing and was fairly knowledgeable when I came across Sheetal. Even though I had tried multiple healing remedies, my health wasn't in a good place. Was going through hormonal imbalance, thyroid and PCOS, Fatigue, Acne, and persistent low energy.
Over time as I interacted with Sheetal, I realised the depth and amount of inferences she has about each and every symptom and how it is all correlated. The big and little changes she patiently helped me inculcate in my daily routine in addition to the Nutraceuticals and Herbs she put me on have brought a complete turnaround in my state.
After years, my acne has gone and I feel a gush of energy in me and my cycle has now stabilized. In my entire journey every time I faltered and fell back to my old patterns, Sheetal very patiently brought me back to track. And educated me gradually on how each of my upcoming symptoms appeared and what it was signifying.
I feel so grateful to have encountered the right way to live and all the knowledge Sheetal has imparted me over time - I feel richer and more confident of leading a good life now.
