CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...
StressStress is a really common complaint nowadays with our constantly busy lives meaning that there are a great many people out there that are feeling tired, lacking in motivation, can't sleep and then can't get up in the mornings, are apathetic, have an inability to concentrate and are generally exhausted.
The human body is designed to cope with stress so that we can get ourselves out of danger but we are not designed to live in a constant state of stress. The stress hormones cortisol and DHEA, produced by the adrenal glands, are supposed to work in balance with each other but in cases where people are stressed the hormone cortisol is raised while levels of DHEA are low. Low levels of DHEA have been associated with Alzheimer's disease, cancer, heart disease, auto-immune disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, obesity and decreased cognitive function as well as generally increasing the onset of aging.
