Stress is a physical and emotional reaction that can have positive or negative effects. Healthy stress stimulates hormones that give you extra energy and endurance.
Your heart beats faster and your muscles tense. These normal body reactions help you focus concentration and other bodily functions in order to prepare for a challenge. Afterward, your body normally relaxes. You may even feel an emotional charge after meeting a stressful challenge.
The negative effects of stress occur when the pressures of life are so constant, or so great, that your body has inadequate time to recover. Your adrenal glands give you the capacity to perform and to adapt flexibly to daily demands. But like any gland or organ in your body, there’s a limit to how much the adrenals can withstand. After a certain point, they begin to weaken and affect your health in very serious ways. Without adequately functioning adrenal glands, many people experience migraine headaches, back pain, ulcers, and sometimes cancer. Studies show that stress can even weaken the immune system.
Symptoms of adrenal gland exhaustion can be difficult to pinpoint, and are often missed by doctors. The most common descriptions from patients are an overall sense of being unwell for an extended period of time, and feeling “dead on their feet”.

Dr. Berger assesses stress levels in patients based on a simple saliva test that measures deficiencies of free cortisol and DHEA. By supplying safe doses of cortisol and DHEA to a body deficient in these essential hormones, an individual may begin to feel normal again, with strength and mental powers returning.
This “borrowed” health enables you to manage stress, and any other ailments you may be battling more effectively. This, in turn, eases the demand on the adrenals. Over time, the adrenal glands can become rested and begin to function better on their own.
The staff at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute will carefully monitor you, and administer the proper doses hormone supplements.
However, much of your success will depend upon stress management. Lifestyle changes are an inherent part of bringing your body to a state of optimal wellness. Each person is different, but when you are ready you will be safely weaned from the supplements to allow your body to naturally process stress factors once again.
