HOW DOES STRESS EFFECT MY BODY?

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.

HOW TO EVALUATE THE STRESS LEVELS?

Dr. Berger assesses stress levels in patients in LA and Beverly Hills 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 for the adrenals. Over time, the adrenal glands can become rested and begin to function better on their own.
