The Adrenal Stress Profile is a measure of an individual's response to stress. It is also an important tool for pointing to adrenal imbalances that may be impacting a patient's health. Cortisol x 4; DHEAs x2.

Stress is a major underlying cause of many chronic illnesses, from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to food and environmental allergy. A stressful lifestyle can lead to consistently high levels of cortisol and low levels of DHEA (dehydoepiandosterone), which can be damaging to the brain and other tissues. Cortisol elevation also impacts immune responses, such as secretory IgA (sIgA) and antigliadin antibody (AGA) production.
