Understanding Fatigue

Fatigue is a persistent feeling of tiredness that continues despite adequate rest. It impacts cognitive function and daily productivity, often accompanying conditions such as depression, stress, or hormonal imbalances affecting the adrenal gland (Source: Mayo Clinic).

Decoding Stress

Stress is the body’s natural response to challenges or threats, triggering a physiological reaction known as the “fight-or-flight” response. This involves the release of stress hormones like cortisol, leading to increased blood pressure, heightened alertness, and muscle tension. While acute stress can be beneficial, chronic stress from ongoing issues like work pressure, relationship difficulties, or life challenges can lead to serious health problems (Source: American Psychological Association).

Symptoms of Stress

Stress manifests in various ways, affecting individuals emotionally, physically, cognitively, and behaviorally. These symptoms can compound over time, leading to significant health issues if left untreated (Source: National Institute of Mental Health).

Emotional Symptoms:

  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Feelings of being overwhelmed
  • Difficulty relaxing
  • Low self-esteem, loneliness, and depression
  • Social withdrawal

Consequences of Long-Term Stress

Long-term exposure to stress can have profound effects on health, contributing to cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, irregular heart rhythms, and increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Stress also exacerbates mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, and can manifest in skin disorders such as acne and eczema (Source: Harvard Health Publishing).

Tailored Solutions, Just for You

At Vitality Medical & Wellness Center, we take a personalized approach to your well-being. Our saliva tests analyze hormone levels—like cortisol, testosterone, and estrogen—to pinpoint the root cause of your fatigue and stress. Armed with this knowledge, we craft customized treatment plans that may include targeted supplements and lifestyle tweaks tailored to fit seamlessly into your life.

Adrenal Fatigue Testing

Adrenal fatigue testing is vital as the adrenal glands secrete essential hormones such as cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone, which significantly impact your body’s ability to function properly. These hormones influence carbohydrate and fat utilization, energy conversion from fats and proteins, and cardiovascular and gastrointestinal functions. Overworked adrenal glands can lead to a range of health conditions from minor allergies to morbid obesity, as they produce key steroid hormones: cortisol for stress response and immune health, aldosterone for salt and water balance, and androgens for DHEA and testosterone production. Imbalances can affect the nervous and immune systems, body composition, blood sugar, and androgen levels. Testing helps determine if your symptoms are related to adrenal fatigue and is essential for achieving optimal health.

Saliva Testing

Saliva testing measures the levels of steroid hormones, including stress hormones like cortisol, through saliva samples, capturing only the hormones usable by our cells. This contrasts with blood tests that measure all hormones regardless of usability. Accurate hormone measurement helps diagnose biochemical imbalances, monitor treatment, and adjust dosages. Hormones tested include estrogen (treats menopausal symptoms), progesterone (enhances hormone balance post-menopause), testosterone (promotes stamina, mental focus, muscle strength), cortisol (necessary for energy production and stress response), and DHEA (essential for energy and disease prevention). Saliva testing is non-invasive, convenient for at-home use, cost-effective, and samples remain usable for up to two weeks, making it an important tool for maintaining hormonal health and ensuring precise treatment.

Shift Work Disorder Treatment

Shift Work Disorder occurs when individuals working overnight or alternating shifts experience disrupted circadian rhythms due to a lack of environmental time cues like sunrise and sunset. This can lead to various conditions, including inflammation, cardiovascular disease, cortisol issues, hormone imbalances, adrenal problems, and difficulty sleeping. Those living in cities that never sleep or working in 24/7 industries like firefighting, police, military, casinos, food service, healthcare, and transportation are particularly susceptible. Treatment at Vitality Medical and Wellness Center, involves saliva testing to create a customized supplement program.
