Let’s Start With the Problem

The “stress hormone” cortisol is essential for energy and health, but when it’s out of balance, you are, too. In an ideal world, cortisol levels are highest in the morning, helping us stay focused during the day and these gradually taper off through the afternoon and evening. But if you’re dragging through each day, even after plenty of sleep, it could be an indication of low morning cortisol. On the other hand, if you rarely sleep through the night or you’re dragging during familiar activities throughout your day, your cortisol is overachieving and spiking too early.

Work Toward Wellness

Before you can restore the vital balance of your body’s hormones, you must start with detailed assessment that offers real meaning. Measuring your cortisol level first thing in the morning helps indicate if your healthy cortisol pattern is disrupted. With this actionable information, you can take the necessary steps that can help you get your cortisol levels in check.
