Adrenal Stress Index

Jenn Hartmann

Adrenal Stress Index is a saliva test to measure cortisol rhythm throughout the day to assess reasons for fatigue we experience, poor sleeping patterns, slowed muscle and joint tissue repair and healing process in the body both energy production and muscle/joint. A take home kit is given to the patient with labeled vials and instructions on performing the test. The kit is then sent out in the mail to the laboratory that will read the samples and give us a detailed report on the findings. We will then consult with our patients. We correlate these findings with the previously mentioned tests to determine the appropriate course of supplementation, changes to the diet etc.
