Show Notes

In today’s episode of The Real Food Reel Elly and I discuss adrenal hormone profiling and how getting to know your adrenals could be the missing piece to your health puzzle. We explore the benefits of cortisol and what a normal adrenal function graph should look like, and why we don’t use the term ‘adrenal fatigue’. We discuss the impact of stress and what happens if we ‘burn the candle at both ends’ for too long. You will learn how to test your cortisol levels, what is a cortisol pouch, and the symptoms, causes and treatments for both high and low cortisol.
