Adrenal Gland Function Testing For Hormone Balance-Periods of intense or lengthy physical or emotional stress can cause the adrenal glands to become exhausted and weak. Then you can have a condition known as adrenal fatigue, or adrenal exhaustion when these glands become unable to meet your body's needs. Our method to test adrenal gland function is called Ragland's Test. This test can be done in several ways but uses the blood pressure to determine adrenal gland function.

Adrenal and Stress Suppliments-The adrenal glands are the stress glands of the body. When the environment is hostile to the body the reaction is to fight or run. Both these reactions cause the secretion of adrenal gland hormones. These glands, designed to prepare the body for a temporary emergency, can become exhausted and over reactive with prolonged environmental stresses.

Because the body under stress directs its effort to run or fight, the immune system is suppressed by cortisol when you are under stress. Research by teh National Institute  of Health found persons under stress are more susceptible to bacteria and viruses.

Your hormonal rhythm that leads to sleep is based on the secretion of the adrenal hormone cortisol. When your body is at risk it needs to stay awake to deal with it. With stress, cortisol levels alter which can cause abnormal sleep behavior.

Finally, these glands secrete DHEA, which is used to create the estrogen, progesterone and testosterone reserves in the body. Because of this, when long term stress causes problems with these glands, it can lead to PMS, menopausal symptoms, hormonal imbalances and a host of female problems.
