Stress Axis Disruption
Your body is designed to adapt to a stressful environment but it is ideally suited to manage temporary stress. Stress in today’s modern world can take many forms and tends to persist. Chronic stress has become a common factor in most long term conditions because it reduces your resilience through many mechanisms.
HPA axis (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) dysregulation is a scientific term that refers to a constellation of signs and symptoms including fatigue, sleep disturbance, poor exercise recovery and tolerance, low libido, brain fog, weakened immune function and reduced stress resilience. It is caused by many different aspects of the modern lifestlye including poor diet, sleep deprivation, chronic stress, too little or too much exercise, and inflammation. It affects nearly every cell and tissue. For this reason, it needs to be addressed in virtually every chronic illness in order for healing to occur.
The conventional approach overlooks these impacts on overall resilience in favour of specific diagnoses and their associated treatments.
We are trained to look deeper and identify signs and causes of HPA axis dysfunction. We then create a personalised approach to help you rebalance and recover.
