Cortisol is not only our natural hormone that is produced in response to stress, but it is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Natural ZZZ's™ - This is a combination product of L-theanine, Jujube seed, passion flower, and valerian to be used one hour (2 capsules) before sleep. Melatonin - Melatonin is an important hormone in regulating sleep, circadian rhythm and the body's natural time clock.
Magnesium Glycinate - One of the most powerful relaxation minerals available and can help improve your sleep.
Our natural progesterone is not only an essential female hormone but also is a precursor in making cortisol.
Stress is an inevitable part of life, but when stress becomes out of proportion, it takes a toll on overall health. When we skip meals or fast too long between meals, our blood glucose drops and our body sustains our energy needs by elevating cortisol. The program also includes clinically-proven Nutraceutical™ supplements specifically formulated to stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce hunger cravings and stimulate fat loss. If there is unresolved inflammation, this creates excess demand for cortisol and causes havoc to hormone balance.


Sleep deprivation creates a tremendous level of stress on the body, and does not allow our bodies to naturally reset itself at night. The lab will evaluate total levels of cortisol and compare it to the proper diurnal rhythm (see sample chart below).
When the progesterone precursors are stolen into making primarily cortisol, there are less hormone precursors available for synthesizing of other important hormones, like DHEA.
Elevated cortisol interferes with the function of other essential hormones, and can result in insulin and thyroid resistance, estrogen imbalance, progesterone deficiencies, and even testosterone fluctuations. Identifying underlying sources of inflammation helps alleviate excessive cortisol release and overall stress demand on the body.
DHEA is our natural anti-aging hormone of the body that promotes adequate recovery and repair of the body. While cortisol is a vital hormone of the body, optimal levels are required to achieve health. If cortisol is excessively elevated at bedtime, this prevents us from being able to maintain quality sleep. Seeking counselors to help cope with major life stressors is often helpful in resolving this area of conflict.


Conventionally, most practitioners will give anti-depressants to help people overcome life stressors.
Cortisol gradually declines throughout the day and should be the lowest at night, preparing our bodies for sleep. Ultimately, when cortisol levels are balanced, there is less need for all of our other hormones.
Sleeping pills, like Ambien™, never allow for quality REM cycle sleep and are very addictive.
We recommend using natural sleep supplements, like melatonin and natural ZZZ's, which are much safer and have fewer side effects. Restoring hormone balance is the most effective therapy for attaining natural sleep patterns in the long-term.
