The Adrenal Fatigue Saliva Test
Do you suffer from stress? Don’t know why you’re tired and fatigued most of the time? It may be an adrenal fatigue problem….
Adrenal fatigue is a condition that can result from imbalances in one or two important hormones, DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) and Cortisol that are responsible for controlling how you respond to stress. When one or both of these hormones becomes depleted that’s when fatigue or adrenal insufficiency can result.
The adrenal fatigue saliva test is the most accurate and powerful non invasive hormone test that helps you to discover the true levels of these important hormones and be able to take actions to resolve adrenal fatigue helping to reduce stress and resolve many other associated problems.
The test focuses on checking the levels of both DHEA and Cortisol to determine irregularities. The adrenal fatigue test uses your saliva to measure these important hormones which are laboratory verified and results are then checked by one of our professional health practitioners who provides the results and guidance on what to do with the results.
Do you have any of the signs of adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue can cause many different symptoms in your body and in many cases can cause serious harm if left unchecked. It’s important to check your adrenals if you have any of the following common symptoms:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Poor concentration, ‘brain fog’
- Energy levels
- Fatigue, lethargy, consistent tiredness
- Salt cravings
- Lack of stamina
- Sexual dysfunction
- Irregular sleeping patterns
- Thyroid dysfunction

About adrenal function, stress, adrenal problems and testing
The adrenal glans which are both located on top of your kidney’s belong to the hormonal system or endocrine system. Adrenal fatigue is a very common condition in today’s society through the physical and physiological demands we put on our adrenal glands. Each gland is composed of two distinct zones, the large outer cortex and the inner medulla.
The adrenal glans use two important hormones to help you control stress, these include DHEA and Cortisol which are used to maintain a healthy balance of stress response. Therefore the adrenal fatigue test is considered a “stress test”, this is because when a person experiences above average levels of stress the balances of these hormones can tell us if a person is in or at risk of fatigue or “burn out”. Understanding the true balances of these two hormones helps us to make educated decisions about how to restore good health and in many cases prevent more serious health problems.
In the case of adrenal fatigue or adrenal insufficiency, the adrenal glands run low of the balancing hormones and a loss of vital energy or “burn out” is experienced, often this condition cannot be resolved without first knowing the levels of DHEA and cortisol so that appropriate action can be taken to restore healthy function. This test can also be helpful in the discovery of other underlying health problems that may need attention.
Testing the hormones produced by the adrenal glands serves as a critical tool for uncovering biochemical imbalances underlying many of the above mentioned symptoms.
Many of the adrenal function problems of today are related to a stressful lifestyle, nutritional problems/imbalances, environmental toxicity and poor diet.
