Could hidden stressors be the cause for high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, prediabetes or kidney issues?
Which hidden stressors (beyond work & family obligations) keep you in the "red zone"... and why that's causing constant overwhelm!
Why people miss hidden stressors like blood sugar imbalances, inadequate sleep or inflammation that wreck their health just as much as emotional stress...
Take this short quiz to find out which key stressors are to blame!
Standard lab tests typically don't look at signs of stress & inflammation... leaving you in the dark about your true risk. That's why at GrassRoots Functional Medicine, we go beyond standard lab tests to find out why your stress response is impaired... because there's many possible reasons you're currently feeling the way you do. Take the first step to reclaim your sanity, and take the short quiz!
When your body is low on key nutrients & vitamins, it can't function properly... lowering stress resilience. Sadly, most people don't realize they're nutrient deficient... which also messes with their sleep, thyroid function, and brain health – creating a negative stress feedback loop. Using an integrative approach, we always evaluate nutrient status so we can easily correct them with medical-grade supplementation.
Inflammation is a major contributor to stress and it frequently starts in your gut! That's why constant digestive drama (such as heartburn & bloating), stealth infections and even food sensitivities oftentimes increase systemic inflammation... so we need to address those issues first before looking into more conventional options to help your body cope with stress & burnout.
