The hidden blood test nuggets – Cortisol Hormone
Do you feel numb/meh/bleh and not like yourself and can’t be bothered with anything lately?
Have you been feeling so sluggish that you’re struggling to wake in the morning and could easily nap in the day?
You might think your stress hormone cortisol is super high, but I bet my bottom dollar it’s actually too low.
Low cortisol issues are massively overlooked because we generally assume cortisol is high ALL THE TIME.
But if tiredness and low moods are in the picture – then you may be looking at it all wrong.
This also means a lot of support & supplements to REDUCE cortisol are causing more harm than good.
How hasn’t this been flagged in your blood test results?
