In functional medicine, the focus is to find the root cause of health issues to help patients achieve lasting recovery and relief from their symptoms. In cases of chronic stress, it is important to dig deeper into what stressors may be affecting the body. The four key stressors considered when assessing chronic stress patients are:
Mental and Emotional Stress, Glycemic Dysregulation, Inflammation & Poor Sleep.
Identifying which stressor(s) have the most impact on our patients’ health is the first step in reducing the significant physiological effects and consider nutritional support to further assist your patients in long-term stress recovery.
