Nervous System, Stress & Cognition

Stress, anxiety, depression, memory and cognitive function, alzheimers and dementia

Are you feeling run down, fatigued, and concerned about burn out? Are you struggling to get out of bed in the morning, experiencing brain fog and energy crashes during the day, but by the time you go to bed you can’t fall asleep?

If so, these are all signs that you may need to consider support for your adrenal glands and nervous system.

The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of cortisol and other hormones implicated in the sleep and wake cycle (otherwise known as the circadian rhythm). If our adrenal glands have been overworked for too long, due to chronic stress, the circadian rhythm can become disrupted.

Stress also activates the sympathetic nervous system (aka fight or flight mode) and when chronic, this state of functioning can result in blood sugar or blood pressure imbalances, and digestive function issues, just to name a few. 
In a naturopathic appointment, we can coach you on effective stress management techniques, sleep hygiene practices, and an herbal and nutritional strategy to replenish your adrenal glands and nourish your nervous system.

If you need assistance with stress management, sleep quality and energy levels reach out to us today.
