Cortisol and Stress: How to Recover and Start Strong this Year!
It’s a new year! To begin our 2023 webinar series, Dr. Debbie Rice covers the nuances of assessing cortisol health and the HPA axis. She answers questions like: Where does cortisol come from? How does it affect inflammation and autoimmunity? How can patients change their lifestyles to improve their stress response?
The DUTCH Test offers a comprehensive review of HPA axis function, and we want to offer a guide through this webinar on how to best gather information on the stress response, and how this can influence our daily lives.
