In this intriguing webinar, Tom Guilliams, PhD, explained why the facts and myths of cortisol, and told us why we should focus on brain signaling instead of adrenal health to understand cortisol dysregulation. Dr. Guilliams discussed the importance of updating our nomenclature around stress and the HPA-axis, and the value of adding HPA-axis therapies to patient care plans. You’ll hear why we should stop saying "Adrenal Fatigue" and how you can use diurnal cortisol measurements to help your patients suffering from chronic stress and fatigue.
