Yes, there is a simple test for adrenal dysfunction. Simply sucking on a cotton ball a multiple times throughout the day can give your doctor a window into your adrenal hormones, specifically cortisol and DHEA. These two hormones must be in a particular ratio and balance through out the day. If they are not, many symptoms occur and much damage can be done to your body. Most specifically, hormonal imbalances, leading to blood pressure changes, fatigue, aches, pains, PMS, severe menopause symptoms, thyroid dysfunction, irritable bowel syndromes, intestinal pains, and the list goes on. What would create adrenal dysfunction? The adrenal glands were made for the old "fight or flight" response, one which would have saved us from getting eaten by a lion, for example. Today, something as simple as being "cut off" by another driver evokes that response and our adrenal glands begin to wear out. If you think you need your adrenals checked, ask your chiropractor or doctor trained in functional medicine.

I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
