3 Misconceptions About Hidden Stressors

"My Labs Are Normal..."

They may be normal,

but are they optimal?

Standard lab tests typically don't look at signs of stress & inflammation... leaving you in the dark about your true risk. That's why at Functional Kidney Care, we go beyond standard lab tests to find out why your stress response is impaired... because there's many possible reasons you're currently feeling the way you do. Take the first step to reclaim your sanity, and take the short quiz!

Nutrient Deficiencies

Are nutrient deficiencies contributing to your stress?

When your body is low on key nutrients & vitamins, it can't function properly... lowering stress resilience. Sadly, most people don't realize they're nutrient deficient... which also messes with their sleep, thyroid function, and brain health – creating a negative stress feedback loop. Using an integrative approach, we always evaluate nutrient status so we can easily correct them with medical-grade supplementation.

Beyond Cortisol

Gut issues & stealth infections ramp up stress!

Inflammation is a major contributor to stress and it frequently starts in your gut! That's why constant digestive drama (such as heartburn & bloating), stealth infections and even food sensitivities oftentimes increase systemic inflammation... so we need to address those issues first before looking into more conventional options to help your body cope with stress & burnout.
