Adrenal Function Profile
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Modern Americans lead high-stress lifestyles. Between hectic schedules, technology overload, and near-constant stimulation, these high levels of stress take a toll on the body — specifically, the adrenal glands. These small glands located on top of each kidney release a variety of hormones and steroids into the body. Notably, the adrenals regulate metabolism, stress levels, and blood pressure.
An overload of stress, or prolonged, low-grade stress can compromise the proper function of the adrenal glands, and greatly impact the body. When adrenal reserves become depleted, adrenal fatigue can result. Due to the high-stress lifestyles we lead, adrenal fatigue is a problem estimated to impact more than 85% of all Americans. Conversely, living in a constant state of “fight-or-flight” can lead in too much adrenal output, resulting in anxiety or insomnia.

The Solution: Adrenal Function Profile
The most acute symptoms of compromised adrenal function are fatigue, anxiety and insomnia — all symptoms that result from the body’s struggle to properly regulate hormones. If you’ve experienced these symptoms, Nava’s advanced diagnostic panel — the Adrenal Function Profile — can be the key to uncovering whether poor adrenal function is the culprit.
One of the adrenal gland’s main functions is to release a hormone called cortisol. Cortisol levels rise and fall in a daily pattern: More cortisol when you wake up in the morning to get the body going, and less at night to allow the body to relax into sleep. To gauge the health of the adrenal glands, the Adrenal Function Profile involves collecting your saliva at four specific points throughout the day. With these saliva samples, we’re able to determine the stage and severity of adrenal dysfunction.
Treatment for Adrenal Dysfunction
If adrenal dysfunction is detected, Nava practitioners are then able to recommend specific treatments to help restore the health of your adrenals. Treatment plans are tailored to each client’s medical history, lifestyle, and needs, and typically include supplements (such as Nava’s Adrenal Support supplement), acupuncture, and even life coaching to address mental and emotional responses to stress or assist with lifestyle changes.
