Could unresolved stress be the cause for your ongoing fatigue, anxiety, mood swings & irritability, weight gain and sleep problems?
Find which hidden stressors (beyond work & family obligations) keep you in the "red zone"... and how constant overwhelm affects your health.
You may be overlooking hidden stressors like blood sugar imbalances, inadequate sleep or inflammation that wreck your health just as much as emotional stress...
Take this short quiz to find out which of the 4 key stressors are to blame!
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 Dr. Tracy McCarthy Functional Medicine, we go beyond standard lab tests to find out why your stress response is impaired... because there are many possible reasons you're currently feeling the way you do. Take the first step to reclaim your sanity, and take the short quiz!
When your brain 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 deficiencies with medical-grade supplementation.
Inflammation is a major contributor to stress and it frequently starts in your gut! Constant digestive issues (such as heartburn & bloating), stealth infections and even food sensitivities often increase systemic inflammation... so we need to address those issues first to help your body cope with stress & burnout.
