The most stressful time of the year?

Unfortunately, “the most wonderful time of the year” may become “the most stressful time of the year” for many people. Societal expectations, family obligations, job pressures, and economic hardship can result in stress, and if that stress is severe and chronic, it can result in Adrenal Dysfunction and ultimately lead to:

  • Mood disorders and depression
  • Increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dementia/memory loss
  • Sleep disorders
  • Insulin resistance/diabetes
  • Reproductive disorders
  • Premature aging

Ask our compounding pharmacist for more information about customized treatments for infertility and hormone-related problems.
