April’s Stress Awareness focus couldn’t have come at a better time. While the daily stressors of life are difficult to manage in a normal climate, we are now facing the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has added a new level of stress to our daily lives, including more screen time, less social and human interaction, and the frustrations of the ever-changing messages we are receiving. Stress reduces our natural abilities to fight off infections, which gives viruses the opportunity to impact our health. Now, more than ever, it is critical that we focus on our nutritional health, physical health, hormonal health, sexual health, and mental health. At Enhanced Wellness Living our goal is to continue to support our patients and to be a source of reassurance, support, education, stress reduction, and wellness.
Enhanced Wellness Living clinic is offering Virtual Online Consultations, to continue to support our patients and to help keep your health and plans on track. To schedule your new patient consultation, wellness consultation, nutritional consultation, or any other appointment you may need please contact us at 601-724-7885, Info@EnhancedWellness.com, or the “Get Started” form, on our site.
Stress is a hormonal response in our bodies. It is our physical and emotional response to tension. While small amounts of stress are good for you, managing stress is crucial to your health and wellness. The impact of stress on our bodies can lead to chronic health issues including, a weakened immune system, lack of energy, fatigue and exhaustion, thyroid health issues, anxiety and depression, irritability and mood swings, insomnia and trouble sleeping, weight gain, belly fat, and difficulty losing weight, loss of memory, muscle and joint aches and pains, hypertension, heart disease, and more.
Resilence your ability to overcome and to maintain positive health, strength, and well-being in the face of adversity.
Throughout April we will provide stress-reducing support to our Enhanced Wellness Living community! We understand the challenges of coping with stress, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain, and have sustainable lifestyle improvement plans to help you reduce stress, feel better, and live a healthier life! We also offer Alpha-Stim for the treatment of anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic pain.
A few facts about stress:
*Small amounts of stress are healthy for our body
*Stress weakens our immune systems
*Cortisol is a hormone that is produced in our adrenal glands, released into our blood, and transported throughout our bodies. Cortisol works with your brain to control your mood and is known for fueling our “fight or flight” instincts. High levels of stress lead to higher levels of cortisol, which can lead to anxiety, depression, mood swings, trouble sleeping, difficulty breathing, headaches, weight gain, heart disease, high blood pressure, digestive and gut health challenges,
*Women tend to experience more stress than men
*55% of Americans report experiencing daily stress, which is higher than the world average of 35%
*83% of working Americans report suffering from work-related stress
*Americans aged 30-49 are the most stressed age group

Our April Lab Special ($125) allows you to check your stress levels conveniently from the safety and comfort of your own home! Your saliva test will be mailed right to you! Includes DHEA, Cortisol, 17-
DHEA Dehydroepiandrosterone is a hormone that is naturally produced in your body in the adrenal gland. DHEA supports the production of other hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. DHEA levels peak in early adulthood and taper off as we age.
Cortisol Cortisol is often called our “stress hormone” and fuels our “fight-or-flight” instincts. Cortisol impacts your mood, motivation, fear, as well a blood pressure, blood sugar, inflammation, sleep cycle, and energy. Too much stress and increased cortisol can cause anxiety, depression, heart disease, trouble sleeping, weight gain, headaches, and other diseases.
17-Hydroxyprogesterone 17-Hydroxyprogesterone is a steroid hormone that is naturally produced in your body as a part of the process of the production of the hormone cortisol. This endogenous progestogen hormone is related to progesterone. It is important to test these levels for monitoring congenital adrenal hyperplasia, which is an inherited condition that leads to decreased adrenal cortisol.
Insulin Insulin is a hormone produced in our pancreas which supports your body’s ability to use glucose (sugar) from carbohydrates in the food we eat for energy. Insulin helps to regulate your blood sugar levels and is important in the prevention of diabetes. Higher levels of insulin can lead to obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancers. Signs of insulin resistance include constant thirst or hunger, frequent urination, tingling in the hands or feed, exhaustion, weight gain, and more.
SIgA Secretory IgA is a biomarker that may reflect the impact of stress on your digestive immune system and the resilience of your immune response. SIgA levels can be negatively impacted by intestinal infections, food sensitivities, aging, antibiotics, medications, and stress. Low levels of SIgA can be the cause of the increased risk of infections and recurring infections, a weakened immune system, food intolerances and more.
