Dear Anon, stress is the trigger for many conditions that affect the normal functioning of the body. I am wondering if you have considered stress reduction techniques? We have a society that overloads their bodies with drugs when the body has the potential to respond nicely to many healing modalities that address the root causes of stress. I assume from your posting that you are going through either perimenopause or menopause. Hormonal changes will bring about many changes in your body and stress reduction techniques will help you transition into the next phase of your womanhood in a more healthy way. Cortisol levels can be tested very easily but learning they are high is not going to help unless you learn to lower this hormone. The best way to lower cortisol is by elevating your DHEA levels. You can try supplements of DHEA but I would recommend getting a coritsol level test done first. Also try tai-chi, yoga, meditation or breathing exercises to counteract the effects of stress and naturally lower your cortisol production.
