Research shows that many aspects of modern life can negatively impact the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which plays a primary role in maintaining homeostasis. Chronic pain, persistent stress, environmental toxins, and altered microbiota are just a few examples of problems and exposures that can disrupt the finely tuned HPA axis. This can play a role in many of the signs/symptoms we hear from patients: insomnia, anxiety, depression, impaired cognition, increased susceptibility to infections, fatigue, etc.
In this webinar, Tieraona Low Dog, M.D. explores the numerous aspects of HPA dysregulation and the role for micronutrients and adaptogenic botanicals.
- Understand the systemic impact of HPA axis disruption and common clinical manifestations.
- Identify the underlying mechanisms of supplements purported to support the HPA axis.
- Differentiate the indications for adaptogens such as Ashwagandha, Holy Basil, Ginseng, Rhodiola and Bacopa, as well as the role of nervines in supporting adrenal health.
