Review the stress response and the evidence-based approaches to the natural treatment of stress and anxiety.
Our ability to cope with stress depends largely on the complex interactions between components of our hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA axis). The adrenal cortex figures prominently in the manifestation of adrenal fatigue due to disregulation of the production of cortisol. Adrenal fatigue is not widely medically recognised, and lies somewhere between the underactivity of Addison’s disease and the overactivity of Cushing’s Disease, where cortisol levels lie at the extremes.
Historically, the adrenal glands have worked to keep us alive during times of stress such as attacks by wild animals and long winters accompanied by limited food availability. Modern-day stressors are often very different, but are incredibly persistent.
The effectiveness of ubiquinol for ameliorating sperm density, morphology and motility are incredibly promising.
