The Good, The Bad And The Ugly. Nutrient Test Interpretation

1 1


I learned a few things from a Functional Medicine nurse I visited with the other day.

The adrenal glands manufacture a substance called cortisol which helps the body deal with stress. On the day of my nutrient absorption test, I tested as not having the nutrients to build cortisol. My system was depressed having had to fight celiac disease for 30 years. This depressed was a physical thing. It didn't even consider any emotional trauma I was suffering. If you have celiac and are depressed, you may want to see if your adrenal glands are functioning properly. I received an herbal supplement to support my adrenal glands.

At home I looked up the benefits of cortisol. I found that it helps with water balance. Since, I once lost 30 lbs in a week, Swell noticeably, and sometimes have high blood pressure, I think this is the case. The nurse did too. They put me on an herbal formula to support the adrenal and they expect me to lose weight. I am just hoping that the stack of spring dresses, I recently purchased will still fit by springs arrival.

As a tribute to the Creator and great design, the small intestine and pancreas work together to break down food. The villi of the small intestine tell the pancreas to kick out enzymes when they are needed. Sad to say, my villi damage means that this is not happening. The damage is reversible. Thanks to God! I need to take pancreatic enzymes in the meanwhile to break down my food for me.
