Adrenal Saliva Hormone Testing
The Adrenal Rhythm and Its Importance
The human adrenal glands do not secrete steroid hormones at a constant level throughout the day. The hormones are actually released in a cycle, with the highest value in the morning and the lowest value at night when functioning properly.

This 24-hour cycle is called the circadian rhythm and is depicted in Figure 1.

An abnormal adrenal rhythm can influence many functions of your body, some of which are described below.

  • Energy Production
  • Abnormal adrenal function can alter the ability of cells to produce energy for the activities of daily life.
  • Muscle and Joint Function
  • Abnormal adrenal rhythms are known to compromise tissue healing.
  • Bone Health
  • The adrenal rhythm determines how well we build bone.
  • Immune Health
  • Various immune cells (white blood cells) cycle in and out of the spleen and bone marrow.
  • Sleep Quality
  • Chronic lack of REM sleep can reduce your mental vitality, vigor and induce depression.
  • Skin Regeneration
  • A normal cortisol rhythm is essential for optimal skin health.
  • Thyroid Function
  • Hypothyroid symptoms such as fatigue and low body temperature are due to an adrenal maladaptation.
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
  • Simultaneous use of several therapies can help improve the debilitating effects of CFS.
  • Glycemic Dysregulation
  • Recurring exposure to high cortisol will impair insulin activity, and invariably lead to insulin resistance and beta-cell exhaustion (diabetes).
  • Allergies/Autoimmune Disorders
  • The findings of the ASI™ help identify clients with autoimmune diseases and adrenal problems who can benefit from cortisol supplements.
  • Depression/ADD
  • The anomalous cortisol findings in depression and ADD can be diagnosed successfully with the ASI™. Subsequent interventions to rectify the time-specific cortisol elevations (during the day or night) are usually effective when applied under proper supervision.
