Welcome to the Evolution of Medicine podcast! This episode is the first installment in our series with Carrie Jones, ND, MPH and DUTCH Test. Dr. Carrie Jones is a force in the functional medicine community, a modern doc with a holistic approach who can appreciate the best of both medical practices. In her own words, she “helps hormonally challenged people feel less crazy” by using testing and her own extensive knowledge to help people understand their hormones so they can feel empowered to take control of their health. It was an energizing, educational 25 minutes, and I think you’ll really enjoy it.
In this episode, we dive into a cutting-edge topic: the cortisol awakening response (CAR). We discuss how it became the default test for assessing stress and how you can capitalize on this information in your practice. Highlights include:
Understanding the cortisol awakening response, and how it became the default test for assessing stress
How testing the cortisol awakening response answers the question, “How resilient are you?” and changes the conversation from testing for disease risk to testing for health opportunity
How the cortisol awakening response influences alertness and blood sugar management
Resources for getting up to speed on the cortisol awakening response and implementing this testing in your practice
And so much more!
