Are you feeling bloated, fatigued, hormonal, anxious or stressed?  You will be relieved to know that the solution is often quite straightforward.

Read on as I have good news for you on how you can resolve all of these bothersome symptoms.

The top 5 most common health complaints we see at Acubalance are:

1. Fatigue

  • Wired but tired
  • Not well rested upon waking
  • Afternoon crash
  • Lethargy all day
  • Brain fog

2. Digestive issues

  • Bloated
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Lower abdominal pain

3. Hormonal Issues

  • Infertility
  • Acne
  • Hair falling out
  • PMS
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding
  • Ovulatory disorders
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia

4. Anxiety or stress

5. Unwanted weight gain, especially around the waist

Those 5 main symptoms above often result from the same underlying cause; an adrenal imbalance.

When your adrenals are taxed over time it leads to an imbalance in the hypothalamus -> pituitary -> adrenal/ovarian axis.   This leads to inflammation, hormonal imbalances, digestive issues, and fatigue.   Please watch a video by Dr. Dan Kalish on Fighting Adrenal fatigue.

Testing for adrenal dysfunction is noninvasive and available at Acubalance.  It requires collecting 4 saliva samples throughout one day.  Based on your results we can determine what stage of adrenal imbalance you are in and then treat according to your stage using the Kalish Method for Adrenal fatigue (There are 3 stages).

The causes of adrenal fatigue usually result from your body trying to compensate from systemic inflammation resulting from any combination of:

1. Emotional stress

  • Death of loved one when you were young.
  • Rape or physical sexual abuse
  • Bad divorce
  • Alcoholic parents
  • Financial crisis


2. Dietary stress

  • Food sensitivities and allergies
  • Inflammatory diet (processed diet)


3. Pain and hidden inflammation

  • Chronic pain from injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Parasites
