Cortisol Overload: Signs, Symptoms and Solutions With Marcelle Pick | ES153

Have you ever felt overwhelmed and that no matter how hard you try, you just can’t shake the feeling of being stressed out? It’s possible that you are stuck in a vicious cycle where your body has become accustomed to functioning in a high state of stress.

This is because when we experience chronic stress, our bodies produce excess amounts of cortisol, also known as the “stress hormone”. This hormone is responsible for feelings of fatigue and anxiety, which can further compound the feeling of being overwhelmed and unable to find relief.

So what can we do to break this cycle?

That’s exactly what we’re going to talk about this week with my guest, best-selling author and functional medicine practitioner Marcelle Pick.
