Stress & Burnout Analyses

A complete, simple and effective home analysis kit

Salivary Analysis – Cortisol Cycle

The cortisol cycle test is recommended for individuals experiencing symptoms of hormonal imbalance, such as:

- Chronic stress: If you experience prolonged stress that could affect your mental and physical health.
- Persistent fatigue: If you suffer from constant fatigue despite adequate rest.
- Sleep problems: If you have difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or achieving restorative sleep.
- Anxiety or depression: If you have symptoms of anxiety or depression that may be linked to cortisol fluctuations.
- Concerns about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS): If you have symptoms of CFS, including extreme fatigue and muscle pain.

  • We have specific clinical requirements that you must meet to be eligible for this test. You will need to validate the online consent form when placing your order to confirm these requirements.

    To undergo this test, you must:
    - Specific medical conditions: Certain pre-existing medical conditions, such as Cushing's syndrome or other severe hormonal disorders, may require prior evaluation or test adaptation.
    - Medications: Some medications can influence cortisol levels, which may require adjustment or temporary suspension before the test. For example, corticosteroids (like prednisone) can affect test results.
    - Pregnancy: During pregnancy, cortisol levels can naturally fluctuate. Therefore, it's important to discuss with a doctor about the relevance and specific considerations before taking the test.
    - Serious health issues: In case of serious illness or recent trauma, it may be necessary to wait until the person has recovered before proceeding with the cortisol test.

Our tests to understand and act

Included in the check-up

Introduction to the Cortisol Cycle Test

  • Stress Analysis, Burnout Prevention, Well-being Optimization

Analysis Kit

  • Saliva Analysis

• Cortisol Cycle: 5 saliva tubes (collected at different times): This test is conducted to detect potential adrenal gland hyperactivity induced by stress, and to assess any exhaustion of these glands. The analysis helps determine whether the stress management system is still in an adaptation and resistance phase, or if it shows signs of fatigue, indicating a risk of burnout.

When should the Stress & Burnout analysis be conducted?

Cortisol cycle analysis is recommended to assess prolonged chronic stress levels, identify potential causes of persistent fatigue, understand sleep disorders and their impact on overall health, as well as establish potential links with anxiety, depression, and increased risk of professional burnout.

By evaluating your stress levels through cortisol, it is possible to determine if you are at risk of professional burnout. Elevated or imbalanced cortisol levels may indicate excessive stress load that could lead to burnout.

If despite adequate rest you suffer from constant fatigue, cortisol analysis can help identify abnormal cortisol levels, which may be associated with chronic fatigue and persistent energy decline.

  • Cortisol cycle analysis is recommended if you experience prolonged stress, which can impact your overall health by increasing blood pressure, weakening the immune system, and contributing to digestive issues and muscle pain.

Symptoms of anxiety and depression can be linked to cortisol fluctuations. Cortisol analysis can provide insights into chronic stress levels and how they may contribute to these emotional disorders.
