Dr. Lukaczer’s Toolkit Item of the Month: Effects of Chronic Stress

Dan Lukaczer, ND
There are few patient encounters in which I’m not, in one way or another, describing the effects of chronic stress on our bodies. Sometimes I spend a few minutes on the issue, and sometimes I may go more in depth (especially if I’m going over a salivary evaluation of cortisol and DHEA). We’ve just extensively revised a two-page handout entitled “Effects of Chronic Stress” that visual depicts these effects, overviews some of the common chronic stressors, and outlines various strategies to decrease those stressors. I am finding this a useful adjunct for when I have these conversations with patients.
