How to Evaluate Adrenal Fatigue on a Blood Chemistry

Adrenal fatigue is one of the biggest misconceptions in the functional medicine industry.

This course will enable you to help millions of people struggling with what is falsely referred to as "adrenal fatigue."

In just two hours, you’ll get fully updated on the science, the evidence, and the approach you need to fully master this trending topic.



As much potential as our industry has, it also has a big problem – storytelling.

While stories are great for spreading the word, they’re not so good for getting actual results with real people. 

The adrenal fatigue story is one of the most popular stories we like to tell. 
You've likely heard it and told it:

“The adrenals are two small glands that sit on top of the kidneys and produce cortisol. When we’re stressed for long periods of time, our adrenals get tired and stop producing cortisol. This leads to symptoms of fatigue, depression, food cravings, and brain fog”.

This story is simply not scientifically accurate. For example, did you know there’s more than one HPA axis? Or that cortisol is not just made in the adrenal glands? Or that fatigue doesn’t go along with low cortisol?

No matter what type of healthcare provider you are – health coach, fitness professional, nutritionist, or doctor – scientific evidence is the key to improved client outcomes.

To practice better functional medicine, we must rely on science first.

In just 2 hours, you'll learn:

  • How to discern between adrenal fatigue fact and fiction so you can cut the confusion and actually help your clients. 
  • What "adrenal fatigue" actually is, so you can correctly counsel your clients and quickly become the go-to expert. 
  • The evidence-based causes of low cortisol so you never miss them or recommend the wrong supplements again.
  • A repeatable, evidence-based way to evaluate low cortisol on a standard blood chemistry (WITHOUT having to run a $180 adrenal panel on every patient).
  • Dr Walsh's step-by-step method to evaluating low cortisol so you can easily implement this evidence-based strategy in your practice.
  • Why saying "cortisol is a stress hormone that comes from the adrenal glands" is incorrect, and how to confidently speak on this widely misunderstood topic.

What to expect from this microcourse


We’re Drs. Bryan and Julie Walsh and we’re fed up with bad education in the health industry.

Bad education handicapped the success of our practice for years. Even after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on our doctorate degrees, we got out of school and found ourselves wondering, “What do I do with this patient?”.

We attended seminar after seminar, learning information from "experts" that was “guaranteed to work” … only, it didn’t.

It wasn’t until we dove deep into the science that we found the answers we were looking for.

First, these answers dramatically improved the success of our practice. Now, they improve the success of thousands of other practitioners from around the world who have taken our functional medicine courses.
