Adrenals & Stress – A Functional Medicine Approach
We are excited to welcome visiting instructor, Dr. Miles Nichols, to The Wellspring School! He will be teaching the workshop called Stress, Fatigue & Adrenal Hormones: A Functional Medicine & Mindful Approach on June 4th. Dr. Nichols is a doctor of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and an expert in Functional Medicine and Mindfulness – as it applies to medicine. He specializes in addressing the root causes (both body AND mind) of chronic illness and establishing preventive practices to help people achieve robust health, happiness (regardless of circumstances), and an inspired sense of purpose! Dr. Miles is an author, national speaker, and he trains clinicians about how to integrate a functional medicine and mindfulness-based approach into their clinical practice. We are really lucky to have him teaching a class here!
Dr. Miles’ passion of reversal and prevention of chronic illness through advanced diagnostic lab testing followed by recommendations around nutrition, lifestyle, supplements, herbs, and mindfulness practice will be apparent to all who attend this one-day workshop. The course will cover some of the most recent research on adrenal hormones, debunk common myths about adrenals that are still prevalent in the integrative medicine community, and will review lab testing and treatments for adrenal hormone dysregulation.
Dr. Miles wrote a great article for us about Stress, Fatigue and the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis – read the full article here: Guest Blog Post by Dr. Miles Nichols
Research strongly supports that our beliefs, thoughts and emotions regarding stress have an important role in health. Because of this, it is essential that we take both a mind and a body approach to working with stress and the adrenal glands / HPA axis. Even if we can balance hormone levels, if a person still perceives that they are under an unpleasant sort of stress, they can still have many real symptoms and health problems. We will explore what it takes to help a person take a step back, honestly consider where their current path leads, and make significant changes towards a more balanced schedule, more play and movement, adequate sleep, and daily mindfulness practices. You will learn to use the following tools to help people become more resilient in the face of stress, find balance in their life, and make important lifestyle changes:
- conversational techniques
- functional medicine lab test results
- research-based supplement protocols
- effective motivational strategies
- lifestyle and mindfulness practices
