Adrenal Stress Profile -


Adrenal Stress Profile

For those feeling overwhelmed by life Better Living offers our Toronto customers the option of having their stress hormones tested via saliva by ALCAT laboratories or hair by CanAlt Health Laboratories.

The Salivary Adrenal Stress Profile can detect imbalances in the daily circadian secretions of cortisol and DHEA.  Signs of imbalance can be as varied as anxiety, chronic inflammatory conditions, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, insomnia, migraines, infertility and low energy levels.  With stress being so common and a major underlying factor in so many chronic diseases checking the saliva at 5 to 6 specific times during the day can be highly beneficial as part of your overall health plan.  ALCAT laboratories in Florida uses the ELISA method to determine the circadian deviation from the normal amounts of rhythmically secreted cortisol.  For more information visit or contact us at the dispensary. The cost of the Adrenal Stress Profile is $229 and includes both the lab fee and 30 minute follow up consultation, the kit for the test can be picked up at our Toronto location during store hours.  The cost for a follow up consultation without retesting is $50 for a half hour or $80 for a full hour. The saliva is collected in the comfort of your home prior to the courier picking it up and shipping it to the lab.

The hair cortisol level test is performed by us collecting a sample of untreated hair from the patients scalp and sending it off to the lab.  The hair must be untreated (no color, perm or straightening) and at least one inch long in order to get a 3 month average of the patients cortisol levels.  The cost for the test is $120 including a 30 minute follow up consultation and the results arrive in approximately 5 to 7 business days.
