What Does It Test For?

The Cortisol Awakening Response (CAR) measures the rise and fall of cortisol with in the first hour upon awakening, as well as points in the afternoon and before bed.

It’s almost like a mini stress test, to see how your body copes day to day. An elevated cortisol response can drive anxiety first thing in the morning, whilst a slow rise or flat awakening response can affect your energy levels, motivation and even increase your risk for autoimmune diseases in the long term. 

How Does It Work?

For new clients, an initial consultation will need to be conducted before purchasing the test. The appropriate test will then be recommended by Chloe. You can organise your initial consultation here.

This Cortisol Awakening Response is a simple saliva test  that is measured upon rising, 30 minutes post waking, 60 minutes post waking, 12:00 (noon), 4:00pm and 8:00pm.

After collection, it is sent express post to a specialised Laboratory based in Victoria, Australia.

The results take approximately 2-3 weeks to receive.

Once Chloe has received the results she will sit down with you and discuss the report in detail.

She will then provide a treatment plan accordingly which will encompass diet, lifestyle, herbal and nutritional medicine to support a healthy stress response.
