Most alternative physicians are aware that the HPA axis is intimately involved in the stress response. The purpose of this presentation is to review how stresses of different types affect the HPA axis in diverse ways according the type, severity and duration of the stress. This presentation will not only cover the effects of chronic high and low cortisol, but also the specific illnesses and health conditions that involve high and low cortisol responses to the HPA axis. 

Included in this presentation will be a section on successful comprehensive treatment protocols for HPA axis dysfunction in cases with chronically high and chronically low cortisol, ending with a section on how to treat the difficult patient. By the end of this presentation, attendees should have deeper and clinically relevant understanding of the HPA axis and its involvement in various health conditions along with effective treatment protocols they can use in their own practices. This presentation is being prepared exclusively for Australian healthcare practitioners.
