Today I’m going to share the best way to tell if you have high cortisol. Cortisol is the main stress hormone. If cortisol is too high, it can lead to a lot of different health problems. 

High cortisol can potentially lead to issues, such as:
• Belly fat 
• High blood pressure 
• Allergies
• Asthma 
• Acne 
• Anxiety 
• Low tolerance to stress
• Inflammation 
• Blood sugar problems 
• Cravings for carbs 
• Decreased libido 
• Decreased potassium 
• Alkalosis 

The #1 sign of high cortisol is if you wake up at about 2:00 am – 2:30 am every night. The pattern for high cortisol is waking up at about 2:00 am – 2:30 am with a lot of thoughts that keep you awake until about 8:00 am. 

This happens because cortisol follows the circadian wave. Cortisol is normally supposed to be the lowest at about 2:00 am and the highest at 8:00 am. When you have high cortisol, everything is backward. You might also feel like you need a nap mid-day around 2:00 – 3:00 pm. 

Potential remedies for high cortisol:
1. Improve your stress
2. Take long walks in nature 
3. Do physical work to the point where you’re tired 
4. Vitamin B1 (nutritional yeast)
5. Vitamin D3
6 . Potassium and magnesium 
7. Apple cider vinegar
