There are over 250 mediators released in response to stress. Measuring a single mediator can be useful, but it does not tell the whole story. The ideal stress indicator would be the sum of these mediators. Our test monitors the multi-faceted effects of stress using the body’s cells as bio-indicators. The body’s leukocytes (white cells) circulate throughout the body picking up and responding to all the signals of stress. The coping capacity test can pick up on these subtle changes, generating readings in just ten minutes.
