Tons of great info! I feel smarter after I read these posts:) Thanks!


Nice one Sean E. Cakes


Great article, Sean. I've also read several sources linking high cortisol levels to acne problems. It continues to amaze me how much diet is linked to so many aspects of life. Keep em coming.


I had no idea that melatonin and cortisol were related. I thought that serotonin was the primary source of melatonin, but there's plenty of research linking cortisol and melatonin. Very good to know. I've been trying to find ways to deal with an exaggerated cortisol awakening response (or chronic Somogyi rebound, not sure which). Maybe more melatonin is in order.


everything i've read on the subject, correlated cortisol and serotonin levels to mirror each other.. so as serotonin is converted to melatonin, cortisol levels drop.. i may have mis-mentioned that in the post, but wil make note to it with a change.

as far as the somogyi effect, maybe some extra dietary fat before bed could help mute the SNS signal that wakes you up in the morning (and primitively tells you to go hunt (eat))..


Too much exercise...wow, never heard that one before. Things ya learn, I tell you what...


What a amazing post, I never find these type of info. Thanks for share with us..!!

As a lifestyle counselor and psychotherapist for those who are challenged with chronic illness and pain, especially those who have Cushing's Disease, balancing Cortisol & Melatonin is most important. Thank you for clarifying how serious it is NOT to take Melatonin hormone. Find natural ways to raise this, and explore Metabolic Syndrome in cases such as these. Thank you for this wonderful post.

As to those of us with Adrenal Fatigue, who have topped off our cortisol and now produce next to nothing?
