Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue wreaks havoc on many stressed, worried, grieving and overworked people. However, due to a lack of knowledge about adrenal fatigue, and a lack of diagnosis, particularly in the medical world, adrenal fatigue continues to go undiagnosed.

Adrenal fatigue, or adrenal exhaustion, occurs when your adrenal glands (located on the top of each kidney) are not functioning properly. Adrenal fatigue is most common after prolonged or intense periods of physical or emotional stress.

The adrenal glands, which produce hormones in order to help balance your blood sugar, also release hormones in situations of high stress, igniting the "fight or flight" response. While this a useful tool to escape from dangerous situations, it is now triggered by everyday stressors, including running late, arguments, work pressures, or even being caught in traffic.

Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?

If you have any of the following symptoms of adrenal fatigue, then it might be time to see your holistic practitioner:
  • Rundown or overwhelmed feelings
  • Fatigue/exhaustion
  • Tiredness after sufficient amount of sleep
  • Cravings for salty and sweet foods
  • Inability to cope with stressors
  • Plenty of energy in the evenings
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor digestion
  • Low immune function
  • Low stamina
  • Slow recovery after injury, illness or even stress
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Low blood pressure
  • Allergies
  • Extreme sensitivity to the cold

What Can You Do to Cure Adrenal Fatigue?

It is important to get your adrenal glands back to normal function as prolonged stress and ignoring the symptoms could cause them to shut down completely, leading to even more serious complications.

A combination of dietary changes, herbs, supplements and natural holistic treatments are a good way to cure adrenal fatigue.
