Combating Adrenal Fatigue

According to Firehouse Magazine “Adrenal fatigue is probably one of the most under-diagnosed and under-recognized conditions by physicians and other healthcare providers. However, it is estimated to affect 80 percent of people in the world.”

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

The adrenal system is what your body uses to deal with stress. It deals with every kind of stress; physical, mental, relationship, and chemical.

When your body identifies a stressful event it can either fight or flight on a local level or a systemic level. As your body prepares for this fight it releases a “stress cascade” of 2500 chemicals. These chemicals are needed to help your body to fight the war. When stress only occurs once in a while, our body has time to repair, restrengthen, and restock but when stress is a constant, on going, problem our body simply runs out of the raw materials to produce these chemicals. Our adrenal system begins to fatigue, become sluggish and slow down until it stops.

Why is Adrenal Fatigue more prevalent today?

Due to our current diets and the number of stressful events we face each day, the majority of us are fighting Adrenal Fatigue. Canned, processed, frozen foods combined with deadlines, bad relationships, traffic, and constant information is the recipe for adrenal fatigue. The world we live in today often leaves no time for healthy meals and peaceful moments.

What Does Adrenal Fatigue Feel Like?

After constant adrenal fatigue, our adrenal glands eventually become insufficient to manage stressful events effectively. We become exhausted, tired and the stress seems more than we can bear.

After the adrenals have tanked, the thyroid steps in to help....however the thyroid is not designed to manage the adrenals job and many times thyroid issues begin to develop. If you have thyroid problems, often times it is a good idea to strengthen your adrenal system as well.
