Are you feeling tired? Do you often feel sluggish and slow to react? Does your stomach hurt or do you have trouble sleeping at night? You may be suffering from adrenal fatigue. Many people are living with this condition without realizing it, but the symptoms can be debilitating if left untreated. Read on for more information about what adrenal fatigue is, how to diagnose it, and how to treat it.
The adrenal glands sit above your kidneys and are an important part of the endocrine system. They secrete cortisol; a hormone that helps us deal with stress as well as regulate other hormones throughout our bodies, such as insulin or testosterone levels. As naturopaths we believe in balance- if you have been experiencing high amounts of stress it’s likely that your body has begun to produce large quantities of cortisol which can put pressure on the gland itself and cause them to become overworked (and not work properly).
The adrenal glands are the key to your stress management, but they can’t do it alone.
You need a balance of healthy diet and lifestyle changes in order for you to feel balanced again. Making sure that you’re getting enough sleep is also important because cortisol levels increase when we don’t get enough rest or have disruption of our circadian rhythm. The best way as a Naturopath for me to assist you with supporting your adrenal health is with herbal remedies and nutritional medicine which will help regulate hormone production by balancing out those systems so that all aspects of wellness work together harmoniously!
