Could It Be Adrenal Fatigue?
Have you been tired for seemingly no reason? Do you struggle to get up in the morning? Are you feeling run down or stressed? If the answer is ‘yes’ you may be experiencing adrenal fatigue.
The adrenals are walnut-sized glands located on top of each kidney and are responsible for many essential functions in the body. The adrenal cortex produces hormones including cortisol, DHEA, estrogen, and testosterone.
The adrenal glands are triggered to secrete stress hormones with every challenge to the mind and body. Our body is constantly bombarded with various stressors from environmental toxins to constant worry and nutritional deficiencies from an inadequate diet causing the adrenals to work in overdrive.
Around-the-clock stress results in overworked adrenals leading to poor hormonal regulation. Medical conditions where adrenal fatigue is a likely factor include fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue syndrome, and arthritis, just to name a few.
