What Is Adrenal Fatigue And Do You Have It?

Posted by     on March 7, 2018

Dr Della Parker_7 Ways To Optimize Your Bedroom For Sleep

Let’s start with the basics — the adrenal glands are endocrine glands that produce a variety of hormones including adrenaline and the steroids aldosterone and cortisol. They are the predominant stress handlers of the body, managing inflammation, blood sugar, and fluid balance. They contribute to the production of sex hormones and work with the thyroid to run metabolism. Adrenal glands are the multitasking powerhouses of our bodies, and in this modern world, they have more to protect us from than ever before.

Adrenal fatigue can occur as a result of numerous ailments, and symptoms can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sugar handling problems/diabetes
  • Dizziness upon standing
  • Insomnia
  • Photophobia
  • Decreased libido
  • Asthma
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Thyroid problems
  • Heart palpitations
  • Chronic inflammation

Most people suffering from adrenal fatigue require deliberate adrenal gland support to either prevent inflammation from worsening or to help their body appropriately handle stress.
