The stress created by our hectic lifestyle increases our body's need for nutrients that are not readily available in the typical American diet. Unfortunately these changes over the past 50 years has caused changes in our adrenal hormone production which have lead to symptoms of excessive fatigue, decreased sex drive, menopausal and menstrual problems, diminished immunity, increased allergic reactions, muscle and bone loss, moodiness or depression, hormonal imbalance, skin problems, autoimmune disorders & dozens of other symptoms including general malaise.
There seems to be three different types of treatment for fatigue:
1. Ingesting drugs or other imbalanced substances to do the work of the adrenal. This causes the stressed adrenal gland to weaken further. These glands actually have to decrease the normal function to accommodate the new artificial imbalance injected into the body�s systems.
2. Consuming the adrenals of deceased animals to help control the levels of cortisol.
3. Nourishing the adrenal gland with naturally balanced plants/herbs so the adrenal gland can function normally as nature intended.
First let�s review how adrenal was intended to function. The adrenal glands are walnut-sized glands located on top of each kidney, which control many of the body�s hormones. The Adrenal Cortex is the outer layer of the gland which produces hormones including cortisol, DHEA, estrogen and testosterone. The centers of these glands produce adrenaline which is known for giving us super power in time of fight or flight by rushing all of our energy resources by automatically increasing our heart rate and blood pressure, release our energy stores for immediate use, slow our digestion and sharpen our senses.
Now let�s take a look at what our so called active lifestyle is requiring of our temporary reserve system. Unlike our ancestors, we are making life changing decisions every day all day long which causes constant stress. In the good old days people rested after the occasional stress filled times. But now we�re constantly over-worked, under-nourished with our fast food and fast lifestyles while we expose our bodies to environmental toxins � it just never ends!
But wait --add the lack of sleep, financial pressures, up and down dieting. So what do we get fatigued? We grab an energy drink loaded with caffeine and other stimulant and then we over exercise and expect our adrenals to keep up with our schedules. But remember the adrenal glands were originally designed to be a temporary reserve, which got replenished naturally over a long period of time.
The result is the adrenal glands are now on constant high alert. Wow!
Does this not make you think why hasn't your doctor ever tested your adrenals?
Good question! In a nut shell, many people are told that their adrenal tests are normal with normal cortisol levels yet they still experience feelings of fatigue. Conventional medicine focuses on drugs which actually suppress the symptoms rather than treat underlying causes.
