What is Adrenal Fatigue?
It is the consequence of prolonged stress, which can be physical, emotional, psychological, or a combination of these. Stress ranges from mild to severe but the body responds to each of these the same by releasing cortisol. The dysfunction arises when the stress becomes prolonged and the body is no longer able to respond appropriately.
Common symptoms include feeling tired for no reason, problems getting out of bed in the morning, unexplained allergies, recurrent infections, insomnia, memory problems, indigestion, unable to lose weight, back pain and dizziness.
Recovering from adrenal fatigue involves lifestyle changes, a healthy diet, avoiding food allergies and a regular outlet for stress whether it is meditation, exercise or journaling. It is important to create a lifestyle that helps your body recover from the stress and replenish the various nutrients and vitamins that stress has depleted over time.
