What is Adrenal Fatigue?

In this age of fast living where we are struggling to juggle being a parent and holding down a full or part-time job.  Mix in the social media: answering emails, tweeting and being constantly connected to the internet, then add in the unhealthy eating, lack of exercise and daily consumption of alcohol and we have a recipe for Adrenal fatigue.  We have become so good at multi-tasking that we are afraid to stop for a moment and allow our bodies to switch off and relax in case we are missing out on something!  It is no wonder our minds and bodies have little time to rest and recover

What are your Stressors?

To what effect is this having on our adrenal glands and why do we need to start making some changes in our lives?

What happens when we abuse our adrenal glands?

Our adrenal glands adapt to stress by the 'fight and flight' mechanism, preparing us to either stand and fight or run from danger.  Unfortunately with our modern lifestyle we are constantly being over stimulated and this mechanism remains switched on creating the 3 stages of adrenal fatigue.

The 3 stages of Adrenal Fatigue

Stage 1

When our bodies are in the initial stages of adrenal fatigue we feel 'wired' and over-energised all day by the high levels of stress hormones (DHEA & Cortisol) that the body produces to keep you alert and focused. But as our bodies are stressed over and over again, day after day by our lifestyles, high intake of caffeine, alcohol, workload, emotional stressors and the type of food we eat, the destruction of our adrenal health is almost inevitable.

Stage 2

This damage doesn't happen overnight and if the stress continues over a long period the adrenal glands become overloaded and start to produce symptoms:

  • Weight gain
  • Digestive problems
  • Thyroid problems
  • Blood pressure irregularities
  • Irritability, anxiety, stress
  • PMS
  • Problems with sleeping which can leave you tired and drained

Stage 3

Eventually if you continue on this cycle the stress hormone levels become so depleted that your symptoms become chronic, you feel exhausted, tired, fatigued and find it a struggle to cope with life's daily demands leading to Chronic Fatigue.

So you see how this very important gland, if mistreated, can have a major affect on your health, and the other systems in your body. Read more
