                                ADRENAL FATIGUE

The adrenal glands produce a host of hormones for the body, one of them being cortisol which is the primary  hormone used to help our bodies deal with stress. When the body is constantly under stress due to a busy or difficult lifestyle, the adrenal glands may over produce cortisol to keep up with the demand of a perpetual fight-or-flight arousal. The excessive imbalance of cortisol prevents the adrenals from producing other essential hormones . This lack of hormones results in changes in the body’s carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism, fluid and electrolyte balance, heart and cardiovascular system and even sex drive. The result of this imbalance means that the individual experiences normal everyday stresses as overwhelming and tired chronically no matter how long one sleeps.   As a result of this, unnecessary weight gain, hypothyroidism, food cravings, low blood pressure, feelings of cold, and PMS, and overall lack of sex drive are many health conditions that can be seen coupled with or masking underlying adrenal fatigue.
