FATIGUE/ADRENAL FATIGUE

FATIGUE/ADRENAL FATIGUE

We all feel tired from time to time. It’s the result of living in such a hectic, fast-pace world. But when your fatigue is intense and chronic, it’s time to look into it. It could be Adrenal Fatigue, an extreme form of fatigue linked to inconsistent levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It’s a tiredness that is constant and limits daily activities.  It is unexplained, persistent, relapsing exhaustion.

WHAT CAUSES FATIGUE?

Adrenal Fatigue is caused when sustained stress becomes too much for the body to handle. The usual way our bodies deal with stress is to rely on the hormone, cortisol, which is produced by the small adrenal glands, located above the kidneys. Long-term stress can inhibit the adrenal glands’ ability to keep up with cortisol production. It can also create wild fluctuations in the amount of cortisol being produced, which can give you extreme swings in energy levels.

COMMON SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Extreme swings in energy levels
  • Brain fog
  • Weight gain
  • Blood sugar fluctuations
  • Lack of energy

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Sore or aching muscles
  • Muscle weakness
  • Slowed reflexes and response time
  • Impaired decision making and judgement
  • Moodiness and Irritability

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Those who suffer from Adrenal Fatigue tend to experience peaks and valleys in their energy levels throughout the day. They might have difficulty in waking up without the aid of caffeine. Once they get going, they might experience a crash of energy in the early afternoon, following by crashes and surges until they fall asleep at night.

PREVENTION

Daily stress management is essential in modern life. Stress sneaks up on you, so it’s important to incorporate a regular routine of stress reduction strategies. This could include exercise, yoga, meditation, spirituality/prayer, healthy eating, quality supplements, socializing, counseling or creative pursuits.
