Are your Adrenals Fatigued?  

Recently I’ve had a many new clients coming to me for “MANAGING STRESS”. Even the local newspaper reporter sought me out for information on a feature about stress IN LAST WEEKENDS PAPER! (OMG the top photo is terrible!!!!)

Recently I wrote, Stress Kills! Find Your triggers and take action!  Often we miss the signals that our bodies are attempting to provide us. We’re too consumed by the daily grind and keeping up with the mounting tasks, that we miss our physical responses and don’t do anything about them. Adrenal Glands

Adrenal Glands

Two, triangular shaped glands that sit on top of your kidneys, consisting of an inner medulla and an outer cortex. The adrenal medulla produces and secretes epinephrine (adrenaline, a fast-acting hormone), norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and a small amount of dopamine in response to stimulation by sympathetic preganglionic neurons. The adrenal cortex mediates the stress response through the production of steroid hormones: mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids, including aldosterone and cortisol respectively as well as DHEA and sex hormone precursors. (Rob Wolf)

Adrenal Fatigue

Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged (chronic) stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable cause. You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you’ll live with a general sense of un-wellness, tiredness or apathy and detachment. People experiencing adrenal fatigue often have to use coffee, soft-drinks (think “Mother”, “V” and “Red Bull”) and other stimulants to get going in the morning to prop themselves up during the day.

If you think you might be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue but you don’t know how to take action and overcome your mounting stress levels, get in touch and let’s create some healthy and positive change in your mind, body and life.

Get on top of your stress before it takes your mind and body over!
