An Urban Epidemic!

When the adrenals are tired, the body may experience a number of different symptoms. The most common symptoms caused by tired or worn-out adrenal glands are:

  • brain fog
  • chronic fatigue
  • Lack of energy in afternoon
  • reliance on coffee to get day started
  •  fibromyalgia
  • tendency to gain weight and inability to lose it, especially around the waist
  •  Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Heart palpitations
  • Tired but wired feeling, poor sleep
  • Cravings for sweets and carbs, intolerance to alcohol
  • Premature aging
  • Dry, unhealthy skin with excess pigmentation• Cravings for salt
  • Low stamina for stress, and easily irritated
  • Excessive mood responses after eating carbohydrates such as pasta, breads and sugar
  • Low blood pressure
  • Light-headedness upon standing up / low blood pressure
  • Lack of libido
  • Cystic breasts
  • Tendency to startle easily
  • Negative response to thyroid hormone 
  • Excessive sweating or perspiration from little activity
  • Lower back pain and/or knee weakness or pain, especially on the side 
  • Chronic infections (bacterial, viral, fungal, yeast)
  • Dizziness 

 None of these signs or symptoms by themselves can definitively confirm Adrenal Fatigue. However, as a group of symptoms, in the context of an otherwise healthy person, they do form a specific Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome or picture, that is, of a person under stress and the body’s failing physiological response to deal with such a burden. Adrenal Fatigue, as a debilitating condition, is not recognized by conventional medicine and is thus missed by most conventionally trained physicians
