Adrenal Fatigue
The Causes, Symptoms and Effective Ways to Treat It

These days, our lives are filled with a lot of stress and strain. We work so hard in order to get that big fat raise or that promotion at work or to get high grades in school in order us to become successful. The problem is that our health is becoming the trade-off for this success that we all want so much.

Thanks to the stress and strain that we experience in our daily lives, there are a lot of people today who are suffering from a type of stress-related disorder called adrenal fatigue.

Basically, adrenal fatigue affects the adrenal glands in our body as the name suggests. You need to keep in mind that the adrenal glands produce hormones that are responsible to regulate the physiological processes in our body. It basically maintains our blood pressure, blood sugar levels, body fluid balance, and it also regulates other central metabolic functions in our body.

If you are suffering from adrenal fatigue, the productions of hormones that make us feel good will also be affected. One of the hormones that will be affected would be the cortisol. You need to keep in mind that cortisol is essential in our body as this deals with long term related stress problems. If your body fails to produce this fight or flight hormones, then you will eventually suffer from adrenal fatigue.

People with adrenal fatigue experience extreme exhaustion. You will feel so tired beyond your normal day to day tiredness and this is a sign that you are suffering from adrenal fatigue. Even after long rest periods, you will still feel exhausted and feel as if you cannot perform your normal day to day activities.

Suffering from adrenal fatigue will also cause your body to recover slower than usual from sickness. Some people who suffers from adrenal fatigue relies on stimulants such as energy drinks and coffee in order to perk them up or to give them the energy they need in order to function normally at work as well as at home.

Another symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue is the difficulty in getting up in the morning. It is also associated with other symptoms, such as nervousness, irritability, disturbed sleep patterns, as well as digestive problems and body aches.

One major cause of adrenal fatigue is poor nutrition. A lot of people nowadays suffer from adrenal fatigue because they tend to eat foods that are not considered good food and are incomplete when it comes to your daily nutritional needs. Stress is another major cause of adrenal fatigue as this will disrupt the production of hormones in your body, which results in overworking your adrenal glands.

To treat adrenal fatigue, you can simply take dietary supplements to ensure that you can provide your body with the proper nutrients it needs in order to function normally, which includes your adrenal glands. You should also start exercising and get enough rest. By doing these things, you will reduce stress and give you more energy to function normally in society.

The best key to treating adrenal fatigue is by living a healthy life. This means you have to eat the right food, exercise, and give your body enough rest.
