Adrenal Fatigue

If your adrenal function is low, as it is in adrenal fatigue, your body has difficulty responding and adapting properly.

In modern society, these same responses are triggered by such circumstances as a difficult boss, air pollution, family quarrels, financial problems, too little sleep, infections and overindulgence in or sensitivities to food or substance abuse.

If your adrenal function is low, as it is in adrenal fatigue, your body has difficulty responding and adapting properly to these stresses.

* This can lead to a variety of physical and psychological health problems that are themselves a further source of stress.*

It is also your adrenal glands’ job to keep your body’s reactions to stress in balance so that they are appropriate and not harmful. For example, the protective activity of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant adrenal hormones like cortisol helps to minimize reactions like swelling and inflammation in situations ranging from allergies to autoimmune disorders.
