Modern day lifestyle has created a fast paced and hectic way of existing with little time for family, friends and most importantly for ourselves. The desire for earning more and more money has urged the individual to work beyond their limits, resulting in imbalances in the physical, mental and psychological areas of our being, leading to significant stress disorders.
Adrenal fatigue and symptoms
The poor working of the adrenal gland leads to adrenal fatigue. The adrenal glands (hypothalamus and pituitary) function to control our body’s response to stress, by releasing hormones such as noradrenaline, adrenaline, cortisol and DHEA. These hormones purpose is to to regulate heart rate, immune system and energy production.
Most people will experience an episode of adrenal fatigue at least once in their lifetime – mainly due to an illness, a personal crisis, or a difficult economical or financial situation.
Adrenal fatigue can be recognised by many symptoms. Each of them is caused by the improper functioning of the glands.:
- Lowered tolerance to stress
- Sugar and/or salt cravings
- Exhaustion together with poor quality sleep
- Difficulty getting up in the morning
- Depression and anxiety
- Weight gain and inability to lose weight
- High efforts required to do everyday tasks
- Light headed when standing up
- Low body temperature
- Low immunity to colds and flu
