Feeling tired? Overwhelmed?? Adrenal fatigue may be the culprit. Your two adrenal glands are located on top of your kidneys (one on each side). These glands help produce your sex hormones (Testosterone, Estrogen, Progesterone) among many other things. Cortisol is also a hormone produced by your adrenal glands and this hormone is critical for dealing with stress.
Our bodies are not made to endure the day in and day out stresses that we have today. You are constantly bombarded by stressful things. Your adrenal glands can not keep up and you can get what we call adrenal fatigue.
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue can be:
Anxiety, depression, chemical sensitivities, sweet and salt cravings, insomnia, daytime fatigue, etc. If you have these symptoms get a saliva test for cortisol and have an evaluation by a Regenerative medicine specialist. Yoga, meditation, proper supplementation, and nutritional changes will assist you in your recovery.
