Are you tired of feeling tired? Do you still feel sluggish even after a good night’s rest? So many of us go through our daily activities feeling stressed, overwhelmed, fatigued, irritable, and experiencing mental fog. These symptoms could indicate that your adrenal glands may not be performing well enough to keep your body functioning at a healthy level. A person diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, as well as, women experiencing perimenopause and menopause, can be particularly susceptible to adrenal imbalances.
Many health experts believe approximately 80% of the population suffer from some level of adrenal insufficiency, yet are only diagnosed when an extreme deficiency (Addison’s disease) or overproduction (Cushing’s disease) of the adrenal hormones are found while performing routine blood work. This means that many people are trying to manage their lives and daily activities with malfunctioning adrenal glands, which goes undetected, not meeting the level of severity to diagnose disease. When your adrenal glands are being stressed, an autoimmune inflammatory response can occur throughout the entire body.
Often times these adrenal malfunctions cannot be addressed with just a healthy diet and exercise. And while exercise is a very important part of being healthy, if not done properly for your level of health, can actually trigger an adrenal crash.
