What is Adrenal Fatigue? Could YOU be Suffering from It?
- Posted on: Nov 3 2020
Are you feeling unusually tired and unable to find relief to your fatigue? Are you feeling overwhelmed or unable to get out of bed in the morning – but perhaps feel a boost in energy in the evenings? You may be suffering from a condition known as adrenal fatigue.
On my podcast this week, I interviewed Marcelle Pick, NP, an OB/GYN Nurse Practitioner who is passionate about transforming the way women experience healthcare through an integrative approach. We touched on topics from adrenal function, hormone levels, historical stress, and nutrition as a healing modality.
When your adrenal glands function below the normal levels, it can cause a condition known as adrenal fatigue syndrome. Adrenal fatigue normally follows periods of intense stress in your life or after an infection or bout with disease. You will likely feel general “unwell” and tired, long after your illness has been healed.
We answer some important questions such as:
- What are the surprising factors that can lead to adrenal fatigue?
- How does trauma impact our adrenals?
- How does a woman’s hormones affect her adrenal function – and vice versa?
- How about men’s hormones?
- What is the best thing a person can do to help recover adrenal function?
Adrenal fatigue can cause changes to your metabolism, electrolyte balance, and cardiovascular system. It can be brought on by poor diet, poor sleep habits, stress, and chronic illness or pregnancy.
If you are experiencing any of the following conditions it may be time to get tested for adrenal fatigue syndrome:
- Little motivation to get out of bed in the morning.
- Tiredness and lackluster feelings all day.
- Boost of energy that does not come until evening hours.
- Craving of salty or sweet snacks.
- Need to boost your energy with caffeine throughout the day
