Our adrenal glands make several important hormones, with none more important than cortisol.
Cortisol protects the body from the effects of stress but when the adrenals become exhausted they can no longer release enough cortisol to help us sustain good health.
Adrenal fatigue, also called adrenal exhaustion is a condition where the adrenal glands are not able to produce enough cortisol, and in some cases aldosterone.
Those whose adrenal glands are overworked usually experience tiredness, lack of stamina, weight gain, especially in the mid section, and other symptoms. They may become ill more easily and recovery takes longer than usual. The more tired the adrenals become the worse these and other symptoms will be.
I have spoken with people who had already been to their doctor who told them that they were fine. Sometimes the doctors wanted to prescribe them antidepressants or they told them that they were just going through the natural change of life that comes with aging.
Unfortunately, MD's are not taught that much about the adrenal glands and the effects of stress and so they do not check their patient's adrenal function, even though the adrenals play a role in so many health conditions and diseases of aging. If they would just check the patient's cortisol levels they might find the cause of their ailments.
Even those who are already taking other hormonal therapies should see better results from those products if their adrenals are healthy and their cortisol is balanced.
