Deal with Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

Guest Blog

Today, when science and technology are so advanced, people take less care of health than decades ago, when the quality of life was much worse. We should be grateful for living in an era of great possibilities, but we shouldn’t sacrifice our well-being instead.

Here’s how our lives and health changed over the past several decades:

People are exposed to chronic stress to a greater or lesser extent, and it has a tremendous impact on our health. They often fail to observe warning signs. When they see their doctor, the illness has progressed significantly and done harm.

Adrenal fatigue is just one of the diseases of the modern age that most of us face. Many of us have probably never heard of it before, but it is quite sure that we have experienced, at least, some of the symptoms so far.

Why People Ignore Signs of Adrenal Fatigue?

You are chronically tired, sleepy, and need plenty of caffeine to get through the day. In the daytime, you are grumpy, moody, and indifferent, while in the evening, you feel an adrenaline rush. These further causes sleep problems, so you often stay awake until the early morning. You are always stressed, and appetite issues occur.

For many people, the onset of these symptoms is not uncommon. They think it is the result of a busy day, too much work, and too little time to relax and that everything will pass when they rest. But they just don’t have time to rest, due to the continual rush-hour in their lives.

And if we add poor libido, frequent allergies, and lack of motivation to the symptoms mentioned above, it is clear that we shouldn’t neglect such things. We are often unaware of the fact that they are actual symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

Triggers of Adrenal Fatigue

The name of this health condition comes from the adrenal glands, where the whole problem begins. Prolonged and continuous stress puts a strain on these glands. Due to overload, they produce large amounts of adrenaline and cortisol. These two hormones are the primary triggers for our body’s mental and physical responses to stress. On this source, find out how many adverse effects everyday stress has on your health.

In a state of continuous tension and fatigue, the adrenal glands no longer respond to stress, and this condition is characterized by low levels of cortisol in the body. When the adrenal glands stop to operate, they disrupt all hormonal processes in the organism.

Anxiety, behavioral disorders, irritability, appetite disorders occur. Skin rashes and irritation are the most visible of the physical symptoms. Also, another consequence is hormonal imbalances, which can have detrimental effects on reproductive health, especially for women.

Where We Go Wrong in Treating Adrenal Fatigue

In conditions of chronic stress caused by negative emotions in personal and professional life, people make big mistakes when it comes to the function of adrenal glands. Due to too much pressure we deal with, they need to maintain higher levels of adrenaline and cortisol to help us overcome the current situation.

Unless we slow down the tempo, the ‘supplies’ of these hormones will run out, and ultimately reduced the body’s resistance to stress. We make a big mistake by reducing the importance of symptoms as stress increases. Although the body is, in some way, reprimanding us, we do not give up our lifestyle until we exhaust ourselves entirely.

Then we turn to the wrong energy sources such as caffeine, sugar, and alcohol, i.e., simple sugars. This ‘comfort food’ provides an instant boost of energy, and we feel better. What is actually happening is a disturbance of the level of insulin, which further can cause severe health complications.

Right Way of Dealing with This Condition

When we feel sick, it’s easiest to turn to pharmacological solutions. We live so fast that we forgot to stop and listen to our organism. If we only slow down a bit, we could eliminate adrenal fatigue and all discomfort it carries in a healthy and natural way.

The first step to our complete recovery and getting rid of adrenal fatigue is to change our daily nutrition. Probably every doctor you saw told this many times before, but it’s of the utmost importance to repeat. Food is our source of energy; if it is healthy and balanced, the energy generated in our body will be beneficial.

Harmful ingredients and toxins interfere with many processes in our bodies, making us feel exhausted and broken. Try to feed yourself on an intolerance test. In this way, blood sugar levels can stabilize, and the elimination of toxins will be faster.

Drop alcohol, simple sugars, caffeine, gluten, dairy products, and replace them with natural herbal blends and appropriate foods. Also, meditate and rest more. Finding an inner balance can help us manage stress better. Do sports, take often breaks while work, and spend time outside. According to, the recovery takes a while, but if we adhere to certain principles, it’s almost sure.

Adrenal fatigue is not a deadly disease, nor can it endanger anyone but us. We still do not take it seriously, though it does show worrying symptoms. Even when we notice them, we neglect them. Sure, drugs can help, but why we don’t do something good for our health? If we didn’t so far, we should start listening to our bodies and live up to our needs.
