Adrenal Fatigue
...Nutrition to the rescue!

Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue means your adrenal glands aren't working properly. The adrenal glands are two, small, triangular glands located on top of each kidney. They produce over 50 essential hormones, including adrenaline, estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisol and DHEA.

Adrenal Glands

The adrenal glands consist of two sections:
1) Inner part called the medulla produces stress hormones. 2) Outer part called the cortex secretes critical hormones called glucocorticoids and aldosterone.
Because of these hormones, the cortex has a far greater impact on overall health than the medulla does.

  • Common Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms:
  • Anxiety/Panic attacks
  • Arthritis
  • Craving salty and/or sweet foods
  • Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating, brain fog
  • Dizziness, feel light headed getting up from the bed, or ground
  • Excessive fatigue and/or exhaustion
  • Feeling overwhelmed, unable to cope
  • Frequent flu and/or cold symptoms
  • Irritability, impatience, quick to anger
  • Irritable bowel syndrome, IBS
  • Lack of lust for life and/or food
  • Low blood pressure
  • Low immune function
  • Low libido, sexual drive or interest
  • Low or excessive appetite
  • Low stamina and slow to recover from exercise
  • Non-refreshing sleep, sleep disturbance, insomnia
  • Poor digestion
  • Reduced memory
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Slow to recover from injury or illness
Why are aldosterone and glucocorticoids so important?
Because they directly affect blood pressure and mineral content
and help regulate the conversion of carbohydrates into energy.

In essence, our adrenal gland gives us our 'get up and go'.
Symptoms of adrenal fatigue include: being tired all the time, lethargy, anxiety, mild depression, insomnia, arthritis, fearfulness, frequent illness (particularly the "flu"), decreased short term memory, lack of concentration, muscle weakness, increased PMS, perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms, decreased sex drive, salt cravings, and inability to loose weight even with extensive effort.

The cycle of adrenal fatigue typically goes something like this… You wake up feeling tired and fatigued. After lunchtime you start to perk up a bit, than hit the wall of exhaustion about 3 pm. You get a "second wind" around 6 pm, and by 9 or 10 pm you're pretty much wiped out.

Problem is you can't sleep.
You toss and turn and flip and flop for hours on end. Finally, around 2 am you drift off to la-la land. When your alarm goes off - between 6 am or 7 - you are too exhausted to get up but your family or job demands that you get up and keep up…

Lifestyle changes that improve Adrenal Fatigue:
    Dietary changes
  • Cooking your own food allows you to KNOW exactly what you are eating.
  • Eat gluten/grain free foods
  • Eat breakfast every day
  • Eat a variety of organic fruits and vegetables
  • Eat balanced meals that include a balanced amount of protein,
    carbohydrates, fats and live enzymes, as in raw foods.
  • Eliminate chemically processed commercial foods such as those found in cans and packages which provide little nutrition. These foods often contain HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), MSG and other preservatives that can interfere with proper nutrition.
Drink water every day to stay hydrated
Drink adequate amounts of fresh clean water daily.
The best measure of adequate daily drinking water
consists of ½ oz. of water per pound of body weight.

A person weighing 150 lb. needs 75 oz. of water daily.

Proper Sleep, Rest and Relaxation
Get a good night's sleep. Sleep helps to regulate bodily functions and regenerate proper production of all the body's hormones, neurotransmitters and digestive functions. Lack of sleep adds to stress levels causing more strain on the adrenal glands. Rest and relaxation allows your body to become refreshed and able to carry on without that "tired feeling."


Exercise to increase circulation,
optimize function and eliminate toxins.
Walking for 30 minutes a day is a great start.
Add free weights 2-3 days a week.
