CLUE #1: You feel stressed out and constantly fatigued
Today’s fast paced lifestyle and endless time constraints are seeing so many people over-worked and exhausted. If you’re stressed out and lacking vitality, chances are your adrenals are in need of attention.
Adrenal fatigue, also known as adrenal exhaustion or hypoadrenia, is one of the most under diagnosed illnesses in western society.
It is estimated that 80% of the adult population are suffering with adrenal fatigue to some degree, a condition most health care professionals overlook or deny even exists. This outlook can be discouraging when you are trying to get to the root of your health problem, since it may be brushed off by your doctor.
Luckily, not all medical professionals agree with the adrenal fatigue “myth”. Countless studies and years of research support the importance of the adrenals.
Adrenal fatigue is an underlying factor in just about every physical, emotional and spiritual problem we are suffering from today.
When the adrenals have lost their life force, many systems also suffer, including digestion, brain (e.g. hypothalamus and pituitary), thyroid, liver, heart, sexual organs, endocrine system, and central nervous system.
Treating Adrenal Fatigue
Recovery from adrenal fatigue takes time, patience, vigilance and devotion. After all, it took months, maybe years, to wear out your adrenals; so it takes a little time to build up their strength again. You can expect full recovery to take:
- 6–9 months for minor adrenal fatigue
- 12–18 months for moderate fatigue
- Up to 24 months for severe adrenal fatigue
