With lack of sleep, family responsibilities, commuter traffic, work demands and financial concerns-your adrenals may be screaming for help! Are you feeling tired? It could be adrenal fatigue.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Perhaps the best way to explain adrenal fatigue is as “unexplained exhaustion”. Adrenal fatigue is a collection of symptoms resulting when our adrenal glands are not working the way they should be. Our adrenals give us a little burst of energy in the morning, and help to keep us awake and focused throughout the rest of the day.
People experiencing adrenal fatigue often have to use coffee, colas and other stimulants to get going in the morning and throughout the day.
How common is adrenal fatigue?
Although there are no recent statistics available, Dr. John Tinterra, a medical doctor who specialized in low adrenal function, said in 1969 that he estimated that approximately 16% of the public could be classified as severe, but that if all indications of low cortisol were included, the percentage would be more like 66%.
