WTF IS ADRENAL FATIGUE?
Adrenal Fatigue is extreme Burnout and its one of the biggest health challenges that you will face, but sadly the conventional medical system doesn't recognise it and a legitimate illness. As the name suggests Adrenal Fatigue is when your adrenal glands are depleted or tired. They have been asked too many times to respond to life's challenges and they can no longer produce the hormones required to give you energy and vitality.
Fatigued adrenals create a cluster of physical and emotional symptoms that can wreak havoc on your life, and have you suffering from debilitating exhaustion, barely able to function in day to day activities. Most of the symptoms are common so often people who are suffering from this condition don’t have the faintest idea of what is causing them and may put it down to other things.
Adrenal Fatigue is a progressive illness, at first you may feel more tired than normal, experience headaches, find yourself out of breath at mild exertion or have difficulty sleeping. Slowly over time these symptoms multiply and the intensity increases.
You might find that you struggle to get up in the mornings and that you are constantly tired. You may feel dizzy upon standing and although you are well, you feel like you are getting the flu and have flu like symptoms. You are gaining weight, especially around the middle despite eating well and exercising, and you are wearing your cranky pants a lot, losing your shit over the slightest things such as crying over dropping an egg on the floor.
You may also often feel anxious, helpless or depressed a lot of the time for no apparent reason - this is your adrenals crying out for help hun- they are burnt out!
Adrenal Fatigue is an illness that has become invisible to modern medicine, there is no real evaluation for low adrenal function and it is extremely difficult to test and diagnose as most tests come back 'normal'.
Well hun, Im here to tell you that its NOT normal and you are NOT cray cray. It IS a real phenomenon and It is affecting hundreds of thousands of people around the globe!
But the good news is it's not a life sentence and you don't have to feel invisible anymore!
