Inability to deal with stress
Description & Cause:
Adrenal glands are situated above the kidneys and are responsible for the production of cortisol, adrenalin, noradrenalin & DHEA. Adrenal fatigue is caused by chronic stress and chronic stress is extremely common in today’s western society where stress has become a ‘way of life’. The adrenal glands are the control centre for our body’s stress systems, i.e. Adrenal glands are primarily responsible for stress regulation, and when these glands become dysfunctional, we have a reduced ability to handle stress. The symptoms mentioned above then begin to arise.
The good news is that adrenal fatigue CAN be reversed! Together with dietary changes, lifestyle changes and nutritional supplementation.
