5 Signs You Have Adrenal Fatigue
Adrenal fatigue has become as common as seasonal colds. The major difference is that stressed-out adrenals can have a much graver effect on your overall health. Your adrenals are two little glands located right above the kidneys that control the release of hormones in response to stress. When a car zips by and you feel like it might hit you, your adrenals are what produce that fight-or-flight surge of energy that you suddenly feel in your stomach.
The adrenals often become exhausted from too many stimulants in the diet. Caffeine, sugar and alcohol all fall into this category, causing blood sugar levels to sky rocket, then crash, confusing the adrenals and making them work overtime.
Adrenal fatigue is a serious condition I’ve faced and overcome, and I want to share my experience in dealing with this frustrating epidemic. If you start to notice any or all of the following symptoms, it’s time to reevaluate stimulants in your diet and how they could be affecting your adrenals.
