Hey, Health Stoppers!
Do you experience relentless fatigue that you just can't shake? Does it feel like you're always tired? Are you reaching for a cup of coffee every fifteen minutes? And despite feeling like you're ready to fall over all day, are you unable to sleep when you finally get the chance? Insomnia, anyone?
You might be experiencing adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue is one of the most pervasive ailments of the modern age.Continuous exposure to stimulation, be it physical or mental (coffee and Facebook scroll-holes, anyone?), leads to an over-taxing of the adrenal glands, resulting in an overproduction of cortisol, the 'stress hormone', and a decrease in DHEA.
The result of a high cortisol to DHEA level may be :
Reduced insulin sensitivity, reduced glucose utilization, and increased blood sugar, which may lead to diabetes.
Reduced secretory IgA (the main cellular defense factor), natural killer (NK) cell and T-lymphocyte activity which may lead to increased chances of getting infections such as Herpes, yeast overgrowth, and viral infections.
A block in calcium absorption results in an increased loss in bone mass. The demineralization of bone occurs, which may lead to osteoporosis.
Increased fat accumulation around the waist and protein breakdown. This may lead to muscle wasting, an inability to reduce weight.
An increased in water and salt retention, possibly leading to high blood pressure at first, with low blood pressure as the condition worsens.
Estrogen dominance, which may lead to PMS, uterine fibroids, and breast cancer.
