Fatigue + Adrenal Issues

Do you feel unmotivated, flat and feel you are just surviving each day?

 

A feeling of tiredness can at times be a normal part of life, however when fatigue starts to control your life where you are purely surviving on sugar or coffee to keep up with your fast paced lifestyle or using  stimulants to curb that 2-4pm tiredness to only turn around and feel if not worse the following day even though you may have slept well. 

 

When fatigue becomes constant and affects our ability to work, perform daily tasks or starts to affect other areas of health and our quality of life then it must be addressed.

Fatigue often occurs after a period of long-term stress which a stressful event or period of time may create what is  known as our fight or flight response.

 

Many are aware of that adrenalin rush triggered from  acute stress. The problem here is,  when you are constantly stressed, or in fight or flight,  the adrenal glands (located on top of the kidneys) release a stress hormone, called cortisol and continual cortisol production has negative effects on the body, one very common one - fatigue. 

We often associate stress as something that only happens when we are rushed, angry or feeling on edge with work or family life, however stress on the body can be anything from infection, Inflammation, sleep deprivation and chemical exposure.
