Adrenal fatigue is estimated to affect over 80% of people in the world! The main culprits are chronic stress and lifestyle–they affect the body’s ability to recuperate from physical, mental, and emotional stress.
Most people have suffered from adrenal fatigue in their lifetime, whether for a short period or chronic condition. Symptoms include: body aches, trouble concentrating, racing thoughts, moodiness and irritability, always tired, feeling overwhelmed, hormone imbalance, and cravings for sweet or salty foods. Adrenal fatigue can also be a major cause of excess fat storage and low energy levels. These symptoms can easily be overlooked, but more people are becoming aware that they could be indicators of adrenal fatigue and not depression or chronic fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue is a condition, which occurs when your body can’t keep up with the amount of daily stress that many people experience. Wellness professionals believe than an episode of acute stress or prolonged, chronic stress can cause the adrenal glands to become overloaded and ineffective. Some causes of adrenal fatigue are: stressful emotional experiences such as divorce, death of a loved one, or surgery, exposure to environmental toxins and pollutants, prolonged stress due to financial hardships, unhealthy relationships, or bad work environments, negative thinking, emotional trauma, lack of sleep, poor diet, and lack of exercise.
When the adrenal glands stop producing hormones efficiently, every bodily function is affected. Some other symptoms commonly caused by adrenal fatigue include: morning fatigue or trouble waking up, decreased libido, depression, muscle weakness, poor focus, bone loss, inflammation, increased allergies, difficulty sleeping, irritability, fatigue, cravings for sugar, hair loss, weight gain, and muscle tension.
