Treating Chronic Fatigue and Adrenal Fatigue Naturally
Yes its that time of the year when STRESS takes over and a lot of us develop Adrenal fatigue with out even knowing it.
The adrenal glands sit over the kidneys, where they play a significant role in the body, secreting more than 50 hormones necessary for life, including epinephrine (adrena...line), cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), progesterone and testosterone. Since they produce so many essential hormones, the adrenal glands are responsible for many of the functions we need to stay alive and healthy, including:
•Energy production - carbohydrate, protein and fat conversion to blood glucose for energy
•Fluid and electrolyte balance
One hormone in particular, cortisol, is extremely important for keeping our body systems in balance, as well as protecting our cells. For example:
•It controls the strength of the immune system: Too much cortisol weakens the immune system, setting the motions for increased susceptibility to infections and cancer, while too little leads to an overactive immune system and autoimmune disease.
•It normalizes blood sugar.
•It regulates blood pressure.
