Adrenal Fatigue & Stress Treatment

Our adrenal glands create the hormone, cortisol, in response to long term stress – including mental stress, emotional stress physical stress. Cortisol is useful to help us manage stress. However, excess cortisol can result in blood sugar issues, weight gain in the abdomen, problems sleeping, thinning hair and skin, and more. Over time, our bodies can become resistant to cortisol, or become unable to produce cortisol leading to adrenal fatigue.

Our Naturopathic Doctors are experts in identifying adrenal issues, offer advanced laboratory testing, and most importantly effective adrenal fatigue treatments to get you feeling your best.

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Our adrenal glands produce cortisol in response to physical stress (such as chronic pain or overexercising) or mental stress (such as long workweeks) or emotional stress (such as prolonged anxiety). Cortisol helps our brains and body better manage stress.

If the stressor continues for a prolonged period of time, our bodies become resistant to cortisol, much like a diabetic becomes resistant to insulin. Therefore the body must produce more and more to have the same effect. Next, the adrenal glands can become fatigued, and their production of cortisol can tank. When this happens, it is known as adrenal fatigue. With adrenal fatigue, it is common to feel exhausted and have issues with sleep, low blood sugar, and low blood pressure.

Also, the adrenal glands are closely connected to the thyroid and other hormones. As a result, other hormone imbalances may result. It is important to investigate all hormone connections since there is so much overlap.
