WHAT IS ADRENAL FATIGUE?
Adrenal fatigue and cortisol imbalance is the body’s reaction to prolonged stress. When we are under stress, our adrenal glands produce more cortisol – our stress hormone. Short-term, more cortisol helps us manage mental, emotional, and physical stressors. The problem occurs when stress is prolonged. At first, the body produces more and more cortisol which can negatively affect sleep, energy, moods, and weight. Over time, our bodies can become resistant to cortisol, or become unable to produce sufficient cortisol leading to adrenal fatigue where the above symptoms amplify and become chronic. The most common effects of cortisol imbalances are:
Blood Sugar Issues
Anxiety & Depression
Weight Gain in the Abdomen
Problems Sleeping & Low Energy
Food Allergies & Gut Issues
