Modern lifestyles have had a greater impact on the adrenal glands than any other system in the body. With exposure to stressors (emotional, physical, environmental, or perceived stimuli), our adrenals go to work. And with chronic stressors, our adrenals can go into overdrive until they eventually decline in function. Historically, human stressors came in shorter bursts. Nowadays, we can be under stress from morning until night, and sometimes even during sleep. When the adrenal glands become affected by constant stress, you feel fatigued. Adrenal fatigue plays a role in many other health concerns such as allergies, hypoglycemia, lightheadedness, food cravings, PMS and menopausal disorders, fibromyalgia, poor immunity, insomnia, autoimmune conditions, accelerated aging, environmental sensitivities, and of course, chronic fatigue syndrome. In a self-perpetuating cycle, chronic disease conversely contributes to adrenal fatigue.
The adrenal glands and the thyroid glands work together for hormonal harmony. The thyroid is the butterfly-shaped gland in your neck and it contributes to many critical health functions. When it is working optimally, you will have good energy, focus, and concentration, optimal metabolism, temperature regulation, healthy hair, skin, and nails. We treat all conditions of the thyroid gland – underactive, overactive, and autoimmune thyroiditis. When the thyroid and adrenal glands are healthy, you will notice a direct impact on the quality of life in every way.
