In our last article we discussed the nature of adrenal exhaustion and the different stages leading up to it. Fortunately this state can be reversed once adrenal health is regulated and normalised. It is estimated that up to 80 per cent of people in the world suffer from adrenal fatigue. What we want to be careful about is failing to recognise the symptoms in the early stages. Body aches, trouble concentrating, racing thoughts, irritability and moodiness, tired all the time, overwhelmed, hormonal imbalance and cravings for stimulants to help increase our energy levels are all symptoms of adrenal exhaustion and fatigue.
Or the other side of the coin, is self-diagnosing adrenal fatigue and administering a rigorous detoxification program in a misguided effort to manage flagging adrenals. Often this ends up with the individual feeling worse when they retoxify, going back to a normal diet.
