Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands are chronically over worked.  The adrenal glands are triangle shaped endocrine glands that are ½ inch high and 3 inches long that rest on top of each kidney.  When under stress, they release hormones responsible for the “fight/flight” response, like cortisol and adrenaline.

These hormones are very useful under acute situations like running from a bear.  Cortisol and adrenaline shunts blood away from your GI tract and skin and shunts it toward organs needed during emergencies like running from a bear; muscles and heart.  That is why when scared and these hormones are active; people turn “white as a ghost” because blood is being shunted away from the skin and towards muscle and heart. It also makes your liver produce more sugar (gluconeogenesis) to support your hard working muscles and heart.  That’s fine when running from a bear.

You can achieve better romance, a more youthful appearance, increased energy, weight loss if desired, and more zest for life.
