Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue is something that a lot of people are hearing about from others or on the internet. They go into their providers however and they say that it doesn’t exist. The more comprehensive title would be HPA Axis Dysfunction. So the hippocampus, the pituitary, and the adrenal system. There is dysfunction in our system when we are experiencing a lot of stress. In our current environment, I can tell you we are all experiencing way too much stress and we forget to calm down, we forget to breath. There are ways to support this. At my office there are ways of actually checking it. The difference is when you go into a medical practice, they are looking at when it gets to disease function and they diagnose when they can use a medication. Usually adrenal fatigue is treated with lifestyle management and with supplements. There are some fields of medicine that may not even agree with this. In the functional medicine world however, we see this issue as a very very important component of maintaining good health.
