What are the adrenal glands?
The adrenal glands sit just above the kidneys and perform several vital roles in maintaining your health. They control your body’s response to stress by releasing hormones like cortisol, DHEA, and epinephrine. These hormones regulate your heart rate, immune system, and energy storage.
Much of conventional medicine only recognizes adrenal dysfunction when it becomes dire, as in the case of Addison’s disease, an autoimmune condition in which the adrenals virtually cease all functioning.
What is adrenal fatigue?
When the adrenal glands are overstimulated for an extended time, they begin to weaken. Possible causes of extended stress are:
- Job stress
- Relationship problems
- Chronic disease
Eventually, the adrenals weaken so much that they just can’t respond in times of real need.
What are the symptoms of adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue symptoms often include:
- Constant tiredness or outright exhaustion
- Lack of enthusiasm
- Mild to moderate depression
These symptoms aren’t resolved by catching up on sleep. You may even awake after a solid night’s sleep feeling drained and exhausted.
How is adrenal fatigue treated?
Dr. Quiroz can help you make simple changes to your lifestyle so that your adrenal glands have the time necessary to recover. Vitamins and supplements help enhance healing, too. You may benefit from vitamins B-5, B-6, and B-12 as well as vitamin C and the mineral magnesium.
Dr. Quiroz may also recommend you take probiotics, which help improve digestion so you can better absorb the nutrients in the food you eat. Certain herbal supplements also help in healing the adrenals, such as licorice root, maca, ashwagandha, and Siberian ginseng, among others. Contact us today to get your treatment plan started!
