Hello, my name is Sarah and I have Adrenal Fatigue.
It’s pretty dreadful and it’s going to take a little while to heal completely. I attribute it to late nights working and a lot of stress!
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
The adrenals are part of the endocrine system and one of their functions is hormone production. Many times hormone imbalances are caused when the adrenals are stressed. When the adrenals are stressed, all other systems of the body suffer. It’s a domino effect that leaves you feeling horrible.
When your adrenal glands are over tired from being overworked, your lack of sleep, environmental toxins and even scars that are stressing your nervous system, adrenal fatigue sets in.
I’ve had 3 miscarriages through the years. One of the functions of the adrenal glands is maintaining pregnancy. I always thought it was low progesterone that contributed to my miscarriages and that makes perfect sense if you look at it by way of the adrenal glands. Since they are in charge of secreting hormones, if you are imbalanced, the adrenals may be the culprit.
What are the Signs of Adrenal Fatigue?
According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, common signs of adrenal fatigue include:
What Can I Do To Heal Adrenal Fatigue?
I have almost every symptom on that list. My adrenal fatigue goes in cycles and I’ve been feeling symptoms this time around for about 3 months. I was tested by a Nutritional Response Therapist and I am currently on a nutrition program designed for adrenal fatigue.
Something I’ve done over the last few years is drink an adaptogen herbal tea before bed. This was recommended to me by an herbalist friend of mine, Sarah Powell from Lilith’s Apothecary.
