How are your adrenal glands doing? Adrenal Fatigue Test is a good assessment to determine your adrenal hormones and adrenal health!
Adrenal Fatigue can be the cause of your fatigue, anxiety, depression, weight gain, hormonal imbalance, infertility, diabetes & blood sugar imbalances, exhaustion, low sex drive for women and men, sleep issues and immune system dysregulation such as allergies and chronic infections!
All of us experience stress on some level, some stress is healthy and totally normal. However, over time, stress can become chronic and impact our overall health. Adrenal fatigue is a state of low resilience to stress and is dependent on many factors. Generally, it is a cortisol imbalance, also known as “mild adrenocortical deficiency”.
Your adrenal glands are responsible to produce cortisol, adrenaline and sex hormones. When you are physically or emotionally stressed, your body shifts into producing more cortisol and puts itself into a ‘fight or flight’ mode. The increase in cortisol happens due to low resiliency to stress, as higher cortisol allows you to sustain the energy you need for that time. Over time, this results in a few possibilities – difficulty breaking down your stress hormone making you more anxious (“wired but tired”), which is a state of too much cortisol. After a while, your adrenals get tired and you will shift into extreme exhaustion (low cortisol).
Neither high cortisol or low cortisol are good as both have a huge impact on your hormones and health factors. This is why adrenal testing is important, as it will show your exact hormonal patterns and tendencies.
