Are you so tired that you have to wonder “what is going on?”; Especially if you try to do everything right like trying to eat healthy, and trying to exercise. You get a good night’s sleep, have good relationships, kids mostly behave, work is productive, and your blood work results keep coming back perfect. It seems like life is not that bad, except for one problem- you are always tired! If this sounds familiar, it may be time to take a look at your adrenals.
The adrenal glands, located on top of each kidney are two small glands that can affect your energy level when they are not working optimally. The adrenals are imperative because they produce hormones that are essential like cortisol which provides energy and helps regulate the metabolism. Adrenaline is another hormone released by the adrenals during the stressful fight or flight situations in life. The adrenals help the body to deal with stress while helping you not burn out and get too fatigued. However, if your adrenals get too stressed or overworked, then you can experience a significant amount of fatigue that won’t go away until your adrenals are properly supported.
Here are a few adrenal fatigue symptoms; excessive fatigue (regardless of sufficient amount of sleep), trouble concentrating, sensitivity to cold, feeling stressed or run down, overwhelmed, evening energy, craving salt or sweets. The first step in finding out if you have adrenal fatigue is to do an adrenal saliva test kit. The test kit gets mailed directly to you, and then you collect samples of your saliva and send it to our lab- that is it! It’s very easy to test to do.
