Today we’re going to talk about adrenal fatigue and what causes adrenal fatigue.

What are the adrenal glands?
The adrenal glands are two triangle-shaped glands. There is one on top of each of your kidneys. The adrenal glands have an outside and an inside. We’re going to be primarily talking about the hormones on the outside—especially cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone. 

A short amount of stress is good for you — for example, intermittent fasting, intermittent exercise, or a cold shower. With adrenal fatigue, it’s chronic stress that breaks it down. When you have too much cortisol, you develop cortisol resistance, and your cortisol doesn’t really work anymore. With this situation, you have symptoms of high cortisol in certain parts of the body, and low cortisol in other parts of the body.

The biggest adrenal fatigue symptoms are:

• Fatigue
• Inability to sleep
• Feeling run down
• Not being able to rejuvenate

The 7 adrenal fatigue causes:

1. Chronic lack of sleep (lower your stress levels, apply my acupressure techniques)  
2. Chronic high amounts of coffee or caffeine (depletes vitamin B1, calcium, and potassium)
3. No exercise 
4. Chronic stress/shock 
5. Low nutrients (low vitamin C, vitamin B1, zinc, magnesium, potassium, vitamin D) (from refined carbs, alcohol, no veggies, no sun, low HCL, phytic acid)
6. Chronic pain and inflammation (do intermittent fasting, take vitamin D)
7. Chronic infection—EBV, CMV, TB (take oregano oil, try ozone therapy)

A few more points about adrenal fatigue:

• You may have more stress and more issues after menopause because your adrenal glands have to back up the ovaries. 

• I recommend watching my acupressure video (the stress webinar). 

• Try using my Adrenal & Cortisol Relief and my Adrenal Stress Advanced Formula products in combination. 

• The chronic use of Prednisone can weaken your adrenals.
