One of the most common symptoms that is treated at Moore Life Health Solutions is adrenal fatigue. However, it is also one of the most mistreated. Many medical doctors misdiagnose adrenal fatigue as the actual medical condition, instead of the symptom of a completely different condition. Dr. Moore uses a series of in depth tests and exams to determine the source of your fatigue and come up with a game plan to get patients feeling well again.
What is adrenal fatigue?
In a few words, fatigue is most commonly felt as a lack of energy. Individuals also react adversely to stress, and insomnia may ensue, leading to consistent fatigue. It can be a collection of a variety of symptoms and signs that occur when the adrenal glands are functioning below average. This tends to occur during high periods of stress or a chronic infection. Even though adrenal fatigue affects millions of individuals around the world, conventional medicine has not recognized it as a definite syndrome.
The adrenal glands consist of a much larger body system, playing only a small part of the adrenal system. They are endocrine glands that produce multiple types of hormones. Anatomically, the adrenal glands are found just on top of the kidneys, and they consist of multiple layers. From steroid like hormones to hormones that aid in the regulation of blood pressure, the adrenal glands are an important part of the endocrine system and hormone production.
Signs Of Adrenal Fatigue
When an individual is suffering from adrenal fatigue, you may not even notice a difference. Sufferers may act completely normal, yet they are living with an overall sense of fatigue, unwellness, or even depression like symptoms. In order to procure enough energy to last the day, sufferers of adrenal fatigue often turn to stimulants like soft drinks and coffee in order to get an easier start to their day.
Finding The Underlying Cause
Many patients who suffer from adrenal fatigue have an entire adrenal system that is defected. In order to treat these patients, we must treat the entire adrenal system and find the true, underlying cause, which is very often toxicity. Many times, vitamin supplementation may help; however, supplements are never the end all answer.
We understand that adrenal fatigue can greatly affect your daily life, causing havoc and depression. The less the adrenal glands are able to function, the greater effect it can have on an individual’s well being and energy level. Anyone can suffer from adrenal fatigue, whether it be due to a crisis, an illness, or a difficult situation. With the “get up and go” mentality in today’s day and age, more people are suffering from this condition from pushing themselves mentally and physically too hard.
