Dealing with Chronic Adrenal Fatigue

We all are struggling to cope with life on a day to day basis. We want the best for ourselves and our families. We want the best career, the best house, the most luxurious lifestyle, a good and supportive family and lots of money in the bank. We have a lot of expectations from ourselves and there are others who also expect a lot from us, thus surmounting the pressure on ourselves. All these wants are positive, but in securing them the trade-off is ill health and stress. These days a lot of people are suffering from a condition called chronic adrenal fatigue.

So what exactly is this chronic adrenal fatigue? This is a condition which affects our adrenal gland. This gland is a very important and essential part of our body, as it produces as well as releases pertinent hormones such as adrenalin, endorphins, testosterone, estrogen, and cortisol. The function of this very important adrenal gland is also to regulate the hormones in our bodies. These hormones are produced when our body is under stress. These hormones reflect what we feel and think. The response of the body to deal with stress and pressure is the secretion and release of these various hormones.

When someone suffers from chronic adrenal fatigue, the production of hormones is affected. The body secretes too many hormones in large amounts to deal with the stress. This means the adrenal glands are working overtime which will only result in exhaustion of the adrenal glands which will, in turn, lower the hormone production in our bodies. The consequence will be that we will feel tired easily and we will be exhausted most of the time. Even a sound sleep cannot replenish the energies of chronic adrenal fatigue sufferers. They will also feel irritable and moody which can further lead to depression.

The best way to deal with chronic adrenal fatigue is to give ourselves ample amount of rest. Along with rest, proper nutrition and techniques to deal with stress need to be taken into consideration. The little bit of self-indulgence and pampering will also contribute to the treatment of chronic adrenal fatigue.
