Holistic Solutions for Adrenal Fatigue
Have you ever felt like your body is starting to give out during the day? Do you feel dead tired despite sleeping the night away? If so, you may be experiencing adrenal fatigue. What some people don’t know is that adrenal fatigue is an extremely common ailment without knowing what it is.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is when there is a disruption in the adrenal glands ability to produce the hormone known as cortisol. Cortisol is a steroid-like hormone that plays many roles in the body such as a person’s immune response and metabolism. The adrenal glands are just above the kidneys and are called the body’s “hormonal powerhouse.”
Addressing Adrenal Fatigue with Natural Solutions
Adrenal fatigue doesn’t happen right off the bat as there are three different stages of it. Like some other bodily malfunctions, these stages can progress from mild to severe if left untreated.

Being stressed is often the main contributor to diseases and other illnesses. People can get stressed from many things like working too much or too hard, struggling with personal issues, children screaming at you, etc. This is how stress affects the adrenal glands; the cortisol in the person will peak earlier than normal, die out a bit and then rise back up early in the evening. You may be asking yourself “how does this impact the person?” For example, people will start to wake up earlier than they normally do and feel tired. However, later in the day, they’ll experience some kind of stressor and they will start feeling more awake.
When a person experiences adrenal burnout, they will feel very tired despite sleeping the recommended 6 to 7 hours. In rare cases, someone may experience a low DHEA and thyroid levels. Furthermore, if left untreated, someone may develop a higher risk of autoimmune disease.
Tired and Wired
The adrenal glands can also affect your sleep patterns. Having high cortisol levels at night can lead to a few things.
High cortisol levels can affect you, causing insomnia or insulin resistance.
- Insomnia: The adrenal glands produce an abnormal amount of cortisol which has been scientifically proven to cause insomnia as well as other sleeping problems.
- Insulin Resistance: Cortisol and insulin can be thought of as two sides of the same coin when it comes to hormones. Cortisol raises a person’s blood sugar where insulin lowers. If there were to be an imbalance, it could cause serious health issues like diabetes and obesity.
