Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Do You Suffer From Adrenal Fatigue?

Are you:

  • Tired for no reason?
  • Have trouble getting up in the morning?
  • Need coffee, colas, salty or sweet snacks to keep going?
  • Feeling rundown or overwhelmed?
  • Can’t bounce back from stress or illness?
  • Crave salty and/or sweet snacks?
  • Feeling best only after 6 PM?
  • General feeling of “malaise?”

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions you may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue.

Adrenal Fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a “syndrome,” that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger. You may look and act relatively normal with Adrenal Fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you live with a general sense of un-wellness, tiredness or “gray” feelings.

Who gets Adrenal Fatigue?

Anyone can suffer from Adrenal Fatigue at some time in his or her life. An illness, a life crisis, or a continuing difficult situation can drain the adrenal resources of even the healthiest person. Poor or irregular eating habits, lack of “downtime”, consistent or unrelieved stress (now or in the recent past), too little sleep or poor quality of sleep, sub-optimal hormone levels, all make a person more prone to Adrenal Fatigue.

Adrenal Fatigue affects an estimated 80% of people living in industrialized countries at one time or another in their lives, yet it has been ignored and largely untreated by the medical community. Conventional medicine only recognizes it in its most severe forms of Addison’s Disease or Cushing Disease.

Unless you suffer from one of these extreme forms of adrenal fatigue, you are considered to be within the “NORMAL” lab range. You are then told (1) you are depressed so take an anti-depressant or seek counseling and/or (2) it is all in your head, and/or (3) you are getting old.

People suffering from Adrenal Fatigue often have to use coffee, colas and other stimulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up during the day.

Adrenal Fatigue Burnout Questionnaire

The following questionnaire will help you determine if you have symptoms of a syndrome popularly known as “burnout”. Burnout refers specifically to a type of Adrenal Fatigue brought about by lifestyle factors such as working too hard, deaths in the family, divorce, job loss, juggling too many activities, etc.

Give each question a value ranging from 0-5 with “0? representing not being true for you and “5? describing you very well. The more high numbers you have, the more likely you have some degree of adrenal fatigue.
