Adrenal fatigue and HPA axis dysregulation (HPA-D)
The term “adrenal fatigue” applies to a family of symptoms, including fatigue, nervousness, brain fog, sleep issues, and digestive problems. In essence, what we call “adrenal fatigue” is your body constantly experiencing a fight-or-flight response, which in turn leads to immune system burnout. People with symptoms of “adrenal fatigue” are often tired during the day, wired at night, and experiencing chronic stress all the dang time. On top of that, they can have body aches, lightheadedness, hair loss, and GI issues. Why do we keep putting “adrenal fatigue” in quotes? Here’s why: your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys, secrete hormones, including cortisol. The idea behind adrenal fatigue is that as your body experiences stress, more cortisol is released, leading to low cortisol in your adrenal glands (they are tired!). However, many people with adrenal fatigue symptoms actually have normal or high cortisol levels. While the term “adrenal fatigue” is recognized by modern practitioners, it has yet to be accepted as a conventional diagnosis. Why? Because this term is really a summary of stress response symptoms that are often caused by a hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis dysregulation or dysfunction, which plays a role in your response to stress. Basically, HPA-D is our stress response system. Calling it “adrenal fatigue” is actually incorrect terminology, though it has gained popularity. (Do note that it could also be adrenal insufficiency or, in extreme cases of low cortisol, Addison’s disease. Best to get it checked out!) If you’re experiencing adrenal fatigue symptoms, advocate for yourself. Don’t doubt your symptoms! Consulting with practitioners of functional and alternative medicine is a great first step to breaking the cycle of HPA axis dysfunction. Whether you call it “adrenal fatigue” or something else, getting well is what matters most.

What’s your favorite remedy for adrenal fatigue? As much as I love NYC, my adrenals burn out quickly from living here. Thanks friends! #alwaystired 😴
Hi friends! I’ve been dealing with what doctors say is lyme, adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue for almost seven years. A lot of my symptoms have improved over the years but the one that remains is chronic fatigue not even fatigue...exhaustion. Sometimes I think I may have Candida or mercury poisoning but I don’t know. Anyone else?
Do you think adrenal fatigue is real, even though it’s not recognized by allopathic medicine? I ordered a supplement by a Dr. Stengler online, because the testimonials were awesome and it has a 90-day money back deal. It contains ashwaganda and rhodiola roses, some B vitamins and probiotic blend. I’ve had luck with adaptive s and probiotics before.

The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution: A Proven 4-Week Program to Rescue Your Metabolism, Hormones, Mind & Mood
A Yale-trained, board-certified family physician with a specialty in women's health and obstetrics delivers a proven 28-day program to heal the overwhelmed, overloaded systems, and prevent and reverse the myriad of symptoms affecting the vast majority of women today. Weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, hormonal imbalances, and autoimmune conditions—for years, health practitioners have commonly viewed each as individual health problems resulting from a patient’s genetic bad luck, poor lifestyle choices, or lack of willpower. Patients, too, have turned to different doctors to alleviate their specific symptoms: an endocrinologist for a thyroid problem; a gynecologist for hormonal issues; an internist for weight, diabetes, and high blood pressure; a rheumatologist for joint problems, and even to therapists or psychologists. While these ailments may seem unrelated, Dr. Aviva Romm contends that they are intrinsically connected by what she calls Survival Overdrive Syndrome, a condition that occurs when the body becomes overloaded. SOS can result from childhood survival patterns or adult life stressors that are compounded by foods we eat, toxins in our environment, viral infections, lack of sleep, disrupted gut microflora, and even prescribed medications. Two of the systems most affected are the adrenal system and the thyroid, which control mood, hormones, inflammation, immunity, energy, weight, will power, blood sugar balance, cholesterol, sleep, and a host of other bodily functions. When these systems become overwhelmed they lead to symptoms that can develop into full blow illnesses, including diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and heart disease—all of which have medically provable origins in SOS. The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution explains SOS, how it impacts our bodies and can lead to illness, and most importantly, offers a drug-free cure developed through Dr. Romm’s research and clinical work with tens of thousands of patients. In as little as two weeks, you can lose excess weight, discover increased energy, improve sleep, and feel better. With The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution, you can rescue your metabolism, hormones, mind and mood—and achieve long-lasting health.

Taking Supplements And Eating Right http://learntruehealth.com/taking-supplements-eating-right/ My life had a tremendous positive shift when I started taking supplements in my early 30s. My health had been such a roller coaster before that. And now that I'm pretty much healed, I'm so excited to share a lot of information with you! My colleague Jennifer Saltzman is still with us for this episode because we have so much to share about taking supplements and eating right. The Politics Behind Supplements Taking supplements is not just about popping pills and praying you'd get healthy. There are a lot of supplements available in the market. But before taking supplements, you must first make sure they are safe. You also need to determine if you need to take that particular supplement. Experts like Jennifer Saltzman can provide you a wealth of advice before zeroing in on what supplements are right for you. Check out our supplements link at the end of this article. "I think there is no quality control. That's why we have to consider proven results. However, no quality control is a good thing." And what do I mean by that? Well, you certainly don't want the FDA to control the supplements because the FDA and big pharmaceutical companies allegedly have a conspiracy going on. "There's a revolving door of FDA executives being hired by big pharmaceutical companies and vice versa. Ultimately, they're all in each other's pockets." At some level, they want to protect humans. However, there is also enough room to manipulate us so that they could take away or control supplements. Benefits Of Taking Supplements If you eat all the right foods, you don't have to take supplements. Taking supplements become necessary because we don't eat right all the time and all the right foods are not available all the time. Supplements fill those nutritional gaps in our diet. Although it is not clear that taking supplements can reverse any chronic disease, it does make the body stronger. I have been on supplements for years and I have noticed that sometimes, I am not negatively affected anymore by certain foods that have otherwise made me sick in the past. "My body has been built so strong, now that I'm not depleted in vitamins and minerals. Consequently, my body it handles food so much more gently now compared to ten years ago when I would be a hot mess." 12 Bad Foods If you have been a regular listener of my podcast, you know how much I adore Dr. Joel Wallach. He is one of my heroes and my cookbook was largely inspired by his philosophy of what it means to eat right. My cookbook, which is available for free on the Learn True Health website, lists down the 12 foods and food components everyone should avoid to prevent disease and live a quality life. The 12 foods are: Barley Wheat Rye Oats Corn Soy Nitrates/ Nitrites Fried foods Oil in a bottle Well-done red meat Carbonated beverages Skins of baked root vegetables "Grains ruin digestion, and the body is not meant to eat it. You can have rice once in a while, but if you go grain free, you don't have to worry about gluten." There are many ways to go grain-free. A perfect example is eating cauliflower rice. Lentil pasta is the healthier and tastier alternative to wheat-based pasta. A dose of healthy fats is also good. You must, however, choose the right kind of oil because any oil goes rancid if over-exposed to air. As for the liquid intake, never drink sodas before or after meals. I know most of you out there have your parents tell you that drinking sodas are bad for you. And it's true! Carbonated drinks mess up our stomach acids. "The stomach is smart, and we shouldn't mess with it. It has its wave of acids. Before meals, take digestive enzymes that support h..."

Your adrenals are important because they help you respond to stress. If you have chronic stress, your adrenals get beat up, and your energy plummets and it becomes difficult to manage your life. You could feel tired and wired, all at the same time. You might get palpitations or feel anxious or have trouble sleeping. You might crave salt. You may get dizzy when you stand up. You might have low blood pressure. You might even have sugar cravings, because your body can’t regulate your blood sugar properly. All these are clues that you could have adrenal problems.
