Adrenal Fatigue Denver Colorado
Experiencing adrenal fatigue in Denver or elsewhere in Colorado is not uncommon. The adrenal glands mobilize your body’s responses to every kind of stress (whether it’s physical, emotional, or psychological) through hormones that regulate energy production and storage, immune function, heart rate, muscle tone, and other processes that enable you to cope with the stress. If their response is inadequate, you are likely to experience some degree of adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is a collection of symptoms that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. It is a syndrome most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, and may also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections. If you are experiencing adrenal fatigue, it may also be due to such things as chronic stress, recurrent or chronic infections, nutritional deficiencies, and/or food allergies.
While it affects millions of people in the U.S., conventional medicine does not yet recognize it as a distinct syndrome. Its principal symptom is fatigue that’s not relieved by sleep accompanied by a general sense of unwellness or “gray” feelings. Symptoms include feeling tired for no reason, trouble getting up in the morning with ample amount of sleep, feeling rundown or overwhelmed, difficulty bouncing back from stress or illness, craving salty and sweet snacks, and feeling more alert after 6PM than any other time of the day. These symptoms contribute to:
- Memory Loss
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Thyroid Issues
- Gut Issues
- Increased Blood Pressure
- Frequent Illness
- Hormone Issues
Without protection from your adrenal glands, your immune system and resistance to infection are impaired.
