Vital Data On Adrenals

Adrenal fatigue is often a cause or a contributing factor to many conditions of seemingly unknown or mysterious origin. Simply taking nutritional support for the problem is often inadequate and does not address the cause.

Unless the underlying issues causing adrenal exhaustion are successfully addressed the glands will continue to cause problems.

Adrenal glands initiate and direct various responses to many types of stress reactions from internal and external forces. They are essential in maintaining normal blood sugar levels, healing damaged tissue, elevating resistance to disease, electrolyte (salt & mineral) balance, adapting blood pressure to postural changes, and many more functions. The adrenals are also involved with immunity. They produce both pro and anti-inflammatory hormones. Long term immune and frequent low-grade infections can over tax your adrenals.

Think of your adrenal glands as stress handling glands. There are basically 4 types of stress that our adrenals help us to deal with.

  1. Physical: fatigue, over-exertion, trauma (falls, injuries, burns, lacerations, surgeries, etc.)
  2. Chemical: poor nutrition, excess sugar, food additives and preservatives, food & beverage dyes, drugs (nearly all medications can burn out the adrenals, especially when taken over time.)
  3. Thermal: over heating or over chilling the body, sudden changes in temperature exposure (going from air conditioning to hot & humid, being underdressed, wet hair in cold temperatures, etc.)
  4. Emotional: overwhelmed, a traumatic disagreement, loss of a job, death of a loved one, a survival threat, etc.

We all have stress in our lives. The problems arise when our bodies are unable to handle the stress.

Published reports state that over 50% of visits to doctors are for disorders related to stress handling.

Food allergies and toxins are frequently found as causes of adrenal exhaustion. Many toxicity problems are not caused by the toxins as much as by the malfunctioning of the body’s own detoxification mechanisms.

Using our testing methods we are able to get to the core level (and often hidden) issues while bypassing the uncertainty of traditional medical testing. This typically eliminates unnecessary procedures, saves grief, suffering and many times several thousand dollars.
