Adrenal Exhaustion, sometimes called Addison’s Disease is thought to be wildly under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed in the U.S. population.
What Causes Adrenal Exhaustion or Addison’s Disease?
There are numerous potential causes for the gradual failure of adrenal glands. The Addison’s Disease patient often suffers from larger endocrine system problems brought on by environmental factors, nutrition, and as usual, stress. Both generalized and acute levels of stress can induce major episodes of adrenal exhaustion, as the already taxed system tries to keep up with the demands to produce adequate levels of adrenaline for given situations.
What Are The Symptoms of Adrenal Exhaustion
The primary symptoms of adrenal exhaustion or Addison’s Disease are:
- Trouble getting out of bed in the morning
- Chronic tiredness even after you wake up in the morning
- Trouble thinking clearly or finishing assigned tasks
This usually is attributed to constant stress, from varying reasons, but nutrition is not sufficiently studied or remedied in most cases of Addisons. Whole food sources of adrenal glands and hypothalamus can be found at most local butchers, but are not a pleasant solution for most people. The concentrated whole food supplements in our protocol below are a more realistic method of getting the nutrition your body needs to nourish your endocrine system end-to-end. The Ageless Thyroid will support to loop your hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal hormonal axis (HPA Axis) back together and the other supplements will support the structure and function of the adrenal gland specifically.
If you suffer from symptoms of exhaustion, but also experience regular anxiety you may have a different, but related condition known as Hypoadrenia. You can learn about the slightly different symptoms of Hypoadrenia and our protocol for Hypoadrenia here.
