Why Don’t I Have Any Energy? Part 4 – Adrenal Glands and Hormones

The adrenal glands sit on top of each of your kidneys and produce a number of hormones, especially the hormones that help your body react to stress.  It doesn’t matter whether the stress is physical or emotional, real or imagined, your body sends signals for the adrenal glands to secrete these hormones.

Chronic stress leads to overstimulation of the adrenal glands, high levels of adrenal hormones in the blood, and general imbalances in your hormone and nutrient levels.  People with this problem often feel “wired and tired”, have difficulty sleeping, high blood pressure, indigestion and reflux, crave stimulants, sugar, and salt, and may feel jittery or anxious.  Eventually, the adrenal glands become so worn out that they can’t keep producing hormones when they are needed.  People with this problem may have extreme fatigue, weak immune systems, asthma, low blood pressure, or may get dizzy when they get up from a lying or seated position.

Simple and non-invasive tests can indicate exactly how your adrenal glands are functioning throughout the day and help create a plan to balance the stress in your life and rebuild the adrenal system so you can feel your best.  Make an appointment today to get on the path to wellness.
