Many people are unaware that they have adrenal fatigue until it becomes a more serious problem. This is because adrenal fatigue is not recognized as a legitimate medical condition by many in the medical community. However, there are many books available on the topic of adrenal fatigue, and these adrenal fatigue books can be very helpful in understanding this condition.
One such book is The Stress Connection by Drs. Eldred and Ava Taylor. By reading their adrenal fatigue book you will learn how to diagnose and treat adrenal gland dysfunction and stress-related illnesses using bioidentical hormone replacement and supplements, making changes include eating a balanced diet, getting enough exercise, and reducing stress levels. Taylor also recommends taking supplements such as adrenal gland extracts, adaptogens, phosphatidylserine, and vitamins to help support adrenal health.
The term adrenal fatigue is used to describe a number of symptoms that are said to be caused by exhausted and depleted adrenal glands. Adrenal fatigue is a growing problem in America. It’s not just a problem for the elderly, it’s a problem for everyone. According to the Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome Foundation, adrenal fatigue is a “syndrome caused by inadequate or excessive stress.” Symptoms of adrenal fatigue can include chronic tiredness, difficulty recovering from workouts and everyday stress, mood swings, poor sleep quality, anxiety, weight gain, needing to take a nap, nausea, vomiting, and a general feeling of being off.
On the opposite side of the spectrum, the adrenals can become overactive. The adrenal glands produce cortisol, a hormone that helps the body respond to stress. When the adrenals are overactive, they produce too much cortisol, which can lead to a variety of health problems. Symptoms of this adrenal dysfunction include fatigue, anxiety, irritability, feeling overwhelmed and wired, insomnia, and weight gain. Diseases caused by elevated cortisol levels include high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, and heart disease. There are several things that can be done to help address elevated cortisol levels caused by overactive adrenal glands. One is to take phosphatidylserine supplements.
Stress either emotional or physical can lead to adrenal gland fatigue or overactive adrenals. Stress is defined as any disruption of homeostasis or balance. In present times, it is hard to maintain a balanced and stress-free life given the many demands and challenges that we face each day. We are bombarded with psychological and physical stressors on a regular basis that we have all come to accept as a normal part of life. It is commonplace to brag about how stressed we are as if it were a badge of honor. Multitasking, long work hours, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, and family and social obligations eventually take their toll on us mentally and physically leaving us exhausted and worn out.
Everyone reacts differently to stress, depending on his or her genetic makeup, family upbringing, and social circumstances. Certain events are more likely to trigger extreme stress responses. These events include the death of a spouse or family member, marriage, birth of a child, divorce or separation, injury or illness, being fired from a job, retirement, imprisonment, financial problems, and any major life-altering events. One common thread that these events have in common is that their outcome is either uncontrollable or unpredictable and often leaves one feeling helpless and vulnerable. Stress can also be caused by physical factors such as chronic infections and illnesses, inflammation and pain, food intolerance, heavy metal, and environmental toxins, temperature extremes, sleep deprivation, excessive exercise, nutritional imbalances, prescription medications, surgery, and trauma. Stress has existed since the beginning of time. Its effects are far-reaching for all living organisms.
