The Best Ways to Relieve Stress, Anxiety, and Adrenal Fatigue!

Do you find yourself anxious and overwhelmed throughout the day? Ever get 8+ hours of sleep but still wake up tired? Or wake up in the middle of the night wide awake? These patterns could be signs of an adrenal gland problem! The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones you can’t live without, including sex hormones and cortisol. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions! Cortisol should be high in the morning, giving you the energy to get through the day, and low at night to help you fall asleep. However, your glands may make too much or too little of these hormones with adrenal gland disorders. In addition, high-stress environments in today’s society can put your body under chronic stress! Whether you are dealing with situations at work or at home, sometimes we get into a mode where our cortisol is up all the time and can make you feel overwhelmed and anxious. Stress supplements can help you feel calm and at ease. 

Your Adrenal Glands Can Become Fatigued

After a while, the adrenal glands can become fatigued, and you don’t get the energy you need, resulting in waking up tired or in the middle of the night. Fatigue, anxiety, inability to handle stress, muscle aches, decreased mood, lack of motivation, and concentration problems are all hallmark symptoms of adrenal gland dysfunction! In most cases, adrenal fatigue sufferers are likely misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety disorder, and attention-deficient disorder. Fortunately, there are natural solutions to improve adrenal fatigue! 

Supplements Can Help Fatigued Adrenal Glands

Supplements can help support adrenal gland function.  Adrenal gland extracts derived from animal adrenal glands was first used by Sir William Osler who is considered the father of modern medicine and a pioneer in the treatment of adrenal gland dysfunction. 

 Ashwagandha, Schisandra, Rhodiola, and ginseng, are herbs that contain adaptogens that can aid the body in the stress response.  Adaptogens contain heat shock proteins that enable living beings to adapt to stress.  

 Be sure to ask your holistic doctor how adrenal support supplements can help restore adrenal gland function.
