Wednesday, August 08, 2012 by: Craig Stellpflug

(NaturalNews) Are you tired all the time? Sleepy during the day but can’t sleep at night? So stressed out you can’t think straight? Crabby, depressed, sick all the time? Muscle weakness, chronic pain, dizziness? These are just a few of the classic symptoms of adrenal fatigue.

80 percent of people will suffer adrenal fatigue at some point in their lives, says Dr. James Wilson, author of the best-selling book Adrenal Fatigue: 21st Century Stress Syndrome.” When your adrenal glands have been “overworked,” they cannot do their job very well and any additional stress can strongly affect you, resulting in fatigue and other symptoms.

Adrenal glands function as your body’s “shock absorbers” by helping you to handle all forms of stress. But when you’re feeling stressed all the time, those glands become overworked and tired – a condition commonly called adrenal fatigue. When the adrenal glands fail to secrete enough cortisol, this causes energy dips during the day with spikes at night which disrupt sleep.

The dominating symptom is fatigue – a fatigue that cannot be relieved by prolonged rest or even sufficient amounts of sleep. Many individuals often manage what may be interpreted as a “normal” life with adrenal fatigue. However, a poorly functioning adrenal system leads to an imbalance of hormones that impact immune function, sleep, mood and energy levels.

In 1998, Dr. James Wilson noticed a distinct connection between increased stress levels and impaired function of the adrenal system.

I found the below article interesting and made me realize that maybe I am still dealing with adrenal faigute afterall, but maybe to a little lesser degree than before. Check it out:

 

The easy, relaxed lifestyle experienced by our ancestors no longer exists, and we’re not even aware of how much stress we’re under. The problem? “Our lifestyles have changed, but our bodies haven’t,” Dr. James Wilson said in his November lecture at the First Arizona Choices Exposition in Tucson, Ariz. A large portion of our population is feeling tired and stressed out, and we want to know why.

 

The adrenal glands sit over the kidneys, where they play a significant role in the body, secreting more than 50 hormones necessary for life, including epinephrine (adrenaline), cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), progesterone and testosterone. Since they produce so many essential hormones, theadrenal glands are responsible for many of the functions we need to stay alive and healthy, including:
