How to cure adrenal fatigue.

Those who suffer from an adrenal fatigue disorder know how life-altering it can be. Everyone knows what it's like to feel exhausted for days on end, to experience insomnia, or to feel overwhelmed by the stresses of everyday living, but for those living with a fatigue disorder, these and other symptoms take over their lives, profoundly affecting basic quality of living.

Diet plays a major part in causing adrenal fatigue as eating too much sugar and refined, or ground, carbohydrates, makes the body release too much insulin from sudden spikes in the body's processing of sugar. Blood sugar rises too quickly as the sugar is suddenly released into the bloodstream. Because the body then releases too much insulin to combat this sudden assault, the sugar is then brought down too quickly, therefore causing one to feel sleepy or lethargic. Processed foods in general should be avoided if at all possible.

Common symptoms include:
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Low Stamina
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Depression
  • Sensitivity to Cold
Because other medical conditions can cause many of the same symptoms, such as hypothyroidism, it is very important to see an adrenal fatigue doctor, one who is familiar with the disorder and knows how to treat it successfully.

Along with diet, stress can lower the body's defenses, leading to serious physical symptoms of a chronic fatigue condition. Some treatments for fatigue disorders include changes in diet which include cutting out processed foods, sugar, and caffeine, drinking more water and staying away from sodas and certain juices that actually act as diuretics, and learning stress-relieving techniques. Supplements such as vitamin C and a multi-vitamin can help to ensure the body is getting enough nutrients, as eating right is not always possible. For those who need more help, there are many supplements made specifically for addressing adrenal fatigue disorders, as well.

Fatigue disorders can interfere with one's ability to enjoy life to its fullest, so seeking help is the first step in taking life by the horns and enjoying it once again.
