Dr. Henry Emmons says: “Adrenal fatigue is not a term accepted by mainstream medicine. Trying to care for symptoms like those above will usually start with routine blood tests that look for adrenal insufficiency (known as Addison’s disease). The result will likely be normal. Most doctors will then look for other causes of the fatigue, doing routine blood tests to rule out things like low iron, low hemoglobin, or a thyroid problem. After this series, symptoms will usually be attributed to untreated depression or fibromyalgia. Treatments (if any are offered) may focus on symptom relief without ever finding an underlying cause. • A more holistic practitioner may diagnose adrenal fatigue based on your history and symptoms or as result of a more nuanced set of tests that look at cortisol levels over the course of a day. Normally, cortisol fluctuates in a predictable pattern. It should rise throughout the morning, drop a bit in early afternoon, then rally again by late afternoon. It then drops again in the evening to facilitate deep sleep, reaches its lowest point in the middle of the night, and then rises again through the morning. • In those diagnosed with adrenal fatigue, that pattern is disrupted. It may be a flatter line, with less variability over the course of the day. The belief is that when someone in this state experiences stress, their adrenals don’t respond as effectively and the stress hormones don’t rise enough (or at all).” • Read the entire article here: https://www.naturalmentalhealth.com/blog/what-is-adrenal-fatigue • #holistichealth #holisticwellness #adrenalfatigue #whatisadrenalfatigue #westernmedicine #holisticmedicine #healnaturally #naturalmentalhealth #holisticlifestyle #intuitiveliving #lifelessons #naturalremedies #growthmindset #positiveenergy #integrativementalhealth #lifestylemedicine #mentalhealthmatters #integrate #eatwell #innerself #mindfulness #stillness #naturelover #fatigue #curefatigue #stressrelief #naturalstressrelief #soothingsunday #nostress #stressfree
