It’s becoming increasingly common to hear our patients say that they are tired, having difficulty losing weight, and suffering from insomnia. They go to their allopathic doctors and are told they are just stressed, their thyroid is normal, and they might be depressed. They leave the office frustrated because they know something just isn’t right. Well, there is an often forgotten organ that might be struggling to keep up with our lifestyles – the adrenal glands.
Exhausted? Trouble sleeping? Trouble losing weight? The doctor says your thyroid is normal, but you still feel something isn’t quite right? These could be symptoms of adrenal fatigue. In our stressful day to day lives, we often come to rely on the little organs that sit atop our kidneys and make our stress hormone: cortisol.

The average age for women to go into menopause is 51 years old. According to studies, most women experience menopause between the ages of 40 to 58 years old. That is a span of 18 years during which a woman might not be in menopause but may be experiencing the perimenopausal state which leads up to being in menopause.

Are you ready for 2017? In the last blog of 2016, we looked at how having adrenal fatigue or adrenal burnout or adrenal exhaustion is not just about the adrenal glands.
