Overcoming Adrenal Dysfunction

Fatigue is a common complaint for many people. But did you know that one of the most common causes of fatigue is adrenal dysfunction?

Your adrenal glands—which sit atop your kidneys—release cortisol, epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine in response to stress. They also release other hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), pregnenolone and progesterone as well as aldosterone, which works with the kidneys to balance sodium and potassium in the body.

Given its prominent role in so many hormone and neurotransmitter functions, it’s little wonder that adrenal dysfunction can wreak havoc with your health.
