Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Do you have trouble waking up in the morning after you seemingly slept all night? Have you had a chronic respiratory infection that left you listless and exhausted? Do you feel like you need a cup of coffee before you can think straight?

You have come to the right place. I have been studying Adrenal Fatigue for many years and after working with hundreds of Clients have come to some of my own conclusions. I believe Adrenal Fatigue is behind all Auto-Immune Diseases and let me explain why.

Adrenal function plays an important role in moderating the inflammatory processes characteristic of autoimmune reactions. In autoimmune processes, the white blood cells of the immune system attack one or more parts of the body as if their tissue cells were intruders. This creates inflammation in those tissues, with effects that can range from mild to life-threatening autoimmune disease.

Your adrenal glands produce the hormone cortisol, which is the most powerful anti-inflammatory substance in your body. However, in autoimmune disease, cortisol levels are inadequate for the degree of reaction taking place in the tissues being attacked. This is one of the reasons why strong corticosteroids (prednisone, prednisolone, etc.) are used with all diseases involving inflammatory processes, including autoimmune diseases. These drugs imitate the anti-inflammatory effects of cortisol.
