Do you know the symptoms of adrenal fatigue?
Do your patients report any of the following:
- Tired for no reason?
- Trouble getting up in the morning?
- Need coffee or colas to keep going?
- Feel run down and stressed?
- Crave salty or sweet snacks?
- Struggling to keep up with life’s daily demands?
- Can’t bounce back from stress or illness?
- Not having fun anymore?
- Decreased sex drive?
If they answer “yes” to at least one of these questions, then they may be suffering from adrenal fatigue (reprinted with permission from http://www.adrenalfatigue.org/).
And what is adrenal fatigue?
It is a syndrome that occurs when the adrenal gland functions at a sub-normal level, mainly due to the effects of chronic stress.
