Have you ever heard of adrenal fatigue? It's a syndrome that can occur when the adrenal glands are overstimulated and do not work at a proper level. These small organs, located above your kidneys, are responsible for producing hormones that regulate your body's response to stress.
Adrenal fatigue is often associated with periods of intense, chronic stress and can also occur after an infection such as the flu, pneumonia, or bronchitis. Some people may not show any physical signs of being unwell, but feel taxed and wiped out, and even with more rest, the sleep doesn’t seem to make a dent in the exhaustion.
Other symptoms of adrenal fatigue can include fatigue, body aches, unexplained weight loss, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, loss of body hair, and skin discoloration. It's important to note that adrenal fatigue can also contribute to insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances, which may lead to weight loss resistance.
If you are struggling with weight loss and have been trying to address the issue through diet alone without success, it might be worth considering the impact of stress and mindset on your health. By addressing the root causes of stress and taking steps to improve your mindset, you may be able to support your body's natural healing process and achieve
better overall health.
