Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue Treatment Specialists

Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome has become more common due to the fast-paced, high stress daily environments produced with modern lifestyles. This syndrome is usually brought on with stress, and it can cause men and women to wear down their adrenal glands. The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and are no bigger than the size of a walnut. Their sole function is to help the body deal with stress. They affect every tissue, organ, and cell, and they also influence thoughts and emotions. The adrenal glands secrete hormones in order to help the body maintain functions while dealing with stress.

Stress can come in many forms, and each day small stressors begins to wear on the adrenal glands. If the adrenal glands do not have time to recover, and a large traumatic event occurs, the adrenals may stop functioning at optimum levels. The adrenal glands respond to stress the same way, no matter what the cause of the stress may be. Physical, emotional, and mental stress can induce the adrenal glands. The number of stressors, how long they last, the frequency they occur, and the intensity affect the way the body deals with stress in the long run.

When my patients complain of exhaustion along with having high levels of stress in their life as an ongoing thing, I suspect adrenal burn out or adrenal fatigue. When adrenals are not working properly, one may experience fatigue, dizziness or difficulty focusing on the task in front of oneself, feeling tired when challenged with some monumental deadline or a presentation that needs to be prepared in speed break time, loss of motivation, Heart palpitations, difficulty getting good night rest, low blood pressure or feeling dizzy when getting up from sitting position, exercise intolerance or low body weight. One usually feels better in horizontal position than upright position of the body.

When a person feels stressed, the adrenal glands are forced to excrete cortisol, which is a steroidal hormone that protects the body from inflammation created with stress. Over time, the constant excretion of cortisol begins to fatigue the adrenal glands, and because the adrenals produce reserve stores of sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, it may cause the body to steal the materials needed to make these sex hormones and convert them into more cortisol. The body chooses to do this because the body can continue to live with hormone deficiencies, but it could literally die from the internal inflammation produced from stress. This process exhausts the adrenals, and it can produce or exacerbate sex hormone deficiencies.

Risk Factors For Developing Adrenal Fatigue

Anyone with a high stress lifestyle can acquire adrenal fatigue syndrome; however, people going through middle-aged changes are more at risk for developing adrenal fatigue syndrome because their sex hormones are already beginning to decline. Another group of individuals at risk for developing adrenal fatigue are those that stay up all night long for recreational purposes or that must stay up all night working. The body is programmed to get drowsy when it gets dark, but when a person stays up or must ignore the natural chemical drowsiness, the adrenal glands are forced excrete adrenaline to keep the body awake. If this happens once in awhile, the adrenals have time to recover from this, but if it occurs on a regular basis, the body cannot recover, which fatigues the adrenal glands.

Other stressors that induce adrenal fatigue may include:

  • Food Toxins
  • Poor Dietary Habits
  • Caffeine
  • No Relaxation
  • Mental Stress
  • Financial Issues
  • Infections Or Illnesses
  • Negative Thoughts And Emotions
  • Allergies
  • Smoking
  • Lack Of Sleep
  • No Exercise
  • Overexerting Exercise
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Fear
  • Environmental Toxins
  • Excessive Sugar
  • Flour Products

Signs of adrenal fatigue may include:

  • Craving Salty or Sweet Snacks
  • Difficulty Getting Up In The Morning
  • Feeling Burned Out
  • Not Being Able To Feel Awake
  • Intolerance To Stress
  • Mental and Physical Exhaust
  • Feeling More Awake After 6pm
  • Inability To Sleep
  • Mental Fogginess
  • Poor Concentration or Memory

How do we diagnose Adrenal Fatigue?

Of course diagnostic tests for adrenal fatigue have to be done to diagnosis this condition. These include a 24 hr urine test for cortisol and other adrenal hormones as well as a saliva test to determine the rhythm of cortisol secretion during a 24 hr period. If your test results prove your adrenals are not functioning properly, adding more salt to your diet will allow your adrenals to rest so that they can repair themselves.

What can i do about it?

I love treating my patients who have adrenal fatigue because I know I can heal their adrenal glands in a few short months into normal productive glands with my healing herbs while supporting adrenals with low dose cortisol and DHEA. Once the adrenals are repaired, one does not need to continue these herbs or hormones, provided one has changed their lifestyle and handled all the factors contributing to their existing condition.

One thing I notice that my patients who are undergoing hormone replacement therapy who have adrenal fatigue do very well with wellness IV drips. When you’re under stress, your body uses greater quantities of B-complex vitamins. Riboflavin (or vitamin B2) is a key member of this group of vitamins–and yellow is the natural color of riboflavin. Adding B-complex vitamins to your IV bag with Vitamin C will help your body handle the stress you’re going through. In fact, the entire group of B-complex vitamins and vitamin C are so well known as stress fighters that even conventional medical practitioners acknowledge their value.

Dear Patients and Friends,

Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur

Ingredients:

  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.

Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
