Are you feeling exhausted because you are “burned out” all the time? You’re not alone, it’s estimated that up to 80% of adult Americans suffer from some level of adrenal fatigue. Dr. James Wilson has stated in his publications, there are now more than 40% of people who will develop adrenal insufficiency. Studies also estimate that 25% of people who have an adrenal crisis can potentially die from it. That is all because your adrenal glands are depleted due to stress and toxins, but very few people don't realize that they have developed an adrenal insufficiency until a later stage in life.
What is adrenal fatigue?
Adrenal fatigue is a condition where the adrenals do not produce enough cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that is responsible for regulating metabolism, sleep, blood sugar, inflammation, and managing stress. The theory is that too much stress wears out our adrenal functions. That is why learning how to manage your stress can be a very important tactic to learn. You can read our blog on Managing Your Stress Levels here. Anyone who is experiencing prolonged fatigue may be suffering from an adrenal deficiency.
What are the adrenal glands responsible for?
The adrenal glands produce several hormones. The most important are aldosterone, cortisol, androgens, and estrogen. Aldosterone helps the kidneys control the amount of salt in the blood and tissues of the body. Having low aldosterone can result in symptoms of brain fog or feeling dizzy when you stand up.
The adrenal hormones’ main functions are to help regulate your metabolism and your body's response to stress. If you do not have a healthy metabolism and are very stressed, it will result in depleting your adrenals.
Adrenal glands produce hormones in response to signals from the pituitary gland, which reacts to signals from the hypothalamus. This is referred to as the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis. The pituitary gland and hypothalamus are both located in the brain and are part of the central nervous system. Therefore, having a healthy brain function and a healthy nervous system will enhance the HPA system.
How can detoxification improve adrenal functions?
Many studies have shown that in order to boost adrenal functions and have healthy adrenal glands, detoxing the body is beneficial.
Major detoxification centers of the body are liver, kidney, skin, and intestines. The HPA axis is the main stress response system, the adrenal is directly affected by the hypothalamus and the pituitary therefore, strengthening and detoxing the nervous system is very important. Specifically, the hypothalamus–pituitary complex can be thought of as the “command center” of the endocrine system.
