The Adrenal glands reside atop the kidneys in your body. The glands are a small piece of tissue with vital functions and a large burden. They secrete the hormones Adrenalin and Cortisol, as well as Androgens; all are vital parts of our survival. You can live forever without your reproductive organs, but without your adrenal glands you would quickly die within days. Because of this, the adrenal hormones are considered a top priority by the body, and your body will wisely sacrifice the functionality of your reproductive organs and digestive tract in the attempt to repair your adrenal glands.
Adrenal fatigue can also be a genetic weakness with your mitochondria (your energy source). In our office we offer genetic testing and nutrition based on your genes. We can find out if the culprit of your fatigue runs as deep as your genes. Listen here for more info about genetic defects and fatigue:
