Feeling Tired, Wired, Or Exhausted?
Adrenal fatigue is affecting more people than ever. If you find yourself worn out and struggling to meet the demands of everyday life, you’re in the right place.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
Your adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys and are responsible for producing hormones like cortisol. This hormone helps regulate your metabolism, immune system, and blood pressure and is your body’s response to stress. In other words, it fuels the “fight or flight” that puts your body into survival mode.
Although cortisol is necessary for optimal health under healthy conditions, if there is ongoing physiological or emotional stress they get worn out. Our ancestors did not face the ongoing chronic daily stress we do today. They had short-term stress, like being chased by a tiger and needing to escape. Once safe, they could relax in their hut and their stress levels returned to normal.
Today’s modern world has many of us in a state of chronic stress. This floods the body with cortisol, which pushes your adrenal glands beyond what they were meant to handle.
What Causes Adrenal Fatigue?
Many things can affect your adrenal gland health. In the case of adrenal fatigue, triggers can come in the form of:
- Emotional, mental, physical, and psychosocial stress
- Illness, hormone problems, or chronic infections like viruses and yeast
- Environmental toxins such as heavy metals, pesticides, GMOs, or processed foods
We take the time to explore your medical history, your current lifestyle habits, and other contributing factors that may play a role in your experience with this condition.
What Are The Symptoms Of Adrenal Fatigue?
When there’s too little production of cortisol, adrenaline, noradrenaline, or DHEA, it can lead to an imbalance of stress hormones.
These imbalances can have profound impacts on your body’s system, causing numerous problems.
Symptoms can include:
- Feeling exhausted
- Less resilient to stress
- Weight gain in the midsection
- Thyroid problems (hypothyroidism/hyperthyroidism)
- Body aches/muscle pain
- Low libido
- Craving sugary or salty foods
- Allergies seasonal
Conventional Treatments for Adrenal Fatigue
Right now, conventional medicine doesn’t recognize adrenal fatigue as a condition. If you are not feeling well or exhausted, wired or tired, and basic physical labs are said to be normal conventionally, you may be offered:
- Stimulant Drugs ( Adderall, Provigil, etc)
- Be told it can all just ‘be in your head’
The problem with these is that they do not identify or treat the root causes of your symptoms, and have very serious negative side effects and health consequences.

Your adrenal glands secrete hormones including cortisol, DHEA, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. The best way to test is to use saliva samples to see where your cortisol levels are at four peak times during the day.
We also use advanced, comprehensive blood tests to look at all your hormone, thyroid levels, and cardiometabolic, autoimmune, inflammatory, and infectious markers. These can be extremely helpful in finding underlying links or the root cause of adrenal fatigue.
Dr. Rashel uses the best research-based treatments available through integrative medicine to balance hormones, restore equilibrium in the body, and reverse adrenal fatigue naturally.
