Common Symptoms and Causes of Adrenal Fatigue

December 1, 2015

adrenal fatigue Houston FXAdrenal fatigue can be a baffling and debilitating condition. Many people suffer from adrenal fatigue, and most suffer in silence. That is because this chronic condition is poorly understood even by many in the medical community. Adrenal fatigue often presents itself with vague and non-specific symptoms, and that makes diagnosis difficult and misdiagnosis more likely.


The fact that the symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue are often vague and non-specific also means that no two sufferers will experience the same set of bodily changes. For some the adrenal fatigue starts with vague feelings of illness, including flulike symptoms that do not respond to traditional antibiotics and antiviral treatments. For others the symptoms are much more severe, including fatigue that is so bad the sufferer literally cannot get out of bed or function normally.


Feeling Stressed Out?

Those who suffer from adrenal fatigue often find getting out of bed or waking up extremely difficult. Even though they have had a good night’s sleep, they still feel tired and fatigued. These feelings of fatigue are what give adrenal fatigue its name, but tiredness is not the only symptom associated with this increasingly common condition.


A sudden inability to handle stressful situations is another common symptom of adrenal fatigue. Men and women who suffer from adrenal fatigue often report that situations they were once able to handle are now overwhelming. Whether it is work-related stress or issues in their personal lives, adrenal fatigue sufferers often have a difficult time handling even low levels of stress.


Strangely enough, sufferers from adrenal fatigue often report food cravings, especially cravings for salty foods like nuts and potato chips. The medical community is still studying this link, but many feel it has something to do with changes in hormone levels.


A weakened immune system is another common symptom of adrenal fatigue, and sufferers may be more likely to come down with other illnesses. Adrenal fatigue sufferers may also suffer from respiratory issues, dizziness, low blood pressure, low blood sugar and sexual dysfunction. If you recognize any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical help as soon as possible.


Treating Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue is a chronic medical condition, and as such it is unlikely to improve on its own. While many in the medical community are still confused about the causes and symptoms of adrenal fatigue, help is available.


relief from adrenal fatigue Houston TXFor many sufferers, the best approach to treating adrenal fatigue is a natural one. Drugs and medications are often ineffective against adrenal fatigue and conditions like it. The hormonal changes and immune system disruptions at the heart of conditions like adrenal fatigue can make treating it with prescription medications problematic. By addressing the root of the problem and treating adrenal fatigue naturally, forward looking medical personnel are helping their clients cope and allowing them to recover their strength, overcome their constant tiredness and get on with their lives.


If you or someone you care about has been suffering from any of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue, it is important to let them know that help is available and Hotze Health & Wellness Center offers natural treatments to combat it. When adrenal fatigue first hit the press, many doctors dismissed it as a psychosomatic illness. Now that more and more people are reporting these troubling symptoms, the medical community is taking another look – and taking adrenal fatigue seriously. Taking a natural approach to reversing the troubling signs and symptoms offers the best chance at success – and the time to seek help is now.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
