San Francisco Adrenal Fatigue Program
Burn-out can significantly disrupt our lives in many ways. This burn-out recovery program will help you get back on your feet and feel yourself again.
Many people experience symptoms of “burn-out” or, as I like to call it, stressful lifestyles. “Burn-out” is a term used to describe a set of symptoms consisting of difficulty sleeping, fatigue, inability coping with normal stress, irritability, lack of concentration, low blood pressure and libido, and an increased susceptibility to illnesses such as the common cold and flu. If you are experiencing some of these symptoms, you may have over-worked adrenal glands.
Burn-out happens when the adrenal glands are fatigued due to long-term or acute physical and mental stress. When this occurs, the adrenal glands are unable to produce the necessary amounts of hormones needed for the body to cope with stress. Cortisol and DHEA are two of the primary hormones that decrease during adrenal fatigue. These decreases can lead to a lack of energy, low libido and and an increased severity of menopausal symptoms may occur. The adrenal glands take over the production of our sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone) at menopause, therefore, it is important to nourish the adrenal glands before menopause to promote the healthy production of hormones and prevent symptoms of menopause.
The best treatment for burn-out is to avoid stress and take a long holiday. Since stress is hard to completely avoid these days, there are other treatments options that can help. Exercise, a whole food diet, and nourishing adrenal supplements are key factors in the prevention and treatment of burn-out. My adrenal fatigue recovery program involves dietary and lifestyle recommendations, orthomolecular supplements/herbal supplements and bioidentical hormones if needed.
