Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenals—two glands on top of the kidneys can no longer release enough cortisol to balance your body’s response to stress. A little bit of stress can be a good thing, but too much of it for too long can cause a variety of health problems that many doctors just aren’t trained to identify or treat.
In my office, I believe it’s time to look for the root cause of illness—not just provide a temporary treatment or prescription—and adrenal fatigue can be a common trigger of many health problems. While this quiz shouldn’t be used as a diagnostic tool, if you answer yes to even a few of them, it’s time to explore the cause. Don’t live another day feeling less than your best.
