  • Fatigue: Usually tired throughout the day and feeling the need to take naps after lunch.
  • Sleeping Problems: Either trouble falling asleep, or the more common symptom, waking up in the middle of the night, around 2am or 3am, and have trouble falling back to sleep.
  • Inability To Tolerate Stress: Your emotional fuse has become shortened.  You find yourself yelling more than you used to and things tend to bother you more than they used to.
  • Pain and/or Inflammation: Something in your body hurts; your stomach, knee, back, neck, hands…… It might be every day or it might only be once a month.
  • Anxiety and/or Depression: Most people are not aware that the adrenal glands actually make neurotransmitter responsible for mood and emotion.
  • Cravings for Salty or Sugary Foods: Chips, pretzels, ice cream, cheese and other goodies can be craved.
  • Brain Fog: Have trouble thinking or putting words together.  Asking yourself questions like, “Why did I come into this room?”  “What was her name? “

  • Belly Fat: Not all adrenal fatigue cases are overweight, but when they are, it is typically the midsection where the fat is stored.
  • Facial Hair: Some women with adrenal fatigue will start to notice a darkening of the mustache and possibly some additional facial hair on or under the chin, cheeks and neck.
  • Puffiness of the Eyes or Face: Puffiness can be seen around the eyes but also the face can appear full or rounder than it used to be.  Medically this is known as a “moon face.”
  • The Adrenal Fatigue Body: Eventually the adrenal fatigue case can develop a body that has the picture’s appearance.


There are a tremendous amount of things that can cause adrenal fatigue.  I’ve covered 4 of the main ones below.

Gut Infection

Parasites, yeasts, fungi, bacteria, molds and other bad guys produce inflammation in the intestines, which may or may not cause intestinal symptoms.  The adrenal glands are the main anti-inflammatory glands of the body.

The adrenal glands have to work very hard to try and reduce this intestinal inflammation, kind of like firemen having to put out a big fire. Well, imagine if the fire never went away. The firemen would become exhausted and so do the adrenal glands. The infection must be found and handled. A a holistic stool study can help to identify pathogens present in the intestinal tract and stomach.

Environmental Toxicity

Certain environmental chemicals increase inflammation in the body. As stated above, inflammation damages the adrenal glands. There are several Holistic Labs done via urine and hair that help to identify some of these harmful toxins.

Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities produce inflammation in the body. Are you seeing a trend here? Once again, it is the inflammation, inflammation, inflammation, that causes the adrenal glands to work overtime and eventually burnout and become fatigued.

There are many different type of food sensitivity studies available. Based on the uniqueness of the person’s case they should be matched up with the correct food study.

Emotional Stress

The adrenal glands are usually strong enough to tolerate the day to day stresses of life. However, when they have become exhausted due to fighting inflammation, then even the slightest emotional stress will cause these glands to go into full meltdown mode.

Prayer, yoga, meditation, deep breathing and other stress reduction techniques can be very beneficial at reducing overall adrenal stress. Ultimately, you need to get to the root cause of why these glands have broken down in the first place.

Identifying the Root Cause is Key

Natural Suggestions

Test Don’t Guess: You have to find the thing that is wrong inside your body that is stressing the adrenal glands.  There is something wrong causing excessive inflammation in the body that must be found.  You must then run the correct lab or holistic tests to identify what it stressing the adrenal glands.

Adrenal Fatigue Diet: The right diet to promote weight loss and the health of the adrenals is of course crucial.  In the below video we cover just that.

Adrenal Fatigue Exercise: The best type of exercise for the people with Adrenal Fatigue is low intensity exercise.  Exercise is a stress on the body.  The adrenal glands are also the stress glands of your body. If you stress the adrenals more with exercise that is too intense the you will cause them to break down even more. In addition, you may even gain more weight.

Don’t Do: sprinting, spin classes, high intensity aerobics, weight lifting, martial arts and similar type of activities.

Do: Walking, yoga, Pilates, stretching, light resistance training and swimming. Start off with exercising between 15 and 30 minutes every other day. If your glands are extremely fatigued, then consider starting with just 15 minutes. Eventually, as the glands get stronger, you’ll be able to incorporate more intense exercise.
