STRESS AND THE ADRENAL GLANDS
Our ability to adapt to stress depends upon optimal function of the adrenal glands and in particular, the regulation of the main stress hormone: cortisol. Chronic stress can lead to elevated levels of cortisol, resulting in adrenal stress.
Early symptoms of adrenal stress include: fatigue, cold hands or feet, dizziness, low back pain, asthma, allergies, sweet cravings, hormonal imbalances, irritability, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, skin problems, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. Cortisol imbalances can also lead to blood sugar problems, weight gain, compromised immune function, infertility, chronic fatigue, bone loss, high triglyceride levels and heart disease.
