Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS)
Do you feel tired, anxious, depressed, fearful, have difficulty concentrating or remembering, insomnia, and worn-out just too often? Most traditional physicians do not consider adrenal fatigue to be a serious condition or maybe are not informed or educated. Alternative physicians are aware of how common it has become in today’s times of extreme stress. The non specific, broad spectrum symptoms of this syndrome are usually slow in onset and sometimes debilitating. We all know how serious stress is and have heard that “stress kills” but do we know how?
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS) sufferer’s usually have normal adrenal structure with associated low Cortisol levels, stress immune system issues, or metabolic nutritional problems. Addison’s disease is an endocrine recognized disease that has functional issues of the adrenals it may be caused by an autoimmune component and results in a hypoadrenic condition (low cortisol output). So, AFS is the non Addison’s sub clinical form of Adrenal dysfunction.
