  • adrenal exhaustion

    Adrenal exhaustion is the term used to describe the state when adrenal glands are exhausted and unable to produce adequate quantities of hormones, primarily the glucocorticoid cortisol, and adrenalin produced in the adrenal medulla. From a naturopathic perspective, all hormones are not made from thin air. Everything in the body requires nutritional precursors in the form of vitamins and minerals. Unlike doctors, naturopaths believe in insufficiency of nutritional precursors to these hormones due to poor diet, stress, chronic disease etc. This leads to the inability of the body to produce stress hormones resulting in adrenal exhaustion and symptoms thereof. Herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle approaches can treat this condition naturally, without the use of pharmacological drugs.
