Are you having a hard time sleeping? Are you experiencing sudden weight gain? Do you feel like you are always out of energy that you can’t seem to manage putting one foot after the other? You consulted many doctors and went through numerous therapies but you’re still not seeing any improvements to your well-being. While the above symptoms are similar to menopause there’s a need to dig deep and check whether you’re also experiencing adrenal fatigue due to continued chronic stress.
In this week’s podcast episode, Dr. Sharzad Green joins me again to talk about adrenal fatigue. While we have talked about this in passing with my other podcasts with her, I find it important to address it in more detail today. We talk about what adrenal fatigue is and how stress contributes largely to it. We also discuss the difference between adrenal fatigue and adrenal insufficiency. We also tackle the importance of a lifestyle change and the steps to take in order to treat adrenal fatigue symptoms effectively.
There’s a wealth of information you can get from listening to this episode, so tune in now.
