What is adrenal fatigue?


Adrenal fatigue includes many symptoms and signs which are called adrenal fatigue syndrome. In case of adrenal fatigue, functions of adrenal gland go below the required level. Adrenal fatigue results from prolonged stress, chronic and acute infections, respiratory infections, influenza, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Adrenal fatigue is a form of fatigue, which is not recovered by sleep.

No physical symptoms and signs are appeared in case of adrenal fatigue. A person suffering from adrenal fatigue normally feels tired and exhausted. Such people uses colas, stimulants and coffee that keep them active whole day long. In past many different names had been assigned to this syndrome like;

  • Non-Addison’s hypoadrenia
  • Sub-clinical hyoadrenia
  • Neurasthenia
  • Adrenal neurasthenia
  • Adrenal apathy
  • Adrenal fatigue

Conventional medicine fails to identify it as a syndrome. Due to lack of adrenal gland’s activity, one fails to do routine work and even cannot go out of the bed. Each system and organ is badly affected with reduction in functioning of adrenal glands.
