Adrenal Fatigue & Anxiety Symptoms

Are You Frazzled?

Why do always write about the adrenals? Anyone who follows my posts on Twitter, Facebook, or on this blog knows I am always promoting adrenal health as anxiety therapy. The adrenals are in charge of the “Fight or Flight” response in the body. When we are experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, or restlessness – our body is on alert and the adrenals are blasting out adrenaline.

As the adrenals get fatigued from chronic emotional stress, a diet devoid of nutrients, lack of sleep, and improper digestion – they cannot make the neurotransmitters epinephrine and it’s counterpart norepinephrine. That’s when all sorts of “crazy” feelings set in. The other hormone the adrenals make is cortisol. Cortisol levels cycle throughout the day and when the adrenals are fatigued, the cycle gets disjunct. We can’t sleep well, pain levels raise in the body, blood sugars are erratic, and weight is gained around the belly.

So how do we fix this? First, listen to the adrenal audios on this blog found under the FREE DOWNLOADS tab. Diet & sleep have a huge component to recovering from adrenal fatigue. Next, find a doctor who can run the right tests to determine neurotransmitter levels. I get mine tested through NeuroScience. I contacted them and had them find a local doctor that ran their tests and used nutrients to balance brain chemistry and adrenal function. Based off my test results, they make nutrient recommendations. All of my neurotransmitters were messed up – serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, epinephrine, and GABA. That is why I felt like a loony tune!

You can contact NeuroScience as I did. They are happy to locate a doctor in your area that will fit your needs. I don’t encourage people to read books and just start taking amino acids and nutrients without testing done first. How do you know what to take if you have no idea what’s deficient or in excess?

To learn more about the role adrenal fatigue and neurotransmitter imbalances have with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and other mental stuff – read about them in my ebook Let’s Get Physical. My full recovery program is included too. Remember, it’s NOT all in your head!
