Trending now: Justin Bieber, lumberjack beards, gluten allergies and adrenal fatigue. Seems like all the cool kids got adrenal fatigue these days. What’s with the sudden rise in the condition? Is it all related? Is Justin Bieber and his reckless behavior wearing everyone out? (Doubtful.) Or are the lumberjack beards so tiresome it’s blowing everyone’s adrenals? (Probably.) Or is it the gluten? Actually yes gluten intolerance can have a negative impact on the endocrine system, as can a number of other factors like protein deficiencies, blood sugar handling issues, electrolyte deficiencies and digestive issues. Listen in as Tony, Will and Kinna bring to light common causes of chronic fatigue. You may be surprised to learn that, more often than not it’s not really the adrenals that are usually to blame for symptoms of chronic fatigue.
In this Episode You’ll Learn
- About the connections between digestion, nutrient absorption, electrolyte levels, blood sugar and adrenal fatigue.
- How poor nutrient absorption can contribute to electrolyte deficiencies, hypotension and chronic fatigue.
- That often the adrenal glands are blamed for symptoms of fatigue when other body systems, such as digestion, thyroid function and cellular energy production can actually be more fundamentally responsible for fatigue in many cases.
- Oftentimes direct work to boost adrenal function doesn’t really fix the fatigue. In many cases work to improve digestion, stabilize blood sugar, support thyroid function and facilitate cellular energy utilization bare more fruit than direct adrenal treatment.
