“WHY AM I SO TIRED?”
One of the most common questions people ask me is: “Why am I so tired all the time?”
If you’ve ever had this same thought, I want to point out one area that is often overlooked, although there are many factors that can influence a person’s energy levels and their feeling “tired.”
I am talking about one of the most unaddressed areas: how stress affects the body, including the adrenals.
Fact: The effects of stress on the adrenals can affect up to an estimated 80 percent of people. That’s right. Four out of five people can struggle with this and aren’t even aware of it.
However, taking steps to support adrenal health can be simple and transformative. So, let’s talk about how your adrenals work and how to begin supporting them.
ARE YOUR ADRENALS STRESSED OUT?
We live in a stress-filled society, and while we can tell ourselves that stress is “just a part of life,” our bodies don’t lie. They feel the effects of stress. In fact, if you’ve heard it said that you can’t fool Mother Nature, it’s true because there are natural biochemical bodily responses to stress—and they can make you feel tired.
The body typically responds to stress in three primary stages: when the body is alarmed, when the body tries to fight off stress and, finally, when the body is exhausted and just doesn’t have the fight left in it to deal normally with stress.
Initially, the body’s biochemistry tends to react to stress in an orderly fashion. Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system, which is part of the autonomic nervous system, activates the secretion of hormones from endocrine glands and constricts both the blood vessels and the involuntary muscles of the body. When the endocrine glands are stimulated, then heart rate, glucose metabolism and oxygen consumption increase.
These responses can culminate into what’s known as the “fight-or-flight response.” The fight-or-flight response is a natural physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival.
YOUR AMAZING ADRENAL GLANDS
Your adrenal glands are two thumb-sized organs that sit above your kidneys. They’re part of the endocrine system and are involved in many essential life functions. For example, your adrenal glands help produce more than 50 critical hormones, such as:
- Cortisol (the stress hormone)
- Epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) hormones are released in direct response to the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the “fight-or-flight response” to stress or physical threats.
The adrenal cortex, the outer layer of the adrenal gland, is responsible for the production of corticosteroids (also called adrenal steroids), including the well-known stress hormone cortisol.
Under conditions of stress, high amounts of cortisol are released—and chronic stress eventually depletes the body’s resources and its ability to adapt.
That’s when stress can really take a toll.
Excess adrenaline can wreak havoc on the human adrenals, digestive system, skin, heart and circulatory system, and even outlook.
Excess cortisol can adversely affect health, too.
Obviously, today when we’re under stress, we don’t run or fight as our ancestors did before us, yet we have still have adrenaline (and cortisol) coursing through our blood system.
This can lead to a number of stress-related outcomes, including adrenal imbalances, which are often ignored, but the effects can greatly interfere with life and health.
The crazy thing is millions of people are experiencing hormone issues associated with their adrenals right now, but don’t realize it.
Directions : come off all stimulants for 30 days and take Green Dragon Adrenal Support instead of your stimulants. After the 30 days is over use less if your prior stimulants and you will feel way more of an effect !
