If you’ve been suffering from the debilitating effects of Adrenal Fatigue for 6 months or more, you know by now that the symptoms aren’t just passing through. They’re stubborn and seem here to stay.
Your symptoms may include all or a combination of the following, and they most likely have been with you for months…or years.
— Fatigue or exhaustion
— Decreased stress tolerance
— Transient body-wide pain
— Insomnia and frequent waking
— IBS or other digestive illnesses
— Brain fog and poor concentration
— Unexplained weight gain
— Reproductive hormone disorders
And if those weren’t enough, the longer the symptoms go unchecked by your doctor, the more likely you’re also struggling with a weakened immune system, digestive issues, reproductive irregularities, thyroid symptoms and more.
You Feel Awful. Why Isn’t Anyone Able to Help You?
By the time my patients reach me, they have seen so many doctors and specialists and had countless labs performed that they’re frustrated, over-medicated, and sometimes even resigned to feeling the way they do for the rest of their lives. But deep-down, they knew there must be true and lasting relief for how they felt, and so, kept searching.
Chronic stress has a detrimental affect on your immune, digestive, and reproductive systems. Addressing the root cause of disease is the only way to heal these symptoms…once and for all.
The conventional medical industry is not designed to address complex conditions like Adrenal Fatigue, which has no magic pill for healing. Healthcare professionals offer band-aids, by way of chemical prescriptions and treating symptomatically rather than healing the root cause of disease.
I Know What You’re Going Through Right Now…
I know how hard healing can be. I suffered from my own battle with Adrenal Fatigue for years. I missed social events and holidays. I was unable to be there fully for my family. My studies suffered. I experienced a decade of chronic fatigue, immune weakness, and digestive issues before I finally found answers. I genuinely do have an intimate understanding of what you endure, both emotionally and physically.
I understand that perhaps your spouse or partner is tired of hearing you talk about how bad you feel, or maybe your friends and employer think you’re “faking it,” lazy, or that you just need exercise or to stop being so sensitive. I went through that too.
I suffered from my own battle with Adrenal Fatigue for years.
My desire to know the answers took me all the way to medical school. Because of it, I became a licensed Naturopathic Doctor, treating Adrenal Fatigue and related chronic illness. It’s what I do, all day, every day.
Thousands of patient interactions and 20 years of practicing medicine have helped me develop the only approach that fully heals Adrenal Fatigue for good. No one else treats this condition the way I do, and that is why my patients not only get well but stay well.
I am aware that’s a bold statement (and that you’re probably skeptical), but please keep reading to find out why I stand by it.
The Reason You’re Not Getting Better
Adrenal Fatigue. Stress Response System Dysfunction (SRD). HPA Axis Dysfunction (HAD). Burnout. Chronic Illness. Adrenal Syndrome.
There are dozens of names and terms used for what you’re experiencing. The only thing in greater abundance are the doctors, institutions, and websites telling you what you’re going through doesn’t exist.
Every day, I must reassure my patients by reminding them: “It’s not all in your head.”
This real but “invisible” condition can have a catastrophic impact on your quality of life, and having a professional dismiss your symptoms as purely psychological is narrow-minded and condescending.
Every day, I reassure my patients: “It’s not all in your head.”
I’m not here to tell you that there’s some “new” disorder taking over your life.
It is not a diagnosis or disease. It is a dysfunction of the entire stress response system that has a very similar “symptom picture” held by each person affected by it. This condition has been around for a long, long time. The problem is simply that no one out there treats it correctly and comprehensively.
No matter what name we give to this cluster of painful and life-changing and sometimes debilitating symptoms, complete and lasting treatment boils down to this:
There can be no healing of Adrenal Fatigue and its stress-related illnesses without treatment specific to all three parts of the stress response system: the brain, hormones, and nerves.
I do this using my Trilateral Approach to Healing. No one else treats all three parts of your stress response system simultaneously, and that’s why no one else can provide a solution for lasting healing.
These Three Parts of Your Stress Response System Hold the Key to Your Health
Healing Adrenal Fatigue illness needs to take place within the entire stress response system itself, not just the sluggish adrenal glands.
It starts with repairing the damage that’s taken place at the brain level, in the limbic system first and foremost; however, it also must include repair of the damage to both the nerve and hormone sides of your stress response.
The Limbic System is a non-thinking part of the brain in charge of controlling basic regulatory functions, such as sleep-wake cycles, temperature regulation, and appetite and hunger signals.
My Trilateral Approach heals all three parts of your stress response system.
But the most important job of the limbic system is to assess your environment for danger
. Once that decision is made, it triggers both the nerve and hormone sides of the stress response, resulting in the adrenal glands pumping out the stress hormones that will save your life.
The hormone side of the stress response is referred to as the HPA Axis (Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis). This axis ends with the triggering of the adrenals to release cortisol.
The nerve side of the stress response refers to the Autonomic Nervous System (or ANS). These are the nerves that control your organs. They also send signals to your adrenal glands to produce adrenaline.
Each system affects the other. They work together intimately. Unless all three are targeted in a healing plan, any improvements you may see will be only temporary.
The more often this system is triggered, the more trigger-happy it becomes, and the system starts over-interpreting its environment as dangerous. This is when we get stuck in a constant stress response, which leads to all of the debilitating damage and then symptoms associated with Adrenal Fatigue.
The Body-Wide Damage of Chronic Stress
The longer chronic stress continues unchecked, the more each of the body’s global operations can be thrown into chaos. Chronic overstimulation of the limbic system—and as a result, the rest of the stress response—has detrimental effects on the body.
This process leads to a condition some refer to as “Adrenal Fatigue.” If someone has Adrenal Fatigue, these dysfunctions are already occurring:
— Low energy levels
— Body-wide aches and pains
— Unwanted weight gain
— Irregular sleep patterns
— Suppressed immune function
— Intensified mood swings and irritability
— GI dysfunction
— Beginning thyroid disorders
My Trilateral Treatment Program
To heal completely—and for good—we must focus on the function of all three parts of the stress response system, and we must do it at the same time.
Treatment is different for everyone, because everyone is unique genetically and biochemically and is experiencing slightly different symptoms.
When we work one-on-one, my exact recommendations are always tailored to you. We must target the stress response system from all angles.
You may sometimes feel alone when you have this condition, but you don’t have to heal alone. My patients work with me from the comfort of home and have the support of my entire care team.
— Lab tests are shipped to your door
— Your one-on-one appointments with me are by video

Most important of all, once you are under my care, my only goal is to get you better so you can enjoy your life again. Whether it’s within three months or twelve months, my care team and I are beside you every step of your healing journey.
Anyone with Adrenal Fatigue is Fully Capable of Healing
As we work together on your treatment, your limbic system begins to calm and repair. It will no longer constantly trigger your adrenals. As a result, you’ll begin to feel a lift in energy levels. Your brain becomes focused again, and your mood stabilizes.
You’ll experience less pain, less inflammation, better sleep, improved digestion, and more. You won’t catch every infection that comes around. You won’t feel downright exhausted every waking moment.
Best of all, while your body heals, all the hopelessness and frustration you’ve been feeling for months—or years—dissipate.
I invite you to check out my treatment plans and start healing today. We offer different levels of support, and we can help you figure out the right plan for you.
