Why Adrenal Fatigue in Women Is So Prevalent

Women are asked to do and be so much. They juggle careers, family, and social obligations. They often feel like they need to be in three places at once.

By the time they hit the mattress, they’re drained. All this cumulative stress throws the delicate bodily systems off balance and leads to a stress-response dysfunction (aka Adrenal Fatigue). 

In my 20 years as a naturopathic doctor specializing in Adrenal Fatigue, I have found these 6 warning signs to be reliable indicators that addressing Adrenal Fatigue now is an urgent matter.

#1 Worsening Allergies and Recurring Illness

Immune system imbalance is a hallmark of an overworked stress response and Adrenal Fatigue. Adrenal Fatigue leaves you vulnerable to flu, viruses, cold sores, and reoccurrence of Epstein-Barr Virus flare-up.

Month after month, you’re trying to fight off a bug. More often than not, you’re losing the battle.

You may also find yourself dealing with new or increased food allergies and sensitivities. You develop issues with dairy, wheat/gluten, eggs, and more.

Sometimes you just have problems with digestion in general, and it can be hard to identify what’s triggering it. Immune dysfunction touches each aspect of daily living and ultimately compromises every cell in the body, causing a perpetual body-wide drain. There is no energy left to enjoy your life.
