Adrenal Fatigue Natural Remedies

See also Stress and Exhaustion Remedies, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety Remedies, and Cushings Disease, Addison's Disease.

When your adrenal glands are so fatigued, it causes low energy, tiredness, exhaustion, weakness, allergies, sleep problems, low sex drive, poor concentration, and the inability to cope with stress. Causes may come from nutritional deficiencies, adrenal or pituitary tumors, or prolonged stress.

Modern medicine often ignores the causes and uses steroids or stimulants with their attending side effects. Use the natural way to help adrenal fatigue through good nutrition and helpful supplements to rehabilitate the adrenals.

Diet: remove tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and fast foods. Also exercise moderately and sleep eight hours a day.

Some of the most important nutrients are to use a whole-food source such as using Stress Multi-Vitamins from New chapter for optimal nutrition, and Amla-C or New Chapter’s C-Food Complex.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body's ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results -- your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.
