The adrenals are a pair of pea-sized glands located atop each kidney. The adrenal gland consists of two sections: the medulla (inner portion) and the cortex (outer portion). The adrenal glands release certain hormones that allow us to be able to deal with immediate and long term stress. These glands and the hormones they release allow us to be resilient to day to day stress.
Persistent, unrelenting stress will ultimately lead to adrenal “burn-out.” Adrenal “burn-out,” or “adrenal fatigue,” renders the person defenseless against the continuous chemical, emotional, and physical damage that occurs with chronic stress. Once adrenal exhaustion sets in, it’s not long before the body begins to break down.

Adrenal fatigue can cause fatigue, hypoglycemia, low body temperature, decreased metabolism, a compromised immune system, muscle aches, cravings for salty foods, GI disturbances including constipation and diarrhea, and dizziness on standing, and more.

The majority of patients seen for chronic illnesses, including FMS and CFS, are suffering from adrenal exhaustion. They have literally burned their stress-monitoring organ out. Between years of poor sleep, unrelenting fatigue, chronic pain, excessive stimulants, poor diet, and relying on a plethora of prescription medications, the adrenal glands, and the hormones they release, have been used up. Once adrenal exhaustion sets in, it’s not long before the body begins to breakdown. Getting “stressed out” and staying “stressed out” is the beginning of chronic illness for most, if not all of, the FMS and CFS patients. Adrenal cortical extracts help repair and restore normal adrenal function.
