The amazing adrenal glands and the huge publicity they have been gaining lately is due in part to the awareness of our body. Adrenal fatigue is an issue that goes on for an extended period of time without us knowing about; it becomes “normal.” Your adrenal glands are responsible for your fight or flight response. Lately, in the Montana news have been a lot of reports of bear encounters. Imagine if you are a hunter or hiker and you encounter that big Grizzly, you are either going to fight or “flight” (or play dead). Now, with regards to your body and adrenal fatigue, imagine if your body is constantly fighting chronic illness. Chronic illness is associated with adrenal fatigue due to the amount of stress that plagues your body. Chronic illness is any sign and symptom that keeps reappearing over and over again. You have to realize that it is not normal to have any sign or symptom.
Adrenal fatigue happens as your body constantly fights to survive. If you have a sign or symptom, it’s not like you are just going to wither off and die! Your body is going to enter that fighting mode and protect you by eliciting signs and symptoms. Having signs and symptoms for an extended period of time brings about adrenal fatigue. To help decrease the adrenal fatigue you have to first look toward the spine. This is due to the fact that any sign or symptom is directly related to dysfunction within your nerve system. Specific chiropractic adjustment’s restore proper function to your entire body by allowing your nerve system to function at it’s optimal potential. This in turn will eliminate your signs and symptoms and decrease your adrenal fatigue.
Understand that your body is hard-wired to function together. If a sign and symptom is present then something is not working correctly. Instead of focusing specifically and solely on what’s wrong, you need to look at the body as a unit. Why else would you have an ailment and have to suffer through adrenal fatigue? Because your body is stressed! Decrease your adrenal fatigue by having your nerves checked! Overcome your signs and symptoms by allowing your body to function as a unit correctly!
