Learn how to heal the adrenals, balance hormones and lose weight naturally

By Landsman:(NaturalNews) Sitting on top of each kidney, the adrenals are responsible for producing four main hormones - catecholamines, aldosterone, cortisol and androgens - which help to deal with everything from stressful situations, digestion, gender traits to blood pressure regulation. Gaining weight usually involves overactive adrenals but, this can be avoided, even reversed, without the need for surgery or extreme diets.

According to experts, as much as 60 to 80 percent of the population suffers from some level of adrenal fatigue, a condition with symptoms such as fatigue, irritability, difficultly dealing with stress, and trouble feeling energized even after a full night's rest.

What Is Adrenal Fatigue and What Can You Do About It?

Healthy adrenal glands…something we rarely think about, but our fast-paced lifestyles push these little organs to the limit. Overtaxed by stress, stimulants, sugar and a variety of habits, our body's energy control centers are easily maxed-out, resulting in fatigue, depression and even weight gain. In a holistic health, wellness and fitness program, awareness one's lifestyle and its effect on these important hormone regulators is worthy of attention.


Fighting Burn-out: Natural Help For Stress, Fatigue and Adrenal Insufficiency

By Dr. Rita Louise

The adrenal or “stress glands” are small, triangular shaped glands located on the top of the kidneys. Their function is to prepare the body’s resources to run or fight through the releasing of specific hormones. When this primitive, instinctive response is activated, blood is diverted from digestive system while our blood pressure, pulse, blood sugar levels increase. At the same time, our pupils dilate and the speed of reflexes increases. All of this happens as a way to ensure our survival.


Help For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

In the past, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome was referred to as the “yuppie flue” because when it was first identified, most of its victims were well educated professionals in their 20’s – 40’s. Today, doctors still argue as to whether the disorder even exists, but those who suffer from it know it does.



The adrenal is the small hormone producing gland that sits on top of each kidney. The autopsy of President John F. Kennedy was remarkable for a number of its findings, and missing items, but one thing was clear, the pathologists could not find his adrenal glands! That was because the President suffered from Addison’s disease, and required external steroid medication to stay alive. The exogenous steroids also had the effect of turning off pituitary stimulation of the adrenal, thus leading to what we call “atrophy” or shrinkage of the gland.


Adrenal & Stress

In modern times our fast-paced lives are bombarded with stresses never before experienced in history.  Our diets are generally as far from nature as they can possibly be, often consisting primarily of over-processed foods.  On top of that the true VALUE of food suffers terribly, just ask a farmer.  He'll tell you that he has to use more fertilizer, pesticides, chemicals, antibiotics, and synthetic hormones than ever before because his crops and animals aren't strong enough to grow and resist insects and disease on their own.&nbs



The adrenals are our stress system. When we are under a great deal of stress, we will usually blow out our B-complex vitamins which in turn will eventually blow out our adrenal systems, as it is this system that takes over when we are too tired to function, and yet we continue to push ourselves. When your B-vitamins and adrenals have been blown out, symptoms will begin to appear. At first you will begin to feel more tired than usual, eventually looking for a nap in the afternoon.
