Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal Fatigue can deplete you energy and is so common in our society with all of the stress and busy schedules that most of us are faced with.

There are many symptoms of adrenal fatigue including:

  • lack of focus and concentration
  • mood and memory problems
  • anxiety and/or depression
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • feeling rundown or overwhelmed
  • difficulty getting up in the morning
  • having more energy at night than the entire day
  • sugar cravings
  • hypoglycemia
  • low sex drive
  • infertility
  • reduced immune function
  • hypothyroid
  • allergies
  • dizziness when standing
  • low blood pressure
  • eyes sensitive to light
  • aches and pains

Most people go undiagnosed with this condition because it’s not routinely checked for and is not recognized in the medical field, unless it is full blown Addison’s disease.  There are different levels of adrenal fatigue though, from mild to severe.

Recently, a 22-year-old young woman came in to the Natural Medicine Clinic who was blacking out multiple times a day.  She was very tired all the time and had numerous other symptoms.  This had been going on for six years, and the many specialists she had gone to had not been able to figure out a cause or how to help her.

When I did the evaluation, her blood pressure was very low, became even lower upon standing, and she had many other signs of adrenal fatigue.

After thorough lab testing, I put her on a treatment program which included a special diet and supplements to help support adrenal health.  Within weeks, she stopped blacking out, all of her symptoms cleared up and she was thrilled to have her life back!

How do you know if you have adrenal fatigue?

There are some simple in office evaluation tests I do first that can determine the health of your adrenals.

One is a positional blood pressure test, as your blood pressure is supposed to rise when you stand up which indicates healthy adrenal function.

Then I check to see how your eyes react to light, as this can be a good measure of adrenal function as well.

If indicated, I order comprehensive lab testing, including the adrenal hormones DHEA-S and Cortisol, to confirm and come up with a specific treatment plan.

I have found that adrenal fatigue often goes along with thyroid conditions so it is best to evaluate and treat both at the same time for best results.

Along with diet, supplements and adrenal support formulas, here are a few things you can do at home to help.

1. Go to sleep at the same time every night, ideally by 10 PM; at the very latest 11 PM. And getting at least 7 hours of sleep would be very helpful.

2.  Set aside relaxation times daily, even if it’s to go out for a walk and enjoy nature.

3.  Reduce your sugar intake and eat protein meals regularly throughout the day to avoid hypoglycemia which can further stress the adrenals.

If you have any questions or would like your or a family member’s adrenals checked, email us at info@nmcwellness.com  or call us  at 561-627-5800.  We would be happy to help.

Yours for Optimal Health,

Dr. Tom Rofrano

    I was in a very sickly state with very high blood pressure, Epstein Barr Virus, severe digestive issues, IBS, and constant UTI ‘s that were always back to back. My cholesterol was 244 and my inflammation was off the... charts / extremely high!!!! I decided to read “free diet” book written by Dr Rofrano. It made total sense, so I decided to proceed with the blood tests. This is when I discovered all my lab work was in a very poor state. He uncovered a lot of information and made me aware of why my health was poor and why I was feeling badly!!! I started to follow the diet and take the suggested supplements. Within 5 to 6 weeks everything turned around for me. My labs were nearly perfect in all the previously scary areas where the numbers were completely out of range. I am feeling much better and I am raving about the free diet / supplements that Dr Rofrano can offer you for your specific issues. he is gifted to know exactly how to help each person deal with their health issues. I am grateful to God I found him and had the initiative to move forward!!!! PTL !!!!read more

    My health had been declining over the last 5 years. I have consulted with no less than 6 naturopaths. Non of which was able to help me regain my health. After more recent lab tests my Feritin level had skyrocketed at... which point now I was worried. Every one I spoke to said the only option was to do leeching (where they draw out your blood periodically). That did not sound like an option. Then I found Dr Rofrano. To be honest I was extremely skeptical as I have spend lots of money and time with other naturopaths only to end up right back at the beginning. However I had nothing to loose (other than $$$) I decided to give him one try before I competely gave up. I can say I am 100% happy!!!... After an in-depth consultation, and extensive testing. Many deficiencies were uncovered not to mention, sensitivities, thyroid, hormones, high cholesterol the list goes on and on. We began a supplement regiment to get things back on track. Its now 6 weeks later. My labs have significantly improved, my cholesterol is now in normal range, my feritin level has significantly dropped and I am feeling a lot better. Its still early and my body has more healing to do. I am ecstatic to say we are on the right track. My labs have never looked better. If you are just not feeling well and really need to find a solution would highly recommend you contact the Natural Medicine Clinic and speak to Dr Tom Rofrano.. you will NOT be dissapointed.read more

    Stay away. Extremely expensive for results. All they want to do is throw pills at you for thousands of dollars.. Not worth the money.Find someone who takes an interest in your health not your wallet.
