Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
The adrenal glands play an important part in the regulation of your body’s energy, pain and inflammation. When chronic stress on the body and adrenal glands occurs, these glands may not perform as needed to regulate certain hormones and stress levels. The result could be adrenal fatigue, a chronic condition that can impact your wellness. At Wholistic Medicine Specialists of Atlanta, we offer adrenal fatigue treatment and testing to help our patients achieve optimum health.
What is Adrenal Fatigue?
The adrenal glands create many hormones that help the body deal with stress. Cortisol is one of the essential hormones released by the adrenal glands, which can control pain, inflammation and blood sugar. Certain stresses can trigger the release of cortisol and other hormones from the adrenal glands. Pain and inflammation in the body can trigger cortisol release. Emotional stress, low blood sugar and body cycles can also cause cortisol release. Over time, excessive stress, pain, inflammation and diet issues can cause adrenal fatigue from the overproduction of hormones, like cortisol. The result is chronic low energy, pain and inflammation when the adrenal glands no longer work correctly.
If you are looking for relief from the symptoms of adrenal fatigue, you can trust Dr. Bradley Bongiovanni and Dr. Shama Patel at Wholistic Medicine Specialists of Atlanta (WMSOA). At our Naturopathic medical practice, we believe that one-size-fits-all medicine is no longer acceptable, desirable or successful. Instead, we combine excellent patient care, innovative laboratory assessments and cutting-edge natural medicines to provide a unique service that is tailored to each patient and their individual biochemistry.
Adrenal Gland Support
Adrenal fatigue treatment can be different for each patient. It depends on what is causing the fatigue on the adrenal glands and how the patient’s body is responding. Adrenal gland testing can be performed to determine cortisol levels and adrenal function. A combination of different alternatives may be recommended. This can include nutritional or diet changes, herbal or nutrition supplementation, stress management and other modalities for adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal fatigue does not occur overnight. Most people with this condition have had ongoing issues with stress, pain, inflammation or energy loss for several months or even years. If you are suffering from chronic low energy or pain, come see our holistic medical team at Wholistic Medicine Specialists of Atlanta for adrenal fatigue testing and possible treatment at our clinic in Alpharetta, GA.
