Do you have any of the following?
Fatigue and weakness, especially in the morning or afternoon
Sweating for no reason
Craving for foods high in salt, sugar or fat
Increased PMS or menopausal symptoms
Trouble waking in the morning – despite a good sleep
What causes the adrenal glands to work less effectively?
Chronic inflammation, pain, allergies, infection
Light- cycle disruption (caused by working the night shift or going to bed late)
Poor food choices and nutritional deficiencies
Constant emotional stress – fear, anger, anxiety, guilt depression etc
Why should I have a consultation for this? Can’t I just take a supplement?
Taking a supplement will help, however there may be other factors involved which need to be addressed to help reduce your symptoms and start to rebuild your adrenal glands. Our body is complex and unique. A naturopath is trained to get to the cause of health issues and resolve them together with you. This usually includes addressing lifestyle, diet and exercise regime as well as supplementation.
