WHAT IS ADRENAL FATIGUE?
Being under intense physical, mental, or emotional stress can wreak havoc on your body and overall health. When we're under stress, our adrenal glands respond by producing hormones, like cortisol. However, prolonged stress may cause the adrenal glands to underproduce certain hormones, leading to a condition called adrenal fatigue. At The Wellness Institute of Dallas, our team of chiropractors works on an individual basis with patients to offer the most accurate diagnosis of your condition. The primary goal of our Dallas, TX team is to help you achieve your best mental and physical health so your mind and body can work as one to keep you healthy for many years to come.
