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.

Do I have adrenal fatigue?

Dallas, TX men and women who suffer from unexplained and undiagnosed exhaustion, emotional stress, or mental health issues may find some answers to their condition by assessing their adrenal function. While the diagnosis of adrenal fatigue can be a broad term, more specifically, it applies to individuals who have undergone prolonged periods of stress, whether consciously or unconsciously, leading to heightened levels of cortisol. You might suffer from adrenal fatigue if you have noticed unexplained weight loss, hypotension, large amounts of hair loss, or other symptoms. If you suspect that you might qualify for adrenal fatigue, The Wellness Institue of Dallas is prepared to diagnose and treat you, helping you restore adrenal function and your normal, healthy life.
