Adrenal & Focus Blend
Burnout, fatigue, low physical and/or mental energy, brain fog, difficulty with mental focus, blue moods... Sound familiar? Each of these can be a sign that you are experiencing adrenal exhaustion, often the result of exposure to long-term stress, which can seriously affect many aspects of health.
What is Adrenal Exhaustion?
For many of us, our adrenal glands have been working overtime for so long that they have become exhausted. Adrenal exhaustion can lead to mild physical, mental and emotional fatigue, raw nerves, and difficulty with mental focusing. Adrenal exhaustion is now so common in today’s high stress world that most adults and many teenagers experience from it at one time or another in their lives.
What Are the Adrenal Glands?
The adrenal glands, an important part of the endocrine system that runs how our bodies function, are located on top of the kidneys and are at the center of our stress response. They release the hormones adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol into the bloodstream in response to stress or pressure of any form. This stems from the body’s ancient survival-based ‘fight or flight’ response to whatever stresses it, good or bad.
Effects of Stress
Stress can be physical, psychological or mental. When stress occurs, triggering our ‘fight or flight’ responses, it affects our overall endocrine system, which stimulates our cardiovascular and nervous systems and suppresses our immune and digestive systems. While in today’s world we generally aren’t running away from lions and tigers, and bears, the stress that we put on ourselves in school, jobs, parenting, athletics, etc, create the same hormonal responses that survival stressors do.
Ongoing, long term stress of any kind effects the body’s ability to recuperate from high levels of stress, and causes the adrenals to work excessively hard, taking a toll on their ability to function at their best. This throws our HPA Axis off its delicate balance.
The HPA Axis, the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis, is a system of glands that work together and govern a great deal of our body functions. Stress to the mind and body, and therefore the HPA Axis, can affect food metabolism, which can lead to excess fat storage, as well as cause issues with your energy levels and throw off your sleep cycles. The adrenal glands and HPA Axis also directly affect blood pressure and heart health, our nerves, and our ability to focus. Endocrine system stress is often a contributing factor in teen and adult difficulties with focusing and mental function.
What Can I Do About Adrenal Exhaustion?
Getting plenty of sleep, eating nutritious foods, exercising regularly, and relaxation routines are very important to adrenal function, mental function, and nervous system support, and to supporting your HPA Axis. Reducing stressors in your life, and the effects of them on you, is very important to rebuilding your energy and vitality levels.
In addition, supplementing your diet with adaptogenic herbs that help the body adapt to stress and nervine herbs that soothe the nerves will help support the adrenal glands and the overall endocrine system so we can do the things we need to do in our busy lives, and feel good while doing them.
