There’s nothing worse than going through the day running on empty. Living with fatigue is even worse when you don’t know what’s causing it. Your chronic grogginess and other unexplainable health problems might be caused by a deficiency in your adrenal glands. Fortunately, our naturopathic doctor is an expert when it comes to diagnosing and treating your adrenal fatigue.

Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis with Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center specializes in identifying the source of your adrenal fatigue and treating your symptoms naturally and holistically.

What is adrenal fatigue?

At some point in your life, you’ll feel run-down and low on energy. When your fatigue goes beyond the day-to-day drowsiness is when you need to be concerned that there’s an underlying reason for your fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is much different from normal fatigue because it occurs when your adrenal glands aren’t functioning properly.

You have lots of different glands all over your body that are responsible for regulating your systems and ability to function. The adrenal glands sit just above your kidney. They release the hormones cortisol and adrenaline when your body senses you’re in a stressful situation.

If your body remains in a constant state of stress as a result of a prolonged illness or infection like bronchitis, death of a loved one, or any other difficult circumstance, your adrenal glands overproduce hormones and become burned out. This leaves you feeling perpetually tired along with a whole host of health issues.

You might also experience adrenal fatigue if you don’t get enough sleep or eat a proper diet, or if you overuse stimulants like caffeine. Whatever is causing your adrenal fatigue, the first step is identifying its warning signs and symptoms.

Signs you might have adrenal fatigue

Adrenal fatigue looks and feels different to each person who experiences it. It’s typically described as feeling consistently “gray” and groggy. Besides fatigue that doesn’t improve with sleep, other indicators of this condition include:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Body aches
  • Low blood pressure
  • Tension headaches
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Experiencing anxiety or heart palpitations
  • Becoming constantly sick or having low immunity
  • Noticing skin discoloration

Others have reported a craving of salty foods, intolerance to hot and cold, sensitivity to light and noise, and difficulty falling asleep and starting the day.

How can I find relief from adrenal fatigue?

Whether your adrenal fatigue is a new development or something you’ve been dealing with for years, it’s important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible. Letting these symptoms go on unchecked and untreated can result in irreparable damage to your health.

Dr. Karampahtsis starts with a full review of your medical history and a complete lab workup. He uses this information to uncover the true cause of your adrenal fatigue and learn best how to treat it.

Since no two adrenal fatigue cases are the same, no two treatment plans are the same. Dr. Karampahtsis works with you and his staff to create a custom treatment plan by choosing from his comprehensive list of naturopathic methods. Depending on your specific needs, he recommends any of the following treatments:

  • A healthy, low-sugar diet
  • Increased hydration plan
  • Improved sleep
  • Light exercise
  • Stress avoidance or coping strategies
  • Intravenous vitamins or supplements
  • Hormone support
