Stress and Your Adrenal Health
How would you score your stress level is on 1 to 10?
We are in a busy society and stress is everywhere.
Busy work, parenting, finance, relationship and so on....
When we are under stress, our adrenals which sit on top of our kidneys produce and release hormone called cortisol. People may also call cortisol as 'stress hormone'.
Our body is designed to handle small stresses, but when it becomes chronic, our adrenal glands need prolonged exposure. As a result, the adrenals may become fatigued and may make us unwell mentally and physically.
Are you experiencing conditions like below? Your adrenal may be screaming for help.
Having digestive issues - pains, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea
Poor memory and concentration
Easy to get cold and flu
