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.

  • Low energy

  • Feeling overwhelmed

  • Having digestive issues - pains, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea

  • Tense muscles

  • Sleep disturbance

  • Poor memory and concentration

  • Constant worrying

  • Easy to get cold and flu

Scientifically, the Stress is shown to be one of major cause of serious health problems as well.

Stress can alter our metabolism and our body may become 'imbalanced'.

  • Mental Health - Anxiety and depression

  • Cardiovascular Health - High blood pressure, heart disease

  • Skin Health - Skin irritation, acne, psoriasis, eczema, hair loss

  • Digestive Health - Constipation, diarrhoea, GERD, gastritis, nutrient malabsorption, ulcerative colitis

  • Obesity

  • Menstrual problems - Irregular cycle, too much or too little bleeding
