Adrenal Fatigue, or simply a state of “drained energy” is a serious condition that few people are often aware of. It is also very misunderstood, frequently diagnosed as “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,” “Fibromyalgia” or even Depression and not even thought of as a true condition. Whatever you want to call it, there is a situation that exists where you may feel tired all the time, depressed, get sick often & nothing seems to help. You can think of it as an “energy debt” kind of like sleep debt.
Our bodies have a certain amount of energy which is supposed to last our whole lives. How we choose to spend this energy determines how long we live. “Adrenal Fatigue” is simply a state where a person has drained some of their lifelong energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine & Ayurveda, this form of Energy is called the “vital essence” or stored energy given to us by our parents. However, through overworking, overtraining & chronic stress without adequate rest or nutrition, we can tap into this stored energy & become adrenaline junkies. It also comes with many side effects, including fatigue, muscle, & joint pain, depression (from feeling like crap everyday), a weakened immune system & potentially shortened lifespan.
Any time you overwork yourself, overindulge in sugar and caffeine to get through another day, experience chronic worrying or anxiety, overdo it with exercise, undergo excessive stress or deprive yourself of sleep or rest, you can start tapping into your adrenaline to function. Runners on a runner’s high, college students pulling all nighters, gym rats, worry warts, caffeine addicts, type A personalities and of course the infamous extreme sports athletes have all used some of their adrenaline prematurely.
