How Adrenal Fatigue Affects Your Quality of Life

adrenal fatigue

Are you constantly under stress from events at work, at home, or in your social life? Do you feel like life moves too fast, that there’s always so much to be done, so little time, and you don’t have the energy to keep up? All of that added stress is overwhelming your body and you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue. It’s normal to experience stress from time to time, but when everything is stressing you out, your body is constantly signaling for the release of the stress hormone cortisol. Repeatedly triggering this mechanism can exhaust its proper function and begin to experience fatigue. 

The specialists at Happy Hormone Cottage have years of experience in diagnosing and recommended therapy for adrenal fatigue. We can coach you on how to manage stress better as well as provide you with adrenal support products to help restore proper function to your endocrine system. Once your cortisol levels have stabilized, you will feel reenergized.  You can learn more about our adrenal support products, such as Adrenal Calm and Adrenal Boost, by visiting our online store

How Adrenal Fatigue Holds You Back

You feel burnt out and you don’t have the energy to accomplish your daily tasks, but unfortunately, life doesn’t slow down. Adrenal fatigue can seriously affect your quality of life as it influences your physical, mental, and cognitive ability. Any condition that affects those three fundamental aspects of your life needs to be treated with extreme care! If you allow adrenal fatigue to progress you can find yourself not sleeping enough, not eating well, and unable to think clearly. Separately, each of those symptoms can be problematic, but together they pose a real threat to your quality of life. This condition can affect the following aspects of your life:

Your personal relationships: if you are constantly tired and never have the energy to keep up, the people close to you may distance themselves if you continually cannot make plans and keep them. Those who aren’t experiencing adrenal fatigue may not understand your condition

Your career: you won’t have the clarity and motivation to pursue advancements at work. So much of your energy is burnt up by stress and worrying that you have no drive to go above and beyond.

Your financial stability: the symptoms of adrenal fatigue can cause you to fall behind at work, or in worst cases lose your job. It can be hard to explain that you don’t have enough energy and that your mind has been clouded.

The good news is that adrenal fatigue is manageable under the supervision of a medical professional that understands the condition. The specialists at Happy Hormone Cottage have been providing treatment protocols for adrenal fatigue and coaching patients on stress relief techniques to help them regain their quality of life and sense of normalcy.

Common Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

Cortisol is an incredibly powerful hormone, it serves very important functions but like everything, it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. Adrenal fatigue can be very frustrating to live with as it can stop you from living your day to day life and actually contribute to even higher stress levels. Below are some of the more common symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue:

  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping or insomnia
  • Difficulty waking up
  • Sugar/ salt cravings
  • Lack of motivation
  • Brain fog
  • Unexplained weight loss (sometimes weight gain is due to thyroid health)
