Life presents us with an abundance of joys, and yet so many people are not able to fully enjoy life’s pleasures due disturbances in their neurobiology causing feelings such as anxiety and depression. Holistic, efficacious treatment strategies designed to help restore optimal neurobiology can help these patients regain their mental and emotional health; ultimately helping them live a happier, healthier life.
If you have symptoms such as tiredness, fearfulness, allergies, frequent influenza, arthritis, anxiety, depression, reduced memory and difficulties in concentrating, insomnia, worn-out, inability to loose weight after extensive efforts, you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue.
The adrenal glands are involved in a number of physiological functions in the body. They are involved in pulmonary function, blood sugar metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, central nervous system processes, cardiovascular function, haematological metabolism, hormone production, gastrointestinal function, and liver function. The adrenal glands play an important role in helping the body respond appropriately to changes caused by stress and different emotions.
When stress and poor nutrition lead to altered hormone levels, imbalance in endocrine function can lead to substantial fatigue. When you experience stress of any kind, the adrenals start pumping adrenaline and other hormones. These hormones get the blood flowing to the heart and muscles and at the same time pull the blood away from your digestion. They also stimulate the nervous system to speed up the heart rate. They prepare your body for stress.
As you push your body over the years coping with stress, living on caffeine, nicotine, sugar and alcohol with little sleep, the adrenals eventually become exhausted. In this state, the adrenals don’t produce like they used to.
If you are suffering from any of the above signs and symptoms, come in for a treatment with Haynes Acupuncture so you can be working at your full potential.
