Adrenal Dysfunction

Stress And Your Response To It Affects How You Feel!

The adrenal glands are responsible for the fight or flight response of the body to situations of stress. When the system goes into overdrive it can overwhelm the body.

Adrenals And Stress!

Every vital function in the body is regulated by hormones. The endocrine glands are responsible for storing and producing these hormones which then cause the desired effect. Adrenal glands placed on top of the kidneys have a vital function in responding to stress, by way of regulating the hormones such as cortisol, epinephrine and norepinephrine. When faced with a situation that requires swift action, the body’s fight or flight mechanism is activated. Blood is pumped into the areas that need it the most to provide an escape from the scene, and other functions such as digestion are on pause, for the time being, allowing the body’s escape mechanism to receive all the energy it needs.

What Is Adrenal Dysfunction?

If stress did not invoke the desired response, havoc would be created as the body wouldn’t know what to do. This is exactly what happens during an adrenal dysfunction. Due to over abuse of this system, the glands are desensitised to triggers and thus, do not produce the necessary hormones in time, namely adrenaline (epinephrine) and noradrenaline (norepinephrine).

What follows? 

You can no longer comprehend how to react and a state of overwhelm ensues.

Adrenal Dysfunction And Stress

Are you feeling fatigued and unable to carry out daily chores?

Do you often experience lightheadedness? 

Are you constantly looking for energy sources to get you through the day? 

It may be an adrenal insufficiency that is causing these feelings. Get natural therapy with zero side effects. 

While the production of cortisol by the glands is vital in the body’s response to any pressure situation, constant triggering of the mechanism could cause an overwhelm. This would lead to an underproduction of cortisol when the body really needs it and could have disastrous effects. Naturopathy does not simply address the endocrine glands during therapy, but rather this entire mechanism and all the parts involved in it. 

The HPA axis works to ensure optimal response to the situation. It is a feedback loop system on the basis of which it functions 

  • A stressful event occurs 
  • The sympathetic nervous system produces epinephrine and norepinephrine that cause perspiration and an increase in heart rate, usual responses to something that causes fear in humans
  • The HPA axis is activated
  • The first part of the axis, the hypothalamus senses the rise in norepinephrine levels and secrets corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) in response
  • CRH too contributes to the perspiration, increase in heart rate etc. 
  • It also has another role which is to activate the second part of the axis, the pituitary gland
  • The gland secretes adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) which further activates the last part of the axis, the adrenal glands
  • The hormone causes the glands to produce cortisol that helps the body get the extra energy supply it needs to deal with the stress
