Each of us have 2 adrenal glands that sit on top of our kidneys. Despite their tiny size, they are powerhouse hormone producers, cranking out adrenaline, cortisol, and aldosterone. These are both our "stress" and our "coping" hormones.
A short high-stress period or prolonged ongoing stress can result in adrenal burnout, also known as adrenal fatigue. Stress can be both physical as well as emotional. Physical stressors include accidents, illness, cancer, infection, inflammation, hypoglycemia, starvation, sleep deprivation, and toxicity. Emotional stressors can include job stress, death, divorce, financial worry, neglect, and trauma.
Since stress is rampant in our modern lifestyle, adrenal fatigue is becoming increasingly common and occurring in women at a younger age.
At Evolve, we understand that adrenal health is essential for your overall health, function, and aging. This is why all our Anti-aging Plans include adrenal care. Our approach to adrenal health includes:
Expert hormone care
Functional medicine doctors are some of the few doctors that are trained and experienced in helping with adrenal fatigue. Successful treatment requires multiple therapies which are not offered at most doctors' offices.
ADVANCED adrenal testing
Adrenal fatigue is NOT tested in conventional medicine, which leaves many patients suffering for years without hope or help. Adrenal testing requires an ADVANCED adrenal panel from functional medicine that is not available at most other doctors' offices.
Drugs do not fix adrenal problems. Restoration of adrenal health depends on using the natural therapies from Functional medicine that are not available in conventional medicine.
We offer comprehensive hormone optimization in our Anti-aging HRT Plans that include adrenal repair. Learn more about our Anti-aging HRT Plan below.
