– Adrenal Function & HPA Axis

The phrase “Adrenal Fatigue” is a bit misleading and confusing! I prefer to reference Adrenal Function, through an understanding of how the Brain (Hypothalamus + Pituitary) is communicating down to the Adrenal glands (HPA Axis).
The HPA Axis is short for “Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis”.

Stress impacts and signals your brain, which then tells your Adrenal glands to produce the stress hormone – CORTISOL.

Chronic stress can impact overall Cortisol levels, which can cause symptoms such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Low Mood
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Mid-Section Weight Gain
  • Crashing afternoon energy
  • Irregular Hormones
