Adrenal fatigue and menopause

One of the most typical symptoms of menopause is a continuous and persistent feeling of exhaustion and fatigue, both mental and physical.

How did exhaustion and fatigue affect my hair?

Feeling exhausted can be exhausting, but when hair loss follows, the combined symptoms are bothersome.

I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue:

What is adrenal fatigue?

How can you explain it?

Adrenal fatigue begins to lower levels of the hormones estrogen, progesterone, thyroid, and adrenals and can impair body function. Every person with adrenal fatigue manages to have a different set of symptoms which I listed:

  • allergies
  • anxiety
  • Asthma
  • autoimmune disease
  • Chronic inflamation
  • dark circles under the eyes
  • Depression
  • Dizziness
  • Dry Skin
  • exhaustion
  • tired
  • food cravings
  • frequent urination
  • insomnia/insufficient sleep
  • irritability
  • bread stamp
  • lack of energy
  • poor attention span/concentration
  • low blood pressure
  • low blood sugar
  • low sexual desire
  • lower back pain
  • memory lapses
  • mental irritability
  • Numbness in the fingers / Poor circulation
  • stress
  • fatigue
  • weak immune system
  • weight gain

These feelings are unexplained signs of menopausal fatigue, and you may be missing your usual zest for life.

The adrenal glands, located on top of each kidney, provide hormones that help the body manage blood sugar, burn protein and fat, react to stress such as extreme illness or injury, and regulate blood pressure.

Stress prompts the adrenal glands to produce excessive amounts of cortisol, the stress hormone. Which is the number one enemy of public health. Stress raises cortisol levels: it impairs learning and memory, reduces immune function and bone count, increases weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, and heart disease.

High levels of cortisol deplete collagen, which refers to a group of proteins present in skin tissue that is more active and abundant in our youth. These proteins are responsible for the elasticity, smoothness and firmness of our skin. As protein is depleted, our skin becomes more prone to wrinkles, sagging, and dark lines.

Also like insulin and bone density decrease leads to hair loss. Constant high levels of stress cause the adrenal glands to become overactive due to the increased need for the stress hormone cortisol.

If you want to get your energy levels back to where they were, there are a few things you need to do:

  • To meditate
  • improve your diet
  • Improve your sleep hygiene.
  • Eliminate sources of stress from your life
  • change your lifestyle
  • Deep breathing exercise/Yoga
  • Use of essential oils

Adrenal fatigue causes cravings for salt and sugar due to a lack of strength to balance minerals such as sodium, potassium and magnesium in the blood. Supportive nutrients for adrenal fatigue include vitamins B5 and B12, vitamin C, probiotics, and herbs in tea form, such as ashwagandha, licorice root, and maca root. Also, be sure to use high-quality supplements.

Note: It is critical to address a woman’s adrenal health before “treating” menopausal symptoms.
