Adrenal Disorders

Your adrenal glands (located above the kidneys) are small triangular glands which regulate your body’s reaction to stress by releasing hormones into the bloodstream. This function is vital in the body’s ability to adapt to stress.

If the release of hormones significantly increases or decreases over a prolonged period of time, chronic conditions will develop. Hormonal deficiency or overproduction has significant effect on the heart, blood pressure, metabolism, bone, immunity and nervous system.

Dysfunction of these stress hormones symptoms:

    • Weakness or fatigue

    • Loss of appetite

    • Nausea or vomiting

    • Weight loss

    • Abdominal pain

    • Salt craving

    • Muscle weakness

If left untreated, this condition can cause:
