“Adrenal fatigue”, “adrenal exhaustion “ and “adrenal burnout” are all terms for a condition resulting from your body being overwhelmed with stress. This condition is extremely common, especially in those with a fast-paced city life. It can occur at any age with major stressors, either emotional or physical. It is not a disease, but rather a state of decreased function and adaptation ability of the adrenal glands, our “fight or flight” system. It can be caused by one major stress or a result of chronic low-grade stress over a period of time.
