Extreme Exhaustion

Extreme Exhaustion

The winter of 2012 was when I really saw a change for the better in my health.  Exhaustion was consuming me.  I would usually get up at 10 AM and then head back for a 3 hour nap daily!  I went to bed by 9 PM nightly so you can see that my life was pretty limited.  I knew something wasn’t right and I needed to find out what.  Tests showed I had Adrenal Fatigue and possibly Hypothyroidism in addition to food allergies!   I know exhaustion is one sign of Adrenal Fatigue but I didn’t know that recurrent infections, anxiety and panic attacks, depression as well as joint pain and light headedness can also all be signs of Adrenal Fatigue which I had!!

Adrenal Fatigue can cause a host of health problems:

•Severe fatigue – the number one symptom of adrenal insufficiency
•Anxiety or panic attacks
•Hair loss
•Muscle and joint pain•Chronic fatigue
•Dizziness or lightheadedness upon standing
•Recurrent infections
•Allergies and/or asthma
•Irregular menstrual cycles
•Infertility
•Low libido
•Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
•Hypotension (low blood pressure)
•Heart palpitations
•Difficulty “bouncing back” from stress
•Cold and heat intolerance
•Depression
•Headaches

Do you have many of these symptoms?  Don’t suffer…seek treatment from a  place like Hotze Health & Wellness Center  where they address conditions such as Adrenal Fatigue, Hormonal Issues and Hypothyroidism.  They use safe and natural bioidentical hormones and desiccated thyroid supplementation to restore hormones to optimal levels, strengthen the immune system, and increase energy levels.     They use a more holistic approach where combining the best ideas, protocols and treatments culled from the alternative medicine industry are used in a program that will bring you back quality back to your life!

Many of these symptoms listed above can be due to Hormonal Imbalances.  Goodness knows, my hormones haven’t been right for years.  I had to have a complete hysterectomy when I was young.   Bioidentical hormones would have been the way to go but my mother had breast cancer and the doctors didn’t want me to take any hormones.  Over the years since I had my hysterectomy there has been a much better understanding of how bioidentical products restore hormones to their optimal level.   So achieving the delicate balance of hormones would have definitely helped me perhaps not have Adrenal Fatigue or other issues such as symptoms from low thyroid.

MD’s view thyroid levels very differently than alternative medicine practitioners.  For example, my physician MD says my levels are normal but low.   My naturopath said I should try supplements for my thyroid to help it make more itself since I was on the low side.   Since I have started treating my hypothyroidism, I no longer need a nap!  I have energy all day.  It is amazing.

I would highly recommend that if you think something is wrong, listen to your body & your heart and see a medical professional that can help you.    Places like Hotze Health & Wellness Center are there to help you enjoy a better quality of life, naturally!   Find one.

      Well that’s what I thought ANN*H. Just my aging. But having some treatment for things found has made a world of difference in my life activities.

    What the heck I have never heard of adrenal fatigue?? I have been exhausted for over 2 years now. I have been to many different doctors had many different tests (blood tests) and still no answers. I sleep like crap at night, so my dr prescribed Ambien (I also tried two of the oils you sent me). During the day I can barely keep my eyes open, I have dreams and snore, I sleep during the day like I should at night!!! I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in early 2000, and opted for the radioactive iodine pill to suppress my thyroid, so now I am hypo. I also was diagnosed with depression in 2005. I am on hormonal birth control so there is no tests for hormone levels. I have started seeing a neurologist for my extreme headaches. So here I am at 40 and I feel like I am 80. I will talk to my dr about Adrenal , do you know if it is a specialized blood test. (I have no idea if I have been tested it for it)
    Thanks for posting this you may have changed my life. ((((hugs)))

    I have a complete book on adrenal fatigue. Wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy (not that I have any, ha). You can’t depend on many doctors to understand so it pays to research yourself. Great post to discuss this debilitating ailment.

      Thanks Deb E. I have looked into the possibility of having some adrenal fatigue myself!

    I’ve had ongoing exhaustion the last year or two so it’s interesting to read about things like this. Long-term stress, anxiety, depression can be symptoms and also causes for many issues. I should check into more natural remedies.
