The need for a good diet in the body can never be underestimated. Your food ought to be your medicine. Most of the diseases that we now suffer from are as a result of poor diet. From elementary schools in home science lessons pupils are taught on the benefits of balanced diet, however most of these lessons are never carried out of the classrooms; they are confined within the walls of the classroom and children enjoy sampling some of the ‘sweetest’ delicacies or snacks that end up to be a slow poison in their lives. Today children are suffering from various diseases that are a corollary to poor diet even adults are victims and this explain why obesity has since become a world threat. With proper diet very many diseases can be prevented or even fought and won. To begin with let’s know what adrenal fatigue is.
The term Adrenal Fatigue refers to a stress-related condition that is suffered when the adrenal glands, hypothalamus and pituitary gland are functioning below their optimal level. If the adrenal glands are new to you then you need to spare some time out of your rather busy schedule and learn on their functions, it by doing this that you will know how important they are and the need to take care of them well by eating the foods that will maintain their good health. the adrenal glands perform very vital roles that all aims at maintaining our good health but most importantly they control how the body respond to stress by releasing hormones like cortisol, DHEA and epinephrine, which are used to regulate your heart rate, immune system, energy storage and improve the general health and stability.
The adrenal glands will weaken when they are overstimulated for a long period of time. Some of the common causes of adrenal fatigue include long term exposure to stress that may stem from job, family, relationships. Another cause of adrenal fatigue is long-term suffering from chronic diseases. After a long term exposure to stressing environment the adrenal glands will be weakened so much that they will be incapacitated to perform the ordinary functions they ought to perform. When the adrenal glands have failed to perform optimally, a person will begin having such feelings of tiredness, mild depression and lack of enthusiasm.
