Call To Action – Are You Stressed and Fatigued?

Call To Action – Are You Stressed and Fatigued?

Yesterday I mentioned that I was taking
Diane to the doctor today…..

Well I did…. I had all my ammunition
ready because I was going to talk
with him about Adrenal Fatigue….

I had read about Adrenal Fatigue not
being a “REAL” medical term and was
not generally accepted by the Medical
community…..

I had collected information from Dr. James
Wilson’s book, ADRENAL FATIGUE:
THE 21ST CENTURY STRESS SYNDROME.

It was actually Dr. Wilson that coined the
term, Adrenal Fatigue.

I had two surprises when we finally saw
the doctor…… after two and a half hours.

Number 1…… the doctor was a SHE….
Number 2….. SHE was very pleasant
and very familiar with the term.  She was
also a Physician Assistant  (PA)….

Her name was doctor Rachel….

So….. when I ask about some tests from
Dr. Wilson’s book, she was again very
agreeable to run the ones they could.

I wanted the ACTH test run to check for
problems with the Adrenal Glands.=====
she agreed!

I wanted the Salivary Cortisol test run
but again…she said they couldn’t run
that particular test but she could run
a Cortisol level test.  We agreed on that one.

She wanted to see my printout on Adrenal
Fatigue….looked at it and said…. OH… we
can also run the test to check Diane’s DHEA
level in her blood and a Thyroid test.

I had highlighted the paragraph that said,
“You may also want to see a physician well
versed in bioidentical hormone replacement,
and get tested to see if you could benefit
from the use of DHEA” …. Again… I was
pleasantly surprised..

So the nurses came in to start taking blood and
also give her a “breath test”…. So I left the room.

A short time later, Diane came out and said,
“We’re going to have to come back Monday,
they tried several times to hit my veins to get
blood for the tests, but couldn’t hit them.”

Ouch!!!!

Ok…so we go back Monday,,,, but I’m VERY
pleased with Doctor Rachel and her whole
attitude…..

Will give another update Monday…..

But….one more thing I read last night in
the book, EAT TO LIVE.

Dr. Fuhrman made the comment,
“Before coming into my office, most
of my patients failed to achieve the
results they sought.  They experienced
either a worsening of their heart condition
or weight gain no matter what program
they chose, even those who followed a
vegetarian diet.  In my care, these same
patients are able to achieve impressive
results for the first time, because they “do it”
100 percent.  For some, “trying” is definitely
not good enough; it doesn’t work.”

Now I thought that statement was SUPER….

Why…… because that’s the same words I hear
over and over when we talk about Internet
Marketing……. When you WORK IT, or “do it”
100 percent….. and not just “TRY IT”…. It works.

It’s all in the decision and it’s all in the effort (work).

Call To Action – Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue

Call To Action – Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue

I’m writing on this tonight because Diane has
been feeling a little fatigued lately.  We did a
little reading and are going to the doctor tomorrow
morning to get tested.

For what????…… what is this you might say???

Watch this video.

Adrenal glands are known as “the glands of stress”, writes
James Wilson in Adrenal Fatigue: the 21st Century Stress Syndrome.

Actually there is no such condition according to the medical
community…. It’s not recognized by the AMA….

Dr. James Wilson coined that phrase after seeing so
many of his patients suffering from fatigue….

“When your adrenal glands are fatigued, a condition
known as adrenal fatigue or adrenal exhaustion,
your entire body feels it and suffers from
extreme exhaustion as well”. “It is estimated that
up to 80 percent of adults experience adrenal
fatigue during their lifetimes, yet it remains one
of the most under-diagnosed illnesses in the
United States”- James Wilson

Have you ever experienced any of these conditions?

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue:

  • Morning fatigue — You don’t really seem to
    “wake up” until 10 a.m., even if you’ve been
     awake since 7 a.m.
  • Afternoon “low” (feelings of sleepiness or
    clouded thinking) from 2 to 4 p.m.
  • Burst of energy at 6 p.m. — You finally feel
    better from your afternoon lull.
  • Sleepiness at 9 to 10 p.m. — However, you
    resist going to sleep.
  • “Second wind” at 11 p.m. that lasts until about
    1 a.m., when you finally go to sleep.
  • Cravings for foods high in salt and fat
  • Increased PMS or menopausal symptoms
  • Mild depression
  • Lack of energy
  • Decreased ability to handle stress
  • Muscular weakness
  • Increased allergies
  • Lightheadedness when getting up from a sitting
    or laying down position
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Frequent sighing
  • Inability to handle foods high in potassium or
    carbohydrates unless they’re combined with fats and protein

Since Diane has been experiencing many of these same
symptoms, we’re going in to get tested.

Treatment of adrenal fatigue

“Optimal adrenal health is one of the major keys
to the enjoyment of life,” according to Dr. Wilson.
If you have adrenal fatigue, you can fully live life
again by making the necessary lifestyle and dietary
changes to treat your disorder.

There are two tests that can be run to determine your level of
fatigue… they are the ACTH test which can be used to determine
under or over production of some hormones… However NORMAL
ranges typically don’t  recognize a problem unless outside the 2%
ends of the bell curve (less than 2%)…. You could be showing signs
at about the 15% level and experience sever fatigue and it
not be recognized by the doctor because “He’s taught to respond
to anything outside the lower 2%…. so 20% is well within
the NORMAL range.

The second test which is more reliable is the Salivary Cortisol test.

This test is easily run and should be covered by your insurance.
If not…it’s not that expensive….so do it anyway….

Now understand, we don’t normally recommend “self-diagnosis”…
however sometimes the doctors need a little guidance or a nudge
to get them looking…..

After all,,,, we are RESPONSIBLE for our HEALTH and WELLBEING….

We’ll give an update tomorrow night on our visit to the doctor.

In the meantime…. Do you have something to say???
