Burn-out is a result of long periods of excessive physical or emotional stress. The adrenals are the two small glands on top of the kidneys that produce cortisol. Under prolonged stress, short bursts of cortisol are released into the bloodstream. The adrenal fatigue theory suggests that prolonged exposure to stress could drain the adrenals leading to a low cortisol state.
Excessive sleep / insomnia
Adrenal fatigue occurs more often in women than in men.
Good news is that this condition is entirely reversible.
Acupuncture therapy helps you rapidly recover from adrenal fatigue. Acupuncture turns on the parasympathetic nervous system which is the relaxation part of our nervous system. When that system is turned on, the heart rate returns to normal, digestion improves, and sleep significantly improves.
