Adrenals: are hormone producing glands located on the top of each kidney and are responsible for production of adrenaline and cortisol.

Overview

From the Young Again perspective, the adrenals are ‘coping glands’ that are responsible for dealing with stress and anxiety; they are closely linked to leptin and insulin resistance and Factor-X.

The adrenals affect the ability to get a good nights rest; and they influence the thyroid gland and how it functions. The adrenals greatly affect energy and fatigue levels.

Women handle stress differently than men; they internalize stress which takes its toll on their systems affecting female hormone production and female health.

Falling hair, loss of eyebrows, and to some extent, graying hair, particularly in females, is a sign of adrenal stress.  Generally, it takes several weeks just to ‘settle’ people systems when their adrenals are exhausted.

Avoidance of sweets is critical to the process; deep sleep is mandatory.  Use of Pu is advised.

The adrenal glands are heavily influenced by the bowels, bowel activity and liver function.

For women who are having hormonal difficulties, particularly menopausal and post menopausal issues, it is important to understand that both the adrenals and thyroid influence hormonal balance, sweats, hot flashes and sleep.

It should be noted, that insulin and leptin resistance is a CORE factor in adrenal and thyroid issues; so much so, that if resistance issues are not resolved, hypothyroid, obesity, premature aging and systemic inflammation, (particularly in women) can be expected.

Lastly, there is STRONG evidence that cognitive issues from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to vascular dimentia, brain fog, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s and autism are directly related to low-grade inflammation in the brain and adrenaline resistance.
