Adrenal fatigue is a problem faced by most individuals in today's stressful society. The impact of stress is substantial, with prolonged exposure leading to degenerative and progressive physiological change brought about by the excessive stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system.
To date no specific medical condition exists that is able to diagnose this progression to health degeneration. The term adrenal fatigue syndrome encompasses the broad spectrum of non-specific yet debilitating symptoms associated with the chronic adaptation to stress and degeneration of health. Symptoms include tiredness, fearfulness, allergies, frequent influenza, arthritis, anxiety, depression, reduced memory and difficulties in concentrating, insomnia, worn-out feeling and an inability to lose weight after extensive efforts.
This research examines the condition adrenal fatigue syndrome and aims to investigate and discuss the changes brought about by chronic exposure to stress.
