Adrenal imbalance is something that every woman needs to be aware of.

Who Can Benefit From Adrenal Imbalance Treatment?
Women who are suffering adrenal imbalance are usually feeling tired, stressed, and have low energy due to the imbalance lowering their levels of other critical hormones. The adrenal glands are a significant source of testosterone for women. Adrenal fatigue can contribute to low testosterone in women. The benefits of treating adrenal fatigue in women include:
- Increased Energy and Stamina – By improving adrenal function, our adrenal fatigue treatments help to boost metabolism, which improves your ability to turn fat into energy.
- Improved Libido and Better Sexual Performance – Since adrenal fatigue in a woman lowers her levels of critical hormones like testosterone, our treatments can increase testosterone and provide increased sex drive, less vaginal dryness, and more satisfying sexual experiences.
- Improved Memory and Cognition – By raising the levels of critical hormone output, treating your adrenal imbalance can improve memory, focus, and concentration.
- Reduced stress – A key symptom of an adrenal imbalance in women is increased cortisol levels. Cortisol is known as the stress hormone. Our adrenal imbalance treatments include stress reduction techniques designed to limit the overproduction of cortisol.
- Improved digestion – Women with an adrenal imbalance tend to have digestive issues. Our adrenal fatigue treatments have been shown to improve gut health which improves digestion and helps to reduce bloating, gas, and other types of gastric distress.
- Stronger bones – Since our adrenal imbalance treatments are designed to raise a woman’s level of testosterone and her other critical hormones, stronger bones and a decreased risk of osteoporosis are additional benefits.
How Does Hormone Adrenal Imbalance Therapy Work?
The adrenal glands produce three types of steroid hormones: glucocorticoids (cortisol), mineralocorticoids (aldosterone), and androgens (DHEA/DHEAS).
Cortisol enables the body to respond and adapt to the stresses of daily life. It also helps to maintain blood sugar levels and promote a healthy immune system. Aldosterone works to balance salt and water in the body. Androgens secreted by the adrenals provide the majority of DHEA for women.
For women, the adrenal glands are the major source of testosterone. Adrenal fatigue can contribute to low testosterone in women.
Treating adrenal fatigue involves making lifestyle and dietary changes designed to reduce stress and correct your adrenal imbalance. Your adrenal imbalance treatment plan may include certain dietary and nutritional supplements as well as some type of hormone therapy. Your particular adrenal imbalance will be treated based on your unique symptoms and lifestyle.

Common Questions About Adrenal Imbalance and Adrenal Fatigue
Common Questions About Adrenal Imbalance and Adrenal Fatigue
What is adrenal fatigue?
“Adrenal fatigue” is a term applied to a collection of nonspecific symptoms, such as body aches, fatigue, nervousness, sleep disturbances, and digestive problems. The term “adrenal fatigue” was coined in 1998 by James Wilson, Ph.D., a naturopath, and expert in alternative medicine. He describes it as a “syndrome” that results “when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level.”
How is adrenal fatigue diagnosed?
There is no test that can detect adrenal fatigue. Many times, a person will be told he or she has adrenal fatigue based on symptoms alone. Sometimes, a blood or saliva test may be offered, but the results and analysis of such tests are often not enough to give a definitive diagnosis of adrenal fatigue.
What causes adrenal fatigue?
The root cause of adrenal fatigue is stress. Our doctors understand that adrenal fatigue is a condition caused by overstimulation of the adrenal glands due to long-term stress. When you are overstressed, the adrenals release too much cortisol. Cortisol lowers your testosterone levels, which adds to many of the problems associated with adrenal fatigue.
Are there ways to avoid adrenal fatigue?
You can lower your risk of adrenal fatigue by reducing stress and improving your lifestyle. Make changes such as giving up smoking, alcohol, and drugs. Starting an exercise program, eating healthy foods, and following a daily routine for sleeping and waking will almost always make you feel better and could help you avoid the problems of adrenal fatigue.
How is adrenal fatigue treated?
There is no specific “treatment” for adrenal fatigue. Treatments will be designed to target the root causes. Lifestyle changes and supplementation may be recommended to reduce stress and cortisol release. Hormone replacement may be used to bring hormones back into balance that were thrown off by the increased production of cortisol due to adrenal fatigue.
