Adrenal Support Infusions for Chronic Fatigue
One of the major roles of the adrenal glands is to enable the body to deal with stress. They largely determine the energy of the body’s responses to every change, whether it be to the body’s internal and external environment. Whether they signal attack, retreat or surrender, every cell responds accordingly, and the results can be felt immediately or in the long term. It is through the actions of the adrenal hormones that the body is able to mobilize its resources to escape or fight off danger (stress) and survive. This is generally noted as the “Fight or Flight” response.
The adrenal glands are responsible for regulating hormone levels, including DHEA, testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. Persistent stress can result in an increase in the main stress hormone cortisol. Adrenal fatigue may result from the constant arousal state experienced during stress and result in a reduction in the ability to regulate hormones necessary to manage the stress response and for good health.
The adrenal infusions incorporate a combination of nutrients vital to strengthening the body’s capacity to manage stress and improve fatigue. The infusions include therapeutic doses of Vitamins C and B (B complex, B5, B6 and B12), minerals such as magnesium and potassium. The doses vary in accordance with the degree of fatigue as does the frequency of treatments. Generally an adrenal function profile (salivary assessment) is recommended prior to treatment to quantify adrenal function and adjust the nutrients in the infusion accordingly.
