Doctor Oz did a segment called “Extreme Exhaustion: The Secret Reason You’re So Tired” to cover the topic of Adrenal Fatigue – a controversial condition that many people and doctors say does not exist. However, could Adrenal Fatigue be the secret reason that you are so tired? All humans have a “fight or flight” hormone that happens when we feel we are in danger: your pain threshold increases, you are overly alert, your heart pumps faster, your eye pupils dilate, you sweat, you are hyper aware of what is going on outside of you. This reaction can help you survive when in a dangerous situation, but it can be a big problem if your body gets “stuck” in this mode all of the time. Has stress thrown our adrenal glands out of wack? Perhaps the daily stress in our lives is just too much for us? Dr Oz said that Dr James Wilson first named this condition Adrenal Fatigue in 1998 and Wilson believes a huge percentage of Americans suffer from this.
