Dr Oz: Siberian Ginseng Pills
Do you always feel tired? The Adrenal gland is the organ that may make you feel 10 years older than you should. For this segment, Dr Oz introduced Rochelle, who stated that she always felt tired. Rochelle was a recent newlywed and admitted to Dr Oz that she’s not as “rambunctious” as her husband would like her to be. Dr Oz then asked her what she would do if she had more energy and she stated she would like to run and knit. (Knit? Really? She just told Doctor Oz that her husband was looking for a little more nookie and she stated she wanted to knit?) Take the fatigue quiz. If you answered yes to 3 or more of the questions, you may have Adrenal Fatigue.
Dr Oz: Fatigue Quiz
1. Do you wake up tired even after a good night sleep?
2. Are you gaining weight in your middle? (Who isn’t?)
3. Do you crave salty foods?
4. Are you irritable and pessimistic all the time? (Again, who isn’t?)
5. Do you have a interest in your husband or wife? (I don’t think so, but ask my husband and he may say different.)
Whether adrenal fatigue is real has been debated for years. This condition can make you feel 10 years older and is often likened to what many refer to as “burnout.”
Dr Oz had Rochelle put on the gloves. He showed Rochelle a kidney and she felt it. (Yuck!) Attached to the kidney was a fatty pad, which was the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland made cortisol, adrenaline and testosterone. The adrenal gland was located in the middle part of the body and sits on top of the kidneys. A normal adrenal gland had plenty of cells. When you got tired or burned out, the cells shrink and ended up looking like a raisin. Adrenal fatigue happened when the cells weren’t receiving enough blood.
