Adrenal Fatigue Makes News
The Daily Mail have today published a short article on the prevalence and potential management of Adrenal Fatigue.
Adrenal Fatigue is any decrease in the ability of the adrenal glands to carry out their normal functions. This can happen when your body is overwhelmed, or when stress exceeds the capacity of your body to compensate and fully recover. As a result of the increased endocrine related demands the adrenal glands can become fatigued and are unable to continue responding adequately to further stress.
Adrenal Fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a “syndrome” that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia. Many factors can reduce adrenal function, and it is often an accumulation of such triggers over a period of time which are responsible for the syndrome known as adrenal fatigue.
It seems that this condition is becoming more common as the stresses of the last 12 months or so catch up on people in the UK.
The increasing prevalence of the syndrome presents one of the most interesting medical paradigms of our time. First coined by Canadian alternative medicine specialist Dr James Wilson in 1998, the term Adrenal Fatigue is beginning to be recognised by mainstream health organisations.
Dr Wilson co-founded the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. A scientist as well as a doctor, he has written books on the condition, runs a support website for sufferers, and also claims to have helped thousands of people suffering from the illness regain their health and vitality.
Nutri-Link has worked with Dr Wilson for the last 2 years and stocks a limited number of his dedicated supplements, with more under review. You may be interested in purchasing his lecture series from the web site and refreshing yourself on the mechanisms involved and the type of simple interventions you can make to bring about a return to normal function.

This one day event is designed to explore some of the clinically relevant evolving events in microbiology, mucosal immunity and functional medicine as it relates to inflammation and health. The presenters are well known for their many years of work in research, analysis, practice and lecturing. They will present substantive evidence of these evolving trends and how they impact on clinical decisions, describing where evidence is preliminary, novel, or of greater substantiation. The day will have a strong clinical bias and provide a welcome opportunity for questions and answers.Click for further information
