Your adrenals are two small glands located on top of your kidneys that secrete stress hormones, such as cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline – All of which are used to prepare your body for a fight or flight response.
Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands are unable to keep up the pace needed, to secrete stress hormones on demand. As a result, they can't produce quite enough of the hormones you need to feel good. This can result in symptoms like exhaustion, weakened immunity, sleep disturbances, and food cravings.
The root cause of adrenal fatigue can be mental, spiritual, emotional, chemical or dietary imbalances.
