Adrenal fatigue may be one of the most pervasive conditions of our time

Say goodbye to fatigue

Some days you wake up on the wrong side of the bed — or on the early side of it — and just can’t get your “get up and go” going.

But for so many people, it’s happening more and more. Not just a day here and there, but it’s becoming a way of life. It’s like most of us are running on empty.

In a recent article about fatigue, Dr. Lauren Deville listed a few health concerns that may be at the root of the problem. But of all the possible causes, she singled out one as the cause she sees more often than any other: adrenal fatigue.

In fact, adrenal fatigue may be one of the most pervasive — but ignored — problems of our time. That’s because it’s the very product of this stressful time we live in.

The secret to boundless energy

Forty years ago, if you wanted a double espresso, you’d have to go looking for an Old World coffee house or an Italian restaurant.

Today? A double espresso is as close as the nearest Starbucks. Or even closer. My local Walgreen’s now has an espresso machine!

And if you need a pick-me-up on the way there, you can stop at 7-11 for a Red Bull or a 5-hour Energy.

It’s probably not a coincidence that all these quick-energy-boosters have exploded on the market at the same time. In just the past few years, our lives have become more hectic and fast-paced than any of us could have ever imagined.

And, with email, texting, smart phones and iPads, we have hardly any downtime.

But most people don’t grab double espressos just to enjoy them. Most people crave those energy shots because they’re fighting off fatigue. What’s worse, many people are going from boost to boost just to maintain some sense of normal.

And for many of us, stress is directly linked to fatigue.

Here’s how it works. Stress prompts your adrenal glands to produce a hormone called cortisol. It helps you cope and keeps you alert. Adrenals also produce DHEA, an energy hormone. But when stress becomes chronic, cortisol production stays high. Then DHEA levels drop and fatigue sets in. Your stamina wanes. You can’t concentrate.

And that’s when your body sends that signal: Get me a cuppa Joe — now!

But the Joe won’t save you. It will give you a boost. You’ll feel better for the moment. But then you need another, and another, and another…

The good news is that you can break free of this rut, get your hormones back on track, and literally turn your whole life around.

Thanks to Dr. Mark Stengler.

Dr. Stengler is one of the pioneers in recognizing and addressing adrenal fatigue. You may have seen him on one of the major TV networks, or on PBS where he has a weekly show.

For many years, at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Stengler has helped thousands of patients with adrenal fatigue.

Through his clinical experience, Dr. Stengler has developed a balanced regimen of vitamins, herbs, and other botanicals called Adrenal Performance Plus. This formula has produced remarkable results in eliminating fatigue for his patients.

In fact, Dr. Stengler shared the following note with me from Christopher O. from Wisconsin: “[Just] 2 months into Adrenal Performance Plus. I have astoundingly better concentration; absolutely no lack of energy, and a lot better sleep — I highly recommend.”

Of course, results vary, but this is just one of the many people who have had success with Adrenal Performance Plus.

Dr. Stengler is now working with one of our affiliate companies to help bring his fatigue-fighting formula to even more people. And while I wouldn’t tell you about it if I didn’t believe in it, I do want you to know that HSI does receive a commission on sales of Adrenal Performance Plus to our readers.

But don’t take my word for it. You can hear more success stories and learn more about how Adrenal Performance Plus can help you feel energized, stronger and healthier here.
