Functional Medicine - Kalish Method

Stress symptoms manifest differently in each person (insomnia, body pain, fatigue, infertility, headaches, etc.) and the cause also differs from person to person (divorce, overwork, childbirth, moving, loss, etc), but the common denominator is that the adrenals are the organs that are primarily affected.  After a period of prolonged, chronic stress, your body starts to run out of the hormone precursor material that it uses to make certain hormones. As this continues, it becomes more and more difficult for your body to produce the required levels of stress hormones, sex hormones, and other hormones and neurotransmitters needed to function properly. This is when when the ‘adrenal fatigue’ starts to kick in, and that’s when you need to offer your body some extra support.
