Adrenal Fatigue and its effect on Rheumatoid Arthritis
Are you experiencing any of these stress-related symptoms?
Constant fatigue, for no obvious reason Bursts of energy late in the evening
Cravings for sweet or salty food Insomnia, difficulty staying asleep
A weak immune system A feeling of being overwhelmed
Difficulty getting out of bed in the morning
Did you know that all of these can be caused by the under-functioning of your adrenal
glands and endocrine system?
You might be one of the millions of people who have experienced stress or trauma, and
who are now suffering from a condition named Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
There is a complex relationship between Adrenal Fatigue and Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) which is an inflammatory auto-immune disease which attacks the synovium, or connective tissue, around the joints of the body.
Rheumatoid Arthritis acts as a chronic stress on the adrenals, which may well exacerbate Adrenal Fatigue.
The effect that adrenal hormones have on the autoimmune system may influence the development and progression of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
The inflammatory immune processes of the body are quelled by cortisol, the adrenal hormone.
During Adrenal Fatigue, cortisol levels are lowered and therefore not sufficient to keep these inflammatory processes in check.
In addition, the pain from the Arthritis may seem to be more intense during Adrenal Fatigue.
The routine medical treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis with corticosteroids (synthetic cortisol) aggravates this negative relationship between RA and Adrenal Fatigue.
Although they may be helpful in temporarily reducing the pain and inflammation of Rheumatoid Arthritis, they also tend to suppress natural production, and slow down normal adrenal function.
Return to normal adrenal function can take a long time after a prolonged course of these drugs.
The careful guidance of a skilled physician is vital to enable coming off corticosteroids and to optimize adrenal function successfully.
A crucial aid to health for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis is full adrenal support.
Do you find yourself constantly fatigued and unable to drag yourself out of bed in the mornings? Do you struggle to cope with stressful situations?
If so, you may well be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome.
