Overview

This ebook (approx. 9,287 in length) is also a section found in my more comprehensive resource titled: "The Everything Thyroid eBook!" and is being made available for readers interested in natural and prescribed treatments for Adrenal Fatigue, specifically.

This book is compiled from articles I wrote on the subject of adrenal fatigue between the years 2005 and 2009 that contain information on conditions commonly related to the syndrome, with emphasis on treatments that are available, of both the prescribed and natural types. Included in the information is discussion on the most suspected causes for diminished adrenal gland function, resulting in symptoms. Within these discussions, I point out both the successes and failures reported by medical research groups, who have tested the efficacy of cortisol steroid hormone treatments for patients with sub-clinical forms of adrenal insufficiency. I also discuss the positive results that other adrenal fatigue patients experience with alternative and natural self-treatments.

The importance for recognition by the medical community for adrenal fatigue syndromes is also an included aspect within the chapters that follow and I dedicate most of the final chapter in this book, to the subject of conventional-medical versus alternative-natural treatments, pointing out the reality that both can be positive or negative, depending on each case they are administered for. This latter aspect is not included, to confuse the reader but to simply point out that patient-individuality comes into play, as well as trial and error, when superior treatments are being sought for individuals with adrenal fatigue syndromes.

The point is hopefully conveyed adequately, that options for treatments are not restricted to one type but that some adrenal fatigue patients can respond favorably to more that one type treatment or in some cases, to a combination of them. Through patient self-education and pro activeness, optimal treatment can be found but understanding the causes of adrenal fatigue for an individual and knowing whether or not there are co morbid conditions present (related, coexisting ones) can help with the determination for treatment options. With thyroid disease being common in adrenal fatigue sufferers, I also dedicate a portion of the information that follows, to the relationship of thyroid to adrenal function.
It is my sincere hope that readers will benefit from the information contained within the chapters of this book.

Meet the Author

I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I received Editor's Choice Awards for articles on health subjects.

In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis - temporary hyperthyroidism). A common heart murmur I was diagnosed with in my teens called "Mitral Valve Prolapse", also worsened in severity of symptoms, with the development of these other health disorders.

My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders.
