Adrenal Glands

You have two adrenal glands. They’re located on top of each of your kidneys. They’re part of your endocrine system.  Your adrenal glands are responsible for numerous hormone-related functions in your body. What most people don’t know is that the adrenals can be responsible for effecting blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Two of the most important hormones released by the adrenal glands are aldosterone and cortisol. Aldosterone helps control your blood pressure by managing the balance of potassium and sodium in your body. Cortisol works in conjunction with adrenaline and noradrenaline to help regulate your reaction to stress. Cortisol also helps regulate your metabolism, sugar levels, and blood pressure.

STRESS will affect how your adrenals work.  If you are under stress a lot, good or bad stress, your adrenals can burn out or fatigue.  The signs of adrenal fatigue are lower body obesity, difficulty getting up in the morning, high levels of fatigue during the day and high energy in the evenings, a weak immune system, cravings for salty foods, extreme irritability, high blood pressure, and high sugar levels.  Abnormal signals result from nerve blockage of the spine and can disrupt the amount of hormones that are produced.  For example, if too much cortisol is produced your cells become insulin resistant resulting in increased blood sugar = Diabetes.  We can check your adrenals very easily through blood pressure.  If your adrenals are fatigued, your adjustments with DSF supplementation will help to regulate them back to normal.
