Because the adrenal glands have such a far-reaching impact on the body, adrenal fatigue can greatly impact life quality! Here are some ways to prevent adrenal fatigue, some symptoms of the issue, and tests to request in order to find out if you do suffer from adrenal fatigue.

The stressors of daily life affect our adrenal glands. Much like putting pressure on a gas pedal stimulates forward motion, our adrenal glands will secrete cortisol and induce forward motion of our body until it runs out of cortisol.

Unfortunately, some of the members' homes did not endure the quake, and many relatives of church members were even more seriously affected.
