What is Adrenal Fatigue Exactly?
“Adrenal Fatigue” is coined but a more accurate diagnostic label is termed: HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis D (dysregulation) or HPA-D for short. There are four primary triggers for HPA-D:
Perceived stress: Emotional and psychological stress.
Glycemic dysregulation: High and low blood sugar, or alternating between the two.
Circadian disruption: Sleep deprivation, too much light exposure at night, not enough exposure to day light, shift work, and frequent travel between time zones.
Inflammatory signaling: Inflammation caused by poor diet, physical inactivity or overtraining, gut dysfunction (SIBO, dysbiosis, gut infections, leaky gut, etc.), autoimmune disease, and many other modern sources of inflammation.
Some important things to note about adrenal fatigue:
Adrenal fatigue is not recognized the medical literature.
But, that doesn’t mean that it’s a myth.
In our experiences, adrenal fatigue is definitely a real thing. Here’s data to back that up:
Fatigue makes up more than 20% of all guest contacts in primary care or 18 million visits in the US. 75-90% of primary care visits have been reported to be stress related. Conventional medicine is often at a loss of how to care for these guests.

Adrenal Fatigue Research: What Science Has To Say About It
Again, adrenal fatigue is not a scientifically recognized condition.
While this is the case, current research is being done to determine the validity of the condition (with promising data coming forward).
A recent study concluded that:
“There are significant variations in individual characteristics of chronic fatigue. It is likely that there is some dysfunction of the HPA axis present, especially with respect to ACTH and possibly DHEA.”
So, it appears that there are some structural imbalances that make adrenal fatigue not only probable, but likely.
Thankfully, there’s good news based on the medical research:
“We believe that there are ‘return to play / return to life’ strategies that are evidence-based, for our clients presenting with fatigue”
