Have you had difficulty getting up in the morning, after going to bed at a reasonable hour? Have you being feeling exhausted for no reason? Lack of memory? Are you craving salty and sweet snacks? I know this might sound like an infomercial but the reality is that more and more Hispanic Americans will answer “yes” to these questions.
The problem is Hispanics believe it has to do with the stresses of everyday life. Work, economy, acculturation, family, even discrimination are blamed for these symptoms. The truth is our body helps us fight through these stresses thanks to our adrenal glands, but when you’re constantly asking your body for more it can affect how the adrenal glands function.
The adrenal glands are two glands that sit on top of your kidneys. The outer part of the gland is called the adrenal cortex and the inner part of the gland is called the adrenal medulla. The adrenal cortex generates essential hormones such as cortisol (helps your body respond to stress and regulates the metabolism) and adolsterone (helps control blood pressure) and sex hormones. The adrenal medulla generates non-essential hormones such as adrenaline that helps the body react to stress.
In stress, whether it be physical, emotional, or mental, the adrenal glands responds by maintaining homeostasis. If their response is insufficient, you are likely to experience some level of adrenal fatigue. The adrenals become over-stimulated and the body surpasses the capacity to recover leading to adrenal gland fatigue.
