The truth about adrenal fatigue.

First, let’s set the record straight. Adrenal fatigue is the common term used to describe the medical diagnosis of HPA axis dysfunction. Parsley Health can help you feel better.

The HPA axis regulates your stress response.

Hypothalamus

A part of the brain called the hypothalamus initiates a stress response.

Pituitary

The pituitary gland receives the message and releases hormones.

Adrenal

The hormones travel to the adrenal glands to create cortisol.

So, what is HPA axis dysfunction?

When the HPA axis fails to regulate the stress response, it produces unhealthy levels of the hormone cortisol. Common symptoms of HPA axis dysfunction include:

Chronic fatigue

Insomnia

Energy dips

Weight gain

Trouble losing weight

Caffeine or carb cravings

Anxiety and depression

Inability to focus

Poor immune function

Bloating

GI issues

Memory loss

Too much stress = Too much cortisol.

If the HPA axis sends a high stress response, your body will make more cortisol than it needs.

High levels of cortisol boost your heart rate and blood pressure—and tell your cells to turn off other processes so your body can focus on the threat at hand. (Even when there isn’t one.)

In short, too much cortisol can be bad news for your body.
