“Doctor, I just want the Chronic Fatigue and Brain Fog to stop! I want my life back! Please make it go away, I just want to be the person that I used to be.” If this sounds familiar, we have answers for you! You don’t need to suffer with these symptoms. There is a reason.
Most people with chronic fatigue think they’ve tried everything. But I can confidently tell you that you haven’t tried it all and you haven’t even come close. There are many causes for Chronic fatigue but the one most often overlooked is a problem with the adrenals.
Why Am I So Fatigued, Run Down and In A Perpetual State Of Brain Fog?
Welcome! My name is Dr. Richard Hagmeyer and since 2000, I have helped hundreds of patients like you all over the country and now all over the world, get their lives back with an approach that corrects the underlying root cause of Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Insufficiency, Adrenal Burnout and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFS)
Chronic fatigue syndrome, or CFS, is a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue that is not improved by bed rest and that may be worsened by physical or mental activity. People with CFS most often function at a substantially lower level of activity than they were capable of before the onset of illness. In addition to these key defining characteristics, patients report various nonspecific symptoms, including weakness, muscle pain, impaired memory and/or mental concentration, insomnia, and post-exertional fatigue lasting more than 24 hours. In some cases, CFS can persist for years or a lifetime without proper treatment.
If you are like most patients who stumble on our Chronic Fatigue/Adrenal Fatigue Recovery Program, you’ve probably been searching and scouring the internet, asking your friends for advice, making appointments with doctors and then more doctors, getting non functional testing, only to end up with the same old frustrating treatment…
Another sleeping pill, another antidepressant, another potion or lotion or some other maddening response that doesn’t help you truly get better. If that’s the case then I’d love to talk to you because you’re just the person I want to help.
Why Standard Approaches Fail At Treating Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
If you or a loved one is suffering with Chronic fatigue Syndrome you are probably aware of the many symptoms that go along with it poor sleep, unexplained weight gain, memory loss, Brain Fog, anxiety and depression.
Traditional medicine treats these symptoms by medicating with sleeping pills, antidepressants, antianxiety pills, and or thyroid medications. Unfortunately, this treatment approach may lead to more complications and more health problems due to the side effects of these medications down the road.
The focus on drugs also tends to suppress early-stage symptoms rather than treat their underlying causes. Before you resort to covering up your symptoms with these drugs, I urge you to check the function of one of the most neglected glands in your body… your adrenal glands.
Every challenge to the mind and body creates a demand on the adrenal glands. Today, these challenges are endless: the threat of losing your job, lack of sleep, a demanding boss, financial pressures, yo-yo dieting, relationship problems, death or illness of a loved one, skipping meals, reliance on stimulants like caffeine and sugar, digestive issues, over-exercise, illness or infection.
The result…adrenals that are over producing and are constantly on high alert. The over worked adrenal glands eventually wear out…resulting in a commonly missed condition…ADRENAL FATIGUE.
What Exactly Are The Adrenal Glands and Why Are They So Important?
The adrenal glands are one of the most important organs in your body. These small walnut-sized glands located on top of each kidney are important control centers for many of the body’s hormones and guide the body’s reaction to stress.
The inner portion of the adrenals, called the medulla, secretes epinephrine and norepinephrine – the famous “fight or flight” stress response hormones. The outer portion of these glands produce nearly 30 steroid hormones, of which cortisol, aldosterone, estrogen, testosterone and precursor DHEA are the principal ones.
When healthy, your adrenals can instantly respond to stress by increasing your heart rate and blood pressure, releasing your energy stores for immediate use, slowing your digestion and other secondary functions, and sharpening your senses.
The healthy stress response of the adrenal glands are to take priority over all other metabolic functions. However, they weren’t designed to last for extended periods of time.
Unlike our ancestors, we live with constant stress. Instead of occasional, acute demands followed by rest, we’re constantly over-worked, under-nourished and exposed to countless toxins. This all burdens our adrenal glands and if not corrected in time, the end result are Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms
