Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

A holistic, balanced approach to Adrenal Fatigue can get you feeling like yourself again.

Cortisol, produced by the adrenal glands, is needed for us to tolerate prolonged stress. Humans survived and evolved as we did because this stress response system kept us alive during famine and attacks by predators.

In modern times, we have different stressors that are less dangerous, but always present such as over-scheduling, lack of sleep, and poor diets. This chronic stress results in the cortisol imbalances that we refer to as adrenal fatigue.

When cortisol is out of balance, other hormones can be disrupted, especially thyroid, insulin, progesterone, and testosterone. Symptoms of adrenal fatigue often overlap with those of peri-menopause, menopause, hypothyroidism, and low testosterone:

❖ Fatigue

❖ Menstrual changes

❖ Hair loss

❖ Weight gain

❖ Low libido

❖ Brain fog

❖ Insomnia

Cortisol imbalances are identified with a comprehensive urinary hormone panel. Using an integrated, science-based approach, adrenal fatigue can be managed with bio-identical hormones, targeted supplements, and lifestyle changes.

Becoming a Patient

Please fill in the contact form below and request an Information Package. This package includes details such as fees, whether or not you need a referral from your doctor, types of testing offered, and appointment information.

At your first visit, Dr. Hatfield will review your medical history, then order a comprehensive panel of labs to determine your baseline hormone levels. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to get you started on your program and to monitor your progress.

Each and every patient is unique, so response to treatment varies. Some patients notice results within the first 2-3 weeks while others may need additional time and monitoring before experiencing improvement.
