Online PR News – 24-February-2010 – – (Los Angeles, CA) In a video produced by Larry Cook, author of The Beginnerâ€™s Guide to Natural Living (http://www.thenaturalguide.com) Dr. Angela Agrios, ND explains how Naturopathic Medicine can successfully reverse adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue is common in our society and is characterized by difficulty getting out of bed, low energy, low stamina, daily fatigue and inadequate energy throughout the day. The adrenal glands are part of the endocrine system â€“ which is the hormone system â€“ and they are responsible for the production of cortisol, an essential hormone required to maintain proper blood sugar, sustain stamina and modulate inflammation. The goal of Naturopathic Medicine is full recovery from adrenal fatigue through lifestyle changes and natural medicine treatment.
Naturopathic Medicine is a natural medicine model that emphasizes the identification and treatment of the root cause of disease in order to permanently restore health. Conventional and alternative diagnostic testing is used to evaluate the root cause of disease symptoms and then diet and lifestyle modifications are prescribed in adjunct with appropriate nutrients, botanicals, homeopathics and natural hormones to enable healing of the affected areas of the body.
â€śSugar and refined carbohydrates stress out the adrenal glands, and I ask my patients to greatly reduce refined carbohydrates in their diet. Sleep is very important and patients need to properly rest and rehab during adrenal recovery. When treating adrenal fatigue, I often prescribe vitamin B5, vitamin C, and magnesium. I also prescribe adoptogen botanicals such as Siberian ginseng, rhodeola and ashwagandha to help rehabilitate the adrenal glands. If adrenal gland function is seriously compromised, I may also use glandular adrenal extract from animals so as to allow the adrenal glands a rest,â€ť says Angela Agrios, ND.
Natural living is a lifestyle that minimizes the intake of processed and chemicalized foods while maximizing the intake of whole, organic foods. Other aspects of natural living include detoxification, regular exercise, shopping at a health food store, using effective supplements and visiting holistically oriented doctors. Mr. Cook says, â€śVirtually every disease and health condition can be prevented or reversed when someone adopts a natural lifestyle. This is essentially a conscious effort to eat the best food possible every day while avoiding processed and chemical foods in order to attain maximum nutrition, which then promotes a state of health and healing. For specialized assistance with diseases and health problems, I recommend visiting a Naturopathic Doctor.â€ť
Dr. Agrios says, â€śIâ€™ve treated a lot of patients with adrenal fatigue, and Iâ€™ve had great success treating them. Iâ€™ve seen their afternoon crashes go away, they can now exercise because they have more stamina, skin issues like hives or eczema dissipate, and even seasonal allergies will go away.â€ť Mr. Cook says, â€śNatural living and natural medicine work because the body will heal itself when given the right conditions. When people take responsibility for their food choices and lifestyle choices that affect overall health and decide to work with a qualified natural medicine professional such as a Naturopathic Doctor, symptoms like adrenal fatigue will completely disappear.â€ť To watch Dr. Agrios, ND explain in detail how she diagnoses and treats Adrenal Fatigue, visit http://www.thenaturalguide.com/nd/ag-adrenal-fatigue.html.
