SLEEP AND ADRENAL FATIGUE CONNECTION

SLEEP AND ADRENAL FATIGUE CONNECTION

Have you ever had trouble falling asleep, or even after a full night’s sleep, you felt like you hadn’t slept at all? 

 

The reasons vary from person to person, but one of the main reasons could definitely be adrenal fatigue. It is essential to understand it and tackle to avoid further problems regarding sleep and overall health.

Chen Ben Asher, as a Board-certified nutrition specialist, can say that up to 80% of her clients have some issues related to sleep as well as mental fatigue, mood, and mental focus. A lot of them have a common complaint that they seem to have a brain fog that makes it hard to focus and function on different tasks.

More and more research shows a connection between different sleep disruptions and hormonal imbalance. Adrenal fatigue is one of the things to check when there is a lack of sleep. It also negatively affects weight and everything that is linked to it.

What are adrenal glands?

Adrenal glands themselves are small glands on top of the kidneys. They produce hormones that help the body maintain a good level of blood sugar. One of these hormones is called cortisol. Adrenals also are responsive to the inflammatory response.

 

In sleep, connection adrenals are usually overactive (hyperfunction) and underactive, which causes different sleep problems.

Adrenal fatigue

It occurs when adrenals are underactive. People with this issue have a problem staying asleep.

Adrenal fatigue symptoms (by Dr. Richard Hagmeyer D.C, director of The Naperville Institute For NeuroMetabolic Solutions):

  • Anxious state
  • Craving for salt
  • Low pulse
  • Dizziness upon standing and sitting quickly (everything starts getting fuzzy and black)
  • Slowness, fatigue especially (in the morning and evening)
  • Afternoon headaches, etc.

Untreated people might appear to have a constant lack of energy. One of the real-life examples that I can share is a woman with her professional career as a library worker. Even though the work itself doesn’t demand a lot of physical or even mental activity, she would complain about an inability to do the tasks and needed to have at least a 30-minute power nap. The first thing that she would do after coming home would be falling into bed. And she would have a troubled sleep (rolling over in the bed many times). And all this was going on for years.

It is also important to note that during sleep, when blood sugar levels start to drop, the body needs to have an appropriate cortisol level to deprive the body of a stress response. So the body releases adrenalin hormones that can also wake us up in the middle of the night.
