90% of us, in the United States, are stuck in overdrive either in the exhaustion stage of HPA dysfunction or close to it. HPA dysfunction is also commonly known as “adrenal fatigue”. This can be caused by juggling all the things, from mom, dad, wife, husband, coach, teacher, co-worker, volunteer, boss, athlete, student, etc. The pressure in society today is never-ending.
Stress is not only caused by these external factors but internal ones as well, including toxins, mold, gut dysbiosis, parasites, Lyme, etc…
When we are under too much unrelenting stress without enough support or the tools to deal with it, we enter this HPA dysfunction stage and we pay the price with our health. Luckily along the way our incredible body sends us warning signs.
