Menopause Adrenal Fatigue
How Adrenal Health Affects Menopause

Menopause adrenal fatigue...it's important to understand the relationship between symptoms of menopause and the adrenals. Usually somewhere around 52 years old, you may find yourself in a transition.

The ovaries begin to shut down and not working as well. The ovaries don’t completely turn off. However, the adrenal glands are there as a back up to help out. 

There tends to be a major problem when the adrenals are tired or weak when going into menopause. This is when you begin to notice things happening to your body. 

1) Belly fat.

2) Collagen. This is the skin, hair, nails. 

3) You may feel you are getting older faster. 

4) Your mood is also affected. All the hormones are affected. 

5) Sleep patterns are also affected not to mention night sweats and hot flashes. 

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it’s usually because the adrenal glands are the weak link and it’s not able to do the work for the ovaries.  


What to do if you have an adrenal issue

The role of the adrenals is to adapt the body for a stressed state. The problem is, all stress accumulates in the body, even from birth. Stress is stuck there and we have to extract all the body stress. 

So all stress accumulates and the stress in your body needs to be extracted. 

Fight or flight response is in the adrenals. You need to get the adrenals to chill out. 

What you can do to help your adrenals...

1) B1. Helps to counter internal stress in your body. 

2) Potassium. 98% of all the potassium is in the cell. The main role of potassium is to support the nervous system. If you are low in potassium, then you have anxiety, stress, and nerve issues. Potassium affects the heart. It’s an electrolyte.

It’s important for calming things and helping with conditions like restless leg syndrome. You get a lot of potassium from salads and green veggies. Forget bananas because they are loaded with sugar and don’t have as much potassium as green vegetables. Avocados are also a much healthier option.  

3) Walking. Low intensity exercise helps to pull out the stress. 


Menopause Adrenal Fatigue - The Adrenal  Potassium Connection

Most everyone needs a lot of potassium.

There’s two types of people. One that is high adrenals and another that is low adrenals.

A disorder called Cushing’s is where your adrenals is pumping out lots of cortisol. This is a high state. Then you have a state where things become completely burnt out and nothing works anymore. This is adrenal burn out called Addisons.

 This is where you get lots of inflammation and you actually lose weight. You get pigment colors and actually get a tan.

Your immune system is really bad, but you’re burned out. If you have this condition, adding potassium can actually make things a lot worse. What a person with adrenal burnout needs is salt. 

Lowering the potassium and increasing the salt may be the answer. 

The major of the people needs to increase potassium. 

This is Addison’s vs Cushings.
