HealthScan Video Series: Introduction to the Adrenal Glands

Learning Goals and Outline:

The Adrenal Glands:

They are tiny glands above the kidneys that produce adrenaline and other hormones.  Over-production or long-term production of adrenaline can have negative effects on your body.

Functions the adrenal glands directly affect.

  • Blood Pressure
  • Blood Sugar
  • Hormone Balance
  • Menstrual Cycle
  • Energy
  • Immune System
  • Mineral Balance

Lack of minerals can cause:

  • Difficulty sleeping  –  inability to turn off racing thoughts
  • Muscle cramps
  • Your muscles and body to become dehydrated, leading to frequent urination, dry eyes, mouth and skin and constant thirst
  • Poor ability to deal with stress
  • Nose bleeds
  • A craving for salty foods

Suggested support  for lack of minerals is HealthScan Solutions Trace Minerals.

Overuse of adrenals create an accumulation of cortisol.

  • Causes inflammation
  • Stores up more fats rather than burning or removing from body

Adrenals are a backup for many other systems so when the adrenals get run down many other systems suffer.

Common causes of weak adrenal glands:

  • Excessive caffeine
  • Energy drinks (these increase adrenal activity, therefore increasing energy, but rapidly wear down the adrenal glands affecting many other systems)
  • Excessive exercise
  • Lack of sleep
  • Long term stress, physical or emotional
