More specifically, you want help with How to Test Yourself for Adrenal Fatigue?

Hey, it’s me again. I want to create a video on how to test yourself
for adrenal fatigue. Again, this is not the definitive diagnosis
for adrenal diseases. I’m just teaching you this so you can get
some clues and maybe some potential weaknesses within your adrenals, but you go to your doctor
to confirm it, okay? That said there are several symptoms that
go along with the adrenal function. You can’t get to sleep easily. Maybe you’re exhausted at 9:00 and if you
don’t go to bed between 9:00 and 10:00 and you miss that cut off you start waking up
and now you really can’t get to sleep, maybe 11:00 or 12:00 and you’re just wired. And now it takes 90 minutes because you missed
the wave. Then you might get up at 2:00. You might wake up feeling exhausted. Those are symptoms of the adrenal. You’re tired in the day, especially an hour
after lunch you’re exhausted, you need a nap. Yet at 2:00 in the morning you’re very wide
awake. Achy. You can call that whatever you want. You can it plantar fasciitis. That’s inflammation of the feet. You can call it fibromyalgia. All that means is you’re running out of the
anti-inflammatory hormones and your whole body is achy. Brain fog, hard to focus, non sequitur, you
go in a room, can’t remember why you went in there. It’s just not clear. You’re reading a book. It doesn’t really go in. Low tolerance. People are starting to get on your nerves. You’re edgy. You go into a room and you see something out
of order and your attention focuses in on only that and not the rest of the room. Breathing issues. That has to do with two things, number one,
going up the stairs, a flight of stairs and your legs are getting heavier. Or at night you can’t get enough air. That’s a symptom of adrenal because your pH
is actually too alkaline, not too acidic, and that you’re having breathing problems. Sinus, the sinus does get congested with adrenal. That’s one thing. You get allergies as well. Decreased libido is adrenal. Lastly, dizzy when you stand up. Let’s pretend that you’re laying down like
that on a table and then you lay for about three or four minutes and you take your blood
pressure. Then you stand up and take the blood pressure. That is the test to measure adrenal function. It is called the Ragland’s test. Basically you just check your blood pressure
lying down. Wait, just relax for a few minutes, and then
stand up and check your blood pressure. Now normal blood pressure is 120 over 80. Let’s say it’s 120 over 80 and when you stand
up this blood pressure, the top number, that’s called the systolic, that should go up by
6 to 10 points normally. With adrenal fatigue it will go down or it
goes excessively too high. It’s really a simple way to determine your
ability to adapt to gravity stress. Now that’s how you do the test, but here’s
the thing. Let’s get to the purpose of the adrenal and
your adrenal gland. Your adrenal gland is the survival gland. It actually helps you cope with stress and
helps you adapt your body to stress. Standing up is a little bit of gravity stress
and your body will then adapt and raise the blood pressure to adapt for that position
change. Because if you did not adapt to that gravity
stress there won’t be enough blood flow in your brain and you will pass out. Thus, the symptom of dizzy when you stand
up too fast. You get that? That’s a good way to see if your body is adapting. Another way you could run up the stairs, and
if you get out of breath too fast from a little run up the stairs we know that’s an adrenal
issue or heavy legs. Some people will get up too fast and they
can even pass out. That’s an injury and a weakness. Because what happens, the adrenal gland has
an outside. This is all gland tissue, and they’re both
on the kidneys. And it has an inside. The adrenal gland is the only gland that has
two parts, an inside and an outside. The outside is all gland tissue, produces
hormones. But the inside is all nerve tissue. I don’t know if you knew that. So it’s all nerve tissue in there. It has a kind of a double thing. The nerve tissue inside the adrenal produces
hormone-like messages and they’re called neurotransmitters. Adrenaline, noradrenaline, serotonin, dopamine,
gaba, those are all neurotransmitters and adrenaline is a stress hormone. Adrenaline is there to help neurologically
activate certain things, like if you being chased by a tiger the artery has to open up
to the heart, the lung has to open up. I mean think about it. They�ll even give people an EpiPen, epinephrine
to help them breathe if they have an allergy. They�ll even inject the heart with adrenaline
to open up the blood flow. In other words, this tissue on the inside
is part of the adrenal system, of the stress response. It gets your body to adapt to stress. If you wanted to know the name of that nervous
system, I�ll just give it to you. It�s called the sympathetic nervous system. Another name for the sympathetic nervous system
is the flight or fight mode. You probably heard that tossed around but
I want to explain what that means a little bit more. If you see a lion in the wilderness chase
a zebra, the lion is attacking. He’s fighting the zebra. The zebra is flighting, is running away. They’re both experiencing flight or fight. It just depends on what end of the spectrum. The lion is looking for supper and the zebra
is looking to avoid being supper, and so it’s both a stressful situation. One, is a starving situation. �If I don’t eat that animal, I’m going to
be � I’m going to die.� It’s a survival thing. Zebra, �If I get eaten, I won’t survive.�
That’s what flight or fight means. We all have this system inside our body. But we’re not being chased by tigers. What we’re being stressed out is the news,
the media, other people, threatened financial disasters, threatened stresses, losses, physical
trauma. You have a lot of other stresses, worry, that
type of thing. That type of stress is equivalent to physical
trauma. Basically in a thumbnail sketch if you�re
suspecting that your adrenals are fatigued, you can simply just check. One test you can just basically check the
blood pressure lying and standing, and seeing if this blood pressure goes up 6 to 10 points. If it doesn’t, then we know there’s some weakness
within that system. There’s a lot of videos I have on what you
do about adrenal fatigue. But I wanted to explain just a way to test
it. Now in this next part I want to show you one
more part or one more thing that happens with adrenal and a very simple thing you can do
to help with adrenal fatigue. One of the problems with a burnt-out adrenal
is that you start excessively thinking and analyzing everything. Let me demonstrate. �Oh my god, how many calories is this? Gosh, my wife is really irritating me. John at work, he is just really something
else. My videographer, he�s taking way too long.� When you’re doing this excessive thinking
I know it’s hard to turn it off, but really you have to realize what’s happening. You’re losing or you lost your space. The best thing, the easiest thing that you
can do when you’re stressed out is create space. What do you do? You get outside, go for a walk, go for a hike,
get out there and just get your attention on something else. Do it for an hour. Do it for longer. It’s very therapeutic to add more space. Because what that will do, that will chill
out the adrenals, allow you to heal better, versus going into the gym behind the treadmill
and trying to watch that TV screen right there. Yeah, you worked out, but you didn’t get any
more space. You really have to balance out the entire
day of activities for something that will just get your attention going way out there,
all right? Hope that helps. I�ll see you in the next video.
