Your Adrenal Glands are little Glands attached to your Kidneys.
They are impacted by stress – both the obvious big life dramas, and the small ongoing types of daily over-busyness, not enough sleep, over exercise, illness, viruses, wrong food and emotional ups and downs and shocks. Long term low self esteem can also be a major drain on your Adrenal hormones.
In the medical pic below, the Adrenals are the yellow bits on top of the kidneys. They don’t even seem to warrant a label! Is this an example of how overlooked they are?
In Chinese Medicine the Adrenals are understood to support chi’ or life force which is meant to sustain you through your whole life. But our modern lifestyles often require us to consistently dip into our reserves of chi for days, years or even for decades.
