Adrenal Fatigue is becoming increasingly more common in today’s culture. An increase in both internal and external stressors is to blame. Although adrenal fatigue is not a serious concern, if it is left untreated it can lead to more serious diseases such as Addison’s disease. Fortunately, functional medicine is highly effective in treating adrenal fatigue and restoring your adrenal system to optimal health. Dr. Sarah Washatka seeks to educate her patients on the many ways adrenal fatigue presents itself in day-to-day life. In addition to this, Dr. Washatka equips her patients with the tools they need to live a life void of adrenal fatigue.
Oftentimes, individuals are unaware that they are suffering from adrenal fatigue. This is because many of the symptoms present themselves slowly. Many adults today will simply explain their symptoms away, blaming them on a busy week or non-stop schedule. Some of the most common symptoms of adrenal fatigue include:
– Body Aches and Pains
– Trouble Sleeping
– Extreme Exhaustion and Fatigue
– Salt or Sugar Cravings
– Weight Gain or Weight Loss
– Dizziness or Shakiness
These are just a few of the ways that adrenal fatigue presents itself in adults. Because the symptoms of adrenal fatigue are rather common, they are easily overlooked. Unfortunately, many people mask their adrenal fatigue by consuming stimulants such as caffeine. This is why it is crucial to work with a functional medicine doctor.
Your adrenal system plays a crucial role in the proper production of hormones that fuel your body. When your adrenal system enters adrenal fatigue, these important systems fail. This can cause many health concerns which are simply unnecessary and entirely avoidable.
Healthy Lifestyle Habits

Some patients suffering from adrenal fatigue may even benefit from herbal supplementation or natural medications to restore their body to optimal adrenal health.
