What are adrenals?
The adrenals are two small glands that sit atop the kidneys. They are responsible for releasing calculated and small amounts of stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline, that trigger the fight or flight response that helps us deal with life-threatening situations. Because so many of us are living our lives in a stressed-out emergency state, we’re now releasing stress hormones relentlessly.
What is adrenal fatigue?
The term “adrenal fatigue” has been used to explain a group of symptoms that are said to occur in people who are under long-term mental, emotional, or physical stress. The theory is that too much stress wears out our adrenals that then get tired and don’t produce enough cortisol for us to feel energized. So why aren’t our family doctors telling us about this?
Adrenal fatigue is a commonly identified diagnosis from alternative medicine practitioners but is not recognized by conventional physicians. It is based on nonspecific symptoms such as fatigue, lack of energy, depression, weight problems, insomnia, cravings, caffeine dependency, and more. These all can occur with many unassociated health problems.

How can NutriChem help with fatigue?
NutriChem’s BCB test evaluates most of the previously mentioned biochemical causes of fatigue. Food sensitivity tests may be added to the BCB. One of NutriChem’s clinicians will be able to engineer a customized supplement which will address the individualized biochemistry of a person.

“I am a super sensitive person and I react to most new supplements, medications, and can’t tolerate a variety of foods”. I hear this statement a lot from patients and it is often my first clue that I should be investigating their allergic history.
