What is Chronic Fatigue?

When we find ourselves constantly in a high-stress environment, our body may not be able to keep up with restoring itself. The overburdening of our bodies takes a toll on our adrenal glands responsible for releasing various stress hormones, cortisol being the most important. The gland becomes exhausted and cannot function properly.

Adrenal fatigue is very common, but when the fatigue becomes chronic, more symptoms may arise. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a disease categorized by extreme fatigue, sleep abnormalities, and pain that increases with activity. The main symptom is fatigue for over six months that does not improve with rest.
