Adrenal fatigue, or adrenal burnout (a more extreme stage of adrenal fatigue) is “a major breakdown in the energy-producing systems of the body.”  The adrenal glands are overtaxed (that help us adapt to stress), and our bodies have accumulated toxic metals as a result, as a temporary stopgap measure – unfortunately with negative long-term impact. Toxic metals are everywhere around all of us, in our drinking water, air, food and products. These metals include copper, aluminum, mercury, nickel, and others. Toxicity causes the body’s mineral levels to be off, and inhibits absorption. In a healthy state, we absorb and utilize calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and other minerals to perform bodily functions. If these levels and ratios are off, our body does not function as well. Symptoms of this include fatigue, brain fog, emotional upset, and more.
