Adrenal-related issues are seemingly epidemic today—many people complain of some degree of “adrenal fatigue” or “burnout.” This is hardly surprising given the incredibly stressful world we live in today.

The unfortunate truth is adrenal-related issues are poorly understood by nearly everyone. Also, most natural health care providers still practice using outdated theoretical models from the 1950s, which fail to hold up in the face of modern stress physiology. In fact, the vast majority of so-called “adrenal issues” have nothing whatsoever to do with the adrenal glands themselves!

In this book Nora Gedgaudas offers you a cutting-edge paradigm that will not only help modernize adrenal concepts, but also will help you better identify what type of “adrenal dysregulation” you have and what you can do about it. You will be surprised at what you discover in these pages and thrilled by what you’ll learn!

5.0 von 5 Sternen finally a possible root cause for adrenal dysfunction 21. August 2014
Von Irene Pop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I gave this book a 5-star rating because I truly appreciate the contents and the amount of research involved and I believe everyone with a adrenal dysfunction should give it a good read. Otherwise, I would only give this a 3.7 to 4 star rating and I will list the reasons for that as well.

Some of the positive things in the book:
(1) it begins with a description of the "classical" view of adrenal fatigue and the theory is quite helpful.
(2) new theories related to adrenal dysfunction are presented and this is a huge plus in my view; examples: adrenal dysfunction is not always progressive in nature, it's not always the result of only one factor, treating the cause of the adrenal dysfunction is much more important to a permanent cure than treating the adrenals themselves.
(3) it describes the role of the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands and particularly the role played by cortisol alongside the role played by melatonin.
(4) it provides a really good explanation on why one should never take melatonin and it also indicates a good supplement to take instead of melatonin.
(5) it includes some sound advice like going to sleep to a good hour and sticking to a healthy schedule, turning off your wi-fi router, "taking" vitamins like B6 (i am not at peace with the whole idea of popping pills even if it's plain vitamins and i think a healthy diet and some whole-food supplements should do more good than pills), avoiding working on a computer late at night (it fails to mention that even watching TV late at night is bad because seeing many, different faces can trigger the need to socialize and this awakes you instead of letting you get a good sleep).

(6) it clearly presents the sections of the brain involved with regulating your adrenal function and this is the best part of the book because it points so well to why taking adrenal gland supplements or simply popping vitamins and minerals the adrenal glands need will not provide a permanent cure to the fatigue caused by adrenal dysfunction - the book even provides a second most likely cause for fatigue: mitochondria damage; going back to the role of the brain, the book stresses the fact that we should all focus on its health. some of the most important points made in the book as regards the interaction between the brain and the adrenal glands are:
(a) the hippocampus mitigates the stress response and helps regulate adrenal cicadian rhythms; the hippocampus holds the highest number of cortisol receptors in the brain; there is also a list of symptoms of hippocampal dysregulation provided
(b) the midbrain controls the amplitude of the adrenal/cortisol response and it has the highest number of IL6 receptors in the brain; there is so much detailed info on the symptoms associated with an overactive midbrain and on the importance of breath!!! - this is truly vital information if you are a "chest breather" like myself;

(7) there a good presentation of the brain-gut connection and of the role of gut health; e.g. did you know that l. rhamnosus helps regulate GABA levels and thus calm an overactive midbrain?
(8) there are comprehensive lists of supplements, products and tests one can take/do in order to get proper and complete diagnosis and presumably get well.

The things I don't agree with:
(1) the ketogenic diet - the author's main advice is to follow a paleo ketogenic diet; I have tried this diet hoping so badly that it would help me! my personal conclusions: those that are against it are right. I do believe that it is highly important to restrict the amount of carbs we eat but still I would never think of restricting it to less than 75g. A good amount of carbs would be 100 to 125g / day, particularly if you also exercise. Some really good info on the carb/protein/fat ratio and on why starch is needed can be found in The Perfect Health Diet by Jaminet. Why do I think starch (albeit in a low amount) is good for us? Mainly because it feeds our friendly bacteria, includig L. rhamnosus mentioned earlier for its part in maintaing goods GABA levels.
(2) the use of adaptogenic herbs like rhodiola, ginseng etc. - whenever I take any of these herbs my immune system gets depressed. Particularly if you have some immune system problem, you should really verify the role of any such herbs before taking as some may overstimulate a part of the immune system and any type of imbalance is bad.
(3) the whole chapter on neurofeedback - unless you are a neurologist with decades of experience in the use of the kind of devices advocated in this book (which I highly doubt the author is), I wouldn't personally give the kind of advice provided in this particular chapter; I would rather see a therapist for stress management than use the devices listed in the book any time of the day. I fully agree that some of them may be helpful on the short run and possibly even on a medium term but do we really know for sure they are ok in the long run? If you need theta brain waves, go for cds with sounds of nature like sea waves, and not devices that haven't been tested long enough (at least not long enough for me to declare safe.
(4) some of the tests recommended in this book are quite expensive and at times I wondered how useful they truly are; if you want to protect your brain, you definitely need to stay away from wheat and similar plants and, in this particular case, what is the use in paying $ 400-600 for a test that will confirm that you are sensitive to any particular part of wheat? also, there are some really good books on digestive health that dismiss the need for expensive tests on sensitivity to different foods. some authors even suggest that an elimination diet along with a gradual inclusion of possible problematic foods is far better than relying on a test. and once again, are we really certain those tests only provide sound results?
(5) nowhere in the book is the idea of religion/meditation mentioned and this is a much safer and definitely much more verified/time-tested method for stress management than any of the devices covered by the neurofeedback chapter.

Despite all the negatives, there is still a lot of good info in this book and it's this that makes me give it a good rating.
Unfortunately for us all in the search for health, there is no shortcut - we still need to eat a good diet, maintain good sleep hours, exercise and take any required measures to manage stress. Also we need to be extra careful whenever we decide to take a certain supplement no matter how natural it's supposed to be as even foods can be toxic if eaten in excessive amounts.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dense with fascinating, cutting-edge information that's easy to understand and use. A brilliant new work. 5. Juli 2014
Von Chris Decker, ND - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
First, let me say that there are few books I've been as excited to see coming down the pike as this one, and I'll tell you why. As a naturopathic physician, I can attest that it's difficult to overestimate the enormous number of people for whom fatigue or "adrenal burnout" are frustrating and debilitating drags on their health. Yet, despite the prevalence of this miserable scenario, the medical model most doctors use to treat it is completely antiquated, stubbornly stuck back in the 1950s. Until now, that is, because suddenly all this has changed.

In one fell swoop, with the publication of Rethinking Fatigue: What Your Adrenals Are Really Telling You and What You Can Do About It, Nora Gedgaudas, CNS, CNT, has brilliantly and entirely revamped the way we look at fatigue from all causes.

For one thing, we learn that "adrenal" fatigue is often not adrenal at all. The adrenal glands, which mediate stress in the body, are but "hormone factories" doing the "bidding of the brain," Gedgaudas explains, and to understand the whole picture we must look upstream to that organ, which is what's really calling the shots. In other situations it can be autoimmunity that's driving it all, the adrenal glands simply the unlucky target organs of what is essentially an immune problem, the wages of our toxic world. Cases like these and others -- all of which Gedgaudas elegantly elucidates -- shed light on why it is that so often merely taking handfuls of adrenal supplements doesn't cut the mustard. Any doctor worth their salt will recognize all of this as cutting-edge thinking.

Written for a wide, popular readership with an obvious intent to help, the book is at once easy to understand -- Gedgaudas has a relaxed, often wryly humorous style -- but is never simplistic, providing just the right amount of detail to make it of great practical use.

And useful it is. This book is by no means a mere teaser! It contains extensive, solid information, not only about concept but also about concrete, effective actions one can take on one's own in terms of such things as nutritional intervention, laboratory testing (some of which one can self-order), supplements (how and when to use them), and important sections on techniques like neurofeedback as well as other strategies one can accomplish in the privacy of one's chambers.

Anyone familiar with Nora Gedgaudas' previous book Primal Body, Primal Mind (arguably one of the best books out there about the paleo approach to nutrition and physical and emotional health) will once again recognize this author's impeccable scholarship and characteristic inclination to think one level deeper than the rest of us poor slobs.

I'll freely admit that Rethinking Fatigue is far and away the best collection of information I've ever read on the subject and the only work I've encountered that puts everything together into a clear, cohesive whole replete with instruction manual. If you get half of this wonderful book under your belt my bet is that you'll know more than most practicing physicians. And if you, like so many other people, suffer from fatigue, my guess is that you'll start to feel a heck of a lot better. (One last thing: if you to need to download a free Kindle reading app so you can read Rethinking Fatigue on your computer [as I did!], just click here and you will possess it in a trice: http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000493771.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read it in One Day and began implementing solutions 6. Juli 2014
Von Rebecca Shierman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I had been waiting eagerly for this eBook to come out. I have actually been doing a lot to support my endocrine glands especially my adrenals as I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue 4 years ago. So when I got a retest this last spring I was sure it would be a good report because I felt so much better. But with it showing that I still had it, yet to a lessor degree, I was pretty upset. Hence why the eagerness knowing this book would show up soon.
I literally read it in one day. It was fascinating to me that Chapter 5 of the book was like a photo of what is still going on with me. I had been to my NP twice recently and was offered none of the solutions that Nora outlined. Today I implemented a few of the suggestions and I saw immediate improvement. No need for a nap mid-day today.
And then stress hit me today from an unexpected source, and I immediately noted that I was sighing. Nora wrote about this specifically and how it would affect my brain which would affect my adrenals so I started doing the breathing technique she taught in the book. It did help me calm down, and the sighing stopped.
What I liked most is that she had a significant list of things written in the book thatt I could do to help myself and I intend to add them as able to my daily routine.
Thank you Nora for making this an easy read of the latest research for people like me who really want to find the root cause and the solutions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Are We Truly Adrenally Fatigued Or Just Have Chronically High Cortisol? 20. August 2014
Von Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
We are literally living ourselves into oblivion by our modern-day lifestyle choices seeking to get more "stuff" packed into the hours of the day sacrificing sleep, relaxation, good nutritional habits, and exercise. And this intense stress doesn't come without a price on our bodies that leads us to feel run down, devoid of energy, and drained of any will to live. What the *BLEEP* is going on here? Leave it to a Board-Certified clinical Neurofeedback Specialist named Nora Gedgaudas to help sort fact from fiction on this critically important topic.

In RETHINKING FATIGUE, Nora teaches you why most "adrenal burnout" has nothing to do with the adrenals at all, why humans are designed physiologically to be relaxed 99.99% of the time, how cortisol and adrenaline are meant to help the other .001%, the way cortisol works within a good circadian rhythm, the mechanism by which your adrenal glands only do what they're told to do by your brain, how blood sugar surges from a high-carb diet is a biggie in this problem, why the jokes about "senior moments" aren't funny because it's commonplace from a crazy diet and lifestyle choices, the importance of chilling and eating a low-carb, high-fat diet, why letting go of things you can't control is vital to your health, how taking back control of your diet can reap so many health benefits, why proper melatonin cycles are important for maintaining a strong immune system, and the dangers of chronically elevated cortisol levels.

This book is PACKED with so much great information you probably haven't heard before along with heavy citations to scientific studies and references that will keep you busy for days on end looking up the information that backs up everything Nora has to share. GET...THIS...BOOK! It could change your life forever.
