Adrenal Fatigue is a state of persistent fatigue and feeling of low energy and mood marked by an afternoon “crash”, slow morning awakening, lower extremity swelling in the evening and possibly
even cravings for salty, high carb foods. It is a very common syndrome in the general population
that often goes dismissed and undiagnosed by the general medical community.
This bothersome syndrome significantly affects not only quality of life but can also contribute to the developmentof obesity, diabetes, and even irregular menstruation in women as well as sexual dysfunction in both men and women.
Our treatments utilize adaptogens, such as Ashwaganda and Rhodiola, as well as nutraceuticals and certain adrenal hormone intermediates and precursors, such as DHEA,
to restore proper cortisol balance. Our goal is to return your cortisol function to its natural physiologic pattern.
Fibromyalgia is a condition that involves fatigue and increased sensation of pain at various points in the body. Effective treatment for this condition is elusive and few options exist. There is much research being done on this disease of increasing prevalence. One of the areas of reasearch is cortisol function in fibromyalgia. It has been shown that patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia have hypocortisolism, an abnormally low level of cortisol that does not vary throughout the day as in normal people. Dr. Gizersky has been treating patients with fibromyalgia using some of the same methods as for adrenal fatigue and has had great results. By normalizing adrenal function and cortisol patterns, fibromyalgia symptoms improve and often completely resolve over several months. The nutraceutical and adaptogen treatments offered at Vitality Logix will target this imbalance and restore proper adrenal function leading to successful treatment of fibromyalgia.
Many people experience noticeable improvement after several days of therapy but it may take weeks to months to feel relief of symptoms. Cortisol balance is a lengthy process that may take up to 9 months to fully restore.
