If you’re experiencing weight gain, abdominal obesity, or general tiredness, you may have adrenal fatigue.

The main function of your adrenal glands — walnut-shaped organs just above your kidneys — is to generate and regulate your stress hormone, called cortisol. Other vital hormones produced by your adrenal glands are estrogen and progesterone, adrenaline, dopamine, and norepinephrine. Together, these hormones are responsible for your metabolism and blood pressure and send critical information to your reproductive system, brain, and kidneys.
Adrenal fatigue occurs when your adrenal glands are overworked and stressed and function insufficiently. Your adrenals release cortisol when you feel stress. When stress is repetitive or chronic, your adrenals grow tired, and adrenal fatigue sets in.
Signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue are:
Other problems associated with adrenal fatigue include low sex drive, recurrent illnesses, and brain fog.
Dr. Rastrygina customizes treatment according to the severity of your adrenal insufficiency. She meets with you in order to understand your symptoms, health history, and lifestyle. Then she develops a plan to restore and balance your energy using acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, aromatherapy, sound therapy, and other life-giving holistic modalities.
When your adrenals aren’t producing hormones properly, your entire body senses the slowdown and triggers a number of disruptive problems. Acupuncture helps boost hormone production and optimize your body’s functions. The adequate release of normal chemicals and hormones causes your body to restore its routine functions and heal itself.
Everyone is different, so your treatment plan will reflect the degree of insufficiency you’re experiencing. In general, most men and women see results after one or two sessions. You’ll maximize your outcome with several appointments spread over a few weeks. Dr. Rastrygina will write a plan that addresses your needs, goals, and budget.
