Have you ever heard of the term “adrenal fatigue”? We commonly associate this term with the feelings of extreme fatigue, hormonal dysregulation, and other physical symptoms that can occur from chronic stress. Dr. Zandra Palma feels that this term is actually inaccurate but that we can look to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis for the cause of these discomforts.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with Dr. Palma all about the importance of the HPA axis and how if these systems experience dysfunction, it can affect every aspect of your health. More importantly, Dr. Palma discusses how to support your HPA axis, reduce stress, sleep better, and feel great. While HPA dysfunction affects many different systems and has a multitude of symptoms, even if you’re not affected, the first steps to recover and begin healing can benefit everyone. “Soft” interventions, like massage, meditation, sleep, rest, relaxation, and self-care can play a significant role in getting your stress under control and supporting your HPA axis.
