Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the causes of adrenal fatigue and how can I remedy it?

Cause #1: Chronic stress

Chronic stress can cause your adrenal glands to work without rest at producing stress hormones (like cortisol). Over time, chronic stress causes adrenal glands to burn out and not function properly. Therefore, your body can’t handle stress effectively anymore because your cells become resistant to stress hormones being overproduced.


  • Get more sleep (take naps if needed)

  • Take long walks outside daily (at least 45 minutes)

  • Consume vitamin D

  • Consume natural vitamin C complex (not ascorbic acid)

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet and intermittent fasting

  • Do more things you enjoy

  • Avoid things that cause stress

  • Exercise regularly (don’t overtrain)

  • Can do ozone therapy

  • Consume potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium

  • You can also take my Adrenal & Cortisol Support

  • You can also take my Adrenal Stress Advanced Formula

Cause #2: Low vitamin B1

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) is vital for normal functioning of the nervous system and for regulating stress levels in the body. Low vitamin B1 can reduce your ability to handle physical and mental stress. If you are deficient in B1 your adrenal glands can eventually wear out, resulting in the adrenal fatigue symptoms mentioned above.


  • Take vitamin B1

  • nutritional yeast

  • benfotiamine

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Avoid drinking too much coffee or tea

  • Avoid diuretics and antibiotics

Other causes:

  • Too many carbs in the diet

  • No exercise

  • Too much caffeine

  • Lack of salt (take sea salt)

  • Sudden shock (surgery, loss of loved one, accident)

  • Chronic pain in the body part (do acupressure)

  • Chronic infection (improve immune strength)

  • Taking prednisone for a long time (stress medication)
