Adrenal fatigue is a deficiency in adrenal gland functioning that can result in debilitating symptoms ranging from lethargy to lowered sex drive to weight gain.

James Wilson draws on 24 years of clinical experience and research to help readers determine if they have adrenal fatigue and learn how to treat it. Beginning with a diagnostic questionnaire, he moves through the causes, symptoms, and treatment of the condition through lifestyle and dietary modification.

    Comments about Adrenal Fatigue:

    This book came highly recoommended from a holistic medical practitioner but I found the evidence base for the clinical management quite disappointing and lacking a strong research basis. Lots of anecdotes clinical cases and general lifestyle advice fail to provide a clear way of managing this condition

        Comments about Adrenal Fatigue:

        This book was very informative and a very practical guide for people wanting to take action to improve the condition of adrenal fatigue. Very helpful about other related health conditions. Covered every aspect from a very good self assessment, explanation and impact of the condition, and the ways in which people can make changes to assist themselves. My health has certainly improved since applying the principles and practical help.

          Comments about Adrenal Fatigue:

          My doctor suggested I read this book as everyday I am exhausted & struggle to make it to the evening. I have chronic pain as well so it was good to get a scientific understanding of how the adrenals work & how my pain impacts on them & everything else.
          The book answered a lot of my questions & gave me the courage to say 'NO' to others just a little bit more (that's a journey!).
          Life is NOT about getting through the day, enjoyment & vitality is so important. The catchphrase 'Thriving NOT surviving" sums this book up! I LOVE it ...

                Easy read - helps to assure one that they are not crazy when suffering debilitating fatigue. It is not in the head rather this book explains in easy to follow language the need for the suffer, friends and family to become educated in this area.

                  If you have, or think you have, Adrenal Fatigue - this is the book to read!
                  I've been diagnosed with it and my Dr told me to go and get myself the book and everything I need for my treatment will be in there! (Lazy? Maybe! Truthful? Yes!)
                  This book will be your go-to-guide to tell you signs and symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue, dietary changes to help recovery, herbal medication (and dosage) required plus ideas on how to reduce the stress in your life.

                      Comments about Adrenal Fatigue:

                      This book explains in detail Adrenal Fatigue and it's effects. It is extremely well written and covers causes, symptoms, diet, case studies, exercises, recommendations etc as well as a great biological explanation. Each chapter is valuable and it's a very comprehensive yet easy to read book on the subject, and the author is clearly an expert in this field who regularly provides references. There's a great quiz with thorough explanations and lots of suggestions on how to make improvements to address adrenal fatigue. After reading this book, I am more confident about speaking to my doctor about specific blood tests and able to understand how the body works in regards to the adrenals, cortisol and how stress really impacts the body and mind. HIGHLY recommend it! The diet/food section is amazing and I have learnt so much.
