What is adrenal gland treatment?

Adrenal gland treatment is a naturopathic medicine subspecialty that aims to restore adrenal gland function and improve your quality of life.

The adrenal glands are two small organs located above your kidneys. They release hormones, like cortisol and adrenaline, when you feel stressed or anxious. This is perfectly normal, but if you suffer from chronic stress or anxiety, it may cause your adrenal glands to work overtime.

If your adrenal glands are triggered multiple times daily, they can burn out and stop functioning properly. This increases your risk of more serious health problems and may affect your energy levels and mood.

When should I see a naturopathic doctor about adrenal gland treatment?

Make an appointment with Dr. Cavaiola at Best Naturopathic Medicine if you develop symptoms like:

  • Fatigue
  • Body aches
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Low blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness
  • Loss of body hair
  • Skin discoloration

These symptoms don’t necessarily mean you have adrenal fatigue, but undergoing an exam is essential. Whatever the cause, Dr. Cavaiola can identify the source and make personalized treatment recommendations.

What happens during an adrenal gland treatment visit?

Dr. Cavaiola reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms, including when they started and if they’re worse at certain times of the day, like when you first wake up in the morning.

Diagnosing adrenal fatigue is challenging because there isn’t a specific test for it. Dr. Cavaiola completes a physical exam and orders lab work, including blood tests and urinalysis. He uses blood tests to assess the levels of certain hormones, like cortisol and adrenaline.

If Dr. Cavaiola determines you have a hormone imbalance and other symptoms of adrenal fatigue, he moves forward with treatment.

What does adrenal gland treatment involve?

Dr. Cavaiola treats adrenal gland problems, like adrenal gland fatigue and adrenal insufficiency, using a holistic, integrative approach.

Although hormone imbalances typically require prescription medication, Dr. Cavaiola optimizes results through healthy lifestyle changes. He might suggest:

  • ● Eating a balanced diet that supports the adrenal glands
  • ● Exercising regularly
  • ● Taking nutritional supplements to improve adrenal gland function
  • ● Adaptogens (herbs that improve adrenal gland function)
  • ● Medications, like low dose hydrocortisone

Most people with adrenal gland problems benefit from two or more of these treatments. Dr. Cavaiola monitors your progress at routine checkups and adjusts your treatment plan as needed
