Adrenal fatigue isn’t an accepted medical diagnosis. It is a lay term applied to a collection of nonspecific symptoms, such as body aches, fatigue, nervousness, sleep disturbances and digestive problems.
Your adrenal glands produce a variety of hormones that are essential for life. The medical term “adrenal insufficiency” refers to inadequate production of one or more of these hormones as a result of an underlying disease or surgery.

Adrenal Imbalance Diagnosis and Acupuncture Treatment
Adrenal insufficiency can be diagnosed by blood tests and special stimulation tests that show inadequate levels of adrenal hormones.
Yet existing blood tests seem to be not sensitive enough to detect such a small decline in adrenal function — but your body is.
According to our clinical experience, patients with adrenal imbalance experienced psychological shock from one of the previously mentioned causes. We call adrenal glands shock absorbers. In order to balance adrenals’ function acupuncturist should release the remains of the shock memory stored in the memory cells.
During Japanese medical health diagnosis specific places on the body related to adrenals show pain elicited by light palpation. There are not only detection of adrenal imbalance body reveals to practitioner, yet also specific points on the body are needled to release the pain from adrenal reflex zones.
We should keep in mind that adrenals are located on the top of kidneys and are easily disturb the kidneys’ function. This is fist thought that comes to mind of experienced acupuncturist. The kidneys must be addressed first of all.
By delivering the information about adrenal imbalance, the systems and organs involved from the sites of needling to the brain through the nerve system – ‘landline communication’ – practitioner is able to balance the adrenal glands condition completely by repeating this therapeutic protocol. When adrenal imbalance is not chronic, only 3-5 acupuncture treatments are recommended to balance adrenals to feel healthy again.
Acupuncture helps you to balance your adrenals and get rid of adrenal fatigue with ho side effects. By balancing the organs and systems related to development adrenal imbalance, acupuncturist is able to preserve your health and happiness. The most important to know that mindset is the main cause of any health problem. The organs that are often involved in triggering adrenal imbalance are lungs, liver, spleen and kidneys. About the mind and mindset, I suggest you to read pages 19-53, and 61-69. How to keep lungs healthy you can learn by reading pages 70-78, liver on pages 83-93, spleen on pages 95-107, and how to protect health of your kidneys you can read on pages 108-122 in my book, Your MindBody Alliance & The Truth About Acupuncture.
Our clinical experience shows that people who are not educated in anatomy and physiology are not aware of how to preserve their health. The lack of knowledge and understanding how mind and body correlate leads people to feel out of control over their own health. Reading this book everyone becomes knowledgeable enough to withstand any body health problem and preserve one’s health.
