How To Find Your Adrenal Glands, You Can Feel The Exhaustion

EDIT:

I’ve gotten a lot of comments about the anatomy of the adrenal glands. The area you are feeling has to do the the lymphatics of the adrenals. Not exactly feeling the adrenal glands themselves, but the direct affect they have on the body. The adrenals are located about four inches out rather than the one inch mentioned in the article.

The adrenal glands are responsible for our base line energy. They put out hormones that make us feel good and give us a lust for life. There are many possible consequences to adrenal fatigue, with different manifestations for different individuals.

Adrenal symptoms will usually include extreme fatigue, although you could feel hyper or jittery at times. Other conditions often develop as well: lower back pain, depression, panic attacks and IBS to name a few. Here are 30 symptoms of adrenal fatigue if you’d like to check that out.

The definitive test for adrenal fatigue is a saliva test for cortisol levels at different times of day, at least four. However, there is a simple test you can do on yourself or have a friend do on you.

It is possible for most people to find and feel the adrenal glands, especially when they are swollen from trying to keep up with undo demand which leads to adrenal exhaustion. If your adrenal glands are easy to find, then you probably have adrenal fatigue.

When you press into an adrenal gland that is swollen from exhaustion, you will feel a very uncomfortable feeling in the area. This is not just from pain, but also because of toxins that you press out of the gland when you press into it. As you will see on the video, this is a good thing.

You may find that one gland is more swollen and uncomfortable than the other. This is common, and actually could be a good sign since major adrenal fatigue usually is accompanied by two very swollen and tender adrenal glands.

To find the adrenal glands you start at the belly button. Then, move up one inch and to the right or left one inch. They are on both sides, and you need to find both of them to determine what’s happening with them.

Good adrenal hunting, and let me know how it works for you in the comments below.

Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
