Adrenal Fatigue Test

Edit: I recently released two free reports on the adrenal glands. The first one is an expansion on 30 Symptoms Of Adrenal Fatigue. There are now 50 symptoms in this free report. And, there is an article on what you can do to help your adrenal glands come to full health. This report is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. You can get both these reports and more free information on the adrenal fatigue at the link.

Here is a quick home test for adrenal fatigue. It isn’t one hundred percent by any means, but it is an indicator.

One adrenal fatigue symptom is sensitivity to light. The reason for this is because the pupil doesn’t constrict correctly when the adrenals are really low.

You can do this test by yourself or with a friend. I like the self test because you get to see the results which are immediate. The idea is to watch to see how fast or slowly the pupils constrict.

All you’ll need is a mirror and a small flash light.

Start by dimming the lights so that your eyes get a chance to dilate. Allow at least ten minutes or longer to make sure the pupils get as dilated as possible.

While looking at your eye in the mirror, shine the light in from the side so that you can watch the pupil, and so the light isn’t to hard on the eye. Watch to see how the pupil reacts.

The constriction should be immediate. If there is any hesitation at all, then you most likely have adrenal fatigue. Keep watching for a couple of minutes to see if the pupil holds the contraction, if it gets big again, then it is likely that the adrenals are weak.

As I mentioned earlier, this test isn’t 100 percent. A slow reaction could be a completely different issue. And, adrenal fatigue won’t always produce a slow reaction either.

Try correcting your diet and taking some of the herbs and supplements that are recommended in this article on nutrition for adrenal fatigue.

Meet the Author

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

    I will try this test – thanks!! Being out in bright light has started making me naseous, so I am guessing that my pupil will hesitate. Here’s another AF resource with more symptoms… It’s a health newsletter I just received from the Women to Women health site. Scroll about halfway down for a complete list of adrenal symptoms and a comparison with Addisons and Cushings.. Adrenal extremes — could you be on your way to Cushing’s or Addison’s disease?
