Adrenal Fatigue: 'Just a Myth'?

I know many MDs who have dismissed this as a diagnosis, but I can say that I see Adrenal Fatigue in my practice at least once per week. And patients feel better when you treat it. This article describes the condition being coined in 2001 by Dr. Wilson, but it was a functional diagnosis that was made for decades prior to Dr.Wilson's work. There are multiple ways of checking for and safely treating adrenal fatigue. This is a naturopathic medical forte and our area of expertise. ~~Dr.Karen
Take a look at this medical doctor approach of finally recognizing this condition:
