If you are a person with adrenal exhaustion, stimulants containing caffeine like coffee, tea, or chocolate are the last thing you need to add insult to injury! Unfortunately though, adrenal fatigue is so commonplace that to start your day without a cup of coffee would be out of the ordinary. We are so burned out, over worked and chronically fatigued that the use of stimulants to keep us going at our crazy pace is just, well, normal! It is a vicious cycle though, because even though these common stimulants give us more energy, it is only temporary and does not solve the problem. In fact, coffee wears down the adrenal glands even more making the adrenal fatigue worse! Thank goodness I never became addicted to drinking coffee, or else I would be in much worse shape than I am now.
