Compounding Opportunities for the Treatment of Adrenal Fatigue
Chronic stress is a prevailing concern in modern society. Although well recognized as an evolutionary adaptive system, prolonged activation of the stress response is associated with widespread disruptions in homeostatic processes that, over time, can culminate in devastating health consequences. In this webinar, participants will become well rehearsed on the maladaptive features of the stress response and the pivotal role the adrenal glands play in mediating this physiological system. This will be highlighted by examining the spectrum of adrenal dysfunctions, with particular emphasis placed on the contentious syndrome, adrenal fatigue.
Despite its prevalence and well-recognized signs and symptoms, adrenal fatigue remains a highly contested condition within the medical community, leaving millions untreated. In this activity, participants will recognize adrenal fatigue as a real phenomenon and, in doing so, understand the importance of maintaining proper adrenal function through appropriate therapeutic interventions when applicable (i.e., lifestyle changes, dietary supplements, and hormonal restoration). Upon reviewing the complexity and individuality of adrenal fatigue pathophysiology, as well as current concerns with commercial remedies and the quality of over-the-counter preparations, the niche opportunity for customized compounding solutions will be discussed.
