In addition to stress, dietary habits with high consumption of coffee, white flour, sugar, alcohol and/or other stimulants can increase adrenal stress and dependency on stimulants to maintain energy levels.
Under these conditions, the adrenal glands are overworked and unable to produce adrenaline at stable levels. This can result in reduced cardio output, hypertension, heart attacks, and dehydration, which interfere with nutrient delivery and contribute to aging and kidney problems.
As adrenal glands frequently work at high activity, the adrenal cortex produces high levels of cortisol. Cortisol eats muscle. Since cortisol travels in the blood, the heart is the first-attacked muscle. As the heart is weakened, chances of heart attack increase.

An easy way to see if your adrenals are in balance is to purchase a blood-pressure “wrist cuff” so that you can monitor your own blood pressure. Start by lying down flat. Once on the ground, press the start button on the wrist cuff. In about 30 seconds you will see two separate numbers. For this test, we are only interested in the Systolic pressure (top number). After seeing the top number, stand up and within 10 seconds press the start button again while standing. Record the difference in Systolic pressure between lying down and standing up. Compare your results to the chart below. Ideally, the Systolic pressure should neither decrease nor increase by more than four points. (E.g. the blood pressures were 120/80 and 130/83 when lying down and standing up, respectively. Since the Systolic pressure increased by 10 points, the adrenals are hyperactive.) For this test, the pressure should go up. In those with weak adrenals, it often goes down and you may feel weak, shaky and/or a slightly dizzy.
+ 15 and over = Highly Hyperactive
+ 5 to + 14 = Hyperactive
0 to +/- 4 = Normal
- 5 to - 14 = Low Fatigue
- 15 and lower = High Fatigue
