The Adrenals and the hormone cortisol can influence, sleep, thyroid function, blood sugar blood pressure and weight loss.

OVER ACTIVE: Too open to all inputs and therefore not being able to control the contents of the mind. Engaging in irritability, anger, frustration, impatience, overly demanding and too controlling.
UNDER ACTIVE: On a psychological level when the Adrenals are exhausted, “running on empty“. Too much stress and over-responsibility, can no longer “carry the load.” Drained of life force. Suffering from overload, threats to well-being, fear, anxiety and stress to the point where one can no longer care for themselves. Blood Pressure will be low.
