Life Doubles Stress for Women
Even though we all live hectic lives trying to provide everything for our families and do our best in order to advance in our careers, some of us work more than the others. Namely, most human families are still unable to cast away their patriarchal ways, leaving women with more work than men. Thereby, women work their regular jobs during the day, while still being in charge of the family's nutrition and the well-being of her children. Of course, this is not always the case. However, we will rarely see men changing baby diapers, dusting or doing the laundry in marriages. Rather, a woman is supposed to have all these aspects of a household covered, in combination with her day job. This causes plenty of stress and a constant feeling of need to fulfill tiring obligations. When we are in such a demanding state of affairs, adrenal glands above our kidneys put our body into a stress fighting mode which, if used too often causes constant fatigue and exhaustion. Thus, we should not live under constant stress, since this can have serious negative effects upon our body and mind.

Namely, once experiencing adrenal fatigue our concentration is impaired, we cannot sleep well or sufficiently and our immunity drops as well as our sex drive. Also, our body temperature is lowered, we tend to crave for salty and sweet food and can gain weight. Women may also experience numerous menstrual complications all caused by this tiresome states of mind provoked by the adrenalfatigue.
