Adrenal fatigue, where the exhaustion of the adrenal glands leads to a set of symptoms related with inadequate levels of adrenal hormone, is the basis for a variety of health problems in people after the age of 40. Some of these problems may include low thyroid function, low immune function, improper blood sugar regulation, and fatigue.

Dr. Fratkin, with over 30 years of TCM clinical and teaching experience, delves into detail on adrenal fatigue and thyroid dysfunction as it relates to TCM; namely, the exhaustion of mingmen fire, and how it affects the production and distribution of qi, blood, yin, and yang. Causes of adrenal fatigue, its consequences on the endocrine system in both western and oriental medicine terms, as well as various TCM approaches to diagnosis and differentiation are discussed.
