5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly informative and reader-friendly book. May 22 2002
This is an incredibly informative and reader-friendly book about a common debilitating medical condition that goes largely undiagnosed and untreated. ADRENAL FATIGUE: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome is a very empowering work cram-packed with vital information about a condition that very likely affects millions of people. Author Dr. James L. Wilson gives us both the bad news and the good news about this situation. The bad news is how this illness is devastating so many lives, how so many people are being left without hope, and why traditional (allopathic) medicine has failed to recognize or remedy this tragedy. The good news is that this condition can be diagnosed, can be treated, and that there is hope. And Wilson ought to know. With 3 doctorate and two master´¿s degrees all from different disciplines (including Human Nutrition, Naturopathic Medicine, and Bio/Nutrition), Wilson lectures extensively to physicians and is an internationally acknowledged expert on alternative, holistic approaches to health. Supporting Wilson´¿s claims about adrenal fatigue are his 25 years of clinical practice and a depth and breadth of research based on over 2400 scientific references. But don´¿t be daunted by the academic and scientific pedigree of the author; this book is a very easy read´¿deceptively so for the quality and import of the material.
The book opens with an overview of the function of the adrenals, and how they are prone to chronic fatigue given our hyper-stressed contemporary lifestyles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re: Dr. James Wilson's "Adrenal Fatigue" book Nov. 3 2004
By Kathy
After reading this book through almost twice...a rare thing for me to do, unless the book contains a wealth of useful information applicable to my own life, I believe Dr.Wilson has identified a very real syndrome in our society. More of us need to read this book, & realize that the awful heaviness, the feeling of plodding through quicksand for most of the day, the supreme effort it takes just to keep going short the fatigue we are feeling isn't just "laziness", or "all in our heads". I was also impressed with the fact that Dr. Wilson gives you the names & amounts of supplemental nutrients to try taking, in order to support your adrenal glands. He lets you know that you can also buy them via his website, but he leaves the choice up to you. After having the book for just 2 weeks, [on loan from the local library], I have heard from 5 people who want to know where I got it ,& how they can get a copy, as they realize something is wrong in their exhausted lives. I know of many more who would benefit from it,& I intend to let them know. The small detail of adding more salt to my diet has already made a big difference in how I feel. Thank you Dr. Wilson, for your extensive research into a subject that many are pooh-poohing as not REAL. I'm not crazy, lazy, or depressed...I have adrenal fatigue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! Nov. 17 2008
I recently received this book, and simply cannot express how very life-altering it has been. People rating this book '1' may simply not be hypoadrenic. Period. Dr. Wilson is very clear early on that if the reader cannot relate to the book content, they should pass it along to someone who can. I experience 90% of the symptoms throughout the book, so if the diagnosis isn't for you, then the reader should continue looking elsewhere and not base a quality rating of the book on subjective opinion. (Not everyone with red spots has measles.) The advice in this book is sound and clear, and if it relates to the reader's experience, they would do well to heed the diagnosis.

I suspect I have been hydroadrenic since birth (hereditary maybe? or whatever), and after reading this book have realized many occurrences from my hyperactive childhood to my current mid-40s have finally fallen into place. I have suffered chronic exhaustion and lethargy for almost 20 years, along with a host of other symptoms, yet a host of medical tests revealed nothing. I switched to organic foods last year, and while visiting my doctor for something else, mentioned that the organics seemed to give me more energy and that I seemed to be sensitive to chemicals. She asked a few more questions, delightedly agreed with me, and suggested that I had "21st Century Syndrome". I promptly looked it up, found this book, and have now made additional changes to my lifestyle that have significantly improved my quality of life in only these few short weeks.

The book is well-written and very clear. Dr. Wilson does offer supplements on his website (which I have not personally viewed, in fact), but does not even mention his products until well into the book, and exerts no pressure on the reader to purchase anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Overview of Stress & Burnout! Jan. 24 2011
This book caught my eye because I experienced a significant burnout in the fall of 2009 and I wanted to learn more about the physiological side of it. It addresses a common health issue that modern medicine and doctors don't accept, except in extreme cases. Wilson gives an estimate that up to 80% of adult Americans will suffer with adrenal fatigue in their lifetime, however it is extremely under-diagnosed. Your doc might just say you need more sleep, your too stressed or your depressed.

The adrenal glands are located on top of your kidneys at the bottom of your ribcage. They are considered the 'glands of stress' and allow your body to deal with stress, including physical, emotional, psychological, infectious and environmental. However, when you are under too much stress for too long a period of time, it weakens your adrenal glands. If you have a handful of the following symptoms you might suffer from adrenal fatigue:
o You have difficulty getting out of bed and are still tired
o You don't have energy or enjoyment with life or are mildly depressed
o You aren't as interested in sex
o It takes you a long time to recover from an injury or illness
o You get light headed when you stand up quickly
o You have increased PMS and probably chocolate cravings
o You get worse when you skip meals or you drive yourself with coffee, cola or snacks ' sweet or salty
o Your thoughts are fuzzy or your memory suffering
o You have decreased productivity and ability to handle stress

Wilson's book includes a comprehensive look at how to recover from adrenal fatigue naturally. It requires a lifestyle change not a medication. Nutrition is a big part of the recovery equation.
