When I visited a naturopath concerning my acne, Depression and fatigue, AF was the go-to-diagnosis. Ever since that I sensed something fishy in the alt health world.
This "disease" is nothing more than a false explanation for an abundant amount of common symptoms. As OP points out, the symptoms of so called adrenal fatigue are near identical to malnutrition. Mislabelling the cause is sending many of you (at one point even me) down a pit you will have to eventually climb back out of. This thing is an illusion. You need to nourish your body with adequate, balanced supply of whole foods. Do not become an extremist-i-have-non-existent-disease-so-must-eliminate-sugar/fat/fruit/carbs/grains/dairy-because-health-guru-X-said-so.
It's a lie. A hoax. A herd mentality born out of common symptoms that almost EVERY human being either has or suffers from.
