If you can recognize several of these signs and symptoms of stress, then you may be at a greater risk of developing adrenal fatigue, which can play a huge role in your Candida yeast infection recovery (or lack thereof).Adrenal fatigue is commonly found in those who have been suffering from a yeast infection for some time. It is a frequently overlooked syndrome, and once it has been recognized and properly treated will fast track your recovery from a yeast infection.
Here is a list of those who are most at risk of developing adrenal fatigue, see if you are in this group and if you are, can you relate to the conditions I just mentioned?
- People who are highly ambitious or competitive with themselves and others, all work and little play.
