Are tanning beds dangerous?

Q: Can tanning beds affect your adrenals? If so, how?


A: If your body overheats by staying in a tanning bed too long, temperature dysregulation is a common symptom of AFS. One tends to be cold at times more and unable to tolerate heat. A brief walk in the sun can trigger adrenal crash. The body’s internal thermostatic control mechanism is not well regulated. Trying to overcome this with thyroid medication usually fails. Focus on rebuilding the adrenals at its core usually is the best approach as temperature regulation normally improves greatly as adrenal health is optimized.
