Why do I have to avoid dairy when I have adrenal fatigue?


Q: Why do I have to avoid dairy when I have adrenal fatigue?

A: The adrenal glands put out cortisol to help the body reduce inflammation. We want to reduce inflammation in the body, so allowing the adrenal glands to preserve its cortisol. Dairy products are undesirable because during the commercial process, pasteurization of diary makes the protein harder to digest. This in turn leads to more inflammation in the body. Therefore avoiding dairy does help to reduce inflammation in the body.
