How has stress of this year affected your health and how can you heal from 2020?
The next 2 months are devoted to caring for your adrenal glands so you can recover from this stressful year and prevent autoimmune disease.
Adrenal Fatigue Questionnaire
Do you crave salty foods?
Do you crave sugar in the afternoon?
Do you feel energized later in the evening?
Do you wake up in the middle of the night?
Do you sometimes feel dizzy when standing up?
Do you have difficulty recovering after a busy day?
Do you have a hard time waking up in the morning?
Do you have trouble getting to sleep in the evening?
Do you have allergies that have recently gotten worse?
Have you recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder?
Have you ever embarked on a 'cleansing diet' and felt worse afterwards?
Are you thinking yes, yes, oh my goodness! - How did she know?
If you answered yes to the last question, I'm guessing your adrenal glands are burnt out, exhausted, Kaput! The good news is you can recover. After too much stress and not enough nourishment, the adrenal glands weaken and fail to do their simple jobs of waking you up in the morning and cleaning up mild allergies.
About Adrenal Fatigue
The adrenals are two little caps, located on top of the kidneys in the middle of your back. The adrenals can give you superhuman strength and fast thinking. With enough adrenaline, humans have been able to outrun predators and lift cars to save lives.
But, everything comes at a price – too much adrenaline is toxic to the heart and wears out the adrenal glands causing adrenal fatigue, heart disease and autoimmune disorders. Most people use adrenaline for unnecessary reasons - traffic, a disagreement at work or reading the news. Excess adrenaline provides a nice rush of energy but eventually it leaves you feeling wired, tired and unable to heal damage or prevent autoimmune disorders.
How to Heal the Adrenals
Adrenal Fatigue is not a medical diagnosis, it is weak adrenal function from too much stress. The adrenal glands are key to preventing autoimmune disease and an autoimmune disease is any disease in which the immune system gets confused and attacks the body . What if we could strengthen the adrenals and prevent autoimmune disease in the first place?
In the next 2 months I will investigate all the factors that contribute to adrenal fatigue and all the tools I use to help people recover from adrenal fatigue. We will look at lifestyle choices including sleep patterns, food choices and timing of meals; internal imbalances such as allergies, toxins and stress management. I will examine a variety of vitamins, minerals, medicinal herbs and glandulars that work to nourish and strengthen the adrenal glands.
I look forward to hearing from you in the next month. How has this information help you? Does it help you heal to understand what is going on in your adrenal glands?
