Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal Fatigue

Let's talk about adrenal fatigue! 

 "Over 80% of us will experience adrenal fatigue multiple times over our lives. It’s an epidemic that most people have no idea exists." - Anthony Williams  

 Are you one of those people? 

 Adrenal Fatigue symptoms display as -  

weakness, lack of energy, trouble concentrating, becoming easily confused, forgetfulness, trouble completing basic tasks you once found easy, hoarse voice, poor digestion, constipation, depression, insomnia, not feeling rested after waking from sleep, and relying on naps to get through the day. 

 Some other common signs of adrenal fatigue include “crashing” mid-morning or mid-afternoon, feeling tired all day but more energetic in the evening, and feeling exhausted at night but not being able to fall asleep.  

 Fatigued adrenals can affect other glands and organs including the pancreas, heart, liver, brain, and central nervous system.  

 Try follow the below tips when it comes to diet and lifestyle -  

 * Intermittent fasting: ie only eating a solid meal from 12h00. Have the smoothie in the morning  

 * Get juicing: when you are stressed your digestive system takes effort to operate properly so give it a break without removing the nutrients by juicing  

 * Eat snacks like celery sticks and dates. These support the adrenal glands and calm them down  

 * Get your vitamin D levels checked: Vitamin D helps reduce cortisol (cortisol builds the dreaded belly fat)  

 * Include a Vitamin B Complex to help your energy levels and reduce fatigue  

 * Have an epsom salt bath once a week to reduce stress built up in the nervous system and muscles  

 * Ditch the cardio: Elevated cortisol levels will increase with cardio 

Rather turn to practices that focus on strength and training like pilates or yoga  

 * Breathe: Our breath is life and steady, slow, deep breathing helps the body regulate the stress response  

 * Start Meditating: Meditation has shown to reduce stress, control anxiety and encourage feelings of positivity  

 lAnd most importantly - ENJOY LIFE! You have been gifted with beautiful existence, don't waste your days on things that don't truly matter!
