How to Heal the Adrenals

wrap close

In a “go-go-go” world, it is nearly impossible to give your body significant enough nourishment and rest to replenish your adrenals. People work hard all week, consuming far too much processed food and caffeine, and top off each day by staying up late and sacrificing their sleep. Weekends then roll in and people take it “easy” by going out for ill-prepared meals and taking in excess alcohol while staying up to the wee hours of the morning.
Adding insult to injury, we stress about our health, our finances, and our relationships 24-7, which taps our adrenals even further. This can escalate to anxiety and depression, which can take people to the point that they want to “tap out” of their life altogether. At this point, you are likely experiencing severe adrenal fatigue.

The good news is that you can heal your adrenals and get back your quality of life. Simply use these proven remedies and the winter season to get everything back on track so you can get your mood, energy, and body back to a more optimal state.
Signs of adrenal fatigue
Since adrenal fatigue is not commonly recognized by conventional doctors, and diagnostics are limited, it helps to understand the very common symptoms related to adrenal fatigue. If you find yourself saying “that’s me” to a few of the following signs, chances are you are experiencing adrenal failure:

  • Slow starter in the morning (before coffee)
  • Tend to be keyed up (trouble calming down)
  • Headache after exercising
  • Clench or grind teeth
  • Feeling wired or jittery after drinking coffee
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Clench or grind teeth
  • Become dizzy when standing up suddenly
  • Crave salty and/or sugary foods
  • Perspire easily
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Afternoon yawning
  • Shin splints
  • Tendency to need sunglasses
  • Allergies or hives
  • Low sex drive
  • Difficulty relaxing
  • Memory problems or feeling “spacey”
  • Weight gain, especially in abdomen and waist area
  • Early ageing
  • Constipation
  • Difficulty digesting foods

The more symptoms you resonate with in this list (or if some of them are quite severe) the more likely you are suffering from adrenal fatigue. If you don’t make any changes, you can count on more symptoms and the severity to increase.
