Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?
Do you find yourself constantly asking
"Why am I so tired all the time?"
And we're not just talking about. a tired, but TIRED...
ALL THE TIME...
In addition, do you have other distinguishing symptoms of
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome?
- You find it hard to think clearly, and you feel like you spend your days slogging thru a vat of waist-deep oatmeal, it just takes way more effort than it should for you to accomplish anything.
- Despite feeling tired, you also feel edgy, and your emotions are fragile. You get jittery, jumpy, short-tempered, and often get accused of over-reacting, or blowing things out of proportion. You are emotionally strung-out and unable to cope with conflict and confrontation. Little things upset you more than they should.
- You startle easily. Something as simple as the phone ringing sends you shooting out of your chair like the house is on fire, heart pounding wildly, and it takes you several minutes to recover and calm down.
- When confronted with stress of any degree, your heart begins to race, your head begins to swim, and you feel as if you are going to have a panic attack. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground, you are either dead-dog-tired or on "high alert". You wonder if this is what it feels like to have a nervous breakdown.
- You have developed new allergies, or are having more severe allergic reactions than usual. Possibly even serious anaphylactic reactions.
- You crave sugars, or juices, or breads, cookies, cakes, or other simple carbohydrates that will quickly convert to sugar in your system. Or, you HAVE to have your caffeine to get going in the morning
and to keep going in the afternoon
- You don't sleep well overnight. You are tired, but can't get to sleep, or stay asleep. Your best sleep comes in the morning, between 6 and 9am. You hit a slump in the late afternoon, but a nap doesn't seem to help much. You can't wait for bedtime, but by 9pm you've found a second wind, and don't have a problem staying up past midnight doing the things you couldn't get done during the day because you were too weary.
- You have low blood pressure, low blood sugar, low thyroid, low libido
Sound familiar? You've come to the right place.
What will you find here
Adrenal Fatigue Recovery?
- We'll talk about the symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and look at why each one occurs. We'll discuss the connection between adrenal gland fatigue and hormone imbalance -how all our hormones are interconnected and work together-so that we can sort out which symptoms are caused by which hormone deficiencies.
- I will share with you the summary of all my research on Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome and its connection to hypothyroidism, hypoglycemia, belly fat, autoimmune disorders, and allergy conditions.
- Well look at some of the causes of adrenal fatigue. How did you get here? What are the environmental factors that tax your adrenal system? How can you better deal with stress in your life? What are you eating thats doing more harm than good?
- I will outline the key components of a healthy lifestyle, one that supports your adrenal system instead of draining it. An awareness of your new goal of healthy living and lifestyle changes that support that goal will make a huge difference in reducing the demands placed on your adrenal system.
- I will share reviews and recommendations for books and products that I have tried and found success with in treating adrenal fatigue in my own life. I will help you map out a personalized plan for recovery that includes supplements, diet changes, and identifying the causes of stress in your life to reverse the effects of stress on your adrenal glands.
But one of the most important things I want to tell you is how important it is for you to educate yourself, and not rely solely on a "professional" to tell you what is wrong with yourself and what to do for it. For some reason, many doctors today do not consider mild symptoms of hypoadrenia to be a valid condition.
Much like 20 years ago when PMS was "all in your head", they discount the collection of symptoms you have, and will tell you that if you don't have Addison's Disease (the extreme end of hypoadrenia), your adrenals are fine. Do NOT let your doctor blow you off as being a hypochondriac who thinks she has the latest "fad" disease! Run, don't walk, to find a doctor who will work with you instead of scoffing at your participation in your own health treatment.
The good news is, Adrenal fatigue is largely a condition that can be reversed by becoming more aware of the things that stress your adrenals, and making choices that will support and rebuild your adrenal glands. Some changes in your diet, deliberate choices to take control of your life, your health, and your relationships will go a long way towards bolstering your exhausted adrenals.
As adults, we tend to take care of everyone and everything...except ourselves. We don't have time to be sick, so we just ignore our body's signals and keep going until we run ourselves into the ground. Don't be a martyr! Take some time to take care of yourself and you will be much more effective at everything else you do.
