Now for the Good News!
The "prescription" for treating adrenal fatigue is:
Eat a lot.
Sleep a lot.
Don't work too hard in between.
...And who doesn't want to follow those orders?!?!?!
I'm sure you realize that there are some qualifiers to those points, but essentially, that's what it boils down to.
I know you're probably thinking: "Who's got TIME to take it easy?? I've got kids, a job, a husband, I volunteer at church and at school, and work the concession stand at little league! When am I gonna do all that restin'???"
But you have GOT to reclaim some time to restore yourself. There are some things that you just can't eliminate, so you've got to prioritize and release some of those other things for a season. Give yourself permission to go to bed early, sleep in late, nap in the afternoon when you're tired, say no to being on another committee…
Depending on the degree of fatigue you are experiencing and your diligence in guarding your health, recovery can be expected to take anywhere from several months to more than a year. (Tell your spouse you can cut that time in half if you're allowed to do it in Tahiti…)
Your adrenal glands were drained over a long period of time, and it will take some time to build them back up again. The more you can rest, eat well, and reduce stress in your life, the faster you will be able to rebuild.
If Tahiti is out of the question, keep reading, and I will help you map out a plan for livable, healthy lifestyle changes to address adrenal fatigue.
Treatment plans are as individual as each one of us. When you're not feeling well, it's hard to do the research, it's hard to learn new patterns of living, and it's hard to figure out what you should and shouldn't eat.
Setting up a plan, with a daily schedule that all you have to do is follow, will make it easier for you to get started on the road to recovery, and will help you to remember all that you've learned. It will help you to organize your thoughts, and will be very helpful to have when you talk with your doctor about adrenal fatigue treatment options.
