Adrenal Fatigue and my observations

One of my observations during my travels of observing blood and not just in this country but globally, is adrenal fatigue. Adrenal Fatigue is extremely common and estimated by some experts to affect approximately 80 percent of the population to some degree, which is very close to the unscientific figures I have observed while viewing blood. Adrenal fatigue is caused by all types of stress, it eventually develop into systemic stress, from emotional to physical and if left unchecked, it will most likely lead to most other illnesses.Below are some examples of symptoms caused by a lifestyle of constant aggravation of the adrenals. They are surprisingly numerous and varied to most people because of lack of education in this field by the medical model.

Anxiety
Panic attacks
Diarrhea
Frequent urination
Thyroid issues
Salt cravings
Sugar cravings
Insomnia
Waking tired
Needing caffeine to 'get going' in the morning
Feeling stressed
Inability to handle stress
Overthinking (having a brain that won't turn off)
Dizziness when rising from seated or lying position
Fluid retention in feet and ankles
Low blood pressure

Wow, I bet you didn't realize that what you have been feeling Could of have been symptoms of AF. Look, the body knows exactly what to do with the correct support it gets from you, unfortunately it's not getting enough or none at all. Here are some support and lifestyle ideas that are known to work.

Drastically reduce stimulants, the reason I say reduce and not eliminate is because unless you are allergic to these stimulant, an occasional use will not stress the Adrenals to the point of being the contributor to adrenal fatigue.

Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and drugs cause a stress response in the body if used chronically.

Practice meditation

Meditating and prayer daily can help reduce stress. Get familiar with healthy looking organs, cells, lymph systems, immune cells, all delivering oxygen and health through out your body. Visualization of your daily stressors and dealing with them while meditating will change the perception of how your cells view your world.

It's not what you eat it's what you digest and absorb.

Your body has a hard time digesting a highly processed diet the out come is systemic stress. Most people just think that stress only happens at work or at home, but undigested foods in the system also cause the body tremendous stress. To better understand this, ask yourself what Processed food is. Mostly chemicals and chemicals have no place in the body. Here are some examples : preservatives, colors, stabilizers and more. These chemicals can have negative effects on the various systems of the body, think of your air and water filter in the your home, when chemicals and other toxic substances clog those filters they stop working, our organs that detoxify and cleanse our bodies also can get sluggish and stop working.

Adapting to adaptogens

There are a number of adaptogens that are useful for the adrenal glands.These herbs can be taken in the form of teas, tinctures, powders or capsules and include:

Rhodalia
Ashwaganda
Tulsi, or Holy basil
Korean Ginseng
He Shou Wu
Licorice (Note: Licorice can raise blood pressure)

Snooze or you loose:

Sleep is important that's when our bodies and brains rejuvenate and heal. Going to bed and getting up on a regular schedule is important. Every hour of sleep before midnight is also very beneficial. Take some me time to chill out and do things that bring you pleasure.

Eat more salt:

Adrenal glands love salt. Not the commercial stuff but get a good quality, unprocessed salt, like Himalayan salt, and use it liberally. A great way to start your mornings off and after exercise, it's the perfect source of building g electrolytes.
