Have you lead a busy lifestyle where you seem to be “on the go all the time?” Suddenly things seem to stress you out more than usual. Do you find yourself relying on lattes, wine, sugary or salty snacks? Then you are heading into adrenal fatigue town or “Burn out syndrome” Most people don’t know they are suffering with it until they hit a wall and are unable to complete daily tasks as they did yesterday or last week.
These are my top 5 hints to support your body from Adrenal Fatigue:
Rhodiola – A traditional Russian and Scandinavian herb that promotes vitality, stamina and helps support your body during stressful times. Can be taken to enhance memory, concentration and improve your immune system.
Adequate Sleep – So many of us live in a fast paced environment, that don’t have time to rest and recover from illnesses. Sleep is important for your immune system, your vitality, mood, and decision making.
Magnesium – A great magnesium supplement that can support energy production during times of increased stress is Bioceuticals Ultra Muscleze Energy. The co factors such as Chromium, B vitamins, and Zinc help to support healthy nervous system including mood balance and sleep. Foods that contain magnesium are almonds, green leafy vegetables, avocado and quinoa and cacoa.
Sugar - Are you a sugar addict? Sugar is found in an abundance of foods including, cakes, cookies, fruit juice, pasta sauces even flavoured salmon. It can produce erratic behavior by causing a rise and sudden drop in blood sugar. The adrenal glands and pancreas are told to release extra hormones - insulin and cortisol and over time can lead to unbalanced hormones. Eventually this can lead to exaustion, mood swings, and weight gain around waist.
Myotherapy /Remedial Massage is effective in reducing the symptoms of fatigue. A massage will allow your body to release natural endorphins, “feel good hormones” so you feel relaxed while your body is healing naturally.
