Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue is a key piece to an overall healthy mind, body and spirit. I have put together some key pieces to the Adrenal puzzle below, I invite you to have a look!
First things first, Sleep! Get to bed before 10pm. The hormones are doing there thing around 10-2pm to reset you and leave you feeling well rested tomorrow, so give your body time to do this. Even resting in bed is better than being out and about at this time. Getting 5 hours of non stop sleep is a must for our Adrenal glands to function at there best.
Going to bed on an empty stomach really gives the body the opportunity to do what it requires; rebuild, restore and rejuvenate your cells. Otherwise its stuck with the huge task of digesting food.
Over eating is a huge reason for feeling sluggish in the morning. The best time to eat your high protein meal is mid day. At this time your stomach acid is at its’ peak. Just this step alone is a game changer. Keep your dinner meal plant based and on the lighter side. Perhaps enjoy a raw blended soup or salad with cultured veggies, heirloom purple potato or yams.
Next, drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water per day. Start the morning with a 32 ounce glass of water.
The Adrenals require salt, not just any salt but a high quality air dried pink salt nourishing your Adrenals with minerals. Try our Premier Pink Salt on the Sacred shop. Start out with 1/2-1 tsp in the morning.
Other key pieces to the Adrenal puzzle are things like Vitamin C, B Vitamins (especially if white flour or white sugar has been a staple in the diet) Amino Acids and Iron.
These are all key players. Amino Acids and Iron are crucial and if you are vegetarian or vegan make sure to have your levels checked to create the best quality health for your Adrenals.
These pieces of the puzzle should get you going and give you back your morning energy sustaining you through out your day.
One final note: If you experience alot of sweating this is a sign your body is excreting alot of Magnesium. Magnesium is a key mineral for your body overall. Make sure Magnesium supplementation is on your radar. I like Ancient Earth Minerals Magnesium Gel or Spray. And PRL makes a Magnesium Glycinate all available in the Sacred Shop!
Note: Do you know why pregnant women get morning sickness? It’s often due to the need for adrenal support!
