You might have Adrenal Fatigue
If you feel overstressed, overwhelmed, no energy or feel like you have more energy after 6pm than you do all day maybe your adrenals are fatigued. Your adrenals are your stress receptors and if you’re constantly under stress your adrenals get overworked and end up not knowing if it’s a true stress situation or if it’s regular daily stress. This causes them to work overtime and become drained.
Causes for adrenal fatigue are stress, overwhelm, too much responsibility and no time to unwind, slow down or relax.
Here are 5 things you can do to help your adrenals. You can feel better especially if you continue these healthy habits every day.
1 – Eat meals and healthy snacks throughout the day including breakfast even if you’re not hungry in the morning. You don’t need to eat a huge breakfast; a piece of fruit, Greek yogurt and a handful of nuts is healthy, light and quick.
2 – Caffeine, alcohol and sugary drinks and foods drain your adrenals.
Omit caffeine and if you feel that you can’t do that just yet at least limit it. You can cut back slowly by omitting one caffeinated drink a day and try not to have caffeine after 3pm.
Limit or omit alcohol and energy drinks.
4 – Foods that restore your adrenal function are ginseng, herbal teas like chamomile, valerian, passion flower, lemon balm, mint teas and vegetable juices like V-8 or organic or freshly blended homemade vegetable juice with pink Himalayan salt or table salt with iodine.
Additional therapies to boost your adrenal system is through supplements such as Ashwagandha, licorice root, extra B vitamins and more. You can find 7 specific supplements at
5 – In addition to eating and drinking properly it’s vital that you find ways to de-stress.
