Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms? - 4 Tips for Healthy Adrenals

Adrenal Fatigue Symptoms? - 4 Tips for Healthy Adrenals />
I always remember the beginning of the book, The Road Less Travelled, by Dr Scott Peck that starts with … Life is hard!  Wow, what a revelation I thought.  This might not sound like the most optimistic way to start reading but I like this concept that once we face up to our challenges, we now have the opportunity to overcome them.
The problem is we may feel challenged, exhausted, stressed to the max, not eating properly, eating way too much fast food, not sleeping well and basically not taking care of ourselves but the demand to parent, pay bills, take care after others and basically adult doesn’t stop just because we want it to.  

Bring on adrenal fatigue.

The symptoms of adrenal fatigue besides feeling exhausted all the time are difficulties dealing with tension and stress, low energy and motivation, weaker immune systems as well as craving salt and stimulants such as caffeine.  

The good news is when you seek help from holistic health care providers who recognise people suffering with adrenal fatigue symptoms they can help you get back on the road to great health.

  1. Eat well - nutrient dense foods again

The best diet for adrenal fatigue is nutrient dense food. Eating a natural, balanced diet is probably one of the most important things you can do for yourself.  Your whole way of life is affected by your health and that’s why eating nutrient dense foods, staying away from processed and packaged foods and eating natural should always be high on the priority list.

Organic foods are more and more in demand because they are free from artificial fertilizers and pesticides which means you body isn’t ingesting nasty chemicals and pollutants which is a no no for everyone, but even more so if you’re suffering ill-health.  Grow your own beautiful nutrient dense foods or visit your local organic growers today.  At Natural Family Health Clinic we are holistic health and wellbeing providers so if you’re unsure what’s best, just ask us.

2. Breathe - Time to Take a Deep Breath

Life doesn’t just stop when we’re fatigued and natural remedies for adrenal fatigue even includes something as easy as breathing properly.  Just by having an awareness of using full lung function is life itself.  Once you practice conscious breathing which means you are taking a full inhale in whilst the diaphragm moves and expands you are then about to let it all go on the exhale and your diaphragm empties and releases any stress and tension. Pressures of everyday life are actually restricting our breathing which restricts our energy and brain function so take time out, get outside and make the most of the fresh air and breathe deep.  

Yoga is another wonderful source of energy and relaxation so don’t be afraid to give it a go.

3. Super Supplements

Super supplements with vitamins B, C and minerals like magnesium help treat adrenal fatigue but watch out, you only want to take good quality ones that aren’t full of magnesium oxide. Unfortunately if you’ve been suffering with stress, this depletes the body of essential nutrients which means your body isn’t getting enough of the good stuff. Natural treatments for adrenal fatigue includes a natural, healthy diet boosted by quality super supplements.

4. Mindfulness and Self-Love

We spend so much time beating ourselves up and sending ourselves negative messages please don’t wait for New Year’s to make healthier resolutions. We’re all doing the best we can.  We all get it wrong sometimes. Most importantly celebrate all the good things, even the smallest joys, remember to smile and let yourself be happy.  Most importantly tell yourself you are ENOUGH.  Bring back your sense of harmony and balance back to your life and follow our 4 top tips.
