Adrenal Issues, Energy and Gut Issues

This past few months have been hard. I wish I could tell you that I have been soaring like a champion through this time but I would be lying. I have been brought to my knees so many times and I am beyond grateful.

I realized how busy I let myself get…

I was not taking care of myself in the ways that are essential for my life. I made excuses. I have always been a do-er. I have always been a go-go gadget type of girl. People always say things like, “Wow you have so much energy”.

Having energy is different than being busy. People like me can get into trouble because we can go and go and we don’t stop. I don’t have a stop switch. For years I would say to myself, “WTF! Why do you have bags under your eyes?”

I just thought it was genetic because my mom was that way. As I got older and experienced some health issues [gut issues, sleep, depression, hair falling out, hormone, sex drive, energy], I started researching and found information by leaders like Aviva Jill Romm, Dr. Wilson and Dr. Lam.

Let’s talk the basics of adrenal health:

When confronting a difficult and debilitating conditions as adrenal fate, you can end up being faced with some very hard choices, but staying informed may help you to take control of the disorder, and return you to a place that is very close to your previous standard of living. Information can be difficult to weed through, so this information should help you understand how to better manage this condition. 

What Is Adrenal Fatigue 

The human body relies on numerous types of chemicals and hormones that control dozens of systems related to your organs. Adrenal fatigue is a term for anytime that the body doesn’t produce enough hormones to keep itself functioning at a normal level of operation. This can be caused by a wide range of disorders, diseases, and combinations of the like, but many of the ways that they are dealt with are connected. There are some tests that can detect the specific deficiencies, and these tests are typically carried out by professional doctors that specialize in those specific types of study. 

Symptoms

Some of the ways that you can be alerted to the possibility of adrenal fatigue are if you are experiencing continuous tiredness, lack of sleep or sudden changes in sleep patterns, diet and weight loss. Your mood is highly susceptible to the presence of important hormones, so it’s possible that the adrenal fatigue could simply be a symptom of a much larger issue. This makes adrenal fatigue a very difficult illness to diagnose, and it may require you to seek council of more than one health professional to make sure that all options are being considered. This is important because if the treatment is incorrect, then another illness may progress due to being treated incorrectly. 

What You Can Do

Take note of all of your habits, and dietary choices. This will allow you to discover if there are any obvious factors that are changing your health for the worst. Be sure to start out simple and slowly add things back into your routine. Doing so helps to guarantee that you have a definite record of exactly when you started to feel sick again. You can take supplements aimed at restoring balance to specific systems like probiotics that are meant to help you to have a higher percentage of good bacteria in your gut. That will help you to fight symptoms that cause problems in other parts of your body.

I encourage you to love up your adrenals and work with a professional or book books from the names above. I had to tweak my intermittent fasting schedule.

I had to increase my B12, B Vitamins, Adrenal Supplements, and address hormonal imbalances such as low progesterone levels.
