Oh boy! This was a huge one for me! I suffered from major adrenal fatigue for many years and still am on supplements to support this! With my busy schedule, chronic pain and a ton of responsibilities it’s no wonder my adrenals get weak.
I’ve learned a lot since I got healthy and literally woke up and decided to live my best life. Between eating well, exercise, mindfulness, activities that bring me joy, the right supplements and oils and getting enough sleep I have found what works best for me.
If your adrenals may be in need of support if you have general fatigue, body aches, head tension, low blood pressure, and just generally feeling run down and overtaxed. Feeling tired even after a good nights sleep!
The Adrenal Glands produce hormones that support our metabolism, regulate blood pressure, and respond to stress. Our adrenal medulla produces a hormone called adrenaline and cortisol (our fight or flight response). This is a much-needed hormone for extremely stressful situations.
This can lead to:
❌ Feeling tired all-day
❌ Staying awake all night
❌ Craving junk food
❌ Poor sleep quality
What can we do to support our overtaxed Adrenal Glands?
🐟 Eat fatty fish high in magnesium
🥑 Eat avocados, dark leafy greens, and legumes (all of which are high in magnesium)
☕ (This may be painful for some) Lower your caffeine intake
🛀 Take an Epsom Salt bath (with Essential Oils)
💧 Meditate and relax (use your oils to support this!)
What oils do you use to support your body when you are stressed? My faves are trees like Douglas fir, Siberian fir, Frankincense and all the florals. Rose is one of my most used oils for stress and keeping me calm.
By the way, adrenal fatigue doesn’t just go away with a few good nights sleep… it often takes quite a bit of time and healing for your adrenals to bounce back. Be patient and stay consistent!
