After my divorce, I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and my doc. wanted to put me on meds. I was in pretty poor shape so you can imagine that the advice had some appeal. However, I had enough wherewithal to remember that nature always has s solution and more often than not one that I am willing to try.
Adrenal fatigue isn’t fun and since I had lived with anxiety for most of my life I knew that I needed to take this seriously as my body was experiencing compounding interest of the variety that I didn’t care for.
In case you are wondering if you have it, most of us do, here are some of the symptoms….confusion, forgetfulness, trouble completing basic tasks, hoarse voice, poor digestion, constipation, depression, insomnia, not feeling rested after waking from sleep, and relying on naps during the day. Like me, I know you don’t want to live with even a single one of these symptoms, correct?
The best way to support your adrenals and heal is to eat a light, balanced meal every 90 minutes to two hours. This technique is called grazing. The frequent meals keep your blood sugar steady throughout the day, which means that your glucose isn’t dropping and your adrenals don’t have to come in to save the day. They can then rest and focus on healing and restoring. Amazing, right?
It’s ideal for each of your meals to contain a balance of potassium, sodium, and sugar from fruit. My ultimate snack for maximum uplift that follows this formula is the celery, apple, date combo. It is also super easy to pull this combo together, pack it, and eat on the go. I usually eat a couple sticks, half of an apple and a couple dates as my late afternoon snack. It gets me through until dinner, tastes great, and is easy on the budget.
