We live in an age of where chronic stress is fast becoming the major contributor fatigue, brain fog, ailments and pain in the body and weight gain… and in many cases… under-weight issues.
It is estimated that up to 90% of visits to a doctor involves stress. Stress about our relationships… our family… our children… and our health. And throw in workplace and environmental stress and you have a toxic minefield.
But the most important thing that no one is telling you is that fatigue and lack of focus may very well be adrenal fatigue. Largely the result of mental, physical and emotional stress… along with poor nutrition and lifestyle… adrenal fatigue is fast becoming an invisible epidemic.
And with our modern busy lives, it often feels like its never-ending battle, trying to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle.
Nutrient deficiencies are real! Many of us have low levels of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin E and low levels of the B vitamins, especially vitamin B12.
Some powerful supplements for stress-relief, anxiety and depression include; Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10), 5-HTP, Quercetin, L-Tryptophan, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Taurine, Glycine, L-Phenylalanine, Ashwagandha Extract, Bacopa Monnieri Extract, Valerian Root Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Hops Extract, Chamomile Extract, Melatonin, L-Theanine, Skullcap Extract.
I also want you to remember that stress is not just caused by external factors, but can also be self-induced due to our thought patterns like negative self-talk or perfectionism.
Stress can cause a myriad of symptoms in the body including feeling tired all the time, lack of energy, pain in the body (particularly the lower back), chronic fatigue, hormone imbalance, mood swings, hot flushes, aching joints, and the list goes on…
The way you think also has a tremendous impact on how you view and function in the world. It can impact your stress levels, your metabolism, your hormones, and even your heart health.
Your mind can get stuck in emotional ruts… negative habits and belief patterns of thinking that may have made sense at one time in your life but have now become outdated and lead to thoughts and actions that no longer support your well-being.
Signs of poor adrenal function may include the following:
- Regularly feeling overwhelmed
- Feeling tired despite adequate sleep
- Difficulty getting up in the morning most days
- Lack of energy and motivation
- Mental fog
- Less enjoyment in life
- Reduced ability in decision making
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Reduced productivity
- Poor memory
- Decreasing ability to handle stress
- Slowed healing
- Mild depression
- Alternating diarrhoea/constipation
- Low blood sugar
- Craving for salty foods (“I just ate a whole bag of chips syndrome”)
Do any of these sound familiar?
