Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
It’s important to remember that your adrenal glands are not the underlying cause. The best way to treat adrenal fatigue is to address the root cause, which is stress. We encourage you to think about your personal daily stressors, and take your health back into your own hands. If you suffer from adrenal fatigue, the most important thing you can do is to establish a routine. Below you can find some of our suggestions!
-Go to bed at the same time every night (preferably before 10 pm) and get 8 hours of sleep.
-Learn to say NO when you have reached your limit.
-Do something relaxing every day (warm bath, walk in the park, yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture, etc).
-Don’t over-exercise. If you’re fatigued after your workout, you might want to scale down.
-Eat a protein-rich breakfast before 10 am.
-Consume fruit with a source of protein (nuts or nut butters).
-Avoid alcohol, sugar, gluten and dairy (toxic and inflammatory foods).
-Consider supplementation (adaptogenic herbs, B vitamins).
-Adaptogenic herbs help the body adapt and cope with stress. This is a treatment to support the adrenal glands, as we work together to find the root cause of your adrenal fatigue.
The brand we use and sell at the office, by Ortho Molecular Products is Adapten-All. It contains a unique blend of nutrients, herbs and adaptogens.
Vitamin B Complex is ideal for adrenal support. All B vitamins are critical for the chemical processes within the adrenal glands.
For added adrenal support, you can also take magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin C.
