In today’s world of stress, adrenal fatigue (medically known as hypoadrenia) is a common problem found among youngsters. This disease is associated with constant and overwhelming stress. People often complain of being tired, feeling exhausted both physically and emotionally.
Here is the list of remedies to cure hypoadrenia are as follows:
Rid the diet of excess sugar and processed grains:
Eating excess sugar will cause blood sugar to spike and insulin due to excess glucose in the bloodstream. When you are suffering from fatigue, cortisol levels drop and it makes difficult to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Low blood sugar is another stressful situation that can tax on your adrenal glands.
Sleep More, Even if you don’t feel tired, try to turn off all electronic items like mobile, laptops and television. Close your eyes in a dark room before 10 pm. Even if you don’t fall or stay asleep, you are lowering your stress and anxiety levels and retraining your body to sleep when it should be sleeping.
Dehydration is a symptom of hypoadrenia. Take a multi trace mineral supplement where you can absorb more water into your cells. You can even add a fresh lemon juice or Himalayan sea salt to the water.
Relaxation: Dedicate specific time to yourself is a positive step for fatigue. Book weekly massage or set a weekly time to take part in a hobby that you find relax.
Breathing: Certain breathing exercises are helpful in coping up with stress. Exercise reduces the sensation of stress and cortisol levels. Lie down and place one hand on your chest and one on your belly and feel where you are breathing into. If you are breathing predominately into the upper chest, then you may be exacerbating your tension. Practice abdominal breathing, then slow down your breath.
Exercise: Practice Yoga, Thai Chi and Qigong that are excellent forms of exercise. They help the body to maintain equilibrium. Take rest after 20 minutes of exercise, stretch later and focus on correct breathing techniques throughout.
Cool Inflammation and Replace Important Nutrients: Use omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin C and curcumin supplements. These supplements will lower inflammation levels by allowing adrenals to recover. High doses of vitamin C are also essential for hormonal cascade and strengthens glandular function. Vitamin D, magnesium, zinc and selenium are all important for adrenal and thyroid function.
B Vitamins: Particularly B5 and B6 vitamins are good for adrenals. B vitamins are low in high fat and low carb diet. Folate and B12 helps in the production of energy. It also reduces headaches, maintains the whole nervous system and builds stress tolerance.
