Are you suffering from adrenal stress?

Do you have any of the following?

  • Fatigue and weakness, especially in the morning or afternoon

  • Poor memory

  • Hormonal imbalance

  • Sweating for no reason

  • Craving for foods high in salt, sugar or fat

  • Increased allergies

  • Increased PMS or menopausal symptoms

  • Trouble waking in the morning – despite a good sleep

What causes the adrenal glands to work less effectively?

  • High stress

  • Chronic inflammation, pain, allergies, infection

  • Sleep deprivation

  • Light- cycle disruption (caused by working the night shift or going to bed late)

  • Poor food choices and nutritional deficiencies

  • Excessive exercise

  • Constant emotional stress – fear, anger, anxiety, guilt depression etc

Why should I have a consultation for this? Can’t I just take a supplement?

Taking a supplement will help, however there may be other factors involved which need to be addressed to help reduce your symptoms and start to rebuild your adrenal glands. Our body is complex and unique. A naturopath is trained to get to the cause of health issues and resolve them together with you. This usually includes addressing lifestyle, diet and exercise regime as well as supplementation.

Things to eat and do that will help increase serotonin and relieve stress:

  • Start the day with a green smoothie for an energy boost!

  • Eat more leafy green vegetables

  • Eat banana to boost serotonin

  • Eat walnuts – for omega 3 and brain health

  • Eat almonds for magnesium and brain

  • Eat oats to ease depression

  • Have a calming Epsom salts bath

  • Drink water!!! More energy – less stress

  • Spend time in nature

  • Walk…. Clears the mind and boosts serotonin

  • Smile to release happy hormones
