Out of Gas – Beat – Spent – Fatigued – Tired – Done?

What can help?  Continue reading for 5 tips for regaining your energy.

Doctors tend to under-appreciate adrenal glands.  We are only taught about life threatening adrenal ailments in Medical School.  Adrenal glands are our primary gland that helps us deal with stress.  As far as I can tell, everyone has stress, at least here in the U.S.  That makes the adrenal glands probably the most important gland to address when someone complains of feeling “out of gas”, says “I’m spent”, “I’m beat” or complains of feeling tired or fatigued.  It should be the first place/gland that a doctor looks to (short of there being another obvious problem).  Everyone has adrenal glands.  And everyone is busy stressing theirs out!  One tiny walnut sized gland sits on top of each kidney.  These two tiny glands pack a lot of power in terms of our vitality and overall health.  The adrenals interact closely with the thyroid, the pancreas and the immune system and are responsible for producing cortisol – a potent anti-inflammatory – and the body’s best friend when in balance, but which can be quite a health challenge when out of balance.  When we treat the adrenals with whole food sources of support and herbs, energy returns, blood sugar balances out and gut health improves.  Adrenals crave plenty of B vitamins, trace minerals and Vitamin C for long term improvement.  I find that adding herbs like rhodiola and ginseng (among others) are a great way of speeding up the adrenal healing process. Another fantastic way to help reset the adrenals is to do a mild purification or detox.

6 additional tips for healing adrenal glands to regain your energy:
  • Enjoy the healty stress of mild exercises like walking or yoga.
  • Enjoy uninterrupted night-time sleep… and plenty of it.  
  • Enjoy taking short 1 or 2 minute (or longer) breaks to breath slowly using your belly (not upper chest).  This is great to do before sleep and right away when waking.
  • Cut out refined sugars and carbohydrates and add in healthy fats and proteins.
  • Don’t skip meals.
  • Make a short (or long) list of things to feel good about and focus on them.
