Get up, get out of bed!
Is it hard to get out of bed in the morning? Are you struggling with decreased motivation, weight gain or a head that feels congested and heavy? You may be in adrenal fatigue.
Your adrenal glands produce hormones, including cortisol, which helps your body deal with stress. According to the adrenal fatigue theory, if your too stressed, your adrenal glands are unable to pump out appropriate amounts of cortisol.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine help balance your hormonal depletion and strengthen your adrenal gland function.
Paired with these home care ideas you may not need to hit the snooze button:
- Be kind to yourself: The fastest way to deplete your motivation and increase stress is to get down on yourself
- Eat it up: increase your intake of eggs, beef, chicken, rice, sprouts, and beans.
- Cut it out: consumption of sugar, soda, energy drinks, and yes, fruit juices and alcohol all contribute to adrenal fatigue
- Exercise 15-20 minutes a day: your body is meant to move and be active
