I think there is an epidemic today – it is called adrenal exhaustion. Do you know what that is or what the symptoms are?
Let me enlighten you……
Some experts believe that upwards of 80% of the population suffers from some level of adrenal insufficiency. Besides the usual symptoms of overwhelming fatigue and inability to handle stress, the symptoms listed below provide a more complete picture of adrenal fatigue and are often overlooked even by alternative practitioners.
ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS or CHRONIC COUGH, ALLERGIES, RECURRENT INFECTIONS, MUSCLE WEAKNESS AND BACK PAIN, SLEEP DISTURBANCES, DIZZINESS (POSTURAL HYPO TENSION), INFLAMMATION, HYPOGLYCEMIA, HEADACHES, BEHAVIOR AND MEMORY PROBLEMS, SALT CRAVING, EXCESSIVE THIRST AND URINATION, SWELLING, HEMORRHOIDS, VARICOSE VEINS, INDIGESTION, HYPER PIGMENTATION, HEART SOUNDS.
What is going on?
You go to bed at midnight and get up at 6 am day after day after day and then wonder WHY you cannot recover your energy. Our brain chemistry is meant to work with the daylight…..night comes the brain sends out the chemicals necessary for sleep and rejuvenation. Day comes and again the brain signals WAKE UP with energy for the day after a period of rest.
BUT with the advent of artificial light our brains chemistry is fooled and the body does not get the rest it requires to replenish the body on a daily basis. Then on top of all that throw in the multitudes of multitasking you do throughout the day and the quick unhealthy food (or reasonable facsimile) you put into your body and then you wonder why you cannot get out of first gear.
What can you do? You can see there is a common thread to my messages here….what can you do…what are you WILLING to do to help YOURSELF so you can have the quality of life that you want so YOU can have more LIFE for yourself and energy for your family?
Let me leave you today with a simple exercise that you can do over the next week so you can quickly SEE what is draining all of your energy.
Print out a BLANK calendar template and then label on each day HOW you are feeling ….in relation to the activity you are doing that day.
EX: Monday – activity = Work (happy, sad, calm, stressed, angry, frustrated, bored etc.) Volunteering at the school (happy, sad calm etc)……. THEN, look over these activities and identify which ones you are “stressed” by AND determine what the trigger might be. (ex: too tight a deadline – or you procrastinated/were not organized – thus the stress – solution maybe you need to start the project sooner OR be more organized.)
The purpose of this exercise is to paint a picture of where you are getting stuck or leaking VITAL ENERGY (definition of Vital=necessary to the continuation of life).
Let me know what you find out and how I can help if you need support gathering up your life force…….
