Are you TATT? That stands for tired..….all..…. the..…. time. You might be suffering from adrenal burnout.
The adrenals are tiny glands sitting on top of the kidneys and their job is to manage stress but prolonged stress also causes them to malfunction – they simply get tired, which makes you feel tired too. Among the many other signs of adrenal fatigue are depression, insomnia, allergies, immune problems, hormonal imbalances, memory impairment, unstable blood pressure and blood sugar and menopausal symptoms.
With the frenetic pace of modern life, who doesn’t suffer from stress? Lack of, or too much, exercise, negative emotions, a bad diet, chronic inflammation and thyroid problems also contribute to adrenal breakdown, which explains why an estimated three quarters of adults will have a bout of adrenal fatigue during their lives. Despite this, unless you have full blown Cushing’s or Addison’s disease, your conventional doctor is unlikely to diagnose adrenal difficulties as the source of your woes.
What can you do?
There are some natural solutions which include stress-busters like sensible exercise, meditation and sufficient sleep. Another crucial aspect is diet – cut way back on the processed, sugar-laden rubbish and get more good quality protein and fats. Add more salt – not the chemical, white powdered stuff but the real kind that is loaded with minerals. (Learn the benefits of drinking SOLE)
Last, but not least, make sure to include some Marvel Oils. Top of the list are Coconut Oil and Blackcurrant Seed Oil. Both are anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and nourishing. They both help support immune function as well as the thyroid and the adrenals. Coconut Oil is a reliable and healthy source of quick energy which also contributes to blood sugar balance. Blackcurrant Seed Oil’s other name is homeopathic cortisone because it has similar properties to endogenous cortisone.
