After my cross-country move, I noticed I was severely exhausted, cold, my short term memory was HORRIBLE ( I locked my keys out twice, lost my phone, etc.) and I felt depressed from the exhaustion. I had about 2 good hours in me a day. I had to lay down the rest of the day. I’d wake up exhausted, take a nap at noon, sleep for 2 hours, finally get some energy at 4, and then work like crazy till 9, get tired, wake up at 10 and stay up till 2. A very nasty cycle. When I researched this, I found these were the symptoms of adrenal exhaustion.
I watched a billion you tube videos from a billion doctors dealing with exhaustion, adrenal exhaustion and thyroid issues. This is a synopsis of what they recommended. (I am not a doctor. Don’t listen to me. Do your own research. *blah blah blah) I’ve not included the amounts I took. Do not take my advice without doing your own homework with an endocrinologist. It’s very complicated stuff.
This is the best article I found on the issue, from Dr. Axe. http://draxe.com/3-steps-to-heal-adrenal-fatigue/
This is the protocol I developed for myself based on my research. My boyfriend has been doing it to, with great success. After 2 weeks, I’m almost as good as new, and he is too. I still need a nap here and there, but I am taking these supplements and this protocol seriously in a daily fashion. I wish you the best in whatever YOU choose to do. (Update: at 6 months out, this is still working for both of us. I still need an daily nap, but it’s much better. I’ve backed off the iodine, and vitamin D because when tested, I had been taking too much. Lifting weights and gentle exercise like dancing and yofa is working better than strenuous workouts.)
No sugar. NO GLUTEN, STIMULANTS OR ALCOHOL. If you’re serious about your health, you’ll take it seriously!
Thank you and good healing to you!
