Support your adrenal glands naturally

Maintaining healthy adrenal glands (adrenals) is a key to overall wellness and longevity. Unfortunately, due to our stressed lifestyle, most of us suffer from adrenal fatigue.

Signs of adrenal fatigue are weight gain or loss, salt/sugar cravings, loss or low libido, brain fog, low Blood Pressure, frequent illness or lowered immunity, fatigue after physical and/or mental exertion, irritability, and difficulty in sleeping.

There are three types of adrenal dysregulation: tired and wired, can’t sleep, increase in energy in the evening and exhausted all the time.

Lifestyle choices that support your adrenals: 

Sleep, Sleep, Sleep. Going to bed and getting up at the same time every day.

Go to bed before 10pm.

Staying in bed until 9am, the most restorative time for your adrenals is between 7am-9am

11 min nap 2x per day
