The pain relieving specialist gives a hint: Overwork, exhaustion, weakness and “brain fog”. Sounds familiar? Well then… see you soon.
The above-mentioned complaints are intensified by problems falling asleep and sleeping through the night. Typically, the result is that the affected person wakes up between 2-4am in the morning and finds it difficult to fall asleep again. The day then begins correspondingly “energetically”. This draws another thing into the orbit… an increased susceptibility to illness and a longer recovery phase. Who recognises themselves here?
Let’s talk about adrenal insufficiency. Shall we?
Adrenal glands are located in the body at the top of the kidneys. This is where various hormones are made, including cortisol. Does it make sense to have a weakness checked by lab data. Certainly. In this case, for example, with a corstisol saliva test or/and the DHEA value (DHEA is the antagonist of cortisol).
The problems do not occur overnight, just like that. It is a process. Only when no changes are made, then it becomes really difficult. What happens when a gland or an organ is permanently stressed and permanently in the “red zone”? What happens to a car when the driver does this permanently? Any ideas? So what has a big impact on organs and well-being?
The circumstances of life. What are the coping strategies usually like? Alcohol, nicotine, other drugs, and distraction through e.g. media consumption. Have I forgotten something? Oh, and frustration eating. That’s not an apple or a salad then, I guess. That’s usually something that the body needs considerable energy to get rid of.
Can the body make healthy cells out of pizza and burgers? Difficult. Well, what could you do? What can you cut down on? Avoid highly processed foods, foods containing white flour and highly sugared foods. What can you use in addition? Homeotherapeutic treatments from specialists.
What else can you use yourself? Adaptogenic support would be an approach to increase stress tolerance. Ashwaghanda, Rhodiola, Eleuthero or Asian ginseng would be a good start. Consult a specialist about this.
In addition, eat a healthy diet. Eat a diet rich in vital substances. Physical exercise. Starting with endurance sports, with low and high intensity, to strength and resistance training in all variations.
Have I been able to give you some new ideas? Let me know.
See you next time. Stay strong.
