Adrenal tonics for exhaustion and unbalanced hormones.
How to support our hormones through food and nature
Our adrenal glands sit just above our kidneys and I like to call them our body’s swat team. Meaning they are ready to jump into action and protect us from danger. Their job ..to pump out stress hormones to help our body prepare for the influx of stress.
The problem we now face is our poor adrenals are in a constant state of flight or fight. Unfortunately as a women we live in a society not cyclically kind to our hormones. We are stressed from everyday life, the food we eat, our movement even our environment which we have no control over a lot of the time.
What happens then? Our body heads into adrenal fatigue or simply exhaustion. Therefore the impact on our hormones and cycles is a slippery slope. When treating cycle and hormone imbalances we are always looking to the root cause not always treating the symptom directly. So in this case I am always looking to support adrenal fatigue. Using adrenal tonics for exhaustion and imbalanced hormones in one simple place to start.
What are the signs of adrenal fatigue?
It varies from one person to the next but some common signs
- Tired but wired
- Cycles become long or irregular
- Cycles are gone missing or heavy
- joint pain
- Ibs or other gut issues
- Low blood pressure
- getting light headed.
How can we support adrenal fatigue?
Using adrenal tonics for exhaustion and imbalanced hormones are an easy and nutritious way to start through food among other techniques which I teach inside my group coaching programme- The align & Thrive academy which you can check out here 🌟💌🌙
The Adrenal Cocktail has just 3 ingredients which contain the minerals we need to support our adrenals. These minerals get lost in times of stress which has a knock on effect. The result being imbalanced hormones, cycle issues, infertility and exhaustion. These minerals are sodium, potassium and Vit C.
There are a few different recipes but this is one of my favourite and my clients. I recommend taking 2 x day when our body starts to run low naturally on energy and hormones. Around 10 am and also in the afternoon between 2-3 pm. Instead of reaching for the coffee and sugary snack why not start to introduce this adrenal tonic and get an energy high not a sugary dip.
- 100 ml of orange juice (freshly squeezes not concentrate) High in Vitamin C
- 200ml coconut water -Great source of Potassium
- 1/4 tsp of sea salt-Source of sodium.
Mix it together and drink.
