Insight from Bobbie with The Natural Alternative Nutrition Center
Are you feeling the constant stress of work, caring for children, outside obligations, and the demands of a 24/7 life? Are you feeling bloated, anxious, depressed, tired, weight is creeping up, and you fall into bed exhausted and still can’t sleep? Maybe I can help you!
You just might be exhausting your adrenals — tiny glands that secrete cortisol and adrenaline, in addition to being a backup generator for sex hormones. Now I have your attention?!
Stress will cause elevated cortisol from the adrenals which make you feel anxious, hungry, and unable to sleep — leaving your body further stressed!
Adrenal fatigue can interfere with thyroid hormone production as well as progesterone and testosterone production contributing to mood swings, anxiety, depression, fatigue, hot flashes, the list goes on.
Your lab tests appear normal, but are they really? I analyze lab reports using “functional” ranges, much tighter than the conventional lab ranges, therefore issues can be detected well before you fall into the disease state.
Start with Diet!
A healthy diet is always foundational to improve health and vitality. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and must include protein, a healthy fat and a low glycemic carb. Ideas include eggs and sautéed veggies with avocado or a power-packed protein shake with high-quality protein powder, berries, banana, & greens! If you need more healthy ideas, please stop by and speak with my incredible team of wellness associates!
