Feel Like You've Hit a Wall? Could be Adrenal Fatigue

Feel Like You've Hit a Wall? Could be Adrenal Fatigue

Feeling extremely tired, irritable, and having brain fog, fatigue, and trouble losing weight are all common symptoms of adrenal fatigue. And it can be near impossible to live with, especially if you don’t fully understand how to handle it.

Adrenal fatigue is a stress-related condition that many people experience, yet it’s still not widely recognized in the medical community. It can impact a person’s health in many ways and is caused by the disruption of your body’s adrenal glands, which are responsible for making cortisol and other hormones in response to stress.

Water Anyone?

Water Anyone?

Most people understand that in order to live a healthy lifestyle, they need to eat more whole foods and get in regular exercise. But there’s another component to being healthy that many overlook: drinking enough water!

Staying hydrated is really important for health and wellness. In fact, the body is mostly water itself and thus depends on water for survival, all the way down to each specific organ and cell. When you think about it that way, it makes sense that water is crucial to proper function of the body.

Ditching Your Sugar Addiction

Ditching Your Sugar Addiction

It’s 4:00 pm, and you start to hear that little voice calling your name. You can’t concentrate on work. All you can think about is sugar. Maybe you’re the person who can’t walk by those office donuts without giving in. Or you can’t make it through the afternoon without hitting the vending machine. Or every time you’re stressed, the first thing you do is go straight for the sugar. 

If any of these sound like you, then you might have a sugar addiction. While the occasional indulgence is fine, it’s when it gets to the point where sugar has a serious hold on you that you may want to consider making a change.

Have you ever experienced cravings that you couldn’t control? Or do you find yourself binge eating, overeating, or emotional eating? While there can be several reasons for why you do these things, one of the most overlooked causes is your blood sugar being out of whack (yes, that is a technical term). 

While there are many changes you can make to address some of these issues, if I had to call out one specific thing that’s going to help you lose weight, reduce stress, help heal adrenal fatigue, cure cravings, overcome binge eating, gain energy, and stop the chronic yo-yo dieting cycle, it would be... ta-da! Balancing your blood sugar! (Bet you were expecting something more exciting, huh?)
