Fasting paired with a detox meal plan for superior adrenal health!

The adrenal glands

The adrenal glands are two glands that sit on top of your kidneys that are made up of two distinct parts.

  • The adrenal cortex—the outer part of the gland—produces hormones that are vital to life, such as cortisol (which helps regulate metabolism and helps your body respond to stress) and aldosterone (which helps control blood pressure).
  • The adrenal medulla—the inner part of the gland—produces nonessential (that is, you don’t need them to live) hormones, such as adrenaline (which helps your body react to stress).

Glucocorticoids released by the adrenal cortex include:

  • Hydrocortisone: Commonly known as cortisol, it regulates how the body converts fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to energy. It also helps regulate blood pressure and cardiovascular function.
  • Corticosterone: This hormone works with hydrocortisone to regulate immune response and suppress inflammatory reactions.

 The principle mineral corticoid is aldosterone, which maintains the right balance of salt and water while helping control blood pressure. There is a third class of hormone released by the adrenal cortex, known as sex steroids or sex hormones. The adrenal cortex releases small amounts of male and female sex hormones. However, their impact is usually overshadowed by the greater amounts of hormones (such as estrogen and testosterone) released by the ovaries or testes.

Adrenal Medulla Hormones:

Hormones secreted by the adrenal medulla are:

  • Epinephrine: Most people know epinephrine by its other name—adrenaline. This hormone rapidly responds to stress by increasing your heart rate and rushing blood to the muscles and brain. It also spikes your blood sugar level by helping convert glycogen to glucose in the liver. (Glycogen is the liver’s storage form of glucose.)
  • Norepinephrine: Also known as noradrenaline, this hormone works with epinephrine in responding to stress. However, it can cause vasoconstriction (the narrowing of blood vessels). This results in high blood pressure.

Symptoms of adrenal fatigue

Sometimes when our bodies are stressed on a day-to-day basis with no relief in sight whether it be a job or relationship it will begin to break down. Chronic inflammation is the result and then comes a diagnosis. You can prevent this from happening by going holistic because nature means you no harm the way man does!!

Some signs you need to pay attention to that may be warning you of a system shutdown…

I am a fun-loving, motivated type of woman. I have been through a lot in my life and nothing was ever just given to me. I am a nurse, medical assistant, nutritionist, and have a diploma in aromatherapy. I love helping others but would like it to be on my terms and what I'm most passionate about. I love researching everything about the human body and how it works, shopping, whipping up herbal cures, making soap, and spending time with my family. When I fasted 21 days to cure cancer after refusing toxic chemo & radiation I was opened up to knowledge and wisdom!! I used parts of my brain for the very first time! I knew things I should not have if that makes sense!! You see they gave me 6 months but The Most High had other plans for my life. You see we are given a dirt body to hold the spirit but it also needs to be nourished. The Torah is God's words written by man and the 22 letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet are the same 22 amino acids in our bodies. The garden of Eden is "The feminine enclosure of delight." That is what it translates to in Hebrew and those rivers Moses described are a function of the female body. I have been chosen to heal Yahweh's dirt bodies and for that I am grateful! I write ebooks about the body that make it easier for others not in the field to understand, it’s all wordplay to mess with your psyche! I also make my own products to help people follow through with spiritual fasts to cure disease.
