Many doctors don’t acknowledge it as a problem but fasting is the cure!!

Ever been to a doctor and explained to them your symptoms only to be given a new prescription? The feeling of defeat comes in when you feel like nobody is listening or really trying to get to the underlying problem, meanwhile you’re the one suffering.

I know all too well the feeling and as a nurse, I have counseled many patients who felt the same. Our doctors are overworked so if anybody is going to have to work harder for your fight it’s going to have to be you.

Adrenal fatigue & stress

Adrenal fatigue is something doctors brush off. Our bodies were made to handle little amounts of stress on a daily basis. Our thyroid is now shutting down because it’s completely overworked from chronic stress. This means like a good partner the adrenal glands have to take over and they are not supposed to handle little stress but be ready to release adrenalin if a lion comes out of the forest to chase you!

Today we see a bunch of overworked people not even realizing stress being the silent killer is slowly taking a toll on the inside of the body. Nothing is working the way it’s supposed to because so many overworked organs are trying to handle chronic stress with no breaks in between.

Adrenal fatigue has several symptoms you should watch out for:

Low Energy

Cortisol is one of the essential hormones produced by the adrenal glands; it plays several important roles, including converting sugar and fat into energy. If the adrenal gland produces an insufficient amount of cortisol, fatigue will be the result.

Anxiety

Cortisol is also a key player in how the body reacts to stress. When cortisol levels drop, the body may have an increased stress response, leading to panic and anxiety attacks more than we would like to admit to ourselves at times.

 Frequent Illness

Hormones produced by the adrenal glands also help regulate the immune system. When too few of these hormones are produced, the immune system does not function as it should, especially if the person is also experiencing exhaustion and anxiety. Since the body is unable to protect itself efficiently, it is not only more susceptible to illness and infections, but it gets harder to heal, as well.

Difficulty Falling Asleep

Difficulty falling asleep is a symptom of adrenal fatigue with a clear tie to some of the others we already mentioned. If you have a hard time falling asleep, it stands to reason that you may wake up with exhaustion and low energy. Cortisol is involved in regulating the sleep/wake cycle, and a hormonal imbalance can alter the natural rhythms of the body, leading to insomnia and interrupted sleep patterns night after night.

Frequent Urination

Another hormone released by the adrenal glands is aldosterone, which signals the kidneys to regulate sodium and potassium. Those experiencing adrenal fatigue may deal with frequent urination, which, at best, is inconvenient and, at worst, can significantly harm the body if not addressed.

Adrenal Insufficiency

Adrenal insufficiency and adrenal fatigue are not the same. True adrenal insufficiency is rare and considered an official medical diagnosis. If the problem lies in the adrenal glands themselves, a doctor will diagnose Addison’s disease, but adrenal insufficiency can also stem from diseases in the hypothalamus or pituitary gland, which signal the adrenal glands to produce and release necessary hormones. Proponents of adrenal fatigue as a diagnosis believe that the hormonal insufficiencies it causes are not quite as severe as with true adrenal insufficiency but cause significant symptoms nonetheless.

The cure is a 3 day reboot fast!

No worries with the right knowledge and proper nutrition we can beat this. I did a three-day fast to reboot my body to factory settings, then a 21 day fast to cure cancer and I felt amazing!!! Prior to this, I ate adrenal stimulating foods for a week.

Fasting is the cure

The issue is you can’t play God if there is already one. Meaning we were created in a certain way, are made to function off certain foods, herbs, essential oils, etc., and not chemically processed meds, factory-made supplements, drugs, artificial food, or alcohol. You see the body has not changed only the information we are told about it! Anytime money’s involved its wealth over health!!

Meditate your Daily Stress Away….

Meditation is so important yet many people have no idea how to or don’t care to try!

 

Find a comfy/cozy spot to lie down or sit, whatever helps you relax the most.

 

Step 1

Start off by taking five nice and slow deep breaths in and out….relax. As you breathe in focus on filling your lungs with air until you see your chest expand. While breathing out, let all those negative thoughts and feelings you have right now just disappear. Right now it’s just you and only you, no worries. Allow the tension to just melt away like chocolate in a hot car in the summer. This is the first step and will help prepare your body for the exercise ahead.

 

Step 2

Concern yourself with you and nobody else at this moment in time. So how are you feeling, be honest with yourself….if not you then who will? So you are not quite there yet, repeat step one until you are. Relaxation is not to be rushed so please take your time getting there. This part will differ from person to person, some of us just naturally can’t handle stress at all.

You can’t control or rush sleep naturally so this is the same thing you can’t rush how fast your body relaxes. Thought rushing through your mind, no worries you would be dead if they weren’t! Just, for now, let us allow nature to take its course. rush relaxation, you cannot rush sleep, so take your time with this part of the exercise.

Most importantly don’t fight the feeling, it is the body’s natural way of calming down and reflecting. Whatever you do, avoid the temptation to resist the thoughts, no matter how unsettling or uncomfortable they may be.

 

Step 3

Now ask yourself three important questions as you wrap your arms around yourself as if to give yourself the hug you been needing today. Your eyes should be closed and you should be feeling more at ease.

 

  1. What do I love the most about myself?
  2. What makes me happy?
  3. What is my favorite childhood memory?

 

With these three questions controlling your thoughts and those three alone, your mind should be filled with pleasantness.

 

Breathing is key but there is not really a correct way as long as your breathing naturally. Do this anytime and anywhere to control those negative thoughts and energies attacking you!
