Lately, I’ve been facing challenges like the passing of my parents, major surgeries and financial crisis … nothing worse than anyone else’s challenges, but they depleted me to the point where I could not be effective in the world.
Even with extensive inner work on my own and with other healers … exercise … supplements and vitamins galore … my stamina refused to return. I rarely left the house. Just looking at emails wore me out for the day.
Thanks to my wonderful doctor, we recently identified a major cause of this malaise; I’ve been struggling with adrenal exhaustion without knowing it – along with an estimated 80% of the world’s population, according to some studies.
My doctor recommended herbal adrenal supplements, since I’m not a candidate for hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). They have helped a great deal.
Further research guided me to the web site of Dr. Alan Christianson, a naturopathic doctor who takes a food-as-medicine approach to treating hormonal issues.
I’ve been following his diet as detailed in “The Adrenal Reset Diet” – and after just two weeks, I felt up to putting together this newsletter for you. I had to do it in baby steps over four days – but I’ve loved every minute of it!
So if you’re feeling overwhelmed by fear or stress, you might consider taking Dr. Christianson’s Adrenal Crash Quiz to see if your symptoms match any of the three stages of adrenal distress.
You’ll find plenty of solutions and resources on the good doctor’s web site, too.
His suggestions are working for me. If you’re in a situation like mine, I hope they work for you, too.
What do you do to boost your energy? I’d love it if you’d leave a comment or suggestion!
Go well, my friend
