We’ve all been there – the two o’clock crash zone. It’s that time of day when you can’t get out of your own way and all you want is a nap. Instead, you reach for a cup of coffee and that little piece of comfort food to keep you going.
What, though, if your fatigue isn’t just a little blip in your afternoon? What if you find yourself in a constant state of fatigue, always reaching for that quick pick-me-up just to keep yourself upright? You may be suffering from more than normal tiredness – it may be adrenal fatigue.
Adrenal Fatigue – More Widespread Than Ever
Adrenal fatigue sufferers are more common than you might think. It is estimated that up to 80% of people suffer from adrenal fatigue at one time or another.
As you can deduce from the name, one of the primary symptoms of adrenal fatigue is fatigue. However, this type of fatigue is more profound than the tiredness which comes from not getting a good night’s sleep. Sufferers often have a hard time getting out of bed, and when they do, it’s almost as if their bodies are suffocating. It’s a struggle to muster up the energy for even the most basic of tasks.
Sounding familiar? If so, you likely suffer from a host of other seemingly unrelated health issues that might include:
- lack of sex drive
- craving for caffeine
- craving for sugary snacks such as chocolate or candy
- craving for refined carbs
- skin problems such as acne or psoriasis
- digestive complaints
- random aches and pains
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, you are probably also instinctively reaching for the quick fix – sugar and caffeine. After all, most of us can’t put our life on hold even if we want to. Children have to be cared for, chores done, work accomplished… the list goes on.
However, so can your life! Living with adrenal fatigue need not be your fate!
You can cope with adrenal fatigue, and even conquer it, with inexpensive tools that you may already possess – right in your kitchen. Yes, adrenal fatigue is largely affected by what you eat. It’s likely that you already know that candy and coffee aren’t good for adrenal fatigue. However, you might be confused about what you should be eating for your adrenal fatigue. Carbs? No carbs? Fats? Proteins? Grains?
