How to Combat Adrenal Fatigue
The solutions for combating adrenal fatigue are simple—however, actually integrating them into your life can be challenging.
First and foremost, reduce and learn to manage stress. High stress levels are a major contributor to the epidemic of adrenal fatigue.
Adequate sleep is another key ingredient for resolving adrenal fatigue. Sleep at the right time is crucial. Sleeping from 1am to 9am is not as restorative as sleeping from 10pm to 6am. Early to bed and early to rise is truly an adage to live by.
Sometimes, after years of running your body into the ground, lifestyle changes aren’t enough. A combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and nutritional supplements are often indicated for rebalancing the neuro-endocrine system and addressing adrenal fatigue.
If you feel yourself cruising down the road to burnout, consult with an acupuncturist. Changing your lifestyle and balancing the adrenal system is nothing short of essential, and will improve the way you look, think, and feel.
