Adrenal Fatigue

Do you experience a lack of enthusiasm, mild depression, or anxiety? Maybe a lack of energy? Or do you sometimes overreact to the stress in your life? Do you find yourself having multiple food allergies? If you answer yes to any of these, learning about your adrenals is important!

The adrenals are on the top of each kidney. They produce hromones that helop the body control blood sugar, utilize protein and fat for energy, respond to major illness or injury, and help regulate blood pressure. Two of the most important adrenal hormones are cortisol and aldosterone.

All of those conditions listed above can indicate something we call adrenal fatigue. This term is applied to a collection of nonspecific symptoms, such as those above, but is not an accepted medical diagnosis. We believe that it is an important point, at which we can impact and improve our health before we experience a major disorder. As always, it’s important to work with an experienced and trusted medical professional to rule out adrenal insufficiency or an underlying disease! Please don’t self-diagnose.

Whether you call it adrenal fatigue or chronic stress, if your lifestyle is affecting your body’s ability to recuperate from physical, mental, or emotional stress there are things you can do to heal!

Certain herbs have been long associated with support of our body’s ability to manage and respond to stress. Now, we know that the glands responsible for this (and supported by these herbs) are the adrenals.

Asian ginseng and black pepper may help with your fatigue and fight everyday stress.

Ashwagnada root (an important herb in Ayurvedic medicine) may help decrease anxiety you may feel that is related to all your daily obligations.

Astragulas (also important in Ayurvedic medicine) may help support your immune system.

Amla berry and astaxanthin (together with Asian ginseng and black pepper) provide antioxidants to help fight free radicals.

Detox Your Kidneys!

Your kidneys filter out toxins and waste from your bloodstream. Because toxins can affect your entire body, supporting your kidneys is crucial, and can help keep you in good health. Without a planned approach to cleansing your body systems, toxins can build up and affect the function of your kidneys and liver, as well as the neighboring organs.

Toxins can come from either outside or inside our bodies. Exogenous toxins (i.e., coming from outside your body) are poisons or pollutants introduced into the body through air, food, water, or another outside source. Endogenous toxins (those originating within your body systems) consist of byproducts of metabolizing natural bacteria and yeast. We all encounter toxins in our day to day lives, so it’s important to cleanse!

Your kidneys are important organs, so consider building a healthy foundation for them to do their job! Just drinking plenty of purified water is a first step toward an effective flush. What else can you do?

Some simple, at-home approaches include:

Cranberry juice. Research shows that cranberries can help fight against urinary tract infections, and my also be helpful in cleansing the kidneys of excess calcium oxalate (one of the main contributors to kidney stones).

Beet Juice. Betain, a very beneficial phytochemical in beet juice, has antioxidant qualities and can help clear calcium phosphate buildup.

Lemon Juice. Naturally acidic lemon juice has been shown to increase citrate levels in urine, a factor that discourages kidney stones from forming.

These easy to use at home solutions will definitely help. But, if you need more of a cleanse, consider adding a specially formulated supplement. Herbs Can Cleanse carries a range of internal cleanse solutions, including high-quality formulas from the Pure Body Institute.
