If you want to know how to treat adrenal fatigue naturally here are three simple tips for you.
Tip #1: Sleep 8-19 Hours Every Night
Sometimes the best thing you can do for your body is getting enough sleep. And you must sleep in the dark, any light exposure will prevent you from making enough melatonin and keep your adrenals from healing. Healthy adrenals produce the most cortisol and DHEA during the day. Cortisol should not be spiking at night. Deep uninterrupted sleep at night in the dark helps reset your circadian rhythm. Then be sure you get up with the sun to Reboot your natural adrenal rhythm.
Tip #2: Eat Healthy Fat for Adrenal Hormones
Your adrenals need fat to function. Fat is what all your steroid hormones are made of. Cortisol, DHEA, and aldosterone are steroid hormones, meaning they have a cholesterol molecule at their core. If you don’t get enough healthy fat in your diet or if you don’t absorb fat well, it’s hard to make an adequate amount of steroid hormones. Be sure you eat at least thirty percent of your calories as fat – one-third of your fat should be saturated like from fatty fish, butter and coconut oil and two-thirds of your fat should be unsaturated like olive oil, avocados, nut, seeds.
Tip #3: Support Your Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis
Your adrenals are stimulated to produce hormones by a negative feedback system. If your cortisol levels are low, your hypothalamus tells your pituitary to tell your adrenals to make more. The hypothalamic hormone that controls your adrenals also controls your thyroid and your glucose metabolism. That’s why it’s so important to support your hypothalamus. Especially when you’re recovering from adrenal fatigue. Otherwise your thyroid will be affected or you may develop insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.
