Adrenal Body Type Package

How to Fix an Adrenal Body Type

Understanding Adrenal Fatigue

Your adrenals are crucial for stress response, the classic "fight or flight" system. However, they're built for short bursts of physical stress, not the chronic mental strain of modern life. Trauma, prolonged stress, or surgery can wear them down, leading to adrenal dysfunction (also called adrenal fatigue, burnout, or stress).

Signs Your Adrenals May Be Struggling:

  • Feeling overwhelmed easily

  • Racing thoughts, especially at night

  • Blood sugar issues (high sugar, cholesterol)

  • Excess fat around the middle

  • Digestive problems (gastritis)

  • High blood pressure or heart rate

  • Asthma, inflammation

  • Mineral deficiencies (calcium, potassium, sodium)

  • Vitamin D deficiency

  • Brain fog, memory problems

  • Fatigue, shortness of breath

  • Intense salt cravings

Supporting Adrenal Recovery

  • Key Nutrients: Vitamin C (citrus, peppers, greens), potassium (big salads), sodium (sea salt), vitamin B1 (nutritional yeast)

  • Stress Reduction: Essential for healing!

  • Diet: Keto, with ample protein and adrenal-supportive nutrients

  • Movement: Both high-intensity exercise and relaxing walks

  • Adaptogens: Consider ashwagandha for additional support
