How to fix adrenal body type?

Your adrenals help adapt the body to stress—they have a lot to do with fight or flight. However, this system is meant to deal with short-term physical stress, not the chronic mental stress many people undergo now. Trauma, chronic stress, or even surgery can lead to adrenal dysfunction. Adrenal dysfunction is also known as adrenal fatigue, adrenal burnout, or adrenal stress.

Top symptoms of adrenal fatigue or the adrenal body type:

• Low-stress tolerance

• Overthinking (especially at night)

• High blood sugar

• High cholesterol

• Fat in the liver and visceral organs

• Gastritis

• High blood pressure

• High pulse rate

• Asthma

• Inflammation

• Calcium deficiency

• Potassium deficiency

• Sodium deficiency

• Vitamin D deficiency

• Memory loss

• Brain fog

• Getting out of breath while climbing stairs

• Salt cravings

The best nutrients for adrenal burnout:

• Vitamin C (sauerkraut, bell peppers, leafy green vegetables, lemons, limes, and berries)

• Potassium (large salads)

• Sodium (sea salt)

• Vitamin B1 (unfortified nutritional yeast)

How to fix adrenal fatigue:

1. Decrease stress

2. Get on the keto diet with higher amounts of high-quality protein and nutrients that are good for adrenal fatigue

3. Exercise (high-intensity exercise and long walks)

4. Take adaptogens (ashwagandha)
