Ready to Enjoy your Summer with a Spring in your Step and One in your Brain?










It is not uncommon for people to have a hard time tolerating the heat because of Adrenal stress.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE ADRENAL STRESS?

Your blood pressure changes up or down, and you may have associated light headedness.
You experience cravings for salty or sugary foods.
You are a lot more prone to allergies.
You may feel sluggish and tired or waking up at night between 4 & 6 am.
Struggling to get through the day, or anxious or unable to re-frame your thinking.
Experience more low back pain or increase pain where you were already hurting.
You may have cramps or Charley horses in the calf muscles.
You may feel more energy in the evenings.

WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN WHEN IT GETS HOT?

Among the many functions of the Adrenal glands, (aka the stress glands, the little Chinese shaped hats that sit on top of the Kidneys, located in your low back area), is the fact that they contribute to the control of  the heart’s flow and output of blood. When it is hot, your heart works harder so you can stay cool and not feel dizzy.
Anytime you solicit a gland to work and if it is already out of sorts, it is like whipping a tired horse.

Another remarkable thing the Adrenals do is to control how much water is in and out of the cells so that there is optimal exchange of “Goods”.
When the Adrenals are not happy, you tend to accumulate water and gain fat more characteristically in the arms, legs and face (Moon Face.)
The Adrenals also affect your brain by producing Adrenaline and Cortisol, both of which influence other brain messenger chemicals and or circuits which will affect your mood and drive.

WHAT TO DO, TO REMAIN YOUR AMAZING SELF?

READ PEOPLES MAGAZINE!

Every organ is like a factory, it needs raw materials to produce goods. The following is a basic list of raw materials that the Adrenals especially like:

VITAMIN C & E ;
VIT B : 1 .
2 . 3 . 5 . 6 . FOLATE, Brewers Yeast, Mushrooms, Rare Red Meat.
Drink Water: 2 - 3 L / DAY
OMEGA3 Type fats, it is best to buy capsules of sardine or anchovies oil. I recommend “Optimal EFAs” from Biotics Research, “EYEQ” from Equizen or “VEGEPA”  from Ingennus.
PROTEINS: 1.2 g / Kg of body weight. Chicken, Turkey, Eggs, Oats, RAW Pumpkin seeds, almonds, Avocados, Bananas, Lima Beans, Blue Berries, Spirulina.
ELECTROLYTES: Sea Salt ¼ of a tea spoon in a glass of water 1-2x/DAY, Organic Coconut Water
BOSWELLIA Infusions and use Turmeric spice on your foods.
EAT BREAKFAST!!! Even if you are not hungry, eat something with a quality protein, fat and carbohydrate.
Marmalade on brioche or toast with coffee will send you into a hypoglycemic spiral and kick the poor Adrenals and Pancreas right where it hurts.

Receive Network Spinal Analysis Chiropractic “adjustments”,
it is one of the most powerful methods I know to help your brain to become calmer and coherent so it can regulate properly the Adrenals; and defrost and release your low back, so that the Adrenals receive all the nerve energy they need to work right.

If all this information seems a bit overwhelming, I will be clarifying and expanding on it during my next conference on Tuesday June 16th at my office.

Energy Rich week to Youhu   :)
