Sleep Issues + Adrenal Fatigue- How To Fix Naturally!

Sleep Issues + Adrenal Fatigue- How To Fix Naturally! Grab the Freebie (Sleep Journal & Guided Sleep Prep Exercise) here: Sleep issues and adrenal fatigue go hand in hand. It's SO frustrating! Here are my tips for balancing out your sleep/wake cycle naturally-- so you can get the sleep you need to fix your adrenals! If you're struggling with adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalance, you may be all to familiar with the unfortunate struggle of getting a good night's sleep. It's funny (not really), but you feel exhausted all day.. and then when it comes time to finally settling down and resting, you feel wired and when you finally fall asleep, your sleep is restless. When you wake up, you DON'T feel rejuvenated and this sets you up to move through another day, feeling exhausted. THE STRUGGLE IS REAL! SLEEP ISSUES ARE AMONG THE NUMBER ONE COMPLAINTS OF ADRENAL FATIGUE SUFFERERS IN OUR COMMUNITY. Our sleep/wake cycle is a hormonal cycle and cortisol is directly involved in this. Depending on the stage of adrenal fatigue you are in, this sleep/wake cycle can get disturbed in different ways. The biggest problem of this disturbance is that you’re hormonal imbalances can be making you feel exhausted during the day and preventing you from getting rejuvenating sleep a night. Honestly, there is nothing better for your adrenals than quality sleep, so this issue becomes a double edge sword-- in that we need to sleep to heal, but we can't seem to get the type of sleep that will finally allow for healing and rejuvenation. Good sleep helps balance cortisol to optimal curve, reduces nervous tension, helps control blood sugar and metabolism and so much more - but what if you can’t get it??? Today, we're sharing 15 rituals to help re-establish a balanced sleep/wake cycle and help promote deeper, more restorative sleep. 15 RITUALS TO GETTING GREAT SLEEP 1. AVOID EATING HIGH SUGAR FOOD/SIMPLE CARBS CLOSE TO BEDTIME Choose healthy snacks that will last throughout the night - like a handful of almonds, brazil nuts or have a green apple with nut butter. 2. LIMIT ALCOHOL INTAKE Though it may seem calming, alcohol affect the quality and depth of sleep you have-- and not in a good way. If you drink wine nightly, try limiting wine to weekends only. Find a replacement that will fill this void - especially at first - like sparkling water with lemon (in a wine class) or enjoy a nice hot cup of bedtime tea. 3. DIM THE LIGHTS Dim the lights in your home and room once it becomes dark outside to help your body stay connected to your natural, circadian rhythms. 4. AVOID CAFFEINE If avoiding caffeine seems impossible right now, limit your intake and don’t drink caffeine after noon. 5. DO A DIGITAL DETOX 1 HOUR BEFORE BED Time escapes you when you’re browsing social media or watching TV. Also, the blue light from electronics interferes with natural melatonin production, a hormone that allows you to fall asleep. Instead, fill that time with yin or restorative yoga or stretching, read a book that calms you, listen to classical or chill music, take a bath, journal to release troubles of the day, practice deep breathing or listen to guided meditations. If you’re going to be on technology use Apps like F.lux or different phone setting to tone down the blue light on your devices in the evening time. 6. MAKE YOUR BEDROOM A SANCTUARY Remove clutter from your bedside table and your room. Physical clutter in the environment leads to mental clutter in our minds. Make your space supportive of calming and relaxing you. 7. SLEEP IN COMPLETE DARKNESS Get a sleep mask as even the light from your alarm clock can influence the quality of sleep you get. If you wake up in the night and have to go to the bathroom, try to avoid turning on lights. Get a dim nightlight for your bathroom or hallway.

Get your free guide "Supplements For The Different Stages of Adrenal Fatigue" here: A few tips to keep in mind before using supplements to help support your adrenals. **DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor. Please consult with your doctor before taking new supplements so that your unique case has been reviewed and approved by a professional** In a perfect world, there would be a magic pill to help us recover from adrenal fatigue instantly. In the fast paced world we live in, this is something many are searching for.. and in attempt to support and repair their adrenals, many spend hundreds to thousands of dollars on natural health products. Here at (HYAF.CA), we are big proponents of a holistic approach to recovery. The truth is that though in some cases a major trauma can fatigue the adrenals very quickly, for the majority, the path to burnout has been a slow and steady build over a longer period of time. Of course, we each have a different story, but my point is that when it comes to adrenal recovery-- there is no magic pill and it can take a while for things to come back into balance. THERE IS NO MAGIC PILL. Even though there is no quick fix, supplements can be a wonderful way to help support and nourish a depleted body. They can be a helpful tool to incorporate into your holistic recovery plan. Today, I'm excited to share with you some supplement tips and tricks to optimize their effects and also, to highlight some of the common mistakes I see occurring all the time with our clients in practice. MISTAKE #1: ABSORPTION IS HINDERED BY GUT HEALTH ISSUES I see this all the time, people with all sorts of adrenal fatigue symptoms taking various supplements in tablet, capsule or soft gel form. I'm not saying that this in itself is a bad thing, but many AF sufferers struggle with the integrity of their intestinal health, hence all the digestive issues we experience. To maximize the bang for your buck, you want to make sure that you're able to breakdown, absorb and metabolize the supplements you are taking. Makes sense right? RECOMMENDATION: ACKNOWLEDGE GUT HEALTH SITUATION AND START THERE FIRST When considering starting a supplement plan, first check-in with your gut health. How has your digestion/elimination been lately? If you suspect this needs attention, then I recommend starting with some gut health focused supplements and dietary tweaks first. Examples: Have a glass of lemon water before meals Focus on chewing food very well to take stress of the digestive process Supplementing L-Glutamine Powder (5 grams mixed with a glass of water before bed) to help with repair of the intestinal lining Digestive Enzymes (take with each meal to help with breakdown and absorption) Try taking a combination powder supplement that helps restore gastrointestinal integrity such as this one. If you are anxious to add some sort of adrenal support to the mix, you could start lightly with some ashawaghanda root powder, which you can add to smoothies, chia puddings, elixirs and more.

Adrenal Health - 5 Simple Ways to Lower Cortisol

Adrenal Health - 5 Ways to Lower Cortisol Download the Free Stress-Free Living Day Planner HERE: In this video, we talk about 5 simple strategies to improve adrenal health and manage stress naturally. These 5 strategies all have to do with a powerful hormone that lowers cortisol, the stress hormone and balances the body after the stress response. As you probably know by now, adrenal fatigue and stress go hand-in-hand. The very root cause of adrenal fatigue is stress. When we encounter stress whether it's physical, mental or emotional, the same chemical reaction occurs. It looks something like this: First, our adrenals release and shower our bodies with hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. In response, our heart beats faster and harder, our blood pressure rises, our breath become shallow and weak and our blood rushes away from major organs (ie: organs of the digestive tract) and into our muscles so we can fight or flea from the stress, appropriately.

Keto Diet vs. Paleo Diet: Which Diet is Healthiest for You- Thomas DeLauer

Please Subscribe for 3x Videos Per Week + Live Broadcasts! Subscribe for 3x Videos Per Week! Keto Diet vs. Paleo Diet: Which Diet is Healthiest for You- Thomas DeLauer… The idea behind the Paleolithic diet is to replicate the ways that our ancestors ate; ancestors could only hunt and gather - had little access to grains and no access to processed foods. The ketogenic diet is designed to completely alter your internal state, a state in which your body burns fat. The Keto diet was originally developed for disease management and to this day is being used for conditions such as epilepsy. So, a paleo diet, just like a keto diet, focuses on getting fat and protein as a primary source of energy. However, the big difference is paleo doesn’t avoid carbs. While both diets came about for different reasons, they are both used (mainstream-ly) as effective tools for weight loss. Similarities - Health Benefits In addition to noticeable weight loss effects, collective studies from the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Journal of Internal Medicine, The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, and the New England Journal of Medicine have found that both Paleo and Keto diets are effective at reducing triglycerides, blood pressure, blood sugar and insulin levels (1,2,3,4) Despite providing similar health benefits, they do have some key differences. Key Differences: Carbs, Fats and Glucose- The main difference is that a Keto diet is truly low carb, whereas a Paleo diet is not necessarily low carb – paleo relies on glucose and keto relies on ketones A keto diet requires you to adhere to a strict macronutrient ratio (75% fat, 20% protein, 5% carb) The paleo diet still utilizes glucose for much of its energy so carbs are still a big part of the diet. In order to be in ketosis and utilize ketones, your body needs to be starved of glucose, which results in the body burning fatty acids that produce ketones; an alternative source of energy to glucose. Ketosis is a state that you have to achieve, paleo is about avoiding certain food groups. So a paleo diet is a little more forgiving as having too much of one macro or another won’t kick you out of a metabolic state, unlike keto. Dairy: The Paleo diet removes foods that are hard for the body to break down and can wreak havoc on gut health — dairy products are one of them. Keto dieters often eat dairy products because they’re high in fats while also being low in carbohydrates. Artificial Sweeteners/Food Quality: The Paleo diet cuts out most processed food, especially ones with artificial sweeteners and additives - focuses strongly on choosing whole foods that are nutrient-dense, high-quality, and free from toxins. However, on the Keto diet the only requirements are that your food is low-carb/high fat. This means diet soda is technically Keto approved and so are other artificially sweetened low-carb junk foods - Although a healthy Keto diet should also include high quality food, it isn’t the emphasis. Summed as short as possible - No processed foods vs no carbs (5) Paleo and CrossFit: Carbs are staples for CrossFit and athletes, but they are somewhat restricted in the Paleo diet. The Paleo diet also eliminates grains and legumes (both key carb sources for athletes), as well as dairy, salt, and vegetable oils. Carbs that are allowed on the paleo diet (no grains, for example) are too low on the glycemic index to replace glycogen mid- and post-run as quickly as endurance athletes typically need. You’re not low enough on carbs to be producing ketones so you’re not using fat as a main source of energy, and not high enough on carbs to be receiving enough energy from them (6) References: 1) Metabolic and physiologic improvements from consuming a paleolithic, hunter-gatherer type diet. - PubMed - NCBI.
