Adrenal Fatigue Natural Remedies

When your adrenal glands are so fatigued, it causes low energy, tiredness, exhaustion, weakness, allergies, sleep problems, low sex drive, poor concentration, and the inability to cope with stress. Causes may come from nutritional deficiencies, adrenal or pituitary tumors, or prolonged stress.

Modern medicine often ignores the causes and uses steroids or stimulants with their attending side effects. Use the natural way to help adrenal fatigue through good nutrition and helpful supplements to rehabilitate the adrenals.

Diet: remove tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and fast foods. Also exercise moderately and sleep eight hours a day.

Some of the most important nutrients are to use a whole-food source such as using Stress Multi-Vitamins from New chapter for optimal nutrition, and Amla-C or New Chapter’s C-Food Complex.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) Natural Remedies

Chronic fatigue (CFS) is a debilitating disorder where the patient is plagued by overwhelming fatigue. Symptoms include chronic exhaustion, joint pains, sore throat, headaches, muscle aches, and glandular swelling. Common cause is unknown, and is often frustrating for sufferers. Modern medicine has very little answers and mostly prescribes rest. When pressed, they may prescribe stimulants.

The natural perspective of chronic fatigue is generally a stress response in over-achieving and perfectionist women; statistically those who are executive women in their 30s to 50s experience symptoms. This may also cause hypersensitivity to environmental conditions, often emotionally caused.

What you can do naturally is to start by cleaning up your diet, making sure you are free of tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and diet products. Homeopathy and cell salts are often indicated because of hypersensitivity as they do not interact with other medications and are non-toxic.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Heat Exhaustion, Rehydrating Natural Remedies

Heat exhaustion occurs when the body over heats. Normally, the body cools itself by sweating. But if you are exposed to high temperatures for a long time and don’t replace the fluids you lose, the body systems that regulate temperature become overwhelmed. As a result, the body produces more heat than it can dissipate. Heat exhaustion requires immediate attention, because it can progress to heat stroke, a serious (even fatal) illness. The person is mentally alert but weak and exhausted. They are still sweating; but they MUST be re-hydrated and cooled.

heat exhaustion can be dangerousHeat Stroke or Sunstroke is the stage past heat exhaustion. It is very dangerous – even fatal. The person is no longer sweating. They are confused, tired, dizzy, fainting, and the face can be flushed. There may also be nausea, a rapid pulse and severe headache, or a fever. They need immediate re-hydration and cooling. VERY DANGEROUS – seek medical attention then cool and re-hydrate the person quickly.

Exposure to the sun or heat without adequate water and cooling may create serious conditions. Re-hydration and cooling is essential. Modern medicine will use intravenous rehydration solutions.

There can be chronic, long-term effects from heat or sunstroke. The following natural solutions may help you if you have experienced heat exhaustion or heat stroke and are experiencing continuing symptoms. Rehydrate by eating or juicing carrots, celery or lettuce. Cool teas of demulcent herbs are often helpful to restore body fluids.
