The book opens with an overview of the function of the adrenals, and how they are prone to chronic fatigue given our hyper-stressed contemporary lifestyles.Read more ›
I suspect I have been hydroadrenic since birth (hereditary maybe? or whatever), and after reading this book have realized many occurrences from my hyperactive childhood to my current mid-40s have finally fallen into place. I have suffered chronic exhaustion and lethargy for almost 20 years, along with a host of other symptoms, yet a host of medical tests revealed nothing. I switched to organic foods last year, and while visiting my doctor for something else, mentioned that the organics seemed to give me more energy and that I seemed to be sensitive to chemicals. She asked a few more questions, delightedly agreed with me, and suggested that I had "21st Century Syndrome". I promptly looked it up, found this book, and have now made additional changes to my lifestyle that have significantly improved my quality of life in only these few short weeks.
The book is well-written and very clear. Dr. Wilson does offer supplements on his website (which I have not personally viewed, in fact), but does not even mention his products until well into the book, and exerts no pressure on the reader to purchase anything.Read more ›
The adrenal glands are located on top of your kidneys at the bottom of your ribcage. They are considered the 'glands of stress' and allow your body to deal with stress, including physical, emotional, psychological, infectious and environmental. However, when you are under too much stress for too long a period of time, it weakens your adrenal glands. If you have a handful of the following symptoms you might suffer from adrenal fatigue:
o You have difficulty getting out of bed and are still tired
o You don't have energy or enjoyment with life or are mildly depressed
o You aren't as interested in sex
o It takes you a long time to recover from an injury or illness
o You get light headed when you stand up quickly
o You have increased PMS and probably chocolate cravings
o You get worse when you skip meals or you drive yourself with coffee, cola or snacks ' sweet or salty
o Your thoughts are fuzzy or your memory suffering
o You have decreased productivity and ability to handle stress
Wilson's book includes a comprehensive look at how to recover from adrenal fatigue naturally. It requires a lifestyle change not a medication. Nutrition is a big part of the recovery equation.Read more ›
