There are many reasons why have we become so fatigued: our stressful lifestyle, poor diet, lack of exercise, not enough sleep, or the unwanted gift of our modern age… Adrenal support is something almost everyone needs on a daily bases: having more energy and less stress – to be able to return your body to its normal state.
The nice thing about living the life is you don’t need to know how everything works to be appreciated. The same rule applies to the human body, we trust things are functioning normally and don’t give it a second thought. How many get through the day by boosting with drinking coffee or tea, a sugar rush or addictive medication? With this in mind what is your normal state?
We have two adrenal glands, one above each kidney. They produce important hormones cortisol, corticosterone, as well as small amounts of androgen and they are used to perform the most basic body functions. Did you know that our bodies are in constant stress?
Adrenal insufficiency is the term used when the adrenal hormones are low, also referred to as adrenal fatigue. The theory of adrenal fatigue is that it’s due to prolonged exposure to stress that drains the adrenals leading to a low cortisol state. Adrenal insufficiency causes heart palpitations, panic attacks, low sex drive, brain fog, low energy, depressive mood, savory and sweet cravings, lightheadedness upon rising, and other vague side effects or symptoms. Cortisol helps the body to deal with stress and since stress is so common in our daily lives the results are fatigue and lack of energy.
There are many reasons why have we become so fatigued: our stressful lifestyle, poor diet, lack of exercise, not enough sleep, or the unwanted gift of our modern age, the various forms of natural or man-made lighting referred to as electric and magnetic fields (EMFs). EMF’s are invisible energy zappers, that send to us non-ionizing high-level radiation having the potential of producing cellular and DNA damage, even being linked to an increase of cancer. Most of you have heard of wireless 5G technology – this is definitely one of those factors you should avoid for your health sake.
Normally recommended when taking the medical route of treating adrenal insufficiency – after examination – is replacing the missing cortisol by taking hydrocortisone, prednisone, methylprednisolone or cortisol replacements. There is never a shortage of receiving addictive medication, they flow like fluoridated water. These hormones are given to mimic (resemble closely the natural) the normal 24-hour hormone fluctuation of cortisol levels and they represent synthetic solutions that often come with a host of side effects. Nature always has a better way.
It should be noted that for any treatment the body as a whole should be considered, treating the adrenal glands without ensuring a healthy liver – as the adrenals rely on having a healthy liver – will not achieve the optimum results. The best treatment to provide liver health is SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), and the best form is the SAMe liquid from Doctor’s Choice. SAMe is so important for liver function that it should be considered an essential nutrient for liver health. SAMe plays a leading role in liver regeneration; the liver actually has special SAMe enzymes just for regenerating tissue.
In case of adrenal insufficiency, the most natural approach for adrenal support would be giving the whole food equivalent which would be adrenal glands. For this task we will need a superhero that is up for the task.
Let me introduce you to Doctor Adrenal. He is as pure as he can be, originating from New Zealand bovine. His homeland is grasslands that are non-fertilized and where the livestock is not administered feed supplements, hormones or antibiotics. The raw desiccated glands are quick frozen, never exceeding -5°C. Their cellular structure is not damaged and is preserved in a biologically active and live state. The glands are never subjected to organic or aqueous solvents, and therefore no chlorohydrocarbon remain as residue in the tissues.
Dr. Adrenal, the adrenal gland formulation, is supported with calcium ascorbate (a buffered mineral salt and water-soluble Vitamin C). Vitamin C is needed for tissue growth and repair, and for improved adrenal gland and immune function. Vitamin C helps lower the increased cortisol levels produced by being stressed. Frequent exposure to the high levels of stress hormones exhausts the body’s physical resources, impairs learning and memory, and makes people susceptible to depression.
In addition, gotu kola is added because of its history in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine proving its usefulness for reducing stress and anxiety and for treating depression.
Adrenal support is something almost everyone needs on a daily bases, in fact I am sure you will love having more energy and less stress, and because of less stress you will be able to recover much quicker to return your body to its normal state of being more calm and relaxed.
Best of health!

 In one trial, 40 people were split into two groups, one receiving gotu kola, and the other receiving placebo, to determine the effect on anxiety. The gotu kola significantly decreased anxiety within 30-60 minutes when compared to placebo.
