A lot of people are now increasingly becoming aware of adrenal fatigue and are bent on treating this condition. Since adrenal fatigue is all about feeling overly tired and stressed, treating it is fairly simple. Under normal circumstances, you don't have to undergo complicated tests and therapies, and much more importantly, you don't have to spend a lot of money. If you are treating adrenal fatigue, here are some tips you can take into account.
- Understand the symptoms. Excessive tiredness is the primary symptom of adrenal fatigue, but it is also characterized by other symptoms such as poor digestion, weight gain, depression, concentration difficulty, upper back pain, low sex drive, imbalances in blood sugar level, and low blood pressure. In other cases, palpitation, hypoglycemia, thinning and drying of skin, hair loss, dyspepsia, and nervousness are also apparent.
- Arrange your schedule. A messed-up schedule is stressful and can contribute to the development of adrenal fatigue. Therefore, begin to organize your schedule so that you can have a balanced time for work and play. Get a journal or a big calendar and make a schedule. Make sure to prioritize the important events-meetings, family gatherings, conventions, and your kid's recital. If you have spare time, you can always squeeze in the not-so important events.
- Love your body. Admit it, it is easy to overlook your body, pushing it to the limit until it tires down. But that's exactly why you experience adrenal fatigue. The more you push it, the more stressed it becomes, and the result is an excessively tired body. Therefore, know when you need to rest. If your body calls for a rest, stop whatever it is you are doing and keep your body and mind relaxed.
- Involve your family. Explain what adrenal fatigue is to your family so that when they see you lowly and tired, they can help you feel better. Your spouse might stop nagging and your kids might stop complaining. They can also help you follow a dietary plan. Your family's full understanding of the condition, in other words, can make them easy on you.
- Find a support group. It is much easier to deal with your condition if you have a support group. The support group, which should be compromised of people who are undergoing the same thing, can encourage you, give you relevant tips, and provide you with inspiration. Look in the Internet to find a support group. It can be in the form of an online forum, a social networking account, or a website. If you can't find one, consider starting your own.
- Work with a doctor. Even if adrenal fatigue is not as dangerous as other conditions, medical supervision is necessary. A doctor can monitor your progress and address other conditions that might co-exist or trigger your adrenal fatigue.
You have a responsibility to your body. At all costs, you have to exert extra effort to get it in good shape. So if you feel like the adrenal fatigue is kicking in, do everything you can to make your body feel better again.
