Your Adrenals


Your #adrenalglands are arguably one of the most hard-working organs in the body. They not only manage the stress handling system, but they also play a vital role in #sexhormones, #energy and vitality, #blood sugar, #immunity and the ability to have a sense of well-being. They produce #antiaging support and play a part in inflammation and fluid balance. Stress can affect their function in monumental ways. While conventional medicine only recognizes #addisonsdisease and #cushingsdisease as adrenal disorders requiring treatment, the adrenals often struggle unnoticed for years with symptoms ranging from #hormonebalance, to #fatigue, to trouble sleeping, to an inability to handle stress, to a suppressed immune system. People with adrenal struggles are often told they have thyroid issues, only to discover their thyroid is technically within normal range. There are a myriad of ways to support the adrenals. The best place to start is in the gut. Pathogens inhabiting the gut and food sensitivities compromise GI function and cue the immune system and the adrenals to react. One of the best ways to alleviate stress on the adrenals is to identify GI pathogens and food sensitivities, which not only dramatically increases absorption of vital nutrients and improves overall health, but also alleviates the immune system and adrenals from constantly having to exert energy to deal with these GI threats. Often, issues related to the adrenals are quickly improved when gut healing and food sensitivities are identified and resolved. #ishbelwell #adrenalhealth #gastrointestinal #gihealth
