💥ADRENAL FATIGUE💥 presents with more than just feeling tired! Symptoms include dry skin, low body temperature, lethargy, mild anxiety, mild depression and difficulty performing daily tasks. 😴
Pictured above is an Oligoscan of a patient under a lot of adrenal stress (low K/Na). Stay tuned to our story today to see how we support stressed adrenals and book in for an Oligoscan with one of our Pharmacists to help fight your own fatigue! 👊
Cheers to living the lifestyle. These are all pictures from today. Painting a house, working out and heading to a baseball game. It's not easy doing all of those things. It's a choice I gladly (and sometimes not so gladly) make every day.
Down 30 pounds in six months.
Loving the Lift and Let Live life!!! The Only Way Out Is Through!!!
The men are gone to either The College World Series or high school batting practice.
And I squat 🍑💪😍
Warm up with 5x5x135 box squats.
Did 135 front squat...I haven't done these in a long time..felt good. But I wanted reps not a max. So dropped weight to 115 did 3 sets of 10
Leg curls, leg press, regular back squats.
You achieve more in life, by doing less some times. I learned this the hard way - going through adrenal fatigue, to burn out and now my whole endocrine system literally crashed - I have learned to take time out. I have learned to rest when I need to. I have learned that the extra weight I am carrying around with me is because I didn’t rest. I ate the right foods, I moved my body, I meditated, but I didn’t rest. So lovelies besides telling you what to eat, how to move your body - the most important thing I can tell you is : REST when you are TIRED 🌺
Today again I was on a mission to help a friend who continuously complained about her Adrenal fatigue coming in her way of enjoying the smallest happiness in life~ playing with her kids and giving them time😥😥!! Enough of all this pain and suffering!! I made a blend of Essential oils ( Cloves, Nutmeg & Rosemary) to help support her Adrenal.
Roller Bottle filled it half way with coconut oil then added
10 drops of cloves EO
20 drops of Nutmeg EO
20 drops of Rosemary EO
It can be applied directly on the Adrenal gland right above the hip on the dimpled spot 😜
A little education on the oils-
These EO are supportive of the adrenals both directly and indirectly as they not only support the adrenals themselves, but also work towards relieving the root causes of your #adrenalburnout whether that be the inability to get enough meaningful sleep, nervous tension, or the inability to fully relax. •Clove EO ~ also known to stimulate healthy circulation, higher energy levels, and relieve fatigue associated with adrenal burnout. It boosts the mood and relieves #stress •Nutmeg EO ~ supports adrenal function by increasing energy and alleviating nervous #fatigue and #chronic symptoms of stress. This gives both #nutmeg and #clove essential oil a step up over other essential oils when treating #adrenalfatigue
Rosemary EO ~ known to rapidly reduce cortisol levels in minutes just by smelling it. This is one of the best ways to help alleviate and control stress in the body.
A little #singletsaturday
My men found the extra singlets from my resolved tribal fitness days. (I'm sure they'll be mad I posted this one)
Mine is from 2016 powerlifting meet. 💪😊❤
Cant wait to shop for a new one!
I know I post about Plexus a lot, but I often fail to address this: #Slim is NOT just a #weightloss product; it is good for any issues that deal with your #hormones ! #Metabolism , #cholesterol , #thyroid , #bloodsugars , #bloodpressure , #pain , you name it! This is the only product I have ever known to do all of this in such a way.
A lot of people message me asking how in the world #Plexus helps with so many different health issues and concerns. It’s because #bloodsugar instability, #inflammation , and poor #guthealth are the root cause of so many health issues 😷
Instead of addressing the #root problem, most of the time we end up treating symptoms with #prescriptions 💊, which have their OWN #sideeffects , thus creating MORE issues to deal with.
The most common root problems people experience are as I mentioned: inflammation, poor gut health, and blood sugar instability. Until these problems are addressed, it’s hard to see good health results.
The Slim (my #pinkdrink ) addresses blood sugar instability and inflammation. The #BioCleanse and #ProBio5 address poor gut health. This is why I always recommend the #TriPlex combo 👊
Plexus Slim is my little pink drink I take first thing in the morning. It helps stabilize my blood sugars throughout the day, which in turn helps me have more energy. Stable blood sugar levels also mean LESS STRESS on the body!! Less #stress means less inflammation, less raised #cortisol or #adrenal fatigue. Less stress means healthier blood pressure, cholesterol, and #lipids . Myself and others have reported having increased #energy , better sleep, fewer cravings for sugar/snacks, and weight loss.
THIS is what makes Plexus different than everything else. THIS is why I believe in this company 100% and will continue to use these products and post about them! 💖
STRESSED? HORMONES OUT OF WHACK?
My friend uses this for menopause with good results. It has helped her pain in joints, hormone imbalance, sleep issues, mood issues, and inability to lose weight. It does it naturally, no fillers, man made medicines, and such. It comes from a natural root. This brand is made with veggie capsules, that are easily digestible. This natural remedy helps with stress and your adrenal system. It can be used by men and women alike. You take three a day, so it is a one month supply at 90 capsules per bottle. It runs $14.99, or $14.24 if you use the subscribe and save, on Amazon. It is $12.79 on Ebay. I had great results too. Natural is always better!
What is the Adrenal Test? . 👉 The Adrenal Test is a saliva collection test that provides a personal scope on your individual cortisol fluctuations throughout the day to help you better understand the time at which cortisol is highest and when it dips in order to provide a better indication of how your adrenals are functioning over the course of your everyday activities. .
✔️ In your kit you will receive: 4 x 5ml collection tubes.
✔️ What to do: Over the course of the day collect 5ml of saliva and label the Tube with the date and time: .
✖️ 1 x collection upon waking. .
✖️ 1 x collection at noon. .
✖️ 1 x collection late afternoon. .
✖️ 1 x collection before bed. .
It is best to keep all samples frozen after collection until you are ready to post them off in the handy little postage bag included in your kit. Be sure to collect all samples over the course of the same day for better accuracy. Once you have shipped the samples off, your results will return within 5-7 days of the lab receiving them. .

Can we take a moment to talk about #adrenal health? I know yesterday I posted about my Free T3 finally being up to par, and today I want to talk about the standard of care for adrenal health. A few months back, my traditional doctor tested my #cortisol to find my levels plummeted. I was so stressed out from major life changes and events, and all I was told was "there's no known treatment for 'slightly' low cortisol levels." I felt so defeated and destroyed. I finally decided to get a grip on my #health and take matters into my own hands. I took my results to a #functionalmedicine practitioner and she immediately knew what to do. But, more than that, she gave a shit. Here we are today, after following my treatment plan for stage four #adrenalfatigue (and yes, I believe it's a real thing seeing as how I experienced it). My levels are perfect. It also shows in my mental health these days. I actually feel #happy and #healthy . #adrenalfatiguerecovery#adrenalfatiguesurvivor
Falei ontem, e a amiga @drarenatamachado também falou sobre o cortisol. Vale a pena a leitura!

🔺🔺O post de hoje será dedicado ao Cortisol, conhecido como o hormônio do estresse, produzido pelas Glândulas 🔺Adrenais ou Suprarrenais, importantíssimo para que estejamos preparados para as situações de perigo.
Algumas de suas funções são:
✅controle da pressão arterial,
✅ redução da produção de substâncias que causam inflamações
✅regulação da produção de glicose no sangue
✅bom funcionamento do sistema imunológico
✅controle do estresse em situações limite
✅redução da queima calórica, para poupar energia em caso de necessidade.
A quantidade de Cortisol liberado pelas Adrenais, é controlada pela Hipófise, a glândula “mãe” localizada no nosso cérebro. 👉🏻Situações de estresse físico 🤒ou emocional😡 são interpretadas como PERIGO e há aumento do cortisol para ajudar o corpo a responder ao stress (luta ou fuga)
Se as taxas de cortisol se mantiverem altas por um stress crônico, há aumento de risco de ☑️diabetes, ☑️hipertensão arterial, ☑️acúmulo de gordura abdominal e ☑️depressão.
Quando ha produção exagerada se do cortisol por Síndrome ou Doença de Cushing a clínica é bem mais complexa e merece um Post especial amanhã! Até lá 😘

“The first wealth, is health" - RWE
I'm no professional, but I'd put myself in the athlete category. THREE marathons in three months, I don't know anyone that crazy!! 😵 I sustained an intense level of training without injury. My last #marathon was different than the rest though. Two days after #running it, and I was back at the gym getting my burn on (recovery magic) ✌🏽❤️
My workouts changed when I started to supplement!! My favorite product is the pink drink that helps #balance out my insulin and cortisol levels. This has helped enormously with #adrenal fatigue. For others, it helps with their weight loss goals. I love their probiotic. If you don't understand the importance of gut health, read the book #Brainmaker , and you'll be on this #probiotic you're entire life. 🤔
I'm a huge fan of their #magnesium supplement which helps with full body oxygenation and cleanses arterial and gastrointestinal tracts. What sold me was their vitamin. It has a never-before-seen formulation of a patented aloe blend and New Zealand Blackcurrant of which results in vastly improved absorption and delivers several B vitamins, vitamins D, C and E, the #antioxidant protection. All #athletes supplement, smart athletes supplement with all natural plant based products!! In addition to all of that, at my last Endo visit a couple weeks ago, my Doctor told me I'd need to be on 500mg of #Metformin , FOREVER. 😭 He also said if I ever planned to get pregnant, I'd have to go on insulin immediately, again.
I started religiously tracking my sugars. (I used to not care as much. #Rebel )Fasting sugars had never been over 100. When I dropped to a 77 last week, I thought I would tempt fate and not take my Metformin. Just to see. #inquiringminds 74 for my morning test!
I value doctors, but I also know my body. I fight for myself because no one else will. Don't take prescriptions without asking questions and doing your own research, and don't stop taking any #prescription with without talking to your doctor first"
This sweet mama has been on #thyroid meds for 15 years! But... not anymore! With the help of the same natural supplements I take, and being consistent with it every day, she was able to completely get off her thyroid meds! 🙌🏻 At 30 years old, she feels better than she has ever felt before! 👩🏼⚕️Nurse, Megan Ashley, explains why Slim helps SO many people with thyroid dysfunction: "A deficiency in Chromium can cause an imbalance of the blood sugar levels, which in turn will affect the adrenal glands. Compromised #adrenal glands can slow down the thyroid gland thus leading to #hypothyroid problems. In addition adrenal issues can affect the immune system, which can potentially trigger an immune response, which can lead to Grave’s Disease or #Hashimotos Thyroiditis. While having a chromium deficiency alone is unlikely to cause an #autoimmune disease, it can be a contributing factor. Chromium is one of the main ingredients in Plexus Slim. It helps with blood sugar imbalances by helping to metabolize glucose and help increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin. By balancing the blood sugar, we can decrease sugar and carb cravings, as well as slow down weight gain and even begin to lose weight that has been so difficult before! This is just one of the many ways Plexus can help get your life and health back on track!” #momsonamission#betterhealth#momlifeisthebestlife#feelingyounger#healthyasever#boymom#momsunite
