We’ll seed-cycle for our hormones
We’ll take 98 different supplements
But we won’t remove the stressors in our daily lives…
While you work on doing the do, I want to give you a solution to help combat stress, gain natural energy, & focus more on the things you gotta get done…
Adaptogens support your adrenal glands which manage your hormonal response to stress & help you cope with anxiety/fatigue.
They include herbs such as ashwaganda, wolfberry, eleuthero root, rhodiola, schizandra, etc
So when your cortisol is sky high or hitting rock bottom, these herbs help to bring your levels back to baseline – they work with YOU specifically, adapting their function to your body’s needs.
See, our cortisol levels follow a daily rhythm – highest in the morning (cortisol awakening response) & then slowly decrease through the day & lowest before bed
Your hypothalamus & adrenal glands are responsible for this intricate diurnal rhythm to wake you up in the am & let you sleep in the pm.
But if we push the limits of our adrenals & force it to overproduce cortisol throughout the day, we risk disrupting this cortisol curve.
Why should we care to keep cortisol in it’s ideal range?
HERE ARE JUST A FEW HEALTH PROBLEMS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH CHRONICALLY HIGH CORTISOL LEVELS:
-causes IBS & leaky gut (resulting in food sensitivities & autoimmunity)
-impairs our immune system (we get sick more often)
-prolongs healing & repair (pro-inflammatory)
-impairs brain & cognitive function (brain fog & memory impairment)
-increases oxidative stress (by impacting the ETC in mitochondria)
-inhibits detoxification process is in the liver & kidneys (by changing gene expression in the detoxification pathway)
-raises blood pressure, blood sugar, & insulin (leading to metabolic syndrome)
