Adrenal Fatigue Treatment Australia – Adrenally Fatigued Or Just Tired? Where Are You?
Adrenal fatigue is becoming more common in today’s fast-paced world. Heard the term a few times and wondering what it is and if you might have it?
Constantly exhausted and dragging yourself through the day, relying on jolts of caffeine, sugar and energy drinks to get you through – morning, mid-morning and mid-afternoon? This is a sign your cortisol is too low early in the day, when it should be at it’s highest. It’s meant to wake you up full of life.
Needing a stiff drink after work to quell the overwhelm, help you relax and get you through the family dinner-bedtime routine? This is a sign your cortisol levels are too high for this time of day and don’t allow for a restful night’s sleep.
Been to the doctor’s saying “why am I so tired?” They run a few labs and do a quick physical. No obvious results come back and you’re told everything’s fine. Perhaps come back in a few months if it doesn’t improve.
Not working for you? You’re not alone.
I have a different approach to Adrenal Fatigue Treatment Australia. I detect the early signs of your body struggling, before you get deep into adrenal fatigue. Why wait until you hit rock bottom? Uncovering the root causes is vital to great long term results.
Your tiny adrenal glands sit on top of your kidneys, to each side of your lower back. They’re responsible for regulating the stress response through the making of cortisol and adrenaline. In our busy, chronically stressed-out lives, our bodies are pumping out cortisol on a continual basis. We simply aren’t meant to function that way, and it can wear us down and burn us out. To add fuel to the fire, we tend to live on a diet of sugary, processed foods and caffeine. The stress, sugar and caffeine overload can wear down the adrenals as well.
So how do you know if your adrenals are fatigued?
Here is a summary of the stages of stress to help you identify if this is you:

Caught yourself saying, “where the hell did I park the car again?”, “what did I come into this room for?”, “where did I put my keys?” of late.

Everything seems so much harder!
Brain fog isn’t a medical condition itself, but rather a symptom of other medical conditions. It’s a type of cognitive dysfunction – Health Line

Explore Natural Remedies for Digestion and Bloating – Stomach Feel Not Quite Right? Here Could Be 7 Reasons Why.
Have you caught yourself lately, thinking or saying things like…..
“Oh, my stomach has never felt quite right since that last trip to Bali”, “I just seem to get bloated every time I eat these days”, “I don’t know what it is, but something gives me a gut ache and I’ve put up with it for a year now”…..
Gas and bloating occur as a natural result of the body’s digestion breaking down food. When gas does not leave the body through burping or flatulence, it builds up in the digestive tract and leads to bloating. – Wiki How

7 Ways To Get Unstuck & Start Living The Life You Want
Living The Life You Want – Stuck…….we’ve all been there at some stage. We all know what it feels like. That rising inner feeling of stagnation, immobilization and even oppression. We feel uncomfortable, sad and down. We talk of “I have to… “ and “I should… “ and it is heavy with the energy of obligation.
We’re secretly waiting for something to happen: a lucky break or a miracle. We wonder if a higher power is watching us, or if the winds of change will move in our favor. We do this, instead of embracing the change that needs to occur within us.
Being stuck serves as fertile ground for transformation to occur. It tells us that change is needed – an internal change. It could be a change of heart, change of priorities or even a change of perspective. When we are stuck we are being invited to grow and expand. What worked before doesn’t work anymore and it’s up to us to see where we can let go and open.
Ghandi reminds us, “Be the change you want to see.”
It’s easy to forget that we are the change agent, and that all change begins within us.
What are you resisting? What can you do to get unstuck and back into the flow of life? It’s time to start Living The Life You Want.
Reducing Bloated Belly – Bloated Belly? 9 Tips To Losing The Bloat
Reducing Bloated Belly – Feel gassy…..like you’ve gained 5 kilos in the past two days?
Well, you are not alone. It is a common topic in my clinic.
30% of people regularly experience bloating, so it is quite common.
It is usually caused by excess gas production, and/or disturbances in the movement of the muscles of the digestive system – Health Line
Fortunately, you can avoid that feeling with a few simple precautions or investigations.
1. Don’t freak out
Stress hormones speed up everything in your body, shunting blood supply to your muscles rather than digestion. Food not properly broken down ferments producing gas and bloating.
So, take a deep breath, relax ……maybe add regular meditation or exercise to your daily routine.
2. Don’t eat and run
When you eat in a hurry your body will not be focused on digestion and will struggle to break food down cleanly.
So, before you eat…RELAX, chew food well, take the time to enjoy ……10-15 minutes each meal is such a small part of your day.
3. Avoid constipation
Constipation can exacerbate bloating symptoms. Increased magnesium intake, adequate water intake and physical activity can be effective against constipation.
4. Cut back on sugar-free gum
… sweets and other foods containing artificial sweeteners like sorbitol and aspartame, which aren’t digestible and trigger bloating.
Opt for real foods…..munch on a pear or carrot.
5. Don’t eat too much at once – Reducing Bloated Belly this step is the most effective.
If you have a tendency to bloating you will experience discomfort from a smaller amount of food compared to someone who doesn’t.
So smaller meals can help considerably.
6. Avoid consuming gas producing foods and beverages
Major players for some are…… beans, lentils, whole grains and carbonated drinks.
Try keeping a food diary to figure out if certain foods tend to make you more gassy and/or bloated than others.
Fatty foods can slow digestion and emptying of the stomach. This can be a problem for people with a tendency to bloat.
So test eating fewer beans and fatty foods to see if it helps.
7. Consume digestive aid
Digestive enzymes with a meal or apple cider vinegar (1 tablespoon to little water) before meals can aid you stomach to cleanly digest food and prevent fermentation and gas production.
8. Watch the raw veggies
Raw produce can be tough for your body to break down at certain times.
So cooking vegetables makes them easier for your stomach to handle.
9. Rule out food intolerances or fructose malabsorption.
Both these conditions can produce excess gas production, bloating.
