Adrenal Support Tea
It is the beginning of a New Year, and I want to lessen the stress of the former.
Confession time, I am a workaholic, who puts family and especially my children first. That is what I always tell students who fall behind, “Family first” and “Life happens.”
So this year I am going to try to have a more structured life. I am going to support my nervous system better and support myself better. I think this is a good goal, and something we can all do better.
This year I will:
I am going to read more, rest more, and laugh more.
Here is a simple tea recipe for adrenal support; it is also best for the end of the day. It will promote relaxation and sleep, hopefully leading to an excellent nights sleep, one of the best ways to improve a healthy nervous system.
These are western herbs, and most should be available locally.
Ten signs your adrenals or overburdened you have adrenal fatigue:
- Having a hard time falling or staying asleep, even when you are tired. You may also not feel rested upon waking.
- The carb/sugar cravings are off the charts. You may find yourself only being satisfied by salty carbs or sugary sweets.
- By 3 or 4 pm you have no energy left, you want a sweet or a little extra caffeine.
- You feel irritable or experience anger quickly or more often than you want to or feel you should. “Wow, I blew that out of proportion.”
- The weight just won’t come off, or it just keeps piling on, mostly around your middle. When I am feeling stressed, this is often my first sign, even if I am not eating due to stress.
- You find yourself sick, a lot more than ever before. Every virus that comes around makes a stop at your door.
- You are feeling blue or depressed or more anxious.
- Your hormones are bouncing around like a super ball. Libido (low), fertility, period issues may appear out of nowhere.
- You no longer recognize your digestive system. Can’t digest fats, vegetables, feeling like you have sensitivities to foods you love.
- You find you are in a haze, unable to focus or can’t remember things the way you used too.
