Can food effect adrenal fatigue and symptoms? I sometimes feel really aweful or really good depending on foods I eat. Mainly in respect to feeling tired or not.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  Adrenal Glands a tough question. I would refer you to your physician on that one.

I am not a professional.

loxleynew,
Feeling tired after eating carbs can be a symptom of diabetes. You might need a complete physical to figure this one out. Why not start a food diary and track the times when you are feeling off.

I have just read a great book
where Adrenal Fatigue is talked about....

1. What causes adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue occurs when our adrenal glands, which produce the hormones cortisol, DHEA and adrenalin, are compromised.
*****Stress is the primary cause.
The stress may be emotional, physical, psychological, environmental, infectious or any combination of these.
Regardless of the source, your adrenal glands respond to the stress in the same way. Whether a series of smaller stresses such as unhappy relationships, pressure at work or a bout of the flu or a major event such as the death of someone you love or a serious illness, if the stresses occur simultaneously, build up or become chronic, then we put pressure on our adrenals to pump out ever increasing volume of our stress hormones.
Over time, the adrenals can no longer keep up and their function slows. Other organs and biological systems may be affected, including our metabolism, sex drive and cardiovascular systems.
Is there anything I can do about it?

Whether you are currently suffering from adrenal fatigue or hoping to reduce your risk of developing its symptoms, there are a number of things you can do yourself:

• Manage stress more effectively: Find out what triggers stress in your life then learn how to get it under control before it’s too late. Try hiking, meditation or journal writing. Or, take a stress management course through a therapist or online.

• Rest: Aim for seven to nine hours of sleep each night. Although it may make you feel like you’re 10 years old again, set a regular bed time and develop rituals to help your body and mind realize that it’s time to wind down for the night.

• Eat well: Diet is a major contributor to stress. Limit your intake of alcohol, caffeine and carbodhydrates while increasing your consumption of essential fatty acids. EFA
If you don’t already do so, take a high-quality multivitamin daily.

• Exercise: Though it may feel like the last thing you want to do, exercise is very beneficial to the adrenal glands. It will also help you sleep better. Start slowly and work up to 30 minutes a day of some type of moderate intensity exercise. You may find yoga and pilates particularly beneficial as they provide both mental and physical benefits.

RE" FOods we eat

I used to feel like crashing.... sleeping... or get head aches
Adrenal fatigue is also linked to diabetes.. and cancer....

The past 3 weeks I ahve had very sore kidneys...
yesterdayafter a reflexology treatment I was asking... myself... why...
the word adrenal fatigue came to my mind....
and makes sense..
sometimes we need to hep[ them to rest
detox,.. juice.....
eat in a way which helps liver, kidneys...
ask a naturaopathic practictioner... You will get great advice
yeah

Hi Loxelynew,

I've been recovering from adrenal fatigue for over two years, and food has a HUGE impact on how you feel and how fast you recover! Yes, I could feel it immediately if I'd eaten something bad OR good for me.

I recommend Dr. James Wilson's book Adrenal Fatigue: The 21-Century Stress Syndrome. It spells out exactly what foods (and drinks) will help you recover, how and when to eat them, and what to avoid. The goal is to cut out all sweets, caffeine, and alcohol, and eat mostly whole grains and veggies, with a little fruit later in the day. You will feel so much better, and eventually GET better!
