Using Stimulation To Your Advantage
By Brendan Brazier • May 24th, 2010 • 15705 Views
One of the main attributes of a healthy diet should be adequate energy provided by nourishment, without the need to artificially stimulate the adrenals to gain it. This, along with simply being properly rested by getting efficient sleep (because of a reduction in stress, obtainable though better diet), will prevent a spiral such as this from developing.
If fatigue is consistently a problem for you and you crave stimulating foods such as cacao as well as cooked foods, chances are your adrenals need nourishing back to health. The best way in which to do this is by recalibrating with basic whole, plant-based foods. A beneficial food for nourishing the adrenal glands as opposed to stimulating them is a root vegetable called maca. I include 2.5 grams of it in my blender drink each day to maintain strong adrenal function. 2.5 grams is all that’s needed and the amount that is in each serving of Vega Whole Food Meal Replacement, the formula that I developed for peak health and to recover from adrenal fatigue.
