Covid-19 is messing with our Adrenal Glands!

Hello and thank you for visiting.

Our Adrenal Glands are located on the top of each Kidney.

Nothing effects our Adrenal Glands more than stress!

When our Adrenal Glands are stressed and fatigued, it causes numerous problems with our body.





5-Chronic fatigue

6-High Blood Pressure

This is how they work. Our Adrenal glands produce Cortisol, which controls our metabolism, and helps our body respond to stress.

Exercise is not the best solution, which is many deficiencies is one of the best options for healing.

During this time of the Covid-19 crisis, I think many of us are suffering from the impact of our restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus.

Here are some tips to help keep our Adrenal Glands functioning properlly

1-Have lab work to determine Adrenal functions.

2-Go on a 90 day reset diet which consists of more vegetables, and nutrition based proteins: beans, eggs, nuts, seeds, seafood, soy, and lean meats.

3-Eat green super foods: Kale, Spinach, broccoli arugula, snap peas, collardgreens are some of the best ones.

4-Vitamins, especially the B vitamins, B-6, B-12, vitamin C, and E.

5-Minerals such as Calcium, and Magnesium Seleninem, which has a calming effect.

Right now it is hard to find these nutritious vegetables, and we dont want to hoard and then waste them.

Remember that frozen vegetables are flash frozen and just as good as purchasing frest. They have the same nutritional value.

You can also add these veggies to a blender and make some delicious healthy meals.

Stress, it’s a killer…

Stress, is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.

Having Stress…yes we all do, it can be a good thing, that keeps you on your toes, but when it becomes to much, it can become debilitation.

The moment we become more self-aware and begin to realize the way we react to daily stress, improvement can begin. The first step is knowing that thinking is a physical act.- ” Dr. Thomas Hanna

How We manage Stress is important.
There are many life challenges that cause Stress:
Job loss
Chronic Illness
The Effect that Stress has on your body:
High Blood Pressure
Weight Gain
Heart Problems

Nutrition, such as vitamin C is helpful during times of stress. Eat a well balanced diet to support the adrenal gland, such as whole grains, legumes, cauliflower, broccoli, salmon and sweet potatoes. Chinese ginseng, vitamin B6, Zinc, magnesium and Potassium for adrenal support, eat a banana. Avoid excess caffeine, and cigarette smoke.

Sound, can have a positive impact on the Nervous System.
Listening to natural sounds such as waves crashing, forest noises, the “Ocean and Birdsongs” music, and Classical Music or the Ballet.

Smell, is also helpful. The olfactory system has an immediate affect on both the physiological and psychological bodies. Essential oils that are calming such as Lavender is an aromatic smell that helps to relieve stress. Smells that remind you of past and present calming memories. I love smelling a bonfire, fireplace, and freshly cut grass in the summertime. Reminds me of my childhood. Flowers, take a deep breath, its helpful in reliving Stress!

Sight, is probably something that you couldn’t imaging helping with Stress, but it does. Color helps when dealing with Stress. Calming neutral colors such as, greens, and blues, and warm harmonious colors will help. Visual images of positive thoughts through meditation, and yoga. Surround yourself with people that love and support you.. then, go watch a funny movie with them!!!

Exercise, I can not tell you how often exercise has helped me cope with stressful situations in my life. It really helps. Try just walking, yoga, running, aerobic exercises, and also swimming. Exercise increases the secretion of endorphins which leads to feelings of euphoria and creates fewer negative thoughts, which relieve the effects of Stress.

Stress will wear our bodies and our mental state down!! If you are feeling overwhelmed about a situation that you are experiencing, maybe see a therapist, try exercising, listen to your favorite tunes, and hang out with people who love you. You are not alone..I have been there many times, but learning coping skills will help you through it all.

Walking to improve your health
Go the distance. Find a partner or go it alone, family, pets or friends.
By some good supportive walking shoes. Studies show that even a small amount of brisk walking can improve your health. Walk at
any age-20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s…..
Walking is the most inexpensive exercise that you can do. It is a great time to reflect and meditate.
Wake up your walking muscles to burn more calories. Skip stretching, just mimic walking in place. Fuel your walk: eat a light carbohydrate rich snack such as a banana or yogurt 20 minutes before lacing up! Why? It pre
vents blood sugars from dropping. After you walk, eat a complex carbohydrate, protein combo, veggies, chicken, salmon, and or black beans.

What happens when you walk?
Your heart rate revs up from about 70 to 100 beats per minute (bpm), warming the muscles, the joints then release a lubricating fluid and you burn on average 5 calories per minute. This is compared to 1 per minute at rest.
Your heart rate increases to about 140 bpm’s. You are now burning 6 calories per minute, and your blood vessels expand to release heat. You then start to sweat. Your body releases hormones, and endorphins.
Insulin, which helps store fat, drops, as you burn more fat.
Your body will continue to burn calories up to 1 hour after your walk.

The Benefits of Walking.
Walking gives you energy.
Burns fat which helps you lose weight
Reduces stress
Strengthens your muscles and bones.
Improves your heart health, and can help lower cholesterol
Reduces your risk of diabetes.
Improves your lungs
Builds immunity to diseases.
Increases flexibility of muscles and range of joint motion.

Go take a nice long walk! Start the New Year off right with a healthy routine.

Hello and thank you for visiting ❤️

The Coronavirus it a big deal, it’s spreading like a wildfire. It is our responsibility to protect ourselves against this contagious virus.

The CDC has posted and reported many ways to protect ourselves against this fast spreading virus.

Here are the latest reports from the CDC on ways to protect ourselves.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

We must take responsibility for our own health, and One way that we can do this is to support our immune system.

There are many ways to stimulate our natural immune system.

One way is to avoid alcohol and smoking.

Here is my plan:

1-In the morning, while getting your shower, stimulate your lymph nodes, by washing into your armpits, groin, and neck areas.

2Dry brushing is another option in stimulating the immune system. Start with an appropriate brush on dry skin, brush upward from your ankles to your thighs. Finish the process with a massage of cold press coconut oil.

3-Exercise. Do something every day to elevate your metabolism. It only has to be 20 minutes.. it will still stimulate your immune system.

4-Eat a clean diet of vegetables, herbs, and protein, especially fish. Add to your diet:

Dark colored fruits, such as blueberries, blackberries, cherries, etc. and vegetables, purple cabbage, onions, zinc, vitamin C, bone broth, with garlic. Best guide line is to eat the colors of the rainbow!

5-Reduce stress in your life.. Exercise will help!

Surround yourself with happiness..children, family and friends.❤️
