It’s dark and gloomy here, and I’m in my jammies (because I’m professional like that). If you’re lucky, you are too. Let’s sit down and have a chat about one of the ‘secrets’ of my nutritional therapy practice.
One of the things I find myself repeatedly saying to people is that our energy centers need to be supported during gut healing.
But what does that mean?
So often, I hear the story that someone read a slew of articles or very popular book and decided to cut starches and grains from their diet to heal a leaky gut. They are now dealing with significant – or severe – adrenal hypofunction and usually accompanying thyroid hypofunction.
- cold extremities
- inner trembling
- increased brain fog
- moderate to severe fatigue
are just a few of the most common symptoms of the stress to these all-important glands.
It puts massive strain on the body and can easily cause full adrenal fatigue. Pardon my phrasing but “die off” my butt. Die off is such a small part of the healing process that this one irks me…a lot.
