7 Steps To Feeling Better Than Ever – The Magic Of Beating Adrenal Fatigue

The Magic of Beating Adrenal Fatigue, by Chris “the Kiwi” Ashenden

October 2013, Elway’s Steakhouse – Denver, Colorado

In town to catch up with my mate Isabel for the first time in ages, I was invited out to dinner with a large group of her friends.

Happiness is meeting cool new people, always.

Sitting at an enormous round table of twelve in this massive steakhouse, I felt like one of the Knights of the Round Table, right down to the heaping plates of steaming meat and the huge variety of green vegetables that were being passed around. An eclectic and amusing bunch, I enjoyed catching up with Isabel.

We both stopped talking at the same time as we heard the two people next to us starting a health-based conversation. (We love this stuff!)

“So the Doctor told me nothing was wrong with me,” continued Sarah (we will call her Sarah) a nice lady in her early 40’s with a smiling face but dark tired circles under her eyes, “yet I still feel exhausted.”

“Did the Doctor get you to do any blood work?” Isabel asked from beside me.

“Yes,” said Sarah “he did a standard blood panel, but he said it all came back normal.”

“What are your symptoms?” I asked Sarah.

“I am tired all the time, especially in the morning when I don’t seem to have any get up and go.  Lack of motivation and enjoyment of life. My mood seems down, compared to before. I can’t lose the weight I put on after my last pregnancy; if anything, I seem to be getting fatter, but I know I’m eating right. I have some intense cravings, especially for sweets, I am foggy most of the time, I get sick a lot, my digestion seems to be all over the place, I have no idea where my sex-drive has gone and I have difficulty staying awake at night.”

“Basically, I am ok but I feel exhausted” she said.

Isabel and I looked at each other. Isabel looked back at Sarah.

“I think you have adrenal fatigue” said Isabel.  

I nodded wisely – “Ditto”.

“Really?” said Sarah, perking up, “it would be great to know what I am dealing with. But what is it?”

***************************

 

Adrenal fatigue is newly coined term to describe life in the modern hell we call civilization.  And when we say adrenal fatigue, we are really referring to a major mess up in the Hypothalamic–Pituitary–Adrenal axis (HPA Axis).

Not enough quality sleep, lots of stress, not enough down time. A nutrient deficient diet. Too often reaching for caffeine or sugar just to keep going.

All of these lead us straight down the gurgler. Your two small adrenal glands that sit on top of your kidneys are primarily responsible for three important hormones – adrenaline (as it is commonly known), cortisol, and DHEA.

Now, your adrenals are in a love relationship with your body. If your body keeps asking your adrenals to give and give and give, and yet the adrenals never receive anything in return, how do you think that relationship is going to turn out?

How has that type of relationship worked out for any of us in the past? It doesn’t, stuff breaks, people feel miserable.

Well, it is the same thing with adrenal fatigue.

You likely have some form of adrenal fatigue if you experience any of the following

  • Your energy levels are “inferior”
  • You have “weight that won’t move” issues
  • You have low or no libido
  • You have ongoing digestive problems
  • You have mood swings or find that you smile a lot less than you used to
  • You get allergies or sick more often – your immune system is out of whack
  • You don’t feel refreshed after sleeping or have issues sleeping
  • You don’t seem to recover from workouts any more

If you are feeling 5, 4, or 3 out of 10, instead of 9 or 10 out of 10 (as you deserve to), then you are probably on the path to adrenal fatigue.

Alright KIWI, HOW DO WE FIX IT?

Mate, I thought you’d never ask.

 

Seven Steps to Beat Adrenal Fatigue

 

Step 1:  Stop Taking – Give your Body MORE Sleep

Get more of it, and make it better quality. Go to bed earlier, ideally at the same time every night, sleep in a pitch black room, and try to avoid stimulants as discussed below, or looking at back lit screens (like your computer) late in the day.

Your new quote to live by “Defend Your Sleep At Gunpoint”!

 

Step 2:  Stop Taking – Say NO To Adrenal Abusing Stimulants (for a while)

This means limit COFFEE, ALL “energy drinks” (skip those for life if you want to look good naked), dark chocolate, and caffeine-containing teas or any beverages. All of which place demands on your adrenal glands.

Now listen up, I love coffee as much as the next person, but if it is not helping you, it is hurting you. Here is what we are going to do:

Starting from the moment you read this (cough cough, that would be NOW), I want you to HALVE your current coffee, tea, or dark chocolate intake.

That applies for one full week.

Second week, you are going to go down to ONE coffee per day, always before 12 noon. You can have two cups of green tea in a day instead of coffee, or three cups of black tea in a day instead of coffee, but all before midday. No dark chocolate after 12 noon.

Third week, no coffee. One green tea or one decaf coffee, before 12. Plus one very weak black tea in the afternoon but you must have it weak and early in the afternoon.

My preference for all this is no coffee and moving to black tea.

If you don’t feel dramatically different after week three and are not sleeping better, you then you must go cold turkey for 30 days on all stimulants.

For advanced adrenal fatigue – you can do one week at half dose but after that you MUST go cold turkey on stimulants for a full 30 days.

Don’t worry, it is not forever, and you will thank me afterwards.
Step 3: Stop Taking – Practice the art of STRESS reduction

Learn how to say no, walk away from people or situations that stress you out, and devote 10 to 30 minutes each day on YOU time. This could be a walk outdoors, a yoga class, watching the sunset, or some meditation.

Studies suggest that being outdoors in nature and enjoying companionable time with friends and loved ones, ideally with lots of touching, hugs, and cuddles are your two biggest winners.

 

SIDE NOTE: Understanding “Stressors”

Please understand that even in regular life there are less obvious positive and negative stressors.

Frequently, the difference between what might normally be a positive stressor and misery from a negative stressor can be the dose and frequency.

Exercise is a great example of a “stressor” where you are looking for a positive hormonal and metabolic response. Too much or the wrong type of exercise, and we experience fatigue, burn-out, injury and the wrong hormonal response (we get beat up, tired, and chubby). Too little, and we don’t adapt. The devil is in the dose, the right dose, FOR YOU.

If you are currently exercising often then for the period you are fighting your adrenal fatigue I recommend getting at most two or three short weights sessions in a week (nothing to failure), maybe a dance class or two with lots of laughter, with the rest of your exercise coming from relaxed walks outdoors and relaxing exercise such as yoga.

Eating timing and frequency: Until you are ahead of the adrenal fatigue curve I HIGHLY recommend that you wake up and immediately eat a real food protein dense breakfast consisting of 30 to 40 grams or more of protein. (Each ounce of animal meat/chicken/fish/eggs is roughly 7 grams of protein).  Some find this hard to begin with, but it gets easier with time (try cooking more for dinner and just reheating left-overs in the morning) and the difference in how you feel each day is dramatic.

Periods of fasting are minor stressors on the body, and while in some circumstances, periods of intermittent fasting may be a positive or hormetic stressor, if you are suffering from adrenal fatigue then now is not the time to skip breakfast, go long periods during the day without eating, or lower your calorie intake dramatically – you must eat to satiety, often, each day. Keep protein dense snacks at hand during the day, my favorites are canned tuna or salmon, hard boiled eggs with a dash of curry powder on top.

 

 

Step 4: Make sure you have your NUTRITION and eating dialed right in

Focus on quality proteins and fats, and clean organic fruits and vegetables as the bulk of your diet.

A lifestyle program that follows my recommended 30 Day Reset in my book, “The Complete 30 Day Fat Loss Plan” is an excellent choice. Remove the foods that harm you, and replace them with nutrient dense whole foods that empower your body and your happiness.

If you couple eating well with improving sleep time and quality, and working on stress reduction, these alone can go a whole long way towards fixing adrenal fatigue.

But you must follow it.

Of all the diet and lifestyle programs I have seen, I really like The Complete 30 Day Fat Loss Plan because it takes all the guesswork out.

Less guesswork means better compliance and better results.

 

Step 5: Ensure EXCELLENT micronutrient status

It is vitally important that you have all your micronutrients dialed in, you know, the little guys that actually make EVERYTHING work

I’m telling you to make sure you get enough vitamins and minerals.

You would never plant a rose in a pot of sand and expect it to bloom. You know you need to feed that plant nutrient dense soil (plants need micronutrients too), water, and light.

You are infinitely more complex than any plant. Do not underestimate the power of getting your micronutrient intake right, or the consequences of getting it wrong.

Importantly for adrenal fatigue, beyond eating well, make sure you consume the following micronutrients in sufficient amounts every day:

 

Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid)

Many people know how great vitamin C is for their immune system, but it also has a direct effect on your energy levels. Your body needs vitamin C to make L-carnitine, which helps you burn fat for energy. Importantly , Vitamin C has been shown to induce an anti-inflammatory response to prolonged exercise and stress and mitigate the rise of cortisol and subjective response to physiological stress in human studies. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health reported that fatigue was one of the first signs of vitamin C depletion. In one study, 44 workers received up to 6 grams of vitamin C daily. After two weeks, their fatigue had decreased by almost one-third.

Be sure to eat a variety and lots of fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, kiwi fruit and green leafy vegetables to get vitamin C every single day.

Not all vitamin C  is created equal. If you are going to supplement, stick to food sources for vitamin C and make sure it is accompanied by citrus bioflavonoids, as it is in nature, for the best outcome.

I give my favorite food-sourced vitamin C product recommendation at the bottom of this article.

 

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)

This is an essential vitamin with broad ranging impact. It helps to activate the adrenal glands. Deficiency results in adrenal insufficiencies characterized by fatigue, headaches, sleep disturbances, nausea and abdominal discomfort. Good food sources include clean meats, avocados and broccoli.

 

Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin)

Vitamin B12 is at the core of our body’s ability to make DNA for new cells, form healthy red blood cells, and turn the food we eat into energy to power our metabolism via the ATP pathway.

Data from the Tufts University Framingham Offspring Study suggest that 40 percent of people between the ages of 26 and 83 have plasma B12 levels in the low normal range – a range at which many people begin to experience negative symptoms like exhaustion. Some medical professionals even administer vitamin B12 shots for people who have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.

You can increase your vitamin B12 levels by eating foods like liver (make sure liver is from pasture raised or wild game animals only), meat, seafood, seeds, and mushrooms.

If you are going to supplement, make sure it is the superior form methylcobalamin.

I give my favorite B complex product at the bottom of this article.

 

Magnesium glycinate

Essential to a whole host of bodily functions, researchers at Green Med Info have now detected 3,751 magnesium binding sites on human proteins, indicating that its role in human health and disease may have been vastly underestimated.

Most people I deal with are deficient. It is involved with the production of the enzymes and energy necessary for the adrenal cascade.

Good food sources include seaweed, spices like basil and coriander, cocoa, green leafy vegetables, pumpkin seeds, and salmon.

The most bioavailable supplemental form is magnesium glycinate, a chelated form of magnesium. Beware the other cheaper forms of magnesium as they typically have a laxative effect and very poor absorption.

You guessed it: I give my favorite magnesium glycinate recommendation at the bottom of this article.

 

Step 6: Adaptogens and Herbal Support

With adrenal issues, we almost always start people off with adrenal adaptogens, they are safe and effective.

Adaptogens are a class of compounds that improve your body’s ability to cope with stress over a period of time. My favorites:

 

Black Tea and L-theanine

Your best source of L-theanine is in black tea – simply replace your coffee with black tea. (Make it very weak as per the step above, as tea still contains caffeine, although in smaller amounts than coffee). Two recent well designed studies showed that

  • Consumption of black tea extract led to improved recovery and a reduction in oxidative stress and delayed onset muscle soreness following acute anaerobic intervals.
  • Even better, six weeks of daily black tea consumption lowered post-stress cortisol and resulted in greater subjective relaxation.

Taken daily and early in the day (to avoid affecting sleep), black tea improves your body’s stress levels over time.

Ha! Who would have thought the English could actually have been right about something?!

 

Phosphatidylserine

Phosphatidylserine is a component of cell membranes that is essential for cell repair and maintenance functions. It also inhibits responses to stress, reducing adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) and cortisol levels.

A study examined the effects of supplementation with a complex of containing phosphatidic acid and phosphatidylserine. Just 400mg per day blunted levels of cortisol and ACTH and decreased subjective feelings of distress in response to the Trier Social Stress Test (a mental and emotional stressor).

Taken once or twice daily, quality phosphatidylserine not only helps blunt chronic levels of cortisol, it can also increase neural function and attention, as shown by studies on memory.

 

Ashwaganda, (Withania somnifera)

This ayurvedic super herb has been used for thousands of years in India and Asia as a herbal remedy for stress, anxiety, and immune dysfunction.

Science is catching up and it is looking pretty awesome: Ashwaganda has been shown to improve resistance to stress, improve chronically elevated cortical levels, improve immune function, decrease inflammation and decrease anxiety.

In well designed double blind studies:

  • Using 64 test subjects, ashwaganda extract taken for 60 days by persons in average physical condition with chronic mental stress reduced serum cortisol by 27.9% as well as improved all measured markers of emotional stress.
  • In a study conducted in conjunction between scientists in Utah and India found that 30-60 days supplementation of ashwaganda in subjects with chronic stress and anxiety showed reduction in cortisol levels of over 14%, improvement in serum (blood) biomarkers for stress and inflammation (c-reactive protein) and cardiovascular health (LDL cholesterol) as well as a reduction in anxiety and improvements in well being.

 

Eleuthero, Siberian ginseng, ciwujia (Eleutherococcus senticosus)

Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng or simply Eleuthero, and not to be confused with Panax Ginseng) is perhaps the most heavily used adaptogen in the world.

Popular in Chinese medicine for over a thousand years as a tonic for stress and fatigue, Eleuthero has shown that it can increase resistance to fatigue and improve immunity, with some new studies suggesting it may improve mental health in elderly:

  • Fatigue: Two double blind studies have shown that eleuthro supplementation in fitness training individuals can improve fatigue resistance and increase time to exhaustion.
  • Immunity: In a double-blind placebo controlled study on immunity, eleuthero root was able to increase Natural Killer cell content and T-cell content (helper and cytotoxic) over 4 weeks relative to placebo

 

Rhodiola rosea

The scientific evidence is fairly strong for the anti-fatigue effects of the root extract of this adaptogenic herb. Well-designed studies show that it may reduce stress responses and improve cognitive function, mood and sleep. (Kiwi note: I LOVE THIS STUFF) For example:

  • Supplementation for 28 days reduced cortisol response and fatigue and improved the ability to concentrate in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • In adults with mild to moderate depression, 6 weeks of treatment with Rhodiola extract resulted in significant improvement in overall depression, insomnia, emotional instability and somatization, compared to placebo.

The root extract of Rhodiola is also a potent antioxidant. Overall this is a great adaptogen for people with fatigue issues.

 

Want to change your life?

See my supplement recommendations below, then go get started!

For the vast majority of people, steps 1 to 6 will do the trick.

There is however, a Step 7.

 

Step 7: Medical Intervention: Or What to do when 60 to 90 Days of Steps 1 to 6 Don’t work.

If you dedicate yourself to steps 1 to 6 and do not drastically improve over 60 to 90 days, then there are some other steps that include:

  • Very high doses of therapeutic herbs – do not try without medical supervision
  • Hormone and hormone precursor treatments including pregnenolone, DHEA, and even cortisol itself in the morning to enforce a regular cycle – use with a doctor’s supervision only
  • Drugs including arimidex/anastrozole (men only usually, it is a potent aromatase inhibitor) to help assist your body in the conversion of DHEA into testosterone and NOT cortisol (testosterone and cortisol compete for the same resources in your body) by helping to block the conversion of estrogen into testosterone

 

Any of these should ONLY BE DONE UNDER DIRECT MEDICAL supervision. They are not try at home varieties of self help since getting it wrong can mess you up, and potentially even kill you. If you have tried the interventions 1 to 6 above and you feel you need further help with this debilitating condition, then I recommend looking for an intelligent functional medical practitioner in your area.

 

I would leave the medical interventions as a last resort, do not underestimate the power of sleep, good real food, and intelligent supplementation on your health and well being!

Now, finding all the recommended supplements individually unfortunately, can be rather expensive. Just taking a quick look on amazon, it totals around $180 a month for these nine adrenal fatigue fighting ingredients in anything even approaching quality.

However, instead of dropping this amount of money each month and going out and searching these ingredients individually,… I have made it easy for you.

At Athletic Greens, we actually created a powerful greens drink that is whole-food based and contains each of these ingredients and  66 other proven micronutrient, herbal, and anti-oxidant ingredients.

I formulated Athletic Greens  in conjunction with research doctorates, naturopaths and nutritionists with a 60 years’ combined experimental and clinical experience.

If you added up all the ingredients contained in Athletic Greens,  you’re looking at spending around $1049 a month on Amazon or at GNC.

However, with athletic Greens, in will only cost around $2.95 a serving.

Listen, I don’t want you to decide today.

I want you take advantage of my 60 Day, No Questions Asked, Money Back Guarantee.

Simply try us out, and if you don’t start to notice your energy sky rocket and your overall health improve, simply call us up, send us back the empty pouch and we will give you your money back.

It’s really that easy.

So why I am offering this 60 day money back guarantee? Because I know what I created works, and I know you will love it and I can’t wait for you to try it out.

And if you don’t love it…simply call us up to get your refund. It’s that simple.

    Hello, I have been drinking athletic greens for two months now. I feel good but was wondering if you have any suggestions on what to eat to help my digestion. Since taking the greens daily things have been a bit ‘loose’… Sorry that’s gross! Any tips? Also I’m practically a newbie, can I access the free book? Thanks!

    Chris, great post!

    2 years ago, I wrecked my body by going very strict Paleo for a few months and I’m still recovering now (very low carb is stupid!). I’m doing pretty well overall, but my belly is extremely bloated and I have digestive issues (spend about 45-60 minutes in the bathroom each day). My family buys grass-fed meat from the farm, mostly organic veggies, raw milk, high quality fish oil, olive oil, grass-fed butter, make sourdough, etc. We try way too hard and spend way too much, IMHO! We have experimented off and on by eliminating gluten and/or dairy too, but nothing is really making a huge difference.

    We’ve tried a lot of what you mention in this e-mail, but still struggle. Does it just take (a long!) time or are we missing something?

    Thanks!!

    • fuegoazteca

      Jason you might want to try a good probiotic if you’re not doing so. Gut health is vital to get the synergistic effect with all the wholesome products you’re consuming. Healthy Trinity and or Kombucha is what I take with great results. Good Luck

  • Clayton

    Hey Chris, why did you mention dark chocolate as a “No-No”. I like to enjoy 88% organic dark chocolate squares throughout the week.

    Thanks for the awesome article!

    • Anonymous

      Hey Clayton

      Thank you!

      Good question. Keep going with your dark chocolate – just be aware that they can be stimulatory. So if you are not sleeping like a baby, make sure you have the chocolate early in the day.
      It has a mild stimulant effect.

      Cheers

      I never said “no coffee” for everyone – just when in the day to take it if you are not feeling awesome.
      For those with advanced adrenal fatigue, sorry, they have to get off the stims, at least for a while.
      But no coffee? Ever? Would never dream of saying that.

      I’m only 35, but I’ve never had a cup of coffee in my life. I’ll never understand why people get so addicted to it. I occasionally have caffeine and all it does is make me shaky. This article gives great keys to not be tired and sluggish all the time!
