Modern Lifestyle + Adrenal Fatigue!

Dr.Sara Gottfried, Dave Asprey, and Chris Kresser: What do these people all have in common?

Probably heaps of stuff, but for me they are the ones who opened up my eyes to alternative medicine that still fits within a scientific approach.

Chris Kresser’s approach in particular is now becoming main-stream: Fix the Gut, and you fix the Man (or Woman)! And with aspects such as the gut-brain connection, Vagus Nerve, and Probiotics now being studied regularly, he was quite a bit ahead of his time.

Take for example, Adrenal Fatigue. Most mainstream GP’s would roll their eyes if you told them you wanted your Serum Cortisol checked. “Just get more sleep and don’t stress so much” was the general prescription. Well, that or a pharmaceutical prescription!

However, it is now being proven due to the volume of people affected, particularly those in ‘white collar’ occupations, that Adrenal Fatigue is a very real, and very debilitating illness. Just ask me, I’ve had it, and still battle bouts of it. And I wrote about it briefly here.

Now it’s your turn – do you suffer from fatigue?

What are your personal experiences?

I’d love to hear and compare thoughts!

Are you spending 70 years inside?

Food, warmth, shelter. We’ve been told that these are the three essential elements for survival. No one is arguing.

But could we have gone too far with the whole ‘shelter’ aspect?

It is certainly easier than it has ever been in the history of mankind not to leave your house, with everything you could want or need being available if you have a decent Internet connection. At a certain price of course. And because our needs and wants come at a price, let alone our food, warmth, shelter, we need to work. We’re spending a lot of our time in an office, so we can spend a lot of time inside our homes. The result? Sedentary, lazy bodies; Obesity; Sickness and illnesses prior generations never suffered; Vitamin D deficiency; and over-indulgence.

Why am I writing this Post? Because this statistic/ illustration below, as published in New Scientist, absolutely floored me:

Get outside, embrace the weather, move, and learn more about yourself than you ever will via an Internet connection!
