  • Stress Can lead to Adrenal Fatigue: I share how this stress of an eating disorder in my daughter iimpacted my health and how I reclaimed by health!
    by moyrapodcast on April 7, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    Stress can have a impact on your health. The 5 year journey of the eating disorder with my daughter and life and running a business led me to feeling not well. My menopause symptoms were increasing, anxiety increasing and sleep was not good. As I tried to handle it as I knew to handle health with natural supplements, it was not working. As I learned about how the adrenals are impacted, many other systems are thrown off. A little about adrenal fatigue....that some many not think is a real thing. I just know that I was off and my health was impacted in a negative way with all this stress. AND I was able to find some simple steps to reclaim my health. The term "adrenal fatigue" was coined in 1998 by James Wilson, PhD, a naturopath  It is a group of related signs and symptoms (a syndrome) that results when the adrenal glands don't function adequatlehy.  He says it’s usually associated with intense stress and often follows chronic infections like brochinitis and pneumonia.You can learn more about Adrenal Fatigue here on Web MD. You can find these supplements that I mentioned on the episode on my website of Shaklee web site CorEnergy Stress Relief  Find me at Moyra Gorski on FB Visit my Website Gorski Wellness for freebies about setting healthy boundaries. OR Juggling the Chaos of Recovery Podcast Page Over on Instagram as Green Gorski On Linked IN : Moyra Gorski If you have a story to share or would l like to schedule a 30 minute consultation, contact me at moyra@gorskiwellness.com  or a DM on Instagram.
