Adrenal Health Supplements
Stress is an important and natural biological reaction our bodies have to be able to respond to stimuli quickly. When we get stressed, our bodies transition from a parasympathetic state (commonly known as “rest and digest”) to a sympathetic state (commonly known as “fight and flight”). This is an incredibly important function for our bodies, as it allows us to respond to stressful situations to the highest of our abilities. However, returning back to the parasympathetic state can often take our bodies a long time. People in the modern age seem to be spending a lot of their time in the fight-or-flight state, not being able to return to the normal calm state. Overtime, this can be extremely harmful to one’s health.
Over time, if our bodies are consistently in this state and are not able to return back to their homeostatic state, (if one is constantly stressed or anxious), the adrenals become over worked and many will feel overwhelmed and fatigued. If you’re feeling stressed right now and need some grounding, try this meditation by Andrea!
If you are someone who feels stressed, anxious, or tired on a regular basis you may want to consider booking an appointment with one of our acupuncturists to see if the Adrenal Complex supplement from Standard Process would be the right supplement for you.
