I was just given the good news of my many food allergies.
As it turns out, my vit D levels were higher than most people......kudos! Thyroid function good, liver & kidneys GOOD
But I need to stop the stress. Yeah OK
MY ADRENALS ARE LOW......shit
so here we go.........
Science tells us that if you experience stress on a chronic basis, the tiny adrenal glands that moderate your stress response and keep many other hormones balanced will suffer. The stress response — when the adrenals produce the hormone cortisol — is normal. We need cortisol to handle emergencies. However, the stress response is designed to be short-term, with a fairly quick return to a relaxed baseline.
Unfortunately, our adrenals don’t know the difference between a true emergency and the stress from merely sitting in a traffic jam. Many of us stay revved up all day in a ‘fight-or-flight’ state. But when cortisol stays elevated like that, our bodies gradually become less sensitive to the mechanism that helps bring it back to normal.
Vitamins like C, E and all the B vitamins (especially pantothenic acid and B6) have crucial roles in the production and actions of stress hormones. And a mineral like magnesium provides necessary energy for your adrenals — and every cell in your body — to function properly. Calcium and several trace minerals, like zinc, manganese, selenium, and iodine, provide calming effects in the body. These minerals can help relieve the stress associated with adrenal fatigue and imbalance, which will ultimately restore normal cortisol output.
NOW ALL I NEED TO DO IS MATCH THE FOODS TO THE VITAMINS (that i can eat)
C: strawberries, bell peppers, brussels sprouts melons, dark leafy greens, broccoli & tomato STOKED
E: wheat germ, sunflower seeds, cooked spinach, flax seed oil, asparagus & butternut squash
B: brown rice, sunflower seeds, avocado, chickpeas, fish, eggs, yogurt & chicken
