The effect of the adrenals on the body —
The adrenals are our energy and stress system. When we are under a great deal of stress, we will usually “blow out” our B-complex vitamins; these, in turn, will eventually blow out our adrenal systems, as it is this system that takes over when we are too tired to function even when we continue to push ourselves. When your B-vitamins and adrenals have been blown out, symptoms will begin to appear. At first, you may feel more tired than usual, eventually looking for a nap in the afternoon. You may find you cannot handle the littlest stress in your life and eventually, you may find you are not able to sleep at night even though you are very exhausted. This deficiency becomes overwhelming to the body and it seems as though you are on a merry-go-round. You are very tired, but cannot sleep, and so you become even more tired and drained. In order to help heal the adrenals, it is imperative to reduce stress in your life as much as possible. Remember, healing yourself is your responsibility. Although you cannot heal others, you can make conscious decisions in your life as far as what is and what is not acceptable.
