(How to address it in your life)
First, I want to let you know that if I get enough interest, I can teach about what I’m going to address on this via a webinar that would take about an hour. I got this question yesterday via private message after my live broadcast on Facebook.
First, I get it! It’s what started me on the journey I’m on. So, I’m going to tell what I did that worked. And since I did several things, I am going to take a few days to address it. Today, what diet changes can help. Tomorrow and Saturday, activities I started participating in and Sunday, the role faith plays.
First, what to eat or avoid. I highly recommend pea protein since it contains all 9 essential amino acids your body needs to recover from burn out. When you are preparing your foods, keep the temperature below 120ºF to keep your adrenal glands from being further drained. Add extra virgin olive oil, butter, and coconut oil to your soups and smoothies. Margarine, soy and modified oils MUST go. Add nutrient dense foods. Including coconut, olives, avocado, cruciferous vegetables, fatty fish, chicken & turkey. Nuts, such as walnuts & almonds. Seeds such as pumpkin, chia & flax. Celtic or Himalayan sea salt, brightly colored vegetables. High quality carbohydrates such as quinoa, lentils and buckwheat. The things I recommend you avoid are caffeine, sugar (honey or stevia are okay), processed and microwaved foods and hydrogenated oils.
Next, cooked vs raw foods. Cooked foods are easier on the body than raw foods and serves the body well when you are drained physically, emotionally, and/or mentally. Beef, chicken, turkey cooked for about 6 hours is easier for the body to digest. And is a good source of protein. I highly recommend you switch to grass fed meats. According to Dr. Don Colbert in his new book Dr. Colbert’s Keto Zone Diet, “Grass-fed meats, I later learned, are much healthier than grain-fed meats. In fact, grass-fed meats have more of all the healthy fats, minerals, and nutrients that our bodies need.” (Colbert, 11).
Third, supplements. Add type 2 hyaluronic acid and collagen. Also add a glutathione enhancer to boost your immune system and cool inflammation. Vitamin B-complex is a high need. Plus, fish oil, vitamin C, vitamin D, Selenium, Magnesium, and Zinc. Finally, add adaptogenic herbs for boosting adrenal function. On the type 2 hyaluronic acid & collagen, the glutathione enhancer and adaptogenic herbs, contact me directly so I can direct you to the ones I have used and know are effective. I have preferred brands on the others as well. My preferred brands on everything I suggest are backed by science. And can’t be purchased from your favorite superstore. By using products backed by science, you will see faster results and you will save money.
