I have been struggling lately with diet and adrenal fatigue. Ever since I stopped eating fish something seems off. So I have started researching yet again and will include a new Adrenal Fatigue section at the top right of my blog. I have blown my adrenals yet again and I have been working over the past 6 months on building them up. I seem to build them up and then tear them down. So of course I look to diet. I want to stay 80% Raw or more as I know I feel best that way but I am in need of the proper balance of which foods I need to be eating. I never really paid too much attention to the Potassium/Sodium balance and I think this is very interesting. I don’t have the answer but I am finding some incredibly useful information. I’ve also added some links below to check out under Adrenal Fatigue.
This site from Natural Ways is extremely helpful and stresses a whole food natural diet but gives you specifics about which may help. Maybe you will find it helpful. Here’s some info and I urge you to click the link and read the rest it is extremely informative:
Whole Foods Diet is Recommended Buy organically grown produce as much as possible. Avoid consumption of sugar. Refined carbohydrate, caffeine (adrenal stimulants), and alcohol should be avoided. Fasting and detoxification should not be used at the beginning of adrenal strengthening. The diet should be a building and strengthening diet. Eat plenty of fresh and lightly steamed vegetables and their juices as they contain minerals to prevent fatigue.
In restoration of the adrenal gland function one should include potassium rich foods and avoid foods high in sodium. This will help to keep the sodium/potassium balance in the body. In the standard American diet, people consume way too much sodium. Researchers recommend a dietary potassium-to-sodium ratio of greater than 5 to 1. Intake of potassium should be about 3 to 5 grams per day.
