The overall goal of adrenal fatigue treatment includes preventing further progression, resolving the unpleasant reactions, as well as, recovery programs.
Proper adrenal fatigue treatment is customized based on individual needs of each person and so, there are no standardized recovery protocols. The condition manifests with varying symptoms on each person, and also, body requirements differ from one person to another depending on body constitutions.
In addition, proper adrenal fatigue treatment guarantees full recovery and the person resumes normal productive life. In fact, almost all sufferers recover within a period of six months and two years depending on severity.
An ideal AF treatment protocol consists, but not limited to, diet, nutrition, exercise, and electrolyte adjustments.
A person experiencing adrenal crash has imbalanced metabolism, hypoglycemia, and also compromised gastric assimilation. So, a dietary adjustment should major on how to stabilize blood sugar by balancing carbohydrate, protein, and fat in the diet. A proper delivery system of macro-nutritional form enhances both absorption and delivery of nutrients to the cells.
When a person experiences a crash, the amount of nutrient to be recommended is based on clearance state, autonomic system sensitivity, history of paradoxical reaction, as well as, biological constitution. For example, a person with poor clearance levels will have reduced nutrients during the crash while those with normal clearance there nutrients levels will be increased during or immediately after a crash.
Unnecessary physical activity should be avoided and instead increase rest. Exercise is adjusted to match the energy state of the body. In early Adrenal Fatigue, Exercise enhances release of adrenaline as well as blood circulation which results in short-term energy boost and this always should be followed by sufficient rest. Over-exercise drains the body that trigger follow up crashes. In advanced AF, exercise is minimal and increases depending on how recovery is taking place. So, depending on the severity of the condition, each individual has customized exercise program.
4) Electrolyte Adjustments.
Salt craving is a common symptom in AF due to sodium imbalance caused by hormonal dysfunction. The imbalance worsens during a crash. According to adrenal fatigue treatment policy, the rebalance process should be carefully titrated and controlled to avoid worsening the situation.
