Hello out there!
Here are the things I have noticed since quitting coffee: Less bloating, a comfortable stomach, a little more energy, legs hurt [a bit] less, no crashes, able to get moving and feeling awake faster in the morning.
I’m starting to think all of those studies that say coffee drinkers live longer are a crock…how can you live longer if your adrenals are suffering? Just Sayin’!

Are you exhausted all the time?
I know I am!
After years of stress, poor coping skills, caffeine, malnutrition, and even diet pills I got me some adrenal fatigue! I hope this can help other people too and maybe take the mystery out of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Both of those may very well be symptoms of adrenal fatigue. And there is a way to reverse it! Watch my little diddy then read below some other things I am going to do to heal my adrenals.
Here’s what I am going to do to slowly heal this God forsaken exhausting thing.
1. Get to bed early. On days that my alarm goes off at 5 am I want to be in bed before 9 pm! On days that I can sleep more I want to be in bed by 10 pm!
2. No coffee. I am going to transition with yerba mate which I really like. It contains theobromine rather than caffeine as the stimulant. Theobromine is less taxing on adrenals.
3. Decrease stress.
4. A well rounded traditional foods diet of saturated fats, protein, vegetables and healthy carbs.
Stay tuned for updates!
