The Adrenal Fatigue Solution Book Review

One thing I've noticed, that maybe you've felt at times, too, is that learning about things in the natural categories can feel overwhelming and lead you to ask more questions with fewer answers. This especially happens when you're faced with chronic and somewhat vague conditions that typical doctors don't know about, or even dismiss as silly.

Before Dr. Google warns you about cancer, read on:
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome (AFS) is one of those things. It isn't something fancy or scary, it's simply a professional term for what parents might call being burned out. It's when your body has been working too hard for too long, leaving you worn down, tired out, prone to minor illnesses, irritable, and not healing as well as you remember back in the days where you could stay up all night at college.

When someone begins to suspect that life has been too rough on her lately and that she's developing an adrenal issue, the first thing she asks me is, "What do I do?" The answer can be long and overwhelming, especially when the poor mom is trying to breastfeed, carry a toddler, and juggle 3,000 things on her todo list. Learning about an entire medical condition, natural treatments, supplements, and bio-identical hormonal treatments when her problem is feeling overworked and overtired already is a real crunch.

That's why I have no qualms adding this new book, The Adrenal Fatigue Solution to my Recommendation Bookshelf. I read it of MY OWN ACCORD. And was NOT reimbursed in ANY WAY. I like to have simple and helpful answers for my mama friends, and this is one of them.

If you're looking for a basic, easy to read book on AFS, check this one out. You will learn, without any smugness or eye glazing wording:

~What the adrenals are and what they do
~What AFS is, symptoms, and how it progresses
~Foods to eat and foods to avoid
~How to find a doctor to help you
~Helpful supplements
~The basics of bio identical hormonal treatments

It's not an intimidating book, and it provides some concrete ideas on how to begin feeling better and how to begin structuring your life to relieve the stresses causing your symptoms. Although sadly, there is no advice in the book on how to convince your husband to pick up his dirty underwear, I feel confident that if you are new to AFS and feeling overwhelmed, this is a book you will appreciate.

Here is the book website:

Again, I did not get kickbacks, compensation, trades, or whatever from this. I'm sorry if it reads like an infomercial. I just honestly believe this is a good book that will help all the parents out there worrying about AFS and looking for simple changes to make in their lives.
