|Before Dr. Google warns you about cancer, read on:|
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
~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.
