I found this site a few months ago and I think it is wonderful. I have been using many of the suggestions – and actually making my own cultured food!
I learned that my adrenal glands were overworked and exhausted by the stress, so I discovered ways to support them and then I began to heal. The first thing I did was to eat every cultured food I could find. When I would eat cultured vegetables, the huge amount of Vitamin C and the B vitamins helped me tremendously. In fact, kombucha has huge amounts of B vitamins, good bacteria, and yeast, and could make me feel better in twenty minutes. I discovered that B vitamins are the key to helping support your adrenal glands. B vitamins are abundant in every cultured food – kefir, cultured veggies, kombucha, and sprouted breads. In contrast, processed foods and sugars deplete B vitamins and spike insulin in a dramatic way, adversely affecting your adrenal glands.
Healthy gut flora-this is the number one thing you need in order to help your body absorb and use B vitamins, which in turn will strengthen your adrenal glands. Healthy gut flora will synthesize B vitamins, enzymes, and proteins so that we are never depleted. When the gut flora is out of balance, this production is impaired. It is crucial to be aware of the importance of probiotics in your diet to help repopulate healthy gut flora.
