How to rebuild your adrenal glands through food As a team of nutritional professionals helping people recover from AFS, many of whom are bedridden and in a catabolic state with severe fatigue, we have observed the wonderful, direct effects of nutrition, if done right, on a sensitive and weak body. This book encompasses our years of experience in developing recipes and dietary principles specifically for AFS recovery.
Incorporate wholesome food principles from ancient times The nourishment concepts and strategies of this book incorporate wholesome food principles from ancient times, when food was cherished as a healing tool. These principles work then and now because the human body has not changed. We therefore emphasize the importance of eating whole foods, especially vegetables and easily digestible proteins.
Know more about the science behind nutrition The more you know about the science behind nutrition, the better you are able to self-navigate. In addition to recipes, we detail the science of macronutrients and explain the reasons behind different preparations of food and their clinical results on the neuroendocrine system to help you in your recovery process. The body possesses an amazing capacity to rebound if we only give it the tools to nurture it systematically with these recipes.
Help alleviate your symptoms at the same time The Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome Cookbook is divided into 8 chapters, each detailing a common symptom seen in adrenal fatigue. Utilizing these specific recipes, you will not only strengthen your adrenals but also help alleviate your symptoms at the same time.
