Today my guest is a fellow podcaster, coach and athlete who has struggled as myself with burnout and breakdown of her body systems. We chat about our experiences with chronic stress, METABOLIC CHAOS®, as we say in FDNP, or the old term – “Adrenal Fatigue” or for me “Adrenal Exhaustion” …technically dysfunction to our HPA Axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis).
Based on my experience with “Adrenal Exhaustion” signs and symptoms starting the obviously show up in February 2013, my purpose and mission is to help driven individuals avoid going through what I went through the past eight years! I shared my personal story in my book LIFE IS NOT A RACE to help create awareness of being addicted to busy-ness and living with the philosophy that “more is better’ – when sometimes that less is more!
You could be like me and doing all the “Right” things in life to stay fit, strong, and healthy- but only to find yourself overindulging in LIFE itself. I was burning the candle at both ends for MANY years until my red warning flags were too obvious to ignore anymore. I was doing fasted workouts, I was doing strength training, I was doing yoga, I was doing low carb keto type of eating and I was feeling happy everyday! Anything too much does accumulate and overfills our “beaker of stress”. Too much of anything can lead to “METABOLIC CHAO®”!
The struggle is real, and you are not alone!
My friend Connie has experienced unexplained fatigue, weight gain and burnout -and today she shares her story and journey.
