black-woman-yoga-in-grass

 

Many people are overcome by stress during the holiday season. Work, buying presents, preparing for family arrival, going to visit family, being with family, holiday parties, and more fuel the fire that is stress in your body. When you are constantly stressed, the adrenal glands suffer and can become fatigued.

 

What Is Adrenal Fatigue?

The adrenals glands are located on top of the kidneys and they secrete adrenaline into the body. This helps your body spring into action in a stressful, fight or flight situation. The body is not designed to be in this fight or flight state all the time, but this can happen if you are constantly stressed. When your adrenal glands are constantly fatigued, you can experience cravings, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, or depression.

 

Why Yoga?

Yoga is a stress-relieving activity that helps to restore an internal balance in the body. Restorative yoga, in particular, works to establish mind/body relaxation, giving the adrenal glands a chance to rest and reset. Use the following yoga poses to help keep your adrenals healthy, or whenever you feel overwhelmed by stress.

 

Viparita Karani (Hold 5 minutes):

This pose works to bring promote healthy circulation of lymphatic fluid from the legs to the abdomen and brain. This helps to energize the circulatory system. Watch the video to do the exercise.

 

Supported Child’s Pose (Hold 5 minutes):

Child’s Pose is a classic yoga move that is typically used for resting. The idea is to just let go and completely relax. When you use a bolster, or a stack of blankets, it gives your body a lot of support. This isn’t required, but you may feel like it helps. Watch the video to do the exercise.

 

Supported Cross-Legged Pose (Hold 2 minutes):

Helping to relieve tension in the hips, this pose works to relax both the body and the mind. Watch the video below to do the exercise.

 

Supported Bridge Pose (Hold 5 minutes):

This pose works to bring your body back into a balanced state and slowsa the release of adrenaline from your adrenal glands. Watch the video to do the exercise.

 

Twist Pose (Hold 2 minutes per side):

You’ll feel a nice back stretch when you do this pose. What a lot of people don’t know is that this pose works to stimulate digestion and relieve mental stress. Watch the video to do the pose.

 

Let us know if these yoga poses helped relieve stress.

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: I would like to know if the product you sell called the FIBRIOD BUSTER is the right product to get rid of a tumor in my adrenal gland or do I need some other type product to help me get rid of this tumor. My budget is limited at this time so I am not able to buy a lot of products at this time. Perhaps I will be able to get more in the near future. But I need something to help me get rid of this tumor and to keep other tumors from developing. I am already detoxifying and eating healthier. Your input will be appreciated in helping me get the best and right product from you for the tumor that the doctors have said is in one of my adrenal glands. They also say this tumor is depleting my potassium and causing my blood pressure to be continuously high.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND ADRENALIZER FORMULAADRENALIZER, TUMOR BUSTER EXTRACT, AND ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD FORMULA.

    Q: I received the herbs I ordered from you - thanks so much! I have a couple of questions about them. My husband will be taking the Adrenal Glands Complex - it says to take three capsules/day - should they be taken all at once or one at three different times? Also, for the full body cleanse: Having done detox programs before where I eat mainly fruits, juices, and salads, I am a bit concerned about losing weight. I have been a vegan for 3 three years (50-75% raw), am already at the low end of normal weight for my height (using BMI), and do not particularly want or need to lose weight. Do you have any suggestions?

    A:

    1. The Adrenal Glands Complex should be taken all at once (3 capsules at once is better) though he is free to spread the capsules out throughout the day.

    2. Your body will only lose the amount of weight that it needs do. If your body does not need to, it will not. The Cleanse only performs to restore your body to its optimal weight and state. Also, on our Full Body Cleanse, you are able to eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables, and raw nuts and seeds as you wish. Have plenty of healthy fats like avocado and coconut products  for more sustenance.

    Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.

    A:

    Don't look for answers or solutions primarily from sources outside of the body. There are herbs, but first use your mind. Mental healing! will your healing into fruition. Good herbs that will assist include Gingko Biloba, Ginseng (all types), and Gotu Kola. Dherbs.com Brain Tuner, CNS, and Ethereal Bliss are also helpful for your condition.

    Q: I wish there was an herbal replacement to wean from the Prednisone and Fludrocortisone enabling the Adrenal Glands to again begin to produce the right amount of Cortisol. Prunella and I think Rasberry Leaf are good for genital herpes. Can anything actually remove the antibody from the system.

    A:

    I suggest you try our ADRENALIZER FORMULA and KIDNEYS AND BLADDER Formula. In regards to "Genital Herpes" you should read a few our articles on the subject. â€GENITAL HERPES (HSVII)â€, â€IS GENTIAL HERPES REALLY CURABLE?â€? Red Raspberry Leaf is good for herpes, but not a cure all.

    Q: I am the proud purchaser of your FBC system. My husband will be starting the regiment soon. His occupation requires him to work 6p to 6a, thus he sleeps during the day Fri - Mon. The other 3 days he is on a more "normal" schedule. My concern is around what times he should consume his meals/supplements. As you can see, Breakfast and lunch could pose a problem . I am worried that his meals (Smoothies) will throw off his sleep cycle as well. What times frames should he eat at? Do some {raw} ingredients wake you up more? Please advise.

    A: Thank for contacting us.  We're happy to hear that you were satisfied with the Cleanse and recommended your husband to do it.  He can adjust the intake of the capsules according to his personal schedule. If he works overnight and is asleep during the day, he can start the regimen when he is up. He should just be sure that he's consuming the formula's every 2-3 hours as instructed.   There are raw foods that helps naturally provide the body with more energy, but they're not the same as consuming caffeinated beverages that would keep him up.  Most raw foods just have multiple benefits.  The Cleanse also helps improve your sleep.

    Q: How are you. I ran into your page on Youtube and subsequently did some research. Very Knowledgeable you are. I have problems with weight, stress, and erectile dysfunction. I work nights if I were to order your Full Body Detox does it need to be conducted in a different manner than someone who works at nights?

    A:

    Basically, you would just reverse the times you take the formulas. Instead of starting at 7 a.m., you'd start at 7 p.m. (or whenever you start your day or night). Just flip flop the time schedule. Plenty of people do this, those that work night shifts.

    Q: My son eats, and 30 minutes or sooner he has to go to the bathroom. He is thin, and doesn't hold food. If he eats he goes. What can he take to try to hold his food a little longer so that we can gain a few pounds. Is this behavior healthy? The doctors say he is fine, but going to the bathroom everytime you eat something, is a bit much.

    A:

    You're supposed to defecate 30 minutes after you eat. That's natural! You are going against nature to have the son to be like everybody else who are constipated, and don't know it. Don't follow societal norm!

    A: You can use multiple Elixirs at the same time. Just be sure to allow time in between taking each one. We suggest meditating with the use of the elixirs, focusing on clearing one emotion at a time.  If you're looking to cleanse your aura and protect yourself emotionally we would recommend looking into the Chakras and Aura Sprays we have available. We would recommend doing the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen to help improve the health of your lungs.  This regimen includes a Mucus Formula that helps combat mucus in the body.  You can also add the Anti-Viral Formula to your regimen to help your lungs if it has been affected by a virus.  All of our products are 100% all natural plant life herbs. We do not use any kind of unnatural ingredients including animal products, gluten, GMO, binders or fillers.  We offer products that are safe for elderly, children and adults.  Adjusting her diet would be the best thing to help remedy her conditions.  We suggest giving her the Full Body Cleanse to detox and replenish the health of all the major organs including the heart and kidney's.  Suggesting the Clearing Emotions Elixir to your husband could help clarify any lingering emotions he may have.   We recommend reading our article - Respiratory Health https://www.dherbs.com/articles/wellness-prevention/respiratory-health/ Product Links: Full Body Cleanse - http://dherbs.com/store/full-body-cleanse-p-1.html Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen - http://www.dherbs.com/store/respiratory-cleanse-and-regimen-p-204.html Mucus Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/mucus-Formula-formula-p-50.html Lungs & Respiratory Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/lungs-respiratory-formula-p-45.html Anti-Viral Formula - http://www.dherbs.com/store/antiviral-formula-p-6.html Chakra Elixirs #1-7 - https://www.dherbs.com/store/chakra-elixirs-c-6.html Aura Sprays - https://www.dherbs.com/store/aura-sprays-c-48.html

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!
