My Journey to Healing Adrenal Burnouts

That's me, in Paris. About 12 years ago, during a month long Euro trip. A couple of months after, life as I knew it changed forever. I often look back at this summer. For me it was the summer that started not only my struggle with health but also started my transformation. 

At that time in my life, I was working 10 hour days, exercising daily like a maniac, eating healthy but unbalanced meals, prioritizing everything else but rest and sleep. I was wired and doing it all because I was a master at multitasking, and taking it all on. No boundaries, no restrictions. 

What I didn't realize at the time, I was running on adrenaline and putting my body in sever danger. I wasn't managing my stress and I was definitely not putting any importance on my emotional or mental well being. "Soul" was a word that sounded cute but one I had absolutely no connection to. Sleep was something that was nice but not mandatory. Rest was something that I did out of boredom or in preparation to going out. There was no part of my life that was being led with mindfulness. 

My first Adrenal Burnout happened when I returned home after that summer trip. It started with occasional vertigo and fatigue, and then a flood of symptoms appeared as if from no where, that left me bed bound for 8 months. I often asked myself what could I have done differently and the answer is - everything. My stubborn Taurus nature also made it difficult to learn and absorb the lessons quickly. I ended up having 3 more major burnouts over the next 10 years. 

This taught me exactly how to heal them should the need ever arise again. Most importantly I learned how to prevent future burnouts, and I want to share it all with you.

Above are just some of the symptoms I experienced that are still fresh in my mind.  At the height of it I remember being in constant pain, and so severely fatigued it felt like I ran a marathon anytime I got out of bed. Unable to sleep no matter what I did, unable to wake up in the morning regardless of the time. Unable to eat or feeling so hungry you couldn't feed me enough. Extreme thirst that would force me out of bed at all hours of the night. I was loosing so much hair I had bold spots. My skin was dry, grey and shrivelling. My body so bloated it would hurt. And worse of all - the extreme vertigo and lightheadedness I was feeling left me with virtually no balance and unable to walk. Everything I tried to do was so difficult, it felt near impossible.  But, mostly I remember feeling completely scared, helpless and alone - not knowing if I was ever going to be okay again. One of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue is memory loss so there are very few things I actually remember from all those years, and in many ways I'm grateful for that. 

On a mental and emotional level I found it very difficult to process simple thoughts and feelings. I was in a constant state of frustration, anger, fear and deep despair. I found that even when I tried to explain what I was going through no one really understood it, and that created a lot of deep emotional wounds. Because, most of the time, I 'looked' completely fine it was hard for someone else to even take it seriously. I heard a lot of 'shake it off' and 'get yourself together' but the truth was I just could not. It was impossible for me to do it physically, mentally or emotionally. So, I got help from people that understood.

My Why's

Why did this keep happening to me?

  • Lack of any form of stress management

  • Inability to communicate my needs

  • No boundaries

  • Complete detachment from myself

  • Total lack of awareness

  • Emotional trauma I avoided facing

  • Mental blocks I avoided managing

  • Lack of balance in my life

  • Fear, fear,.... and did I mention fear?

  • Self-limiting beliefs

  • Surrounded by toxic friendships

  • Avoidance 

  • Refusal to let go

  • Refusal to walk away

  • Lack of support

It took me about 10 years to learn why all of this was happening to me and why it was reoccurring. In order to find these answers I went on a deep spiritual journey and total transformation. I needed to face the darkest part of me in order to truly understand 'the why'. I needed to learn about the body, the mind and the soul. All three were equally important. It wasn't enough to heal the body if I wasn't able to calm my thoughts and listen to my soul. Because something deep within me was broken and it needed to be fixed. I had to break me entirely in order to rebuilt a healed, balanced, grounded, and connected version. 

After a lot of searching, testing, exploring and using my body as a guinea pig, I discovered a formula that truly works. And, I'm going to share it with you. 

 

Disclaimer: It works but only if you are committed to do the work and make the necessary changes and willingness to let go of what made you sick in the first place.
