As a practicing Connecticut Chiropractor (and holistic health practitioner), I’ve noticed over the years that many of my new patients are often unaware of how they can improve their overall health and well-being by paying attention to the foods they eat.

There are many methods that you can use to strengthen the adrenals. When problems of adrenal insufficiency are identified and corrected, the result of treatment can be very rewarding.
The positive effect on energy, stamina and vitality can be substantial.

Here’s a short list to get you started:
- Buy organic grown produce as much as possible
- Eat potassium rich foods and avoid high sodium foods. example of potassium foods, kelp, unsalted sunflower seeds, almonds, spinach
- Take Vitamin B5, C, B6, Zinc and Magnesium.
- Herbs that help are Hawthorne berry, Gotukola, Astragalus Root and Milk Thistle
- Wild Yam may be the best of them all in that it will help balance the hormones and thereby restore the adrenals back to a healthy function.
Examples of potassium rich foods are:
- unsalted sunflower seeds
Taking vitamin B5 is very important for you, as a deficiency of B5 will lead to adrenal atrophy(shrinking). Vitamin B5 is also know as pantothenic acid.
