Description

Warning: This is a raw/unedited recording of my discussing the below outline on an IG live due to many many comments on an IG post on my account about high vs low cortisol. You can view that original post here: https://www.instagram.com/p/Cd9ZOx5huGj/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link 

>> Ask Christa live session for health professionals in July: www.askchrista.com (LIMITED to 20 seats) 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

  • Couple years ago ran an "adrenal resilience reset" and here are some of the principles I discussed in that program: 
  • Normal cortisol curve
    • Programmed by circadian rhythm: eating, sunlight, etc 
  • Where cortisol comes from and other hormones produced by the adrenals and their roles. 
    • 76% of health professionals show signs of burnout 
  • Gas pedal/gas tank: resilience 
    • CV-resilience issues and mitochondrial degradation
  • What to do: stop killing cells 
    • 3 pronged approach from PHYSIOLOGY standpoint : 
      • Minerals 
      • Mitochondrial support
      • Custom adrenal support (might look like adaptogenic mushrooms, ashwaganda, valerian root, magnolia, lemon balm, magnesium, glandulars, licorice, etc. I mention L-theanine and GABA as favorites for anxiety as well and calming support). This will depend if high OR low and what you tolerate. 
        • I also talk about why people DON'T tolerate things and answer off the cuff questions about headaches, etc, 

    • NON-negotiables for lifestyle: 
      • Sleep 7-10 hours 
      • Limbic system work/neural pathway retraining
      • Gut/mold/etc issues  
      • Eat enough regularly at reg intervals every 4ish hours PFC 
      • LIFESTYLE: what is stresing you out? talking fast? appt to appt? 
      • Exercise changes 
      • Night shift
