Fatigue Be Gone!
realized that I need to stop trying to fix the world and just
let them (my family) "be." Trying to control others has been
exhausting me. Thanks for this insight!

... from a recovering toxic relationship addict
& Adrenal Gland Failure survivor …
If you're in a toxic relationship, your body is working in
overdrive to produce the endorphins you need to combat the
stress chemicals your body is producing. All of the extra work
puts a huge strain on your adrenal glands and can put you over
the edge and straight into Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome or worse
Adrenal Failure. This guide is a must read – DON”T WAIT - read

I just found your "Fatigue Be Gone" e-book on Rebecca White's "Heal
Yourself Talk" website. Whew! This is FANTASTIC!!!
Exactly what I'm looking for my own readers!
I have dealt with fatigue for years and no doctor's visit or
vitamin product has helped. I think I'm finally going to turn a
corner by working through the steps in your book
Viveca's Fatigue Be Gone provides easy transitions into a healthier
lifestyle. My friends and I have taken for granted that we are tired
all the time. V's guide has opened our minds to a variety of causes
and sources that we can work on together. I recommend sharing the
guide with your girlfriends and sisters.

"If you are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, read
Adrenal Fatigue Be Gone. It's a deceptively simple programme
that will have you feeling in control of your life with a
minimum of fuss. Better yet, you'll never have to go back to
feeling flat and exhausted again!"
Jennifer Clare, Author The No Sweat Guide to Fitness
Just finished your "Fatigue Be Gone! Jumpstart e-Guide." It is a
very easy read and easy to understand. These are tops in my book
given so much is written in medical lingo and it is hard to
decipher what in the world they mean. Your guide is full of
worthy and much needed information that makes a difference in
the daily life of someone suffering from fatigue. Thank you for
the great work you have put into this resource, so that all of
us who are fatigued can benefit from it. I wish you much success
on this road
to help others.

I'm blown away! This is a tremendous piece of work (and us men
can benefit from the info too!).

that occurs with Post Traumatic Stress, the holding of a trauma in
one's cellular memory because it is too much to deal with after the

Hey Mom … Is Adrenal Fatigue
Causing You to Be Tired All the Time? Symptoms,
Causes and Solutions for a disorder that affects nearly 80% of women
Adrenal fatigue sufferers are caught in a vicious cycle. Usually, they feel
extremely tired in the morning and late afternoon and most energetic after 5
p.m. By bedtime a dreaded “second wind” kicks in. There they lay -- wired awake,
too tired for sex, angry, anxious and alone, since their partner is, hopefully,
asleep. Tossing and turning all night, they never getting more than a few hours
Adrenal fatigue makes it
difficult to roll out of bed, let alone function. Yet, the women who suffer from
this debilitating disorder dutifully struggle to get up, feed their family and
usher them out the door. Oftentimes, in a feeble attempt to boost their energy,
they resort to pounding sweets and coffee.
Typically, by 11 a.m. they
begin to feel somewhat human, than hit the wall of fatigue around 3 p.m. A few
hours later another boost of energy arrives and they frantically attempt to
complete their tasks, knowing that by 11 p.m. they will be exhausted, yet unable
Sound like you? You're not
alone. Experts claim that adrenal fatigue affects nearly 80 percent of
Americans; particularly women who are mothers. The first step to ending the
agony associated with adrenal fatigue is to become aware of its symptoms, causes
and solutions. And, it is agony to feel tired, stressed, anxious and
overwhelmed all the time.
What are the Adrenal
Glands? They are two, small, triangular glands
located on top of each kidney. They produce essential hormones which aid in
dealing with stress including adrenaline, corticosteroids and androgens.
The adrenal glands provide
our "get up and go" and are intended to provide an occasional "fight or flight"
response. Most moms are surviving off a constant adrenaline rush as they try to
meet their overwhelming amount of daily obligations.
Their adrenal glands are
pumping hormones at full throttle, sending a message to the body of "go, Go
GO!!!" When this reaction is demanded on a continuous basis our bodies cannot
recharge naturally. They become exhausted and begin to deteriorate. And, so does
our quality of life.
What Causes Adrenal
Fatigue? The onset is often triggered by a major shock such as a broken
divorce, serious burns (including sunburn), bankruptcy or job loss. However even
"happy" changes are extremely stressful and can throw us out of whack including: marriage,
promotion and relocation. The birth of a child falls under extremely happy and
stressful featuring interrupted sleep patterns, new mom anxiety and ...
Adrenal fatigue is also
associated with unresolved, long-term stress or anxieties including drug or
alcohol abuse, newborn baby adjustments, financial stress, marriage
Oftentimes, you'll find it
snuggled in the “straw that broke the camel’s back” scenarios, such as
the lack of recovery from a series of emotional and/or physical events.
Who “catches” Adrenal
Fatigue: In the U.S. an estimated 80 percent of American women and men will
suffer from adrenal fatigue syndrome at some point in their life. Of the women,
moms are the most vulnerable. Specifically, mothers who are …
Type “A” Perfectionist, Super Mom, Back-to-School Moms burning the candle at
both ends; Moms with two or more children and little support from family or
friends; Single moms and married moms with extremely unhappy and stressful home
and/or work conditions. Other factors include drug or alcohol abuse; alternating
shift work that requires frequent adjustments to the sleep pattern; and an
obsessive “all work, no play” lifestyle.
Adrenal fatigue solutions
abound including anti-anxiety prescriptions, sleeping pills, dietary changes,
hormone replacement therapy, counseling, vitamins, supplements, patches and more
prescriptions. I tried many of these along my path to recovery. One of the
healthiest choices I made was hands-on and medication-off.
Therapy Massage -
Acupressure: Acupressure is a massage therapy technique in which
fingers press key points on the surface of your skin to stimulate the body’s
natural healing abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscle
tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body’s life force (called
qi or chi) to aid in healing and relaxation. (Acupuncture presses the same
points as acupressure, but uses needles vs. touch.)
Acupressure works well for
most people and usually provides significant and immediate relief. My first
appointment lasted two hours. I wanted, hoped and prayed it could knock me back
in my groove. It did. That night I slept like a baby. Ever since, acupressure
has been a nurturing part of my ongoing rejuvenation process.
Begin with a weekly session
or, at minimum, every other week. Schedule appointments for late afternoon and
take the rest of the day off from your “busy-ness.” Do NOT jump from your
appointment back into the fray. This type of behavior is only adding to your
Adrenal fatigue is a serious
condition. If you want to stop feeling tired, exhausted and cranky all the time,
you must step out of the fight or flight response and give your adrenal glands
times to rejuvenate.
If your kids aren’t old
enough to fend for themselves, on Acupressure Eve hire a babysitter, beg
your mother, your sister or a friend. Some of the best support comes from other
tired moms. Don’t worry. Once she sees how great you are doing, it won’t be long
before you “earn” this favor by watching over her children!
Once your acupressure
treatment is over, it's time to relax, drink plenty of water and eat a light
nourishing meal. Refrain from drinking any alcohol (interferes with sleep) and
go to bed early with your journal, a calm inspirational read, and/or your loving
Use acupressure as a
springboard and form other lighter, livable routines. Like…
... simplifying, prioritizing,
and doing more of what matters most and less of the rest. Like eating more
greens and brown rice and fresh fruits... Like allowing the phone to go to
voicemail after 8 p.m. and staying off all your electronic gadgets and gizmos …
Like splashing lavender essential oil on your pillow and in your bathtub and
breathing peace in, stress out.
Yes, this is one way to
come back to yourself – your strong, relaxed and whole mom self. For more
suggestions and almost daily tips and inspiration,
Mom, whatever you do ...
don't settle for feeling just o.k. or fine. You deserve to feel GREAT (so does
the rest of your family.)
