Herbal Remedies for Weak Adrenals
Weak adrenals often result from overextending ourselves too much. According to traditional medicine, every person has a given amount of vital energy from their ancestors, and when this is gone, there is no way to build it back up. It is important to learn how to manage and focus the vital energy we have, and acquire as much daily energy as we can through our food.
Weakened adrenals syndrome is called "Yin Deficiency" in Chinese medicine, and it is treated with digestive herbs (Digestive Bitters formula), adrenal tonics which are also called "adaptogens" (eleuthero, licorice, schisandra, reishi, rehmannia, American ginseng), and relaxing herbs (valerian, California poppy, passion flower).
