Adrenals / Stress / Low Energy
Do you wake up feeling tired, hit a wall mid-afternoon, or feel so wired you aren’t able to rest well? The energy struggle is real! Sometimes we just need to slow down and take time to rest, but if you have something deeper going on, all the rest in the world still won’t give you the energy you should have. Your chronic fatigue may be related to nutrient deficiencies as they impair cellular energy production. It may also be related to food sensitivities, inflammation, blood sugar dysregulation, or your adrenals/HPA axis and hormone balance.

I was feeling tired all the time. I was running out of energy by the afternoon, and things seemed up hill for the rest of the evening. I knew I needed help since I had already failed at helping myself. Leslie was the right person at the right time for what I needed. We sat down once a week to talk about nutrition and eating habits. In five weeks, I lost a total of four inches and gained so much energy. I had more energy in the evenings, more mental focus during the day, less cravings for bad foods, and did not feel hungry between meals. She taught me how to eat the way my body wants and needs to eat without some crazy, fad diet. I appreciate Leslie for her encouragement and her follow up with me after our five weeks together. She offered me so much grace and convinced me I had the guts to meet my goals. I learned to give myself a little grace sometimes. Thank you Leslie!
