Even though I’ve followed the Paleo diet for years now, I recently learned that diet alone is not enough to keep you from disaster when it comes to your health. I had dealt with years of unmitigated stress and no actual outlet for that stress, and it caused me to go into severe adrenal fatigue this past spring. Trust me, as a mom of 2 small boys, adrenal fatigue is something you want to steer clear of. Watching your kids play as you lay helpless and exhausted from the couch is not the way you want your children’s youth to pass by.
Luckily, I have been able to bring my health back to places it hasn’t seen in over 15 years using the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol (I also have Hashimoto’s and Celiac) and through the help of a fantastic functional medicine provider. However, the one area I really do continually make sure I work on is stress management.
