Practitioner Corner: 3 Tips for Correcting Adrenal Fatigue and Exhaustion

By Ritamarie Loscalzo

You are going to encounter people suffering from adrenal fatigue ever day in your practice  They won’t necessarily come to you saying I have adrenal fatigue, although may sophisticated health seekers may.

The issues they will present with are fatigue, mid afternoon energy slump, brain fog, memory loss, hair loss and thinning, loss of libido and difficulty falling asleep.

They won’t necessarily present with all of these, but usually several.health practitioner consulting

Your job as a holistic practitioner is to ask the right questions and make a correct assessment.  Once you do, it’s a matter of coaching them about the diet, herbal, supplemental and lifestyle approaches that will rebuild their adrenals and restore their energy.

There are lots of herbs and nutrients that will help rebuild weakened adrenals.  The cornerstone is appropriate diet and lifestyle management.  Many practitioners simply prescribe adrenal herbal formulas without looking at the underlying cause of the adrenal burnout.


My top 3 strategies for restoring adrenal function include:

1. Identifying and correcting the underlying stress, whether its physical, emotional or related to tier diet . This needs to include an effective system of stress transforming, such as Heart Math (www.heartmath.org).

2. Identifying and correcting blood sugar imbalance is an important step in restoring adrenal health.  I suggest you have your clients purchase an inexpensive blood sugar meter and test their sugars.  Cortisol, the stress hormone, raises blood sugar by breaking down muscles and lean body mass.  My B4 Be Gone program is the perfect solution for blood sugar imbalance, and my Insulin Resistance Practitioner Program teaches you as a health professional how to coach your clients to balanced sugar levels.

3. Remove dietary stressors, especially gluten, sugar and processed fats.  These disrupt digestion, cause inflammation and impair the absorption of key nutrients.

These are just a few of the strategies I share in my Correcting Adrenal Fatigue and Exhaustion (CAFE)  program.  We just graduated our first 450 students from that program and it’s almost ready to be offered as a self-study.

Learn these strategies well.

Experience them for yourself so you can be a highly effective teacher.


With love and appreciation,
