Natural cures for adrenal fatigue include simple home remedies, especially apple cider vinegar and Vitamin B complex. Often, adrenal fatigue is a lifestyle problem, but even when we know we should, it's hard to slow down. Natural remedies will increase energy levels, and who doesn't need that?
Our ancestors had it right when they lived a slow-paced, relaxed lifestyle, but very few of us have that luxury today. The problem is that our lifestyles have changed while our bodies have remained the same -- meaning that a lot of us feel tired all the time. This constant state of stress is hard on the body and can actually lead to a more complicated medical condition known as adrenal fatigue.
Is My Lifestyle Too Hard on My Body?
At time, we all feel unusually tired. Whatever the reason - a problem at work, a busy weekend, or just an especially stressful week – you shouldn’t feel tired all the time. Other characteristics of adrenal fatigue include morning fatigue, afternoon “low,” cravings for high fat or salty foods, mild depression, muscular weakness, lightheadedness when getting up from sitting or laying down, frequent sighing and several others. If you are experiencing any or several of these symptoms, it is likely that your lifestyle is too stressful for your body.
Will I Always Be Tired?
Many of us who experience adrenal fatigue wonder if there is any end in sight, often questioning, “Will I always be tired?” While it may seem that the nagging fatigue will never go away, you won’t and don’t have to live forever with chronic fatigue. However, you do have to make changes to help you feel better. If you are looking to “get out of the fog,” consider one of these natural remedies for treating adrenal fatigue.
1. Vitamin B-Complex
The B vitamins are responsible for metabolism in the body and help boost energy levels naturally.
2. Licorice Root
Licorice root helps the body use cortisol, a hormone that helps keep the body more effectively balanced, which also improves energy levels.
3. Coconut Oil
Virgin, organic coconut oil is a well-balanced fat. When paired with a whole foods diet, coconut oil helps sustain energy levels.
Unfortunately, adrenal fatigue is not a condition that manifests overnight, so it can’t be fixed overnight either. If you are dealing with this condition, stick to a strict regimen of reducing stress, staying active and using nutritional supports. Over time, you willl see the difference.

[YEA] First, see if you can find a doctor who believes in adrenal fatigue and do the cortisol saliva test. Alternative DR's, DO's, ND's are a good place to start. Prescription cortisol will help a lot.
If that doesn't work, try Adrenal Cortex 250 mg, 1-2 each in morning and 1-2 each at noon. It's important to take twice a day to keep the levels up through the afternoon
If that doesn't work enough, add Licorice root, 450 mg 1-2ea, 2 times per day. Licorice will help keep the cortisol that you do have, circulating longer.
I've been taking the Adrenal cortex for a few years, but adding Licorice root did make a positive difference. I didn't feel an "over abundance" of energy like a stimulant, but the afternoon "crash" doesn't happen and I can get a lot done.
