Serendipity Retreat 
“A beautiful venue, stunning views and great company. Fantastic food with amazing dishes. We laughed and giggled, we swam and sunbathed, a few well chosen trips and a little evening merriment. But best of all I left there feeling fabulous.  Two weeks later using the tools I’ve been given I still feel fabulous.
My life style has changed forever, I can’t thank you enough. So much so I’m coming back in October to show you how much of a difference you have made.”   Jane

The body does not distinguish between actual stress or anxious emotions and thoughts; many clients I see live a stress-filled life full of constant emotional and mental stress and distress and an excessive amount of “busy-ness” with a lack relaxation and quality sleep.

Exhausted adrenals (the stress glands) affects a large percent of clients and cause a multitude of health problems, from exhaustion and weight gain to decreased immune function. Additionally, adrenal depletion via stress can result in mood disorders, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, hypothyroid and many more issues.

The adrenal glands are two walnut-sized glands located above each kidney. They are the control centre for many hormones including cortisol and adrenaline. Cortisol is produced in response to stressors such as pain and inflammation, glycaemic control (blood sugar) and psychological overload.

The primary role of the adrenal glands is to control energy levels and keep you alive during stressful events. Studies have shown that for every minute you experience stress, it takes 60 minutes to remove the flood of adrenal stress hormones from the bloodstream. Chronic stress creates a continuous production of cortisol which in turn imbalances insulin and many other hormones.

The majority of individuals suffering with weak adrenal function don't realise that adrenal insufficiency is the underlying cause of their symptoms, or that they can heal and restore their health naturally.  For vibrant health, hormone and emotional balance, prioritising the health and function of the adrenals is vital. Adrenal burnout is almost entirely caused by a high-stress lifestyle and poor foods. Initially, you must ensure your blood sugar is stable and your digestive system is in balance to overcome adrenal fatigue so a diet high in magnesium and B vitamins is essential.

The SRT (Stress Related Therapy) System in clinic screens your body for a Full Health MOT to confirm how you deal with stress, absorb vitamins and minerals and find the best solution as to how we re-balance your adrenals. It's like a health questionnaire for your body that will not lie!! Call Gail on 01249 818758
