does it mean something in regards to adrenals condition or I'm maybe just a vampire? :)
Usually I get up in the morning and I'm fine for a 30 minutes or so, then comes dizziness and weakness which fluctuate all day until evening when I start to fell better so I can do something till 1 or 2 am.
This is typical in adrenal fatigue. Your diurnal rhythm is messed up. You get a small boost of energy in the early morning, followed by fatigue that follows you through the whole day...but you still stay awake until very late at night because around 11:00 PM as part of your bodies natural defense mechanisms your body gives you a surge of cortisol that lasts you until around 1:00 AM. It may feel nice to have that extra energy late at night... but by staying up you only deplete your cortisol levels further and screw up your bodies diurnal rhythm.
Fix it by doing the following:
* Ensure you are in bed around approximately 10:00 PM. Take some 5-htp, melatonin, and ashwasghanda to help you fall asleep.
Try to wake up around 8:00 AM, and start the day off with a glass of salted water, 2,000 mg of vitamin C, vitamin b5, licorice root, and adrenal extracts. Be sure to eat a breakfast that is equally high in fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Shortly after go for a walk, or do some light excercise to help stimulate the cortisol in the morning.
Repeat in the afternoon & again in the evening if fatigue persists.
Remember... every hour before midnight is equivalent to two hours of sleep. The sooner you get into bed, the better and more refreshed you'll be the next day.
Thanks a lot for tips but go to sleep at 10pm?? gush I start leaving at that time...:(
if I go to sleep at 10pm I would be up at 5-6am...
I usually don't sleep more then 6-7 hours but getting sleepy at work often between 2-4pm. I'll try that fix anyway, one of my problems is I never eat breakfasts maybe this is bad too.
Yes that is probably one of the big contributors for your daytime fatigue, not eating breakfast.
For the afternoon slump take another dosage of the vitamin C, Vitamin B5, adrenal extract, and have a very healthy lunch. Possibly go for a small walk if possible sometime in the afternoon. Train your body to get it's cortisol rhythm back on track so you ca have a smooth and energetic day, and restful night. Heal your body with the nutrients it needs and avoid stressors that put your adrenal glands into overdrive.
If you still feel too tired you can add in some more stimulating herbs to your daily vitamin regimen such as Siberian ginseng, licorice (licorice tea in the morning would be a good start to the day as well), or even small doses of supplemental cortisol from the supplement "Isocort". The amino acid l-tyrosine is great for maintaining alertness and energy throughout the day as well. There is actually research showing that at VERY high dosages l-tyrosine has similar effects to amphetamine!
