Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy to treat the symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue
a unique six-session non-residential programme

When Adrenal Fatigue occurs
Adrenal Fatigue, or Hypoadrenia, occurs when the two adrenal glands (located in the back, near the bottom of the ribs on each side of the spine) do not produce enough steroid hormones, particularly Cortisol, to combat stress, whether this takes the form of physical stress such as surgery, injuries or poor diet, emotional stress with its origins in relational, work or psychological disorders, continual environmental stress arising from exposure to, for example, toxic chemicals and pollutants, and disease states such as cancer, AIDS, or lesser conditions including bronchitis and flu. Too much Cortisol, on the other hand, can lead to blood sugar imbalances, high blood pressure, insomnia and impaired cognitive performance. To combat Adrenal Fatigue, a healthy balance between these two extremes needs to occur.

The confusion relating to Adrenal Fatigue occurs when sufferers, who may have looked up their symptoms on the WWW and seen them identified collectively as a recognisable, specific, disorder, consult their GP and encounter a wall of deniability that Adrenal Fatigue actually exists - that is, if the doctor has even heard of it in the first place! Many medical practitioners, whilst admitting that adrenal insufficiency does exist in the form of Addison’s Disease, take the view that there is no scientific evidence to suggest that long-term mental, emotional or physical stress drains the adrenal glands. Regardless of one’s own viewpoint, there is no doubt that the conditions associated with Adrenal Fatigue are real and as such, we recognise it as a valid disorder.

Recovering from Adrenal Fatique
Recovery involves a complete lifestyle change which, of course, is a lot easier said than done. Adopting a positive attitude to life, despite your current circumstances, getting enough sleep, being in a healthy relationship, exercising (moderately), managing your finances, enjoying the work you do, having a worthwhile career etc. is all well and good but it begs the question - how can all this be achieved? If you are stuck in a dead-end job with no prospects, if you tend to catch any kind of illness that goes round, if you are constantly broke or if your partner is a complete idiot who you wish you had never met, let alone invested months, probably years, of wasted life with, then no amount of self help preaching or Deepak books are going to help you, regardless of how much you really want to change. This is where we at NLSMC come in.

Our treatment programme
The Initial consultation enables the therapist to get an insight into how Adrenal Fatigue is affecting your life, helping him to formulate and develop a programme that is fully tailored to your specific requirements. Together with hypnotherapy, the core element of our recovery programme, we utilise a number of psychotherapeutic techniques proven to be highly effective when dealing with Adrenal Fatigue, including Psycho Cybernetics, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt psychology, Neuro linguistic Programming, Mindfulness and, where appropriate, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). For an overview of these methods, and how they are likely to be applied, please click on the following:

Hypnotherapy takes a central role in accessing the subconscious and removing the negative feelings that have taken hold as a result of living with Adrenal Fatigue. To find out exactly how hypnosis will work for you, please click on the following:

A brief word on the subject of nutrition:
NLSMC therapists are not nutritionists and guidance relating to nutritional factors which may be contributing to Adrenal Fatigue feature very little in our recovery programme. What we do know, based on the simple fact that, at the height of the condition, our cells have used up much of our body’s stored nutrients and need replacing, a healthy and balanced diet is essential. Such a diet should contain the following:

30-40% Vegetables – eat a wide variety, half of which should be eaten raw or lightly cooked.
30-40% Whole Grains – such as brown rice, millet, barley, oats, quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat
10-15% Beans, seeds and nuts
10-20% Animal foods
5-10% Fruits
Any foods containing white flour, sugar and chocolate should be avoided, as should coffee, soft drinks, alcohol and black tea.
