There is an epidemic of fatigue running rampant in our society. Every morning, hundreds of thousands of women wake up to find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed, and overstressed. Groggily turning off the alarm, they reach for coffee, soda, or some other promise of energy. They suffer through the day—irritable, on edge, forgetful, depressed, and craving sweets. And then, at ...more

A useful book which gets 4 stars instead of 3 because I think the fact that the author included an entire 30-day menu with the shopping lists and recipes bumps it up. If you wanted to take her 30-day eating program and follow it, you'd be able to do it really easily (assuming, of course, you like the things she suggests). The diet is very general and won't appeal to vegans, vegetarians, lactose-intolerant or those wanting to avoid soy but you could easily substitute some of those things out. An ...more

Okay, I get it. I have to reduce stress, exercise moderately, eat right (no sugar, alcohol, or "white food"), and heal emotional stress from the much more easily said than done.

Complaining aside, though, this book does seem to speak to a lot of the generalized problems that I find can decrease my quality of life. Will this be the springboard that finally helps me do what needs to be done? We shall see.

What I found helpful: The most helpful ideas in this book were centered around recognizing and handling stress in your life. I was impressed with the science behind the attributes of stress inducing issues with our bodies and health. There were some great tips on handling things from both an emotional and physical standpoint. I could see incorporating some of the smaller tips into your everyday life. There was some great eating strategies with re

Adrenal Fatigue was already something that my doctor had told me that I had. So when I found myself with the opportunity to review this book, I snatched it up.

Many of the things in this book were exactly what my doctor had gone over with me. However, you know how it is during doctor’s visits. I know that I usually walk out of there only remembering about half of what he tells me.

So this book helped to hone in on what Dr. Abrams had said. Plus it gave me the added benefit of working through thin

Not really anything new in this book.
I am a sucker for "Self Help" books, but then I don't really stick with the advice for my health.
The main points in this book are: Eat right, exercise--but don't overdo it, and take care of yourself.
On my Kindle a couple of the tables were so small (and unable to enlarge the font on these) that reading them was almost impossible.
Some of the odd things in this book are that she says to use a Gluten Free diet (for everyone) and also the emphasis she puts on get

Many things in this book backed up what I had heard from therapist, as well as things I'd self diagnosed. I can tell you that I took SOME of the advice (taking astralagus and a multivitamin) and while I'm still sleeping constantly, I AM in a great mental state. It explained why I feel better after hatha yoga but am drawn to hot yoga, and many other things I identified with. Not sure I'm ready to get off the nerve pills, and its just too hard to follow this strict of a diet, but I am trying to ea ...more

If you've read on adrenal fatigue much of the information is repetitive (a good thing). A pretty easy read. I picked it up for the 30 day program. She does provide all recipes and the daily eats, however
1. the shopping list doesn't say how much of each thing to purchase. Your fridge will be full
2. Recipe servings are inconsistent. Some are 1, some are 2
3. Recipes are 2 servings (difficult to split) but the menu only calls for it once, or the recipe is 1 serving but the menu calls for eating left

I picked this one up after being recently "diagnosed" with Adrenal Fatigue. I'm desperate for some help and while I'm working with a naturopath and getting supplements from her, I needed to know more about what's going on with me.

The case studies Pick uses could describe how I'm feeling to a T. I can't believe I never really thought something more than being overweight & lazy could be happening to me, but learning why I can't get up in the morning, why I have no energy all day long, why I'm cons

I found many useful ideas and tips in this read. Being a perfectionist type-A, try-to-do-everything person/Mom, it was a good reminder of things I already knew and Pick hit on some issues new to me, such as historical stress (and how that can come back and really make current stress much higher) and different therapies beyond "talk therapy" when it comes to figuring out how to handle issues. I was a bit disappointed she mentioned soy protein powder and tofu in several recipes, but overall, I tho ...more

Finished this a while back, it was SUPER GREAT. I even wrote a blog post about it! I wish I had read this book a few years ago, but back then it wouldn't have meant as much, so there you go. It was like reading exactly what's happened to me, and has helped fill in the picture of what happens with adrenal fatigue (all the details the doctor doesn't have time to tell you). It really drove home the causes and also everything you can do to help regain your help. Totally recommend it for anyone deali ...more

I got some helpful tips from this book. Aerenal fatigue seems pretty much like stress to me, but regardless, there were some good tips for self-care. This book includes recipes, menues, vitamin/herbal supplements, massage-acupunture-reiki..., pampering ideas, different types of mental counseling. I was able to pick amd choose what I want to try for me.
Recommended as a good way to get ideas to improve your life, even if you don't have adrenal fatigue.

I have suffered from nearly everything she lays out in the book for longer than you can imagine. After crashing and being diagnosed with Secondary Addision's, I had to start learning about adrenal issues without any help from the doctors in my city. I wish I had read this book 2 years ago and started on the path to healing sooner. Great information from a doctor. There is more to life and you CAN feel great...I promise.

Life changing. Provided the answer I'd been seeking for 15 years. Adrenal stress for women is rampant, particularly during and after menopause. The eating plan, shopping lists and recipes started me on a path to losing 30 pounds (18 months maintained and counting), and feeling better than I have in many years. If you are truly willing to understand what is preventing the healthy results you seek, and truly willing to make the necessary changes, this book is for you!

I read this book using Hoopla, a new app that let's you electronically check out library books. This book is very helpful for any woman in her 40's experiencing exhaustion and not sure what to try. She talks about adrenal function and offers a myriad of solutions. Highly recommend! Some things to get you started: Vit C, meditation, good sleep.

As if I don't feel enough stress (hence my problems with stress and fatigue and turning to this book in the first place), there is a lot to stress over on changing things in my life. I thought this was a good explanation and validation of symptoms I've had for a year, and the recipes are good, but I wasn't over the top impressed.

As I amble along in this health stuff, here is another book that was recommended. It's very helpful but did not teach much as I've been doing a lot of research myself already. The main idea is cut down on stress, exercise, eat right, SLEEP. I think all of these things help make me feel better and can help with not feeling so completely exhausted every day.

A must-read if you feel constantly stressed, exhausted and unhealthy. Great information on adrenal function and the immune system in general and how it effects how we feel on a daily basis. Some really good recipes and advice on living a balanced life and also on how to soothe and heal your adrenal glands which play a big part in our metabolism.

I liked it so much, I went out and purchased all the foods it recommended and looked up the website, spoke to the counselors and joined the program. I felt like someone wrote this book about me, and I have to do something...I've been on the program for 4 days now...I'll give a better review after the 30 day mark to let you know if it works. I'm crossing my fingers!

This was only vaguely interesting. A friend recommended something about adrenal glands, so I thought I would check this out. Took me a while to plough through, though, as I lost interest after a bit!

Marcelle's book offers women good common sense advice on steps to take toward a healthier life style. The recipes and step-by-step meal program are really helpful, and she does a great job explaining just what adrenal dysfunction is and how to figure out how it's affecting you.

Rehash of Core Balance Diet. If you've read that, don't bother with this. If not, some good info for you.

Loved this book. Great information. But like any meal/diet plan, so unrealistic for someone who doesn't cook and works 6am to 7pm 5 to 6 days a week.
