Diet for Adrenal Weakness and Dysautonomia

Majid Ali, M.D.

I consider adrenal weakness and dysautonomia to be the two faces of the same coin. Dusautonomia (“dysauto”) is dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system, a part of the nervous system which directly or indirectly affects the structure and functions of nearly all body organs. It regulates the functions of the heart, blood vessels, muscles of the gut, body temperature and other body organs. Dysauto nearly always is associated with adrenal weakness.

Adrenal weakness and dysauto are is caused by toxicities of food, environment, and thought. What binds the effects of all such toxicities together in the final analysis is dysfunctional oxygen metabolism. I discuss this subject in other articles in my Dysautonomia Course.

Major Symptoms of Dysatunomia

* Lighthededness especially related to positional change.

* Weakness

* Cold hands

* Heart palpitations

* Anxiety

* Mood Swings

Diet for Adrenal Weakness and Dysautonomia

My dietary guidelines for controlling dysauto symptoms focus on:

* Prevention of sugar-insulin roller-coasters

* Correction of dehydration

* Prevention of excess acidity

* Avoidance of foods that cause fermentation in the gut.
