Dr. Berg talks about if is it safe for menopausal women with adrenal fatigue to do ketosis and intermittent fasting. The answer is YES. The adrenals are normally supposed to help counter a drop in blood sugar and when you do intermittent fasting with adrenal issues, you could have a hard time because of the drop in blood sugars. The hormone called cortisol is what is called a glucocorticoid, which is a glucose regulating hormone. So the adrenals are definitely connected to blood sugars. Cortisol if too high can mobilize more sugar and even turn your body protein into sugar thus raising your insulin and even causes insulin resistance or diabetes. So in other words, if your cortisol is high, chances are you could also have high insulin. This means you need to do things to lower insulin – ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting!
Here are some tips: 1. Take electrolytes to increase potassium and other minerals 2. B vitamins (nutritional yeast) 3. Sea salt - the adrenals need more sodium, because they lose more. 4. Trace minerals, esp, chromium and zinc. 5. More protein 6. Omega 3 (Krill is great) 7. Take long walks 8. Go slow - go at this gradually and eventually you'll be in full keto adaptation and no longer running only on glucose (avoid the blood sugar swings).
Hi guys, in this video we are going to talk about is it safe for a menopausal women with adrenal fatigue to do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting. There are some confusion about this things are floating out there that says it is dangerous and don’t do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting if your adrenals are stressed especially if you are going through menopause but it is the exact thing that you need to do but you need to do it correctly. The problem is that when you get into your 40’s to 60’s, the adrenal gland takes over and backs up the ovary so you actually put more stress on the adrenal gland so what happens it has a hard time countering this drop in blood sugar as you go longer between three meals when you do intermittent fasting. The blood sugars are not able to rebound like you should so you feel dizzy and weak and all of the sudden you eat and feel better and then you think that you would need to eat more frequently, No. It just means that we need to strengthen the adrenals and tweaks some things because here is the main issue, with adrenal fatigue you are going to have higher levels of cortisol. Cortisol, another name for cortisol is called glucocorticoid – that is a glucose releasing hormones. When cortisol is high, you are going to release more glucose which is more sugar and increase more insulin. Adrenal problems in general have higher problems in insulin and we are trying to fix that because the insulin is going to create the insulin resistance and keep people from losing weight. So if you are trying to lose weight and you are menopausal and stuck, you need to do ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting but you want to do it more gradually.
