Manage Stress with Adrenal Support

By Jodi Cohen

A focused work environment with a pair of glasses resting on an open notebook, beside a cup of coffee, with the backdrop of a person using a laptop, symbolizing productivity and organization.

“You can’t have a tug of war if you don’t pick up the rope.”

I love that quote.  I heard it from a preschool parenting coach and spent years trying not to pick up the rope, or engage in a fight, with my spouse, my kids, my in-laws, random strangers.   Sometimes I succeeded, but often I failed.

I attributed it to a character flaw.  “I just get so mad sometimes, I can’t stop myself from engaging,” I’d rationalize.  But as I started to learn about the adrenal glands and how they hold the body steady during stressful situations, I began to realize that it wasn’t a character flaw after all.  It was exhausted adrenals. Manage Stress with Adrenal Balance™ and heal adrenals with Essential Oils.


Heal Adrenals with Essential Oils

Take a moment and do this exercise with me.  Stand with both feet solidly planted on the ground.  If someone tried to push you over, how successful would they be?  Now, pick up one foot from the ground. It would be easier for someone to force you off balance, right?  Now close your eyes.  How’s your balance now?

The experience of trying to balance on one leg with your eyes closed is pretty similar to trying to navigate stressful situations with depleted adrenals.  The smallest incident could easily throw you off balance.

But, just as you can always place your two feet solidly on the floor, you can start to rebuild the resiliency and strength of your adrenals through diet, herbal supplements and the topical application of essential oils, like the oils in our Stress Support Kit™, including Adrenal Balance™, which has become my favorite go to for stress and those situations where I’m really tempted to pick up the rope.

I kid you not, I frequently sit and read an inflammatory email while inhaling the Adrenal Balance™ blend and am able to not respond or respond in a kind and compassionate way that diffuses the situation.  I wish I could claim credit for my new inner peace and wisdom.  But all the credit really goes to the Adrenal Balance™ blend.

So I have thus amended my favorite quote:

“You can’t have a tug of war if you don’t pick up the rope. And Adrenal Balance™ helps me not pick up the rope.”

I hope it works as well for you.  If you found this article useful, please share it with others or send us comments on your own experiences with the Adrenal Balance™ blend.
