Getting Out of the Tired Rut: Beyond Burnout & Adrenal Fatigue

Presenter: Dr. Jozef Krop MD (retired), HD, CNP and Joanna Krop MA, B. Ed, BRT

Fatigue and exhaustion seem to be the new normal – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Join Dr. Krop and Joanna Krop for an eye-opening presentation on the signs, symptoms and root causes of adrenal fatigue and how to get energy back. Dr. Krop and Joanna will dispel the myths that many believe about adrenals and your health—and help you as health practitioners understand the traps that keep energy in a vicious cycle of depletion. You will discover the patterns that maintain the path to burnout and understand why the usual advice of eat well, exercise, get enough sleep and meditate are not adequate measures to combat debilitating stress. Discover effective practices to release stress, restore vitality and reclaim wellbeing – physical and emotional.

Key Topics that will be discussed include:

• The signs and stages of adrenal insufficiency
• Myths and misconceptions about adrenal health
• Taking an ecological health history
• The most useful tests and resources for assessing hormone levels
• Effective herbal and dietary treatments for adrenal fatigue

• Components of a total-load assessment and system review
• The different types of stressors that impact health beyond just psychological factors
• Appropriate dietary measures
• Why cortisol is important and why it’s safe use for people who need it

Emotional Aspects of Adrenal Fatigue:

• Understanding how ancestral trauma predisposes us to weak adrenals and emotional stress patterns
• Uprooting emotional blockages that prevent the flow of healing energy
• Addressing the underlying motivations for a stress-filled life for people who cannot relax
• The importance of creating healthy boundaries with people and events to protect our vital energy
