I’m Dr. Tara Michelle, and I’m a natural physician, educator, and wellness weaver.
With over 20 years of experience in integrative healthcare settings, I am passionate about advancing integrative medicine through natural solutions and education for Empaths in particular.
An empath is someone who can sense the emotional or physical energies around them as if they were their own.
They have a supercharged sensitivity to whoever is around them, and a great capacity for healing.
They are the healers of our world.
The traits that define them are overwhelmingly positive: a deep sense of compassion, the ability to tune in to other people’s emotions, and develop meaningful relationships, a knack for appreciating the world around them with heightened senses.
Empaths are sensitive souls, and we tend to take on an overload of emotional stress and energy on a daily basis due to our compassionate nature.
In fact, many empaths are so tired of the emotional strain that they have developed some kind of adrenal dysfunction.
Why Are Empaths At Risk?
If an empath’s boundaries are not properly fixed, they might find themselves giving too much to people and situations that drain them.
They might find that certain places (such as any crowded gathering) get them feeling tense and anxious and that it takes them a long time to recover.
All this burden-energy running unchecked through them can result in skyrocketing levels of stress hormone production (cortisol) and, obviously, in near-constant stress.
This, eventually, leads the adrenal glands (just above the kidneys) that normally produce enough hormones to support healthy energy levels to collapse.
Thus, fatigue ensues…
The Symptoms of Worn Out Adrenal Glands
A constant fight-or-flight state, induced by external stress taking residence in the body, can lead to worn out adrenal glands.
Cortisol levels are through the roof, and the hormones that’d keep them balanced are simply not enough. This leads to some common symptoms:
– Too tired to do much
– Difficulty sleeping
– Not being able to deal with stress anymore
– Disrupted biological rhythm (feeling more energetic in the evening)
– Craving salty and unhealthy foods
– Weak immune system (falling ill often)
– Overusing stimulants (ie. coffee)
– Anxiety and mood swings
Long-term, not supporting adrenal health can result in health-deteriorating effects. These can be both physical and mental.
The Short Adrenal Health Test
The self-exam one can do at home is the pupil dilation exam…
Darken the room and shine a flashlight across one eye (not directly into the eye) and watch what happens in the mirror.
Under normal circumstances, the black pupil in the center should immediately contract and stay contracted.
However, experiencing low adrenal function, the pupil will not hold the contraction easily. It will soon dilate (open) in spite of having a light shining on it.
So.. How can one start supporting their adrenal health exactly?
The Simple Science of Adaptogens
First, what’s an adaptogen?
It’s a plant-sourced, fungi-sourced, or mineral substance that works to regulate stress hormones and optimize your body’s ability to deal with pressure.
They can affect hormone production directly, or calm the mind to create a more focused consciousness— they simply balance whatever is out of tune.
No wonder these herbs have been used for thousands of years!
So for empaths dealing with low energy… mood swings… or stress and anxiety…
There’s a good chance that the adrenals are to blame.
Now here’s the good news…
For those looking to improve their energy, stress, and mood…
There’s actually a very simple step that can help.
Specifically, my team and I have now identified 7 ingredients that can help maintain healthy adrenals…
We call it the ‘Empath Switch’, a formula that is 100% natural and very inexpensive.
