Adrenal Recovery Program!

The 4 week Adrenal Recovery Program

 

What is it and who is it for?

The adrenals glands are a part of the body’s endocrine system and are responsible for our stress “fight or flight” response. They are the glands that produce cortisol – our “get up and go” hormone in the day time and adrenaline – which makes us run for our life or fight for our life with super human speed and strength.

Adrenal glands can be compromised from long-term illnesses & disease like viral infections as well as stress and anxiety, all of which place a significant amount of stress on the body. Adrenal Fatigue (known as Hypoadrenia) is one of the most common causes of illness today and manifests within a broad spectrum of disorders.

Being under constant stress and over-doing it in life, as well as illness & disease can put the body’s natural biological timing, alignment of the meridians and energy cycles of the body out of balance. This can result in sleep disorders, which then compound the problem and we can feel tired upon waking and energised when we should be getting ready for bed.

Who is prone to getting Adrenal Fatigue?

• Are feeling constantly feeling exhausted and fatigued?
• Do you have small children & feel the need to drink a double shot expressos coffee to get you going in the morning, snacking on chocolate during the day and night and need to wind down at the end of the day with a big glass of wine or a cold beer?
• Do you get interrupted sleep, waking either from someone or something else or because your own body habitually wakes you up during the night for some reason?
• Do you average 7-8hrs of solid sleep per night and still wake up tired?
• Are you always tired, especially at the 2-4pm mark in the afternoon?
• Do you have lots of mental simulation and screen time like social media, gaming or getting lost into an online series or show for hours on end?
• Are you a workaholic and find yourself on the computer screen late into the evening or early morning, over-doing it?
• Do you have the occasional party, drinking too much alcohol, staying up too late and find it hard to recover the next day?

If you have answered “yes” to any one of these questions above then you may be prone to getting Adrenal Fatigue.

The good news is that you fit into the category of being able to benefit greatly from the Adrenal Recovery Program!

Why this program?

The reason I created ‘The Adrenal Recovery Program’, is because I see so many signs and symptoms of adrenal fatigue in my clinic that a lot of people think are normal tor apart of getting old. Not feeling your best can be normal throughout some phases in life though these phases should and can be short-lived and not be just accepted as a new way of being.

My intention is to assist everyone who experiences Adrenal Fatigue in returning to their optimal state of wellbeing. I want my clients to experience all that they love in life with balanced energy levels and vitality. The Adrenal Recovery Program is for the people that like the idea of B A L A N C E in all that they do, being able to have fun and then recover from it effortlessly.

Joanne Farrell
Transformational Kinesiologist
&Energy Worker

 

 

 

Joanne is a registered Kinesiologist and certified Educator of Transformational Kinesiology & Energetic Anatomy. Kinesiology is a dynamic modality that taps into your unconscious and identifies specific issues that may be causing physical congestion as well as negative thought and feeling patterns. Using a holistic approach, we can locate which part of your biochemistry, physical structure, or emotional condition requires priority attention, so that a treatment is tailored to your specific needs. Joanne works with a focus on the body’s physiology systems including digestion, circulation, hormonal, liver detox pathways and immune health. Applying detailed scientific data covering cellular integrity, DNA, oxidative stress, neurology, nutrition and brain function – all aspects of your health are addressed.

With muscle testing we can prioritize nutritional supplements that are right for you in the now; and support your nutritional absorption with kinesiology processes. Your nutrition is key to good health and your body has its own unique history of illness and ability to function – we offer you a tailor-made program that is specified by your body’s preference, indicated through muscle testing.

Why join the Adrenal Recovery Program?

If you want to live with more energy, vitality and feel excited for the day ahead, if you would like to have clearer skin, clearer thoughts and a clear mind, to help you make better decision in your day, if you would like to have a renewed sense of creativity and awareness then this program  is for you.

Undertaking the program together provides much more support and commitment to help you achieve your health goals than doing it alone. It can make it more fun for you, help you to build a community of likeminded people who support each other, which then supports our families, communities, cultures, and helps to move the world forward to a more peaceful, vibrant and healthier expression of itself!

How does it work?

The reason “The Adrenal Recovery Program” is so successful is because our adrenal glands produce the stress hormones of our body called adrenaline and cortisol & when they are constantly triggered by our western-culture lifestyle choices (some of which I mentioned above) then our body starts to think that it’s under a constant level of stress (or danger) and it responds over time by trying to save our lives! It can do this in many ways by producing hormones, which is a fancy word for messengers, to either slow our body right down to conserve energy and go into storage mode, or in some cases speed up to an almost out of control state.

In the body the hormone response can look like a variety of different signs & symptoms:

• Fatigue, lethargy, low energy levels, energy levels that crash throughout the day
• Poor sleeping patterns, finding it difficult to get to sleep, waking up throughout the night, waking up still feeling tired, difficulty getting up in the morning
• Waking up late and still feeling tired, sleepy at 3pm but feel wide awake in the late evening
• Weight gain, finding it hard to lose weight or regulate your weight
• Anxiety, panic attacks, depression or flat moods.
• Decreased ability to handle stress
• Foggy head, headaches, poor concentration & memory. Decreased productivity
• Hormonal imbalances, irregular periods, PMS, reduced sex drive
• Skin irritations, strange breakout
• Increased symptoms with inadequate amounts of food or frequency (hypoglycemia)
• Cravings for salty foods
• Light headed when standing up suddenly
• Increased time to recover from illness

What can you do about it?

To help restore your adrenal glands back into healthy regulation and safe expression of stress hormones, it’s essential that the adrenal glands have a rest from everyday life and get some special attention. On the program we work with you to help create a new path towards optimal health, wellness and recovery.

Why 4 weeks?

A human blood cycle (which is how long it takes to renew every single red blood cell in your body) is about 120 days/4 months, so starting you on a supported program for the first quarter (1 month) of your new blood cycle is an amazing way to lay the foundation for renewal of your blood and overall wellbeing. The first quarter is where most of the challenges can arise so it’s important to feel supported and informed during this phase.

What’s included?

The Adrenal Recovery Program includes;

  • 2x Naturopathic / Nutritional consults with Grace:
    Grace will review your health timeline, forming a matrix of your health journey to date, taking a look at your individual body systems and how your body is functioning to identify how to get your body operating at its optimum levels. It’s important to be honest when answering these questions. The process helps Grace to discover underlying illness & disease and helps identify where your body may need extra support
  • 2x Kinesiology & Energy Medicine Session with Joanne:
    Joanne will use kinesiology to muscle test the body’s priority of healing to find out what system, organ or glands are most in need of support first. This will help to reveal what nutrients you may be need to help you reach optimal health. Every case is individualised and may require more than one session depending on the issues.
  • Adrenal Recovery Guide Book; This is a supportive guidebook packed full of resources to help you throughout your Adrenal Recovery Program and beyond.
  • Adrenal Recovery Menu & Meal plan;
    The menu gives you meal options for your 4 week program and the meal planner covers a 7 day period of Adrenal Recovery friendly breakfasts, lunches and dinners as well as snack ideas to help you create your food to be your medicine.

    You will receive some of the core recipes included in the 7 day meal plan as well as an Adrenal Recovery friendly shopping list that you can take to the shops to help you buy the recommended foods in the 4 week program. We use ‘Food as Medicine’ in the program and this means eating whole-foods and avoiding the top inflammatory food triggers.
  • Kinesiology Work Books
  • Online access to our Private FaceBook Group page, with practitioner support

Testimonials

It is a game changer in one’s life and one of the best things you can ever do for yourself

I have twice attended the Adrenal Recovery Program, expertly facilitated by Joanne Farrell and Grace Hawkins and can honestly say it has changed my life for the better in so many ways - nutritionally, emotionally and in my over all energy levels and well being. The combination of the Kinesiology and Naturopathy support healing on many levels, restoring the body through food, good nutrition and self care.

The weekly group sessions have helpful guest speakers and exercises and are a great way to get support from Joanne and Grace as well as the other participants. It felt a bit like Adrenaholics Anonymous - as we were all there to make positive change in our lives through supporting each other.


The tailored guidance from these two knowledgeable and gracious women is at the core of this program. I am still drinking celery juice every day and love having more energy and better sleep and a clearer head. Everyone should do this - it is a game changer in one's life and one of the best things you can ever do for yourself.

I couldn’t believe how much energy I had after the program. At long last I felt healthy, clean, motivated, energetic, happy and balanced.



When I started the Adrenal Recovery Program I was so exhausted. I had spent the previous 6 months feeling flat, sluggish, unmotivated and overall not super happy. I couldn’t understand why I was feeling this way. I ate healthily (well, most of the time), I exercised regularly and I had a good life. But something was just not right. That’s when I signed up for the Adrenal Recovery Program.

I am not going to lie, the first two weeks were tough to get through but with the constant support of Grace and Joanne I made it through the other side. I couldn’t believe how much energy I had after the program. At long last I felt healthy, clean, motivated, energetic, happy and balanced. Both Grace and Joanne are very inspiring women. They are very real. They understand there is no right or wrong and overall they are a fantastic team to coach you through the necessary changes.

I would recommend this course to everybody. I think each and every very one of us should experience the healing nature of food and how good it feels to be functioning at our best.

Thank you Grace and thank you Joanne I appreciate all you help and support.

I heartily recommend both this Program and the two facilitators: just do it.



I signed up to do the 4 week Adrenal Recovery Program, specifically to help me with menopause-related hot flushes, restless sleep, and fluctuating energy levels. Luckily for me, I love celery, so the daily juices were delightful; after the first week, I started to sleep more evenly, and appreciated the more regular eating patterns as well (I've absolutely stuck to this). The combined sessions with Naturopath Grace are such a smart, well-rounded way to approach a lifestyle change for the better, and getting various blood tests as well gave us such valuable scientific data to work on too. I stuck to the Program religiously, then a week after it finished went trekking in Nepal for 3 weeks: I had NO hot flushes, slept well, and had consistent energy every day! My 18yr old son was very impressed. I heartily recommend both this Program and the two facilitators: just do it. With gratitude, G

    A friend and I have been looking into doing the adrenal diet and another friend of mine recently completed your course and highly recommends it, the problem is that myself and said friend are both in Sydney. Is there anyone you know of that runs a similar course down here or any reputable practitioner you suggest we get in touch with?
