Podcast 379: Cortisol-Ease and Adrenal-Ease
Support adrenals, deal with chronic stress, sleep better without interruptions, relax in the face of overwhelming circumstances.
Martin: Hi everyone! This is Martin Pytela for Life Enthusiast, and with me again is my friend Elijah Free, a master herbalist from Earth Friend Herb. Today we are talking about adrenals. We discuss two formulas for adrenal issues, one known as Adrenal-Ease, and the other one known as Cortisol-Ease, and we want to unpack the purpose and application for both. Hi Elijah!
Elijah: Hi Martin! Good to see you again! Thank you for the opportunity to be here today, I am very grateful.
Martin: Sure! So let’s talk about your formulas! Why would you want to buy both? Isn’t it like putting one foot on the gas and the other foot on the brake?
Elijah: I call it wanting to go north and south at the same time, or left and right at the same time. Each one of these formulas has something very, very specific. Let’s address Adrenal-Ease first, which is a little easier to talk about. Everyone knows where their adrenals are, hopefully, but if not, they are twin organs, which are right above your kidneys. In our modern world, there are some things that happen in life that just absolutely exhaust us. The adrenals are very important organs, because they have a lot to do with our energy, and the adrenal formula has a few really great functions.
You can just take it if you are under a lot of stress – it is a fabulous formula for stress – you can take half a dropper three times, as it says on the bottle. You can also take it when you are low in energy. You could take it if you are too hyper as well. So if you’re having chronic fatigue or you’re really tired, your adrenals are exhausted, you’ve been through tremendous amounts of stress, you can’t get out of bed… you can start off the day with a nice, big, full dropper of the adrenal formula. You do that every two to three hours for a few days, until it reaches a saturation rate with your adrenals and then it will start to kick it. Now you can use the formula for up to three or four days. I’m not talking, weeks, months, or years. It would probably be harmless to take it for a longer period of time, but if it doesn’t help within these few days, then it is time you really need to see your doctor because there might be something else going on besides adrenal exhaustion. But for minor concerns, it does a wonderful job.
If you have food cravings, this is a good one, if you are eating a lot of sugar, you can’t stop eating… Take a whole extra dropper, and it will help. If you are waking up at night, we typically use the cortisol formula for that, so we will get to that in a moment.
Adrenal-Ease is for when your adrenals are tired, when you need more energy. You can use it before a physical activity or sport event. When I train and run or lift weights, I always take adrenal formula first, because it really, really, really gets me going nicely. However, this is for weight lifters out there, when you are done, you should take the cortisol formula after. When you are lifting weights, your body produces cortisol, and this formula actually will deplete the excess cortisol out of the muscles. So before your workout, you could take some of the adrenal formula, and then after, when you’re finished, you could take some of the cortisol formula, those two can work in tandem that way. But you don’t take both at the same time, as Martin said, it would be like one foot on the brake and the other foot on the gas pedal.
Martin: So the Adrenal-Ease is filling the bucket, and the Cortisol-Ease is draining it?
Elijah: Well, essentially, yes, I think that’s a very nice way to put that!
Martin: All right, so let’s talk about the Cortisol-Ease! I remember that you conceived it originally for the chronic stress people, who just have gone past the ability to cope with life and are now in the state of permanent stress.
Elijah: Well, I’m a war veteran, I’m actually a paramedic on top of it; I’m a trained combat medic, that is what my first duty was. I learned all of my original basic medical stuff in the military. So I made this formula for my fellow veterans. I was reading an article about how many vets with PTSD kill themselves every twenty-four hours, and it just broke my heart. So I created a formula that actually stops PTSD dead in its tracks. It actually neutralizes the neurotoxins in the body. Neurotoxins occur in nature all over the place, in jellyfish, poisonous spiders, rattlesnakes. Neurotoxins exist in the animal world, and cortisol in excess amounts acts like a neurotoxin, amazingly enough. So the first part of the formula just stops the neurotoxins dead in their tracks and neutralizes them. If half a dropper doesn’t work, take some more. It always works. I haven’t seen it not work.
Martin: Is there a limit of how much a person should take before they give up?
Elijah: I wouldn’t take more than four or five full droppers a day, but it’s pretty harmless. You don’t take it if you are pregnant, of course, and you don’t give it to kids, as it says on the label. There is what is called an adrenal stress index test, which is a saliva test taken four times a day, every six hours. This test will show what the cortisol is doing during the day, going up or going down. When your cortisol levels are chronically high, your body is literally poisoned with neurotoxins, and the more neurotoxins you have in the body, the more it keeps making so it is stuck in this high cortisol state.
Martin: And the Corstiol-Ease is capable of breaking this cycle? So when there is a person stuck in this high cortisol mode, replaying this traumatic memory over and over and just flooding the body with more cortisol, this will help?
Elijah: Yes, exactly.
Martin: Is it affecting the neural pathways, or simply discombobulating the excess cortisol?
Elijah: It actually does a few things. It is a really complex formula. First of all, it neutralizes the neurotoxins in the body. I want to mention that you don’t have to be a veteran for this to work. You could be a person that has been abused in a relationship, a wife, as a child, anybody, if you’ve been abused, if you’ve been beaten; anything, pretty much most people on the planet could use this product these days. It’s a wonderful formula, it’s one of our best selling ones.
Martin: If you find yourself unable to go to sleep, unable to let go of the persistent thoughts, if you are working too hard, too late into the night, and then you would like to go to sleep but find too difficult, take a nice large hit of Cortisol-Ease.
Elijah: Yes. A lot of times people keep it by their bed, and when they wake up at three in the morning, which is adrenal time, they take another dropper and go right back to sleep.
Martin: I hear a lot of people saying number one, I cannot go to sleep and number two, I wake up and I cannot go back to sleep.
Elijah: Yes, a lot of times it’s inappropriately spiking cortisol. If people took the adrenal stress index test, they would actually see how it works.
Martin: Is this product a permanent solution to this cortisol issue?
Elijah: It will help you in your current situation, but if you later go back into a situation like that, obviously it will start again, but it really depends on each person. I’ve seen war veterans heal faster than women who have been really horribly abused in a relationship. So it really depends a lot on the person, the inner work, there are so many variables, you know?
If everything in your life becomes peaceful, then you have the tranquility for the body to normalize and you no longer need the product. If you’re still in that situation, or going back to some stressful or traumatic situations, then it becomes a maintenance type of thing, and you will have to take it to maintain your sanity and health and everything.
Martin: All right, thank you very much, Elijah!
