Cortisol — a hormone which is shut down when one is on high dose steriods for say an asthma exacerbation. In the last 5 weeks — I gained #14 pounds thanks to my own lack of cortisol and the chemically induced limbo my body was in. Plus activity intolerance. I took my last dose yesterday and started walking again this weekend. Baby steps and dropped 6 pounds. Much of it fluid shifts. But I’ll take it because we — My Body and I are feeling much more in balance.
The way to heal this state of being and get my internal chemicals back to states? No sugar, no salt, no alcohol. And loads and loads of water and potassium to help my kidneys clear the sludge.
Thanks for another great article. ❤
