I am not a doctor, none of the information on any of these pages pertaining to the Ketogenic Diet or Adrenal Fatigue should be considered medical advice and should not replace the care of your personal physician. I am simply eager to share the information I have learned while on my own journey to health. Before you embark on this journey, please consult with your physician.

One of the symptoms I experienced with Adrenal Fatigue was a feeling of being dead inside.

I felt almost nothing.

It was like feelings were calling to me through a deep, deep fog.

I could almost hear them…but then, maybe they were just a figment of my imagination.

As I’ve been healing over the past few years, I’ve begun to really feel again.

In some ways, this has been wonderful.

In other ways, not so much.

I used to battle worry and anxiety a lot.

When I say a lot, I mean that I could spend hours and days obsessing over something very minor and blow it way out of proportion.

This is partly how I came to have adrenal fatigue.

As I began to heal from adrenal fatigue, I also battled worry and anxiety in a way that I hadn’t battled in years.

Even though I knew it was a sign that my body was turning back on parts of me that had been turned off for years, it was still extremely difficult because while my mind knew that these fears were irrational, my emotions couldn’t seem to tell the difference.

It was like my life was suddenly turned into a huge drama and I had top billing.

Please let me exit stage right!

Instead of running from it or drowning it out by listening to podcasts and watching TV, I began to turn around and stare it right in the eye.

I spent a lot of time quoting Scripture to my heart, reminding myself of the amazing things God has done for me and my family, and instructing my heart of the goodness and love of God.

There are 5 powerful reasons why you can stop worrying right now.

One lesson I learned in all of this was that you can’t have panic attacks and rest at the same time.

It’s simply impossible for your mind to obsess over something – either real or imagined, for your whole being to be tied up in knots like that, and for you to be at rest.

The two states of mind and heart are completely polarized from one another.

You can’t release something to God and obsess over it at the same time.

“Lord forgive me for picking back up what I’d already laid at Your feet.”

Because if I’ve released something to Him, I must have the faith to trust that He’ll take good care of it.

After all, Scripture says, “Casting all your care on Him for He cares for you.”

1. God created every part of you with reverence and wonder. 

In the Hebrew, it literally says that God created your kidneys, which were considered to be the seat of the emotions.

In other words, not only did God create your physical body, but He also created your emotions and your spirit.

And He created you with reverence and distinction. The word wonderfully means “set apart”, “distinct”, and “distinguished”.

You are one of a kind. Uniquely His.

2. You are not lost.

In John 10, Jesus used the illustration of a Shepherd to describe our relationship to God. He is the Shepherd and we are sheep.

Sheep are basically defenseless animals. They don’t have fangs or claws to protect themselves from predators. They need a shepherd to defend them and lead them to food that won’t poison them.

They are also easily spooked and can’t digest their food properly if they are unsettled.

They know the voice of their shepherd and it reassures them that he’s nearby and that he’ll protect them. They’re not lost.

The voice of their shepherd gives them comfort.

And I love that picture of God and us.

God’s voice gives us comfort. We’re not alone, we’re not lost. Our Shepherd is defending us and protecting us. We can rest and be at peace in His presence.

3. Jesus has chosen you to be His friend.

We often quote John 15:13 as a true sign of heroic friendship. “Greater love has no one than this that someone lay down his life for his friends.”

Jesus stated this and then went on to say how He has chosen us to be His friends.

He said, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”

Not only did God’s Almighty hands shape us and create us; not only is He protecting us, but He considers us His friends!

4. God has chosen you to be His child.

There is no mathematical number high enough to calculate how many times I hear my kids call out “Mom!” in one day.

Seriously, it is a lot.

And while at times it is overwhelming, it is still beautiful.

My youngest went through a phase where if I was not in the same room as he was, he would call out, “Mommy, where are you going?”

He needed to be reassured that I was not going to leave him in the house alone.

He didn’t want to be left alone.

And you are not alone. In Romans 8, Paul was saying to the Roman Christians, “Jesus didn’t save you and then leave you alone. He saved you and then He sent the Holy Spirit to dwell inside of you.

But that’s not all.

The Holy Spirit is the trademark on your life that lets everyone know that you are now an adopted child of God.”

The day you were saved is your spiritual “Gotcha Day”.

And the Holy Spirit is the proof of that.

And because you are now an adopted child of God, you are not only never alone, you can call out to God, “Abba!” Literally translated “Daddy!”

5. God has chosen you to be His bride.

Over the past several decades the meaning of marriage has become muddled and distorted.

Not only has living together and homosexual marriage made a mockery of the marriage covenant, but now people are “getting married” to things – and even to themselves.

Today’s church fails to understand how deeply this offends God.

Marriage isn’t a state institution; it is a Christ institution.

God is the one who created the idea of marriage, and He created it for one purpose alone – to be a physical, visible representation of Christ and the church on earth.

This is what makes marriage so sacred, and this is what makes the distortion of marriage so serious.

God has chosen you as His bride.

He sacrificed Himself for you so that He could prepare you and beautify you to be presented to Himself as His chosen bride – flesh of His flesh and bone of His bone.
