There is an epidemic of fatigue running rampant in our society. Every morning, hundreds of thousands of women wake up to find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed, and overstressed.

Overview

There is an epidemic of fatigue running rampant in our society. Every morning, hundreds of thousands of women wake up to find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed, and overstressed. Groggily turning off the alarm, they reach for coffee, soda, or some other promise of energy. They suffer through the day—irritable, on edge, forgetful, depressed, and craving sweets. And then, at night, they have trouble sleeping. Diet and exercise don’t seem to change things—if they even have the energy to follow these programs. So what on earth is going on?

In Are You Tired and Wired?, Marcelle Pick, co-founder of Women to Women—one of the first clinics in the country devoted to providing health care for women by women—and the author of The Core Balance Diet, focuses on the root cause of these symptoms: adrenal dysfunction.

With all the stresses that exist today—from challenges at home and at work to environmental toxins to chronic health problems—the adrenal glands, which are responsible for providing the fight-or-flight hormones, can force the body to endure a constant flood of stress hormones that can ultimately lead to multiple health issues, especially severe fatigue.  The good news is that through diet, lifestyle adjustments, and reprogramming of stressful emotional patterns this can all be fixed!

Pick helps readers identify which of three adrenal dysfunction profiles they fit—racehorse, workhorse, or flatliner—and then lays out an easy-to-follow, scientifically based program to help them restore adrenal balance, re-gear their metabolism, and regain their natural energy to live a happier and less-stressed life.

As someone who has worked high stress, high-wire jobs my entire career, I was interested to hear Marcelle Pick's viewpoint about adrenal fatigue. When I received an advance copy from Hay House as part of their blogger program, I couldn't put it down. For anyone who is persistently run down, overwhelmed, or frequently suffering from minor illnesses like colds, you may have found your answer. Are You Tired and Wired? is very easy to read. Like Christiane Northrup, Marcelle explains the medical data in detail, and then anchors it with wonderful case studies. It's hard to believe any woman would not find herself, at some point in her life, within the examples. If you're a slower reader, don't let the "30 day program" reference intimidate you. Each chapter uses short quizzes and tables to identify the key concepts. (Curious how to navigate the herbal supplement aisle at your favorite health food store? Check out "The Herbal Pharmacy: Digestive Issues" table on page 91.) The month may fly by while you're reading each chapter in depth, but these tools will allow you to understand the main themes and start using them immediately. Chapter 6 provides a detailed adrenal-friendly eating plan, along with many easy recipes. I loved the use of pantry ingredients rather than a lot of specialty items. A small, but meaningful, element I noticed was the portion sizes. What a relief! (Am I the only one that thinks that most online recipe portions are huge?) The book closes with a fantastic resource and "further reading" section. These lists alone are worth the price of admission. I'm excited about implementing the ideas Marcelle presents. I'm rubbing my earlobes right now...

What I found so cool about "Are You Tired and Wired?" is that it can help many women finally put a name to what is causing them to be exhausted, moody, sleepy, sleep deprived or just plain ole' depressed. The answer? Adrenal fatigue. This book is an excellent resource in identifying where you fit on the adrenal spectrum and identifying steps to be taken in order to achieve optimum health. Ms. Pick not only identifies actions steps in terms of diet and supplements to take, but also includes the emotional work necessary to make any lasting improvement in one's life. My favorite part of the book? The delicious (and easy!) recipes for healthy eating and optimal adrenal function. I also loved that this book showed that relief from adrenal fatigue and the accompanying symptoms is something that one can overcome. Ms. Pick uses case studies to demonstrate this, which is quite inspiring for someone who may feel that feeling good is insurmountable. Thanks, Hay House, for another great read! I have this book displayed on my kitchen counter and frequently use it for go-to recipes. Delightful!

Marcelle does a great job explaining just what adrenal dysfunction is and offers an easy to take quiz for women to find out what category they fall into.

GET THIS BOOK IF YOU CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHY YOU ARE SO OUT OF IT OR DROP DEAD TIRED!!!! Even if you are not now, but constantly feel stressed out, you still NEED THIS BOOK. Just in case! Hay House sent me yet another wonderful book that I wish I would have had 15 YEARS AGO!!!! Marcelle Pick, MSN, OB/GYN NP, has really simplified what could be, and probably is, happening to women of every age. Adrenal Fatigue. I didn't even know there was such a thing. In this book she gives 3 categories and describes personality and habits in great lengths so that we the reader, can identify ourselves with these symptoms/behaviors. I for instance am a "work horse" and now know what happen to me at a very early age. ( It explains also what happened to my hormone levels and why Dr.'s always told me there was nothing wrong. )I now through this book, have the tools to correct the damage. Dr. Pick has also included tests to further your understanding of Adrenal Fatigue and then gives you clear and proven steps, with a diet, THAT WORKS. This book couldn't be easier to understand. Clearly written shopping lists, recipes, and MENUS. It's everything you need to get started and reverse what has gone wrong. I realized while reading this book that I could pinpoint a lot of women whom are in my life, inside this book. I have already recommended it to them and will be sending a few out as well. Every 20 Year old woman should be given this book so she is aware what the stresses of life can and will do to a woman's body!

A new pathway to healing for women, Are You Tired and Wired by Marcelle Pick offers compelling information about a silent epidemic that often goes undiagnosed. This syndrome includes both physical and psychological symptoms that sometimes seem contradictory, making diagnosis difficult. The author explains how your "biography becomes your biology" and by the time patients seek help, the condition has been chronically developing over many years. according to Pick, adrenal dysfunction caused by a lifestyle of chronic stress is a major cause of chronic fatigue, unexplained weight gain, frequent infections, insomnia and more. This book includes easy-to-use assessment tools to help the reader determine the presence and severity of adrenal dysfunction in their life, and detailed instructions for a holistic approach to treatment and recovery. The book provides a "30 day program for overcoming adrenal fatigue and feeling fantastic", including meal planning, shopping lists, recipes, recommendations and resources for mind, body, and spiritual support as well as fascinating case studies of women in a wide age range. If you are struggling with worry, mood swings, trying to be "everything for everyone", exhaustion coupled with moments of being "wired", caffeine addiction, weight gain, sleep problems and PMS, you may find the answers to your health issues in this comprehensive book.

"Your Proven 30-Day Program for Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue and Feeling Fantastic Again" This is another one of those fabulous, must have, books that I like to refer to as owner's manuals. Marcelle Pick creates a workbook where she teaches the reader about adrenal fatigue; how one comes to develop the condition and how the body malfunctions. In Part I, she defines the condition and explains that there are 3 categories that one might fall into. She has also created self assessments to enable the reader to determine their own category. One of the great benefits of this book is to help determine risk, and use the remedies in a proactive manner to help stave off Adrenal Fatigue. In Part II of the workbook she provides her proven remedies for successful management and reversal of the condition. These remedies include: nutritional support with suggestions for supplements and meal plans (with recipes included); exercise and lifestyle changes. There is additional information for those with Addison's Disease and Cushing's Syndrome. And information sections on Allostatic Load, Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load and a full list of resources and references for additional reading. This is very educational and a workbook that will be referred to often. In accordance with FTC guidelines I must disclose that I have received this book, for free, from Hay House, in exchange for writing reviews for Hay House's new book releases.
