  • Having healthy adrenal function

    Do you ever feel like you are on your last nerve and dragging through your daily activities with low energy? You may have stages of adrenal exhaustion. Weakened adrenals effect hormones since the adrenals are involved in balancing the hormones. Men and women need a regulated amount of estrogen and a balance of estrogen and progesterone.

    But I remembered this week when I came across a Christianity Today report, “Why Everything Looks Like Jesus” – the face of Jesus in a piece of toast or in a cloud, a slab of marble, a slice of pizza.
