"Preserved Through Motherhood" Part 5

Above Rubies article Preserved through Motherhood by Nancy Campbell. Continued...

Estriol, this wonderful pregnancy hormone, also has anti-aging properties.
Manufacturers are now using estriol in face creams to reduce wrinkles, maintain skin firmness, elsaticity and moisture content. This is just another proof of being preserved through motherhood. Every pregnancy will help your aging. I love this, don't you?

Adrenal Fatigue
Pregnancy can help heal the adrenals. I know a young mother who suffered with panic attacks because of going through a serious trial in her life. She feared getting pregnant again knowing she did not want to combine the traumatic panic attacks with pregnancy. Eventually, after much research she read that adrenal burn out could be remedied through pregnancy. She went ahead in faith, became pregnant and has not had a panic attack since. Adrenal Fatigue, The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, page 252 quotes, "Pregnancy helps adrenal fatigue because the fetus produces a greater amount of natural adrenal hormones than the amount in the non-pregnant female."

  1. .... UNLESS it is a stressful or hard pregnancy (the author continues/writes). If it a stressful pregnancy then it can contribute to, or lead to, adrenal fatigue.
