Wild Salmon is a great food which feeds the adrenal glands, thyroid gland and pituitary gland. It should be bright pink in colour if it’s wild. The paler versions are often farmed. It provides good levels of Vitamin A, E, D, B12 and B6 plus great levels of calcium, potassium and copper. All are vital for healthy skin, teeth, bones, glands and a balanced mood.

It is very high in protein and good Fats, which will ensure energy levels are high all day long.

The high levels of omega 3 oil in salmon is extremely beneficial for people with depression or diseases such as Alzheimer.

There is currently a lot of controversy surrounding omega 3 fish oils. Some say they cause inflammation in the body and some say it reduces inflammation. I have found it has only ever caused inflammation when people are using fish oil supplements. Many fish oil supplements are toxic and contain soya oil plus other fillers. Yes, this will cause inflammation in the body.

My advice is to eat the real deal. Yes we have heavy metals and mercury to consider, but as long as you clean the fish thoroughly before cooking and keep consumption to 2-3 times a week, the benefits will far outweigh the consequences.

It has taken Jennie and I 10 years to find a fish oil we are happy to recommend. Its quality is unmatched. Ask us for details.

If you would like to know more about how to feed your glandular system and which glands in your own body may be struggling, come along to our FREE body shape talks. Sign up to one of our 1 day and ½ day workshops where you can complete a series of questionnaires to find out if you are an Adrenal, Thyroid or Pituitary Type.
