Cod Liver Oil Helps with Chronic Pain and Fatigue
The benefits of Cod Liver Oil (CLO) are so many that I recommend the supplement to most of my patients. The Omega-3 fatty acids contained within CLO are incredibly beneficial to all cells and all processes in the body.
We all tend to be deficient in omega-3s, especially those of us under too much stress over time. Research shows Cod Liver Oil is of great benefit in the treatment of fatigue, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, immune weakness, and all other stress-related symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue.
My Top Recommendation for Cod Liver Oil
Green Pasture’s Royal Cod Liver Oil is the brand of CLO that I recommend most often, based on quality and natural processing. This natural source of fat soluble vitamins is far safer than taking synthetic vitamins; it’s essentially a food.
The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K are crucial to your healing process.
Royal Cod Liver Oil has far more omega-3s than flaxseed oil. (In fact, flaxseed oil has to convert into what cod liver oil already is.)
Royal Cod Liver Oil contains Vitamins A and D, which other fish oils lack, and it is also combined with Butter Oil, which supplies Vitamin K. These fat-soluble vitamins are crucial to your healing process.
The History of the Benefits of Cod Liver Oil
Dr. Weston Price discovered high-vitamin butter oil back in the 1930s, but the pinnacle of his discovery was when he combined it with cod liver oil.
Fermenting the livers of fish to extract the oil is an old-world practice. The 1850s saw the beginning of the industrial food revolution, and the first time cod liver oil manufacturing changed from its sacred historical roots to an industrialized food. Some fish oil manufacturers have turned back the clock and restored these sacred foods to their roots.
Dr. Price traveled the world, studying the traditional diets of many cultures. Within every culture, he discovered sacred foods that were carefully collected and prepared to ensure the strong mind, body, and spirit of its people. Cod liver oil is one of those foods.
Why I Recommend Cod Liver Oil to Almost Every Patient
Research suggests that the Standard American Diet is deficient in the Essential Fatty Acids and especially the omega-3s. This deficiency leads to many diseases in our society because these fatty acids work on such a deep, cellular level.
Over time, regular consumption of Cod Liver Oil helps with depression, insomnia, and energy levels.
Our Standard American Diet is also deficient in fat soluble vitamins. Research supports that Vitamin D deficiency and its connection to disease. Over the next couple of decades, we will have similar research about Vitamin A and VItamin K.
Five (of the Many) Benefits of Royal Cod Liver Oil:
#1 Replenishes much needed omega-3 fatty acids and acts as an anti-inflammatory
#2 Is documented in scientific studies to help with anxiety and depression
#3 Helps heal the damage stress hormones do to the brain, alleviating brain fog and ADHD
#4 Balances the immune system, which helps to prevent frequent illness
#5 Assists with blood sugar control and the prevention of cardiovascular disease
How Cod Liver Oil Helps Adrenal Fatigue Patients Heal
Cod Liver Oil has two main components, the omega-3s and the fat soluble vitamins. The omega-3 essential fatty acids are crucial to proper cellular function as well as cellular repair. These fatty acids get into the cell walls all over the body and improve the overall function of the cell.
The fat soluble vitamins in the Royal Cod Liver Oil Butter Oil mix, vitamin A, D & K are incredibly important and yet deficient in society today. Vitamins A, D & K actually act more like hormones in the body, orchestrating and promoting the healing process. So, as your body shifts physiologically into “healing” mode (as you turn on the rest and digest side of your physiology, which is essential for healing Adrenal Fatigue), these vitamins will be needed to orchestrate and control your healing process on a cellular level.
You should not expect to “feel” anything directly from taking CLO. In time, however, it will help with anxiety, depression, insomnia, pain, and energy levels.
