Natural Treatment of Adrenal Burnout


I've read from alternative doctors that underneath ADHD, panic attacks, CFS, etc. is an adrenal problem and that after treatment, these problems have gone away.

I'd like to know what protocols and supplements have been used in rebuilding the Adrenal Glands.

Thank you.

The main thing is to first determine if you have to much cortisol or too little. That would determine the type of supplements you use.

I believe organic Macca Root Powder is the key to balancing the hormonal naturally and has been shown in recent studies to work very well in adrenal insufficiency, fatigue, exhaustion etc. It works on the pituitary and hypothalamus not the gland directly like other adaptogens so it doesn't "stimulate" like ginseng but rather nourish and support what needs it all over the body.

I have been diagnosed with low cortisol and my GP is not qualified to deal with it and too clinical to believe in Adrenal Fatigue/CFS so I am seeing an endo next month, in the meantime I going to get my organic Macca root, complement with Omega 3/omega 6 and get back into yoga nd mediation as both hypo and hyper are alledgedly all ultimately caused by stress.

Good luck and hope this helps,

Please let me know how that goes for you.

I'm also into meditation, as well as prayer.

I just came across this online:

"Some alternative doctors who specialize in rehabilitation of the adrenal glands will use gradually higher doses of the following.

Pantethine (900 mg to 1500 mg)
Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid, 6 g to 10 mg)
Vitamin C (as Magnesium Ascorbate, 500 mg)
Vitamin C (as Calcium Ascorbate, 500 mg)
Vitamin C (as Ascorbyl Palmitate, 1000 mg)
Bioflavonoids (1000 mg to 1500 mg)
Lysine (1000 mg)
Proline (600 mg)

The supplements listed above are taken in divided doses 2 or 3 times per day.

Then you can gradually introduce hormone supplements. Start with low dose (10 to 15 mg) Pregnenolone, since it is the highest up in the chain. You can then add DHEA along with the pregnenolone..

The progress should be gradual to prevent a relapse. If you suddenly feel super great, you should back off of the supplements and take it slow."
