Hi, folks, I've been wondering what is other people's experience of finding the best adrenal support. I know that different things may work for different people. There may be something that I have not heard of that I could try, that could do better for me. The situation is I had recently realized that though it's a year since I have been treating myself with NDT and T3, I am far from well, even though I've addressed low iron, and I take very good vitamin and mineral supplements. I have some good days when I think that I am getting better, and then I crash down again for several days on end. I have many of the symptoms of adrenal deficiency listed in Stop the Thyroid Madness, and for several months now I have been treating myself with adrenal glandular, Vit C, Vit B's, and Ashwaganda. The reason why I ask is that I have been wondering whether I need prescription medication, such as cortisol, or hydrocortisone (I am not sure if that is the same thing). The thing is that I have a lot of stress in my life, as someone in my family has Asperger's Syndrome, so minimising stress is next to impossible for me. Perhaps the prescription medication would help with my adrenals, but is it safe for long term use, or would I not need it for too long? I would be grateful for any suggestions or comments, Thanks, Lindygiles.
