cutting out NAX

Hi, I have been taking NAX for 5 months as instructed but do not feel it is helping me. My adrenals are OVERstimulated not under. I just spoke to the Manufacturers who advise that I should stop taking it as it is not recommended for overactive adrenals.

I am on 4 a day and wonder whether I should reduce gradually or just stop straight away?

I am currently experiencing quite extreme breathlessness on exertion which was how I was before my thyroid problem was diagnosed/first treated. I am also taking ndt and a whole host of other supplements.

Thank you People :-)

  • Sue,

    Adrenal function can be improved with optimal levels of Vit B12, Vit D, folate and ferritin and also supplementing a Vit B Complex ,Vit C Vit E, Fish Oils high in omega 3.

    NAX are quite potent and some don't get on with them. You could reduce to NA or even try Adrenal Cortex Extracts which only contains corticosteroids so there is no adrenaline to stimulate.

    Dr James Wilson advocates adaptogenic herbs that help the body to normalise the cortisol secretion. These particular ones can be used with high or low cortisol levels but still use with caution.

    Liquorice Root (not to be used with high blood pressure)

    Siberian Ginseng Root

    Ashwagandha Root

    Ginkgo Biloba

    I hope you feel better soon,

    Flower

  • Hi Flower :-)

    thanks, for your reply. I am taking Ashwaghadha , B12, D3, Folic acid, vit c bioflavinoids, Omega 3, CoQ10,. organic brazil nuts for the selenium. I think the only thing I will need to get, because the B vitamins were in the NAX, is a good B complex and Vit E which I haven't investigated yet. K2 on the way in the post. I was looking for adrenal support without the hormones in it but the good Dr said to persevere with the NAX :-(

    Anyway, my doubts about its appropriateness for me have been confirmed from several sources so its finished with.

    thank you Flower :-)
