I realise there have been many posts written on this subject, but thought it preferable to start a new one:
I have been wondering if I should try Nutri Adrenals as it seems (this is how interpret previous posts here) that they actually help heal the adrenals?
I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue back in 2011 by Hertoghe doctor, put on Medrol (doctor said I should not be on HC as I tended to retain fluid, but that could be because I had spent ten years on T4 only and had low FT3 levels in blood and almost undetectable levels of T3 in 24 h urine analysis). Anyway, I spent three years on Medrol, taking 6 mg daily at most and 4 mg daily most of the time, and actually did well on it. But it's a powerful steroid and I did not want to stay on it indefinitely, so managed to wean it off. It wasn't easy, but not that I am finally off it I'd prefer not to go back on it.
I'd also prefer to stay off HC (I know it can be ordered online) for much the same reason; even if "natural", it's still a powerful steroid, and some claim both Medrol and HC can make the adrenal glands sluggish...which of course is the opposite of what I am trying to achieve here.
I have been on American Biologics Adrenal Cortex for some time and feel it's beneficial, but maybe not powerful enough...it feels like something is lacking energy-wise.
However, I understand Nutri Adrenal contains whole adrenal so adrenaline...?
But since it's often recommended by Dr. Peatfield (who I understand works much like Dr. Hertoghe) it must be good, although it contains adrenaline which is often said to be overstimulating in patients with adrenal fatigue...?
I have been doing a lot of research lately on adrenal fatigue support supplements, and Nutri Adrenals seems to be getting consistently good reviews. However, before giving it a try, I'd appreciate feedback (good or bad) from those having tried it.
