Hello! Just looking for some advice! I'm currently suffering from CFS and I had some private Cortisol tests done, they've come back pretty low which I don't think will be helping my recovery.
CORTISOL (SALIVA) WAKING *4.930 nmol/L 6.00 - 21.00
CORTISOL (SALIVA) 12:00 <1.5 nmol/L 1.50 - 7.60
CORTISOL (SALIVA) 16:00 <1.5 nmol/L 0.00 - 5.49
CORTISOL (SALIVA) BEFORE BED <1.50 nmol/L 0.00 - 1.99
My doctor has discounted them and is doing a blood test instead.
I'm wondering what I should do to support my adrenals, i would love to hear some personal tips as online all the advice is so contradictory. I've started a adrenal cortex but then read that isn't a good idea. I've also been taking Ashwagandha, I've read about lots of other herbs that might help. I'm just conscious that my body is at a low ebb and don't want to overwhelm it.
Would I be better to see someone like Dr Peatfield? I just don't want to pay all that money to be told to take the same herbs I can get myself!
Big Hugs xx
