I thought I would check whether anyone had posted about MM before and yes they had but some received some very negative responses.
They did ask whether the negative posters had researched the protocol, read his website/books or even tried one of the supplements he recommends; it's a fair question.
Can I just say that I am not trying to put the cat amongst the pigeons and want no unpleasantness on this thread please; surely there is room for everyone's views and experiences?
What decided me to post again on this subject is because I just been discussing what people are using to treat their adrenal problems and someone mentioned that they have success with taking Holy Basil for high cortisol problems. They kindly put the link; I had a read and the supplements (or adaptogens) that were recommended in the article are in the main, the same as MM recommends.
Some of the simple suggestions are for a juice made of celery every morning; that's hardly going to break the bank is it?
I can say that the supps/adaptogens he recommends do work; just not on all of the people all of the time.
My husband has an embarrassing bladder problem (good job he doesn't read what I write on here!) where he needs to go urgently like right now; this can be a real problem when we are out and about.
He took some of the supps/adaptogens recommended and he has had around a 50% improvement; that is categoric - it can't be anything else because nothing else changed in his diet.
I know of someone else who is hypo; she used to swear by NAX for treating her adrenals. She has now stopped taking the NAX because she feels her adrenals have improved so much that she can. Please note however, she did adopt a great deal of his protocol on diet and bought many of the supps he recommends (and some of them are very expensive but not all by any means).
She also used to get an urinary infection almost once a month; she had to take anti-biotics for fear of it worsening but did so very reluctantly. She specifically looked up what MM recommends for UI, took them and has never had one again.
Anyone interested in finding out more could go straight to his website but I would also recommend reading the reviews on Amazon (UK and USA) for his books; they are, in the main, impressive and intriguing.
