Feeling pretty low. I recently had a saliva test done, which was some 9 months after the previous one, and whereas the 1st was a stage 2 result for cortisol and DHEA, this latest one was a stage 3 result. So quite a shock, especially as I have been supplementing with Nutri Adrenal and some Thorne ACE during that time. Though I don't take much of the Nutri Adrenal now as I increased to 2 tabs (200mg) plus 100mg of the Thorne and got very shaky, so I reduced to a lower dose.
However this may have been partly due to taking Ashwaghanda as well during that time. In fact I'd been taking Ashwaghanda for several years, thinking I was supporting my thyroid. But recently I noticed(from SeasideSusie), that adaptogens lower cortisol. So I've not been doing myself much good !!!
I thought adding some Pregnenalone would help, but after only a few days it seems to have exhausted me !
So I seem to be at a loss as to the way forward now, and would really appreciate some help ?
