Does anyone have the same issues as I have, and found any solutions ?
I have low cortisol and take Adrenavive ...x 250 mg daily. This barely meets my need, and I still don’t feel well...have tried taking more than this but it’s not the answer.
Without any professional advice,..and the right advice at that,...I’m feeling that I may get somewhere on Pregnenelone rather than Adrenavive, but you can’t take Pregnenelone as well as HRT .
The Problem is, I can’t manage without the HRT..Estrogen only patch...been on it since total hysterectomy 25 years ago....it’s low dose..37.5..
But without it..or in any smaller dose..dryness everywhere is very bad...and worse, I can’t stop wanting to spend a penny...indeed the symptoms are like having cystitis...without actually having it. I’m a little inclined this way as it is...and have to avoid too much citrus etc.
Does Anyone out there understand all this...?
And if so..do you know if there is a way round things. Dr Frey of Ipswich , suggested the sex hormones will take care of themselves if the adrenals and thyroid are right ..
But how to achieve that ?! Been on Adrenavive a long time now and. To really getting anywhere
Haven’t yet spent money with Dr Frey....( all be the fourth private doctor ..not made of money ) so haven’t spoken of all this in depth...
Just wonder if there is a way to get off the HRT ..which has done me a great deal of food I feel...and I would stay on it..But would those symptoms ..urinary and dryness ...clear up...if I got off the hrt and started Pregnenelone ...
Sorry about the length of this post....maybe someone out there has trodden this road and found a way through.
