Hi all yet again I am bed bound today due to adrenal levels being so low along with declining hypothyroidism. So desperate, mentally and physically......slowly loosing the battle to soldier on.
Writing this post causes me sooooo much stress because I am going against my mental capability so have to force my brain to work to find words etc. So far it has taken me 25 mins to get this far....I am in for a long haul here!!!
Synopsis of my present situation: started on trial dose of NDT 22nd Sept, worked up to 1 + 1/2 grains split dosing but stopping at this dose for now due to unresolved adrenal problem which I now need to start work on, but need some advice.
MORN 6 (7-30) Low: Should be close to top of range
NOON 3.2. (2.1-14.0) Below range
EVENING 4.7 (1.5-8.0) Not sure
NIGHT 2.5. (0.33-7.0) High should be at bottom of range
So here is where I would appreciate some advice/guidance please.
I plan to use adrenal cortex (ACE) for the lows and Holy Basil for the highs. Is this the right way to go about treating adrenals? Also re: dosing with the adrenal cortex in accordance with cortisol results above, 1 capsule morning 2 noon (cortisol is below range). Is this the right approach?
Also plan to dose with one capsule of Holy Basil at bedtime to lower the high cortisol level in hope of getting some sleep.
Just feel I have to do something otherwise I gonna rot.
Any feedback would really be appreciated.
