Lisalea, I got to read about 2/3 of the article. It is really good and thanks so much for posting!! I'm going to print this off and give to my NP. Some days I feel like I have CFS and as it IS connected to the adrenal problem, he can use all the 'help' he can get
One of word of caution tho........... ............on the chocolate...........adrenal sufferers are supposed to avoid caffeine..
 Was the nickel info, as well as the food info in this article? As I said I didn't get thru it all, nor will I be likely to do so for a few days. Thanks GF!!

U r very welcome GF!!
We're all in this together, to help, guide one another, protect ourselves from disease and to a greater extend to try to UNDO all the bad past food choices that we've made, mostly out of ignorance

Actually, the nickel info, I found in some of my notes; however, I don't really recall where I got it from originally; BUT knowing myself , it's from a reliable source and I did some poking around afterwards and it makes sence  

Be well cara

It's amazing what a little hounding will do huh? Let us know how you begin to feel after you get them out. Dont know how immediate the effect is but maybe MoDon does. How many do you have to remove.


I'd like to thank you again Pat for your encouragement - it was vital no doubt. This week my third and last amalgam filling was removed and changed into some acrylic white material which my dentist calls 'composite'. He assured me that all other amalgams under my crowns and bridges had already been replaced by him in the past, so that nothing is left of it right now. When I first came to him to do this work, he tried to tell me that there was no danger to my health with the existing amalgams. Now I can't describe what a wonderful feeling it was to be really released from this stuff in my mouth. The funny thing, at the end of the process (3 sessions) I dared to ask the dentist if I were the only one coming to him with such request. He did admit that I wasn't. I am very very happy I did it.

Lola is reminding you that now you can start to get the loose mercury out of your sytem.  It doesn't automatically leave just because the mercury fillings are gone.

Detox, oh yes, I am well aware of it. This is the long and winding road. Maybe that's why old muscle and back pains awake these days. Time to detox then...

more adrenal info:

also wanted to mention that on Dr Lam's site, he says to be in bed by 10:00 PM, that between 10 and 1 AM is when the adrenals work the hardest to repair the body. He also mentions sleeping in a completely dark room to maximize melatonin production.

What kind of progress is everyone here making?  How long do you think it will take to get better?

My first appt. with the NP was in April, and I "passed" his adrenal fatigue test.  Most of my daytime & evening fatigue is almost gone with help of the BTD and staying low-GI plus supplements & exercise.  But I'm still sluggish in the morning.  But much worse, I now feel jittery sometimes, out-of-the-blue, and I get full-blown panic attacks.  So now I'm taking Isocort as well because the NP says that I need more Cortisol so that my body does not produce as much adrenaline.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

I now realize I've had a problem my whole adult life.  And as I'm starting to recover, I'm also starting to relive symptoms I've had 20 years ago!




My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Amazing, adrenal failure is more prevalent than I imagined.  It may be responsible for a lot of the fatigue that people suffer from.  Thanks for all the information.

Thanks for asking.  I do a 40 minute work out at the gym 2X or 3X per week.  It's about 15 minutes aerobic, usually on an elliptical trainer, and then weight training on a Nautilis circuit.  The thing is, though, I do this after supper from about 8:30pm to 10:00pm.  Sometimes I get up early to walk off the adrenaline.  Also, we try to be an active family (9yo girl and a dog), so we go on walks and swim recreationally.

Incidentally, I had been taking a statin drug for high cholestrol.  The NP suggested that I stop that drug, and I was amazed how much stronger I was at the gym, even within a week of stopping!

Does anyone have any suggestions about Adrenal fatigue?  Live Blood Analysis showed that I have this - have some homeopathic stuff to take but just wondering if there is anything else I can do.

Thanks!!

Hi Sue,
I {and many others here} have the same condition so plenty of good advise is on the way. What I do is get plenty of rest and in the AM I take 25 mg of DHEA. Cutting back on caffeine sugars and eating as may beneficial foods all have helped me to over come adrenal fatigue but for me its something I have to constantly be aware of and take care of myself. ItalyBound is my expert on this so hopefully she will drop in and give is some more help. She is all the time reminding me of things to do and mostly not to do

I treat my adrenal, hypothalamus, and other endocrine system problems with energy medicine. The cause of my problems was mercury poisoning.

I suggest you read the Can Homeopathy cure acid reflux thread.

When the adrenals are exhausted, it is important to get into bed early enough that the adrenals have time to go into their rest mode and rejuvenate themselves.  During the period between 10 pm and 1 am, we need to be asleep, if possible.  In addition to the Dr. Lam website, Dr. D's book on Fatigue, also check out a wonderful book entitled Adrenal Fatigue: A 21st Century Stress Syndrome.

Like Rodney, I take DHEA, but only 5 mg a day.  My bloodwork showed that my level was very low.

Thanks everyone,
I have already found drlam's website and have ordered the book Fatigue: a 21st century syndrome.  Tried to order Dr. D's Fatigue book today but couldn't as I am in Canada - shall give it another try.

It was quite a shock to find out about the adrenal fatigue, although I have been tired lately.   I have been following BTD since 1999 - go to bed by 9.30 everynight - do all other things possible - y'know, eat right, exercise etc., etc.  Been doing Live Blood Analysis for 3 years - have an Infrared Sauna, Ionic footbath - done all kinds of cleanses etc.  It was good to read though that adrenal stress is cumulative as I have NO sress in my life compared to years ago - so, I guess the damage was already there and it is now just showing up.  It shall be dealt with !!!!!!

I successfully got rid of Candida - Threelac is amazing - did it in 3 months!

Thanks for all the suggestions

Sue
