Quoted from italybound
"It is important to go to sleep by 10 p.m. every night because our adrenal glands kick in for a "second wind" to keep us going from 11 pm to 1 am. This puts tremendous stress on the adrenals. When we rest early, our adrenals are fully rested and the high gear is avoided. Between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m., our adrenals work the hardest to repair the body. We should also try to sleep in until 8:30 a.m. or 9: 00 a.m. if possible. This is because our cortisol level rises to its peak from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. in order to wake us up and get us going for the day. "
Quoted from Dr Lam............. Bear in mind this is for someone who usually rises by 6 AM I think, because FWIU, our cortisol is at it's morning highest 2 hours after we arise.
It might be in the A/F book, it mentions that between 7 and 9 AM is THE best time for healing of the adrenals. Even if we get up and go back to bed (which I personally wouldnt recommend and I dont think he is either really), there is something 'magical', I believe he called it, about the time of morning for adrenal healing.
If we get up too soon, as in before our adrenals are really kickin in, they have to work extra hard to get us up to the level we should be, putting further stress on them.
LF, have you checked out the other Adrenal Threads?

Dawn, the article on Dr Lam's site is really really good. I have recommended that over and over again............I highly recommend printing it out in color and finding a quiet place to read. Note there are parts in red and blue and each means something different. It helps to note that when reading. The more you learn about your body and nutrition, the more sense the article makes.   I have read it 2 or 3 times and each time, I understand something better. Very satisfying indeed.
Also, the book Lights Out: Sleep, Sugar, and Survival is a good book to read (or has that already been posted)? This is an old thread and I didn't reread it all..........sorry if it has been posted previously.
http://www.amazon.com/Lights-Out-Sleep-Sugar-Survival/dp/0671038680

sleep until 8AM if possible......that is when your cortisol/DHEA are at their highest points of the day. If you get up before then, your body has to produce extra to get us going.........not good, but most of us don't have the luxury to sleep in until 8, so we have to do the best we can.

I found this very interesting, I mention before my husband has a new low stress job, which I think is very good for him. After looking at the circadian cycle I am hoping he will get some relief in his adrenals. His former job was high stress, when he was home his schedule was up at 3am and home about 5pm, he would go to sleep about 10 pm. Now he gets up around 10am, goes to work at 3pm, bed at 12-1am depending on when he gets home from work, and sleeps until 10-11am.

Also what I thought was interesting is my mother will get up early in the morning ( she is in her 60's) but then goes back to sleep. When I get up between 8-10. I am up for the day. I am just trying to grasp this concept. I do believe my husband due to his weight, 20 yrs in a high stress job, where he carries his weight ( all in the stomach area) and his constantly being tired, even after 10 hours of sleep, has very high cortisol levels, is insulin resistance, and has adrenal fatigue. This is all new so I am trying to figure out if his swing shift he works 4-12am is better for him or worse.

Also after reading more isn't this tryptophan what is found in turkey, the element that makes you sleepy after eating it? This might explain why turkey is really his favorite meat his body craves it?

Dawn

Adding as I read more on adrenals

Increase symptoms of PMS for women; period are heavy and then stop, or almost stopped on the 4th day, only to start flow again on the 5th or 6th day.

This is so me!! This started in my 30's! I am floored.

My iridologist, Dr. Gary told me to take Adrenal 80 from nutri-pak. As I usually do I took it for a while but will start up again. It is 80 mg adrenal concentrate 80mgs. He tells me I'm very emotional( which I am ). Throughout my 36 years of working anywhere between 12-12 am/pm maybe that's why my adrenals are shot. He also told my husband he was born with only one. All that by looking in your eye...Aani

Is Adrenal 80 made from animal glands?  Do you as an A hesitate to take it?

It's really good to get to a NP or a good Natural-Oriented Physician who will do some testing adrenal and hormone wise to see where you are sitting as both of those areas could be out of whack.   Mine were and my NP was able to prescribe correctly the supp's that helped me tremendously.  Before I went to her I was taking a bunch of things that weren't really doing it and actually causing my body more upset.

I completely agree. Find someone who knows what supplements to give you and when. Taking too much at once can backfire on ya. (I had an NP wind up doing this w/ me.......I was on so much stuff and not making any headway) Some people are successful doing it themselves, but I'd suspect that involves alot of hit and miss and can eventually add up to lots of money, time and health lost.

I assume the Adrenal 80 isn't veggie because it doesn't state. I'm not too hard line on BTD or GTD as you can tell. It has been a challenge for me. If Dr. Gary says I need it, I probably do. He passes the BTD/GTD to his patients. He is familiar with Dr.D's work...Aani

Shamrockgreen7, Rachel and purlgirl, if you would like Dr D'Adamo to write a book specifically for adrenal fatigue (different from normal fatigue one might experience), you can hop on over to this thread below and let him know you'd love to have one too.

Yes, it's a good book!! If you do a search on this site, you'll get some more hits on adrenals (hopefully...........I don't have much luck w/ searching for some reason).  Until our good Dr. gives us an Adrenal Fatigue book  , we'll have to get our info from other sources.   There are lots of them around. Several in this thread and also on a few others.

Found these for ya by searching the word "adrenal". Hope it helps.

I wasn't referring to her absence on the boards as much as I was referring to how her name is no longer linked, as if her account has been deactivated.
