Lola, agreed.  It is kind of weird when we live in a world where mainstream medicine "specialists" become so specialized that they do not treat the whole person, as has been my experience.

Patty, thanks. I will research and then discuss these with my doctor.

One of the things I try to do with my PCP and cardiologist is to educate them on my way of life regarding health and wellness.  My PCP told me that she always learns something when I come in for an appointment.  Both of these women keep an open mind as they seem to understand that when one is personally vested in one's health, good health and wellness is possible!

A few days ago I was reading about how cortisol is on a 24 hour cycle, controlled by the circadian rhythm.  I knew my sleeping schedule was all over the place, and that I've felt better in the past by getting up earlier.  So the last few days I've been rising at the time cortisol is supposed to be highest (6-8am... something VERY new to me lol), and getting to sleep by 10 or 11.

I have to say, I've been feeling significantly better, and much more motivated/energized during the day.  Less adrenaline, and more "normal".  I think this may have been the problem all along... crossing my fingers.

Eric !!!!!

From what I have researched, both low and high cortisol can = low DHEA

Also smoking can also cause low DHEA, but i'm not sure if they are specifically referring to cigarettes or the other type of smoking...



Maybe you need to eat more chocolate. IDK. Just putting it out there .....

Eric, that is good news, and good info on the Circadian rhythm sleep/wake times.  That seems a good approach for a lot of us to practice!  Hoping always for your well-being and happiness!

I had an endocrinologist tell me to take small doses of DHEA when I complained of dry eyes and it seemed to help.  When I looked at the chart for Cushing's/Addison's the only thing that really struck a chord with me was never feeling rested from sleep but I think that's cause by my thyroid issues (I had my thyroid removed and I'm on a suppressive dose due to thryoid cancer).

earthing can reset your circadian's. they talk about it in a book of the same title as preventing jet lag. i haven't tried it yet on a time zone shift. lots of electrical/wifi/etc. signals in the city. even riding the subway could be having an effect. grounding is fantastic. http://www.amazon.com/Earthing.....mp;keywords=earthing
