Has anyone tried it. If it works, I may try it when stress times arise.

Yes, it does. I sleep better when I take it. I usually go round and round in my head when I go to bed, keeping me sleeping. I worry about everything (which I read just the other day in LR4YT is normal for an A) that may or may not happen and as such keep myself awake.

With cortiguard I take one in the morning and one in the evening and I feel much better because of it and most importantly sleep better. They're finished now, so I can't wait until my order gets here.

When I feel stressed I feel it in my entire upper body along with chest pain. I just feel so unwell. I do have that problem too of the mind racing. I have not mentioned other stresses with other family members just the immediate ones that are really bothering me. I have no trouble to sleep. I am trying not to worry about them, they are adults and can get help just as easily as I did. They have to want it. But some things I cant control stressing about. I can get rid of it tempoarily with exercise but I cant exercise 24 7. I am hoping the cortiquard will help to prevent me from feeling so rotten.

I'd like to add my "assent" for cortiguard.  As an A also I have the same issue of thoughts going round in my head "like a whirling dervish".

I haven't taken cortiguard in awhile but this is a reminder that I would like to order it again to have on hand.

I'm also reading books like "The Miracle of Mindfulness" by Thich Nhat Hanh.  As soon as we have emotional attachment to the future or go over an emotional issue in the past we are literally "out of our minds".  Now I know this is not a new concept and many books say the same thing only in different words.  It is also not always easy to do.  So what do we do.  I know I want to get rid of these thoughts because they're disturbing.  It seems if we acknowledge the feelings they evoke that is enough.  

Again, for me it's a reminder.

I take Cortiguard and I definitely feel that it helps my stress levels...not that I really have that much stress, everything seems to be going along nicely...

I've never tried it, but I'm sure it's good. The problem we have is that there are far more neurons in the center of our brains, in the "old part" of the brain, that radiate outwards, sending us signals. This is the part that is designed to keep us alive in times of great physical peril, telling us to run fast even before we can see the tiger in the bush. This part of the brain will "jump" at just about anything. The more reasonable part of our brains doesn't have a way to tell that old brain to calm down! It's OK! So I'm guessing cortiguard helps with that.

This made me laugh because last year when I went to visit my sister so I could visit my brother in the hospital, I was warned about bears in the neighborhood. I had to walk a ways to see him. On my way back one day, I heard sudden noises in the woods. My brain said run without thought of consequence. I was lucky not to have been hit by a car. I ran into traffic. When I reached the other side of the road, I looked back and it was only bush workers. lol Was not funny at the time though. Guess I will give the product a try. Thanks a bunch everyone.

Use it twice a day morning and evening. Tranquility is great too.

A's have  an excess of cortisol we need all the help we can get, if you are not doing some form of yoga/taichi/ Qigong I would encourage you to try it and see how different you feel.

Yoga helps the body excrete cortisol.

I've been dealing with a lot of anxiety ever since my sister had brain surgery in January..

I started taking Cortiguard about 3 1/2 weeks ago...

I have tried Tranquility Base but it was sedating me and not changing my thoughts.  I could
still get myself into panic while taking Tranquility Base....so depending on the specifics, I think
it's best to try both supplements to see which one suits you best.

What was happening to me was panic attacks almost as soon as I woke up and turned on my
"worry switch"....thinking about my sister.

I stopped the Tranquility Base after about 3 months and started Cortiguard.  Wasn't sure how
to take it but I knew I needed it first thing in the morning, even though I was sleeping really
well.

I put a glass of water on my nightstand and one Cortiguard pill next to it.....so as soon as I turned over in bed in the morning and noticed the time (usually 6 am), I'd take one pill.  By the time I got out of bed (around 7:30 am), I was getting up calmer.  Another pill right before dinner and now, after almost 4 weeks, here's my results:

I stopped obsessing over thoughts that would make me feel upset.  I can now acknowledge these issues but they don't act as triggers that cause me to start hyperventilating...  I find I'm breathing slower.....It seemed to have changed the way I'm perceiving frightening or terrifying thoughts. I'm not saying the thoughts are gone....I'm just not freaking out.  And I've tried to make my fears go into a deeper place but it's just not happening.

I have been using magnesium oil for a long while...but it wasn't calming.  Cortiguard is very
calming to my nervous system.  I can feel it all over my body.   Less muscular tension....less
stressful feelings.  Overall, it's worked really really well!

Yes, I agree, yoga and qigong are very calming exercises for me.

So what do you take from NAP if you don't have adequate cortisol?  Mine is low because of adrenal fatigue.

Adrenal Fatigue is related to your liver function. I see you are an Explorer, makes sense.

Have you done the gentle detox recommended in your SWAMI or the book?

Look at hepatiguard from DPN need to be consistent about taking it, it is not something that works overnight.. slowly gently.

Love, love and love Cortiguard!
I have taken it for almost 2 years. (One a day)
It works better away from food, just like Quercetin.
I am such a typical A with the "jumpiness", worry, mind and thoughts working overtime, irritated at loud (TV) and sudden noises.
Cortiguard is like taking my vitamins, minerals and polyflora....daily!

With backup from  other A bloodtypes who are expounding on the benefits of Cortiguard how could I not order it today.  Which I did.  

It's been almost a year since I ordered it and I feel it will fit in nicely with my other supplements.

Sending you peaceful, positive vibes, PassionPrincess!
Please make time for YOURSELF! And take cortiguard!

Living with my 2 sons and husband...hunters and explorers....life as an A is often challenging. They just think " Its Mom...she's a girl.. all emotional..etc."
I have had to stand up for myself and lay down my law in more ways than one!

The teen years are a roller coaster ride and I used to long for their young years when they adored me and were so much fun to play with! But the trials and tribulations of those hectic teens bonded us in ways I now realize as they are in their mid twenties.
My sons are awesome young men and we laugh now over some of the crazy past.

I want to say that I noticed immediate benefits but I really think it took about a week or two
before I could honestly say that Cortiguard altered my perspective and calmed my body and
mind.

Trying to figure out when to take each pill...for the first week, I was taking one the minute
I woke up....another one right before dinner....but last night, I was relatively calm before dinner
so I thought I'd see how long I could go before I felt any anxiety.  Thinking I might not feel
the need for a second pill.... I was trying to see if just one pill per day might be enough.  But no, by 7:30 pm, while calmly sitting in front of the TV, I started feeling a bit "off"......my mind was wandering back to having a lot of fearful thoughts and my breathing became shallow..
I realized I needed that second pill so I took it...  Within an hour, I felt better...slept wonderfully well.  I can't wait for everyone to report their benefits with Cortiguard.  This formula has my
name written all over it!

But to be realistic.....from a point of view of situational stress....having something go wrong......getting caught up in the throes of conflict or true anxiety provoking situations, I
can still make myself feel very upset....It's just that it's not going to send me into a permanent
tailspin....I can find my way back to equilibrium.

PassionPrincess...I'm really hoping Cortiguard works as well for you as it did for me.

I take one capsule first thing in the morning. Perhaps I should take one capsule before bed, too, as I did not sleep well last night. Not worried, necessarily, just have a lot to think about.

I never thought of myself as someone who had obsessive compulsive thoughts but not being able to fall asleep for me is usually because I can't turn my mind off.  

My chinese acupuncturist/doctor told me to stop "thinking" so much...  Not as easy as it sounds...

How does one just automatically stop thinking......but since I'm taking Cortiguard, I feel I'm
living more in the moment....When it's time to go to sleep....that's exactly what I do....5 minutes
with my head on the pillow, and I'm fast asleep.

That's how I usually am, too. I fall asleep within minutes of lying down. But not last night! Part of the problem is that it's been so hot, even at night. As I mentioned, Rescue Sleep and White Chestnut have usually helped me fall back to sleep when I wake in the night, and I haven't needed even that for months.

That being said, I'm really liking how I feel taking even just the one Cortiguard in the am. When I start to feel "antsy" in the evening, I usually take that as a sign that it's time to go to sleep.

Excessive heat makes me feel horribly stressed out.  I have a type A friend who feels the same
way.  Cortiguard instructions on the bottle say 1- 3 pills per day....so perhaps on really hot days,
a pill before bed might help you sleep very calmly.

Is it necessary to take it on a daily basis for it to work. I mostly have a hard time and have less patience when I am hormonal. It seems that my son is tuned into when that time is.
