Thursday, May 05, 2011 by: Jonathan Landsman

(NaturalNews) Do you know someone that suffers from chronic fatigue or weight issues? The NaturalNews Talk Hour presents Adrenal Fatigue – How to Eliminate Stress and Weight Issues with our special guest Dr. Garry D’Brant. This program will teach you how to add years to your life and life to your years.

“Thanks for the great show, Jonathan! You are the best!” – Dr. David Klein

The Dangers of Stress

According to Dr. D’Brant, “Up until twenty years ago, scientists would acknowledge that physical stress could be harmful to the body. However, it is only within the last ten to fifteen years that scientists have begun to recognize and study the profound effects of psychological stress on health.”

In fact, research in the past fifteen years suggests that 43% of all adults suffer significant adverse effects from stress exposure and 75% to 90% of all visits to primary care physicians are related in some way to the negative effects due to stress. It is estimated that on an average workday, approximately one million workers are absent from their jobs due to stress-related complaints. Fortunately, there are natural solutions.

Eighteen Overlooked Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

26 06 2012

This is another good article I came across. Below is a snippet. Please click on the link at the bottom to be taken to the full article. Thanks!

 

(NaturalNews) More and more alternative health practitioners are beginning to recognize how widespread adrenal fatigue (hypoadrenia) is in the general population. In mainstream medicine, doctors refuse to recognize there is a problem with the adrenal glands unless you meet the diagnostic criteria for Addison’s disease (extremely little adrenal function) or Cushing’s disease (hyper adrenal). These diseases together affect less than 2% of the population, but some experts believe that upwards of 80% of the population suffers from some level of adrenal insufficiency. Besides the usual symptoms of overwhelming fatigue and inability to handle stress, the symptoms listed below provide a more complete picture of adrenal fatigue and are often overlooked even by alternative practitioners.

Personal Update

15 04 2012

Recently, since I have moved from Vermont to Maine, we have discovered that I DO NOT have chronic fatigue syndrome like one doctor suggested in Vermont. However, I am an HSP, or highly sensitive person, which basically means I have very sensitive to sensory objects such as lights, sounds, smells, tastes, touch. My nervous system picks up more subtleties than “normal” human’s. This is an inherited trait and causes fatigue when I become overstimulated or over-aroused. If I don’t take breaks in a dark, quiet room to “reset”, I have an extremely hard time getting through the day and cannot handle much of anything and I feel an intense amount of stress in my body. I will get headaches, muscle tensions and aches, racing heart, feelings of panic, like I”m going to faint and I get to a point, I just can’t take even general conversation with anyone. My brain is done and my body shuts down by falling asleep. I basically have trouble blocking things out and I get EVERYTHING coming in.

In church, I hear the pastor talking, people coughing or shuffling in their seats, or getting up to use the restroom, pages turning in the Bible. All normal stuff, but it is all loud and gets jumbled to where I lose concentration on what the pastor is saying. Couple this with the lighting and there have been times I’ve fallen asleep in church, because my brain just says, “oh, your done. Can’t take anymore.”

Just something else I have added to my plate. I am still taking supplements and on I found to work really well is 7 Keto. It is the precursor to DHEA which the adrenal glands make. It is said to help your adrenals, may improve sexual function, help you loose weight, and improve mood. It took a couple of weeks for me to notice anything but a few days ago I started feeling calmer, things rolled off me more, I could think better, sleep better, wasn’t as moody, and found I could relax easier and enjoy life much more. Now, this is how it has affected me. My mother in law has just started taking it so I’m waiting to see how it affects her. It’s supposed to be really helpful for women in menopausal ages, but since it’s  a precursor to DHEA produced by the adrenal glands, I thought it would be good to mention it in this blog. Other supplements I take are:

Salmon oil 2200mg – good for heart, eyes, mood, hair and skin

Milk thistle 300mg – cleans your body out of toxins especially your liver

Alpha lipoic acid 300mg – antioxidant and helps your cells with using energy

Rainbow Light Food Based multivitamin for women

Vitamind D3 5000 IUs

PB8 – probiotics

7 keto 200 mg

raspberry ketones – 200mg – aids in fat burning and weight loss, ups metabolism

calcium and magnesium

I’m not sure how many of these will help with adrenal issues but many of what I have mentioned have various health benefits regardless if you are taking them for adrenal issues or not.

 

So that is my update for now. Must get to bed. Tis very late. Will probably make more posts tomorrow. Night all.





Personal Update On My Health

27 12 2010

I have not written a personal update on how I’ve been doing in quite some time.  To start off, I was told I had adrenal fatigue by a nutritionist who insisted I take a salivary test to determine my cortisol levels. The test revealed that I had adrenal fatigue. Yet, in 2009, I visited an endocrinologist and told him this and he said the salivary tests are unreliable. He ran a more effective blood test to check for cortisol levels and he said I did not have adrenal fatigue.

Okay. So I don’t have to worry about adrenal fatigue, but why am I still exhuasted all of the time and have headaches and bodyaches and feel worse after exertion. Recently we discovered that I have chronic fatigue syndrome. To help me with energy I take 12 grams of d ribose a day, along with 1 tablespoon liquid L Carnitine (an amino acid), and the Fatigue to Fantastic vitamin shake mix. I get all of my supplements at www.vitacost.com. The mixture of these supplements is helping me get back on my feet. Since there is no cure for CFS, I know it will take time  for my body to heal and that I will need to pay attention to my fatigue levels throughout the day and not overdo it. So that is the most recent update. I’ll check back later if I have anything new to post.
