A botanical product which may balance the adrenal glands. Please note, healing takes place at nature's speed. Hippocrates said we have to wait on nature. This is why you have to be patient. This is where the noun "Patient" comes from to describe someone seeing a health practioner. It may take several months on this product to help the pandemic problem of low adrenal reserve. Be patient! You will thank us later.
The suppliers of this product state that “Over the last decade or so we have seen only four people with healthy adrenals and only four people who tested negatively for Candida overgrowth (based on kiniesiology testing), and yes, they were indeed the same four people". This reminds us that the adrenals are an integral part of the immune system. Also, candida can produce adrenal insufficiency symptoms because the candida yeast can bind adrenal steroids, rendering them ineffective.”
One thing that vibrantly well people always have in common is healthy adrenal glands. Conversely, chronically unwell people always have low adrenal function regardless of whatever other issues need treating. As Dr Eldred Taylor notes “effective treatment of the adrenal glands leads to optimal functioning of the entire endocrine (hormonal) and immune system. The adrenal gland has a profound effect on sex and thyroid hormones, glucose relations and the immune system”.
The adrenal glands are chiefly responsible for regulating our bodies response to stress. They are also involved with immune response, regulation of inflammation, and carbohydrate metabolism. Suffice it to say the adrenal glands are important! They produce anti inflammatory steroids (corticosteroids) and the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline. Stress, a diet high in refined carbohydrates, excessive caffeine intake, and nutrient deficiencies conspire to ensure that hypoadrenia (depleted or exhausted adrenals) is endemic.
Apart from high stress levels and sugar / carbohydrate cravings, other signs of hypoadrenia include early-morning headache, fatigue, allergies, arthritis, low blood-pressure, thyroid deficiency, hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar), and candida.
Adrenal Function and female issues
The adrenals are responsible for producing 15% of a female's oestrogen, so in the menopausal situation it is essential to support the adrenals, particularly if the menopausal symptoms were of sudden onset and were preceded by low back pain.
Females who blossom during the latter months of pregnancy (often after first having suffered much with nausea) and then collapse with post-partum blues are almost certainly hypoadrenic and benefited temporarily from the baby's adrenal output. In such cases the baby is likely to be born with exhausted adrenals and consequently suffer with allergies etc. It is therefore important that hypoadrenia be actively sought and treated in females wishing to conceive.
The adrenal glands and thyroid deficiency
The function of the adrenal glands and the thyroid gland are intimately interlinked. If one is deficient, the other is often deficient as well. For this reason, it can be useful to take Licorice Formula and Kelp Formula at the same time.
Licorice Formula has a powerful tonic and rebuilding effect on the adrenal glands. Although it is a stand-alone treatment, it’s useful to additionally supplement with Vitamin C and Vitamin B Complex (especially B5, and B15). Hypoadrenia can also be caused by a sluggish thyroid, so it may also be necessary to take products to support the thyroid. Equally a sluggish thyroid can cause sluggish adrenals – it works in both directions, and is frequently something of a vicious circle, further aggravated where candida overgrowth is also present (which is most of the time) which stresses both organs. Like all botanical and natural remedies, it works slowly and several months are required to see a substantial result in most cases.
