The majority of patients seen for chronic illnesses, including FMS and CFS, are suffering from adrenal exhaustion. They have literally burned their stress-monitoring organ out. Between years of poor sleep, unrelenting fatigue, chronic pain, excessive stimulants, poor diet, and relying on a plethora of prescription medications, the adrenal glands, and the hormones they release, have been used up. Once adrenal exhaustion sets in, it’s not long before the body begins to breakdown. Getting “stressed out” and staying “stressed out” is the beginning of chronic illness for most, if not all of, the FMS and CFS patients. Adrenal cortical extracts help repair and restore normal adrenal function. “Adrenal extracts have been recommended and successfully used for a variety of conditions that involve low adrenal function, including asthenia, asthma, colds, burns, depletion from infectious diseases, from colds, coughs, dyspepsia (poor digestion) early Addison’s disease, hypotension (low blood pressure), infections, infectious diseases, neurasthenia (low energy/weakness), tuberculosis, light-headedness and dizziness, and vomiting during pregnancy” From “Practical Organotherapy,” H.R. Harrower as quoted in “Adrenal Fatigue The 21st Century Stress Syndrome,” by James L. Wilson, N.D.,D.C, Ph.D. These extracts are used to replenish and eventually normalize adrenal function. An advantage over cortisol hormone replacement is adrenal cortical extracts can be discontinued once they have done their job of repairing adrenal function.
