Anyone 100% back to normal after healing of adrenal fatigue?

We all know the symptoms: fatigue, mood problems, fogginess, negativity, no energy in morning and throughout day then wide awake at night. Has anyone recieved full recovery? I'm finding that no-caffeine at all has been the best way to fight this and I feel like I'm healing.

There is some research that shows PS supplementation reduces cortisol levels after exercise. Jack Kruse mentions the supplement here: http://jackkruse.com/what-might-casey-anthony-and-oj-have-in-common/ It is also briefly mentioned in the book "The Cortisol Connection" on page 202-3. I take 200 mg/day. It is pricey.

I'm not so worried about withdrawal these days because salted bone broth seems to get me off of it in a day or two without any symptoms except a slight headache. Morning sickness did a good job of getting me off of caffeine before, and I felt so crappy I didn't even notice the withdrawal. I did go cold turkey once and it took a full 6 weeks before I could make it through my work day without a nap, but then again I had undiagnosed hypothyroidism at the time. I'm working my way back down to nada, the cup of 1/2 caff. is much less than the 8 shots I used to have most days.

If you find that you need it to function, you are going to be unfunctional for probably a few days, then just probably tired a lot for a month. But this all depends.

how long do you think finding it "extremely difficult to function" without coffee would last? My guess would be probably a few days and certainly no more than a week. Worth a try.

very interesting...I used to find it impossible as well to function without coffee, I'm glad I'm off it though, cause now I can function better without it.

The Loon, I'm asking people on PH what their experiences are with a long term no-caffine diet. It's usually been pretty dramatic differences. You should try it and write back.

I do. If I get enough salt I can't drink it because I get insta-jitters, but if I don't keep the salt dialed in, I find it extremely difficult to function without a cup or two of 1/2 caff.

....yeah because the average person here knows what phosphatidyl serine is. Can you explain?

How can you rely on scientific studies to determine your health? I go off of what feels right.

converting protein to glucose is a burden on a body, no?

Point....you can treat adrenal issues without carbs if these things are done first. Ketogenic paleo protocol. LS at liver level You are not a hypomethylator and you are fat adapted Your adrenal is rock solid with supplemental b vitams, vitamin c, mg and se levels and optimal zn. There is not one waybto treat adremals. There are multiple ways. I live this way and when you do your liver makes glucose out of protein better than it will process dietary carbohydrate. This is the basis of ifing optimal on fasted plans. It increases ampk pathway like a mother for you to gain muscle and shred

If I get enough salt and water I feel like I'm healed for the day, but a day or two without remembering to add enough of either, and I'm back to square one. I hope there are folks who have figured this out long term.

I've only been doing it for a few weeks, but I think taking phosphatidyl serine in the morning helps.

If I keep all stresses low, get adequate sleep and stay in a routine I am fine. I still drink a bit of morning coffee. Carbs also make it better, but also make me fat, so it is really a balancing act. So, I'd call it managed, not fixed.

I have found that getting 7.5 or more hours of sleep a night has helped a lot.
