Adrenal Assit/Support, working?, are we designed to digest supplements?

I've been on adrenal assit and support (two seperate supplements) that are supposed to make me feel better. I have adrenal disfunction (according to the Dr.'s tests). It's been a week now and I feel a little calmer and stabalized (my symptoms are mood problems). However, I'm under the impression that I actually even felt better before at a time when I was on no supplements, and was eating nearly perfect Paleo. Anybody else out there try adrenal supplements?

Will report after Doc appt. Planning on starting licorice and doing other paleo adrenal health supports like good sleep/less stimulants/high nutrition/stress reduction/easier workouts, before bringing out the big guns-glandulars and hydrocortisone.

I agree. Okay....back when I went "gluten-free" it took three days to feel an enormous difference in health. It's been almost a week on adrenal supplements, and maybe, I feel a little better, but also feel a little worse at the same time. My perspective on what's good for you is really more "what's bad for you!" I suffer with energy and fatigue problems to a point where I can't really do much. It's a serious condition, which deserves serious treatment, but really the serious treatment is to take nothing, and do nothing, and let my body heal, I'm tired of incorrect doctors

...I disagree. There's too much evidence for strict Paleo being the optimal. I'm going to continue with adrenal support, but then switch back to strict Paleo, and I will be honest about my results when reporting back

Speaking while saying nothing. What does back to baseline even mean?

No, haven't tried yet but am going to Dr next week to discuss new protocol for my low cortisol. Please keep posting your results. It seems like adrenal fatigue and low cortisol are not as well documented here. Also please check the sentence starting at However...perfect Paleo. I can't figure out what you are saying. Sorry:)

My concern is that the supplements aren't entirely gluten free. I sent one off to be tested once and it had a low level of gluten in it, although it was labeled as free from all allergens. If you are taking a lot of supplements, or are very sensitive, that could all add up.

I've read that it can be a good thing to periodically stop all supplements and then add then back in, one at a time, every 4 days or so, to be sure they agree with you.

If your cellular terroir is mismatched to your current habits or environment clearly a return to balance is indicated. The key is diagnosing that mismatch. Not everyone is adapted best to paleo. The reason largely is what occurs at your mitochondria and the cellular processes that drive it in you individual cellular terroir. When you get back to baseline then I think paleo is the best platform to run on longterm. Getting back to ground zero is the holy grail of the quilt.
