I have had a NUMBER (putting it lightly) of weird symptoms for the last 15+ years. Water retention (like random 8+ lbs overnight after eating something carb heavy or consuming too much salt or simply because stars are aligned just right), low blood pressure, mild to extreme fatigue, mild to extreme brain fog, memory issues, comprehension issues, insomnia, cant wake up in the morning, struggle to energy all day, only have energy at night when the rest of the world is meeting with the sandman, stomach issues, random & sporadic weight gain, heat intolerance, cold intolerance, excessive night sweats, headaches, earaches, random nausea, hypoglycemia, passing out, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance, extreme anxiety over nothing, shaking, tremorsyou get the point. All of it is random and strikes whenever it feels like, goes away when it wants. Ive been to every specialist, had all kinds of tests, the only things ever found were anemia and consistent low potassium even on prescription potassium. The only specialist I havent been to is an endocrinologist, which is probably the ONE I NEED to see. My doctor didnt think it was necessary. Her basic blood tests apparently dont give her any reason to refer me ??. Apparently my symptoms arent reason enough. Ive tried ALL types of supplements. Ive been put on a number of prescriptions that either exasperated my symptoms, created new ones or simply didnt do anything. In October I bought Thorne adrenal cortex, Neem and Rosemary supplements to try and I started feeling better in a couple days. I did not think it was the adrenal cortex helping. I thought maybe something had been wrong with my gut and the Rosemary and Neem had helped. I could not remember ever feeling that healthy EVER. It was amazing. No swelling, no weird random symptoms with no rhyme or reason, I had plenty of energy, AND I lost 28 pounds in about 6-7 weeks. Yes, 28! TWENTY EIGHT! Ive always had a hard time losing weight. I went from a size 6 or 8 to a size 0 or 2. Hello new wardrobe! I had to buy all new undergarments, as well. My chest size went from a 36D to a 32B seemingly faster than I could say Victorias Secret. I could eat whatever I wanted without paying for it for days with swelling, boating, stomach pain. It was like I could finally digest food correctly, my electrolytes were in check and I was no longer battling dehydration. It was literally like I had been given a brand new, FUNCTIONING version of my sickly body. I stopped taking the adrenal cortex in December. Again, I thought it was the Oregano oil and Neem supplements that I bought for gut health, especially because of the weight loss. Oregano oil supposedly prevents your body from creating new fat cells. In a couple weeks of not taking the adrenal cortex, I started getting random symptoms here in there, and then on January 6th, I tested positive for COVID. Then ALL my symptoms came back. Especially the fatigue and edema. By mid February, I was still not feeling great and couldnt understand why I wasnt getting back to that super healthy feeling. I needed to order more oregano oil, so I pulled up past orders in Amazon and saw the Thorns adrenal cortex and instantly, it hit me. THAT IS WHAT MADE ME BETTER! Not the stupid gut cleaning herbs! Adrenal Cortex saved me. When my doctor has been trying to crack my case for 1.5 plus decades, one little supplement took my misery away. Im going to take a stab in the dark and guess she doesnt believe in adrenal fatigue. She sure does believe in chronic fatigue. And fibromyalgia. Thats what she diagnosed me with and basically told me I had to live with it. I had always held on to hope that one of the hundreds of vitamins and supplements Ive purchased over the years would do SOMETHING for me. If you have any suspicions about having adrenal fatigue or insufficiency, give Thorne Adrenal Cortex a try. If you have it, itll work! And dont try any other new supplements at the same time hahaha!
