Title: Adrenal Fatigue or Inflammation
Post by: PeakT on May 12, 2013, 12:48:27 am
Very, very interesting video (at least to me) about adrenal fatigue is usually an inflammatory or, in some cases neurotransmitter issue:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac0npV7dA70

One very interesting example he discusses is that TNF alpha can actually bind to the adrenal where ACTH is supposed to bind thus lowering cortisol output and giving the appearance of adrenal fatigue.

His stance on adrenal fatigue?  He say that it does happen but that it is significantly more common for it to be other factors that affect the signaling to the adrenals.

fyi:  The above video is from a Maryland naturopath.

That is the first thing I've heard about adrenal fatigue that makes sense.

Ill have to check this out. Im suffering with a form of adrenal fatigue - morning cortisol on the low side. My doc wanted to rule out all inflammatory cause. For example he ordered a blood panel that tests mold/fungus and mycotoxins in your body. Also on my list are metabolic and digestive analysis from genova. Im planning to take these when have enough resources.

Anyways, It will be interesting to see if theres an inflammatory cause behind all this.

And what do you know about genova?
