No Unicorns: What is the mechanism that causes an adrenal fatigue sufferer's liver to become congested?
Seattle Tom: Hi - When the adrenals are working hard, the digestive system (including the liver) slows down, and doesn't detoxify as well. When this happens, toxins build up in the liver, then in other organs and tissues. When the adrenals start functioning normally again, the liver can start detoxing normally again.
No Unicorns: "When the adrenals start functioning normally again, the liver can start detoxing normally again." This happens as the adrenals normalize, or must the liver be cleaned manually, i.e. bitters and flushing?
Seattle Tom: In my case, I had to take milk thistle and dandelion for many years to help my liver process and eliminate all the old toxins my body had stored. I've done one liver flush, and will probably need to do several more.
No Unicorns: So you had a narcotics-induced AF from liver congestion? Isn't adrenal fatigue the absolute worst? It's like a never-ending panic attack.
Seattle Tom: No, I didn't have a narcotics-induced liver congestion from AF. My birth was traumatic, and my mother was experiencing AF during the final stages of her pregnancy with me, while she was giving birth, and during the first few months of my life. Because of this, I was predisposed to become an adrenaline junkie, which started when I was 14. I became bipolar because being hypomanic caused an adrenaline rush, which occurred for me like a familiar, pleasant experience.
Yes, AF sucks for exactly the reason you stated. When mine was severe, I always envied people who led unhealthy lifestyles and could handle stress much better than I could.
