Adrenal fatigue and rebuilding a thyroid.
Hi folks, new here and trying to figure out my body. Something's gone wrong with the overall chemistry, and I can't get it back right again. Tired, depressed, stress, worn out, chronic pain, poor healing after an injury, mild ED. Years of AAA stress, plus depression and anxiety meds to try and cope.
My labs before starting were reasonably normal, except for the cortisol. Salivary cortisol low at all four points, only even crossed into low-normal once. Makes me wonder if my adrenals are toasted.
I've been running a two-prong attack:
1. Replenish the thyroid- Iodine, methylated B complex (B2/3/6/9/12), C, D3, Mag, Zinc (basically a halide detox)
2. Rebuild the adrenals- same of the above helps, along with exercise, adrenal cortex supplementation, caffeine detox.
Any ideas if I'm on the right track?
