Have you looked into insulin sensitivity and related issues? ALA lowers blood sugar. Adrenal exhaustion will be exacerbated by fluctuations in blood Sugar levels (restoring it requires the release of cortisol, something that is not functioning well in heavy metal toxic people). Adrenal exhaustion could make your life miserable in the afternoon.
IF blood sugar/insulin resistance is involved, there is an easy answer to that: the longevity diet by Dr. Ron Rosedale. (It is highly controversial only because people are brain-washed by the media). By excluding all foods that cause spikes in blood Sugar and the release of insulin followed by cortisol (and for lack of cortisol, extreme fatigue, and adrenaline under pressure to replace cortisol), you are able to function a lot better. With the Rosedale system, calories are irrelevant SO LONG AS you do not eat anything that would cause a spike in blood sugar. You can eat unlimited healthy fats, some protein, unlimited fiber. You cannot eat sugars in any form nor carbos in any form (there is NO physiological need for glucose from the diet, and all carbohydrates convert to glucose. In fact, our bodies can make glucose out of any macronutrient, including carbos, sugars, fats and protein). The Rosedale diet is worth looking into. It made chelation a lot more bearable for me, and also allowed me to lose weight and never go hungry. You can google for "Insulin and its metabolic effects", a video of a speech Doctor Rosedale gave on the effects of Sugar and insulin.
