I too have been suffering from adrenal problems that are convinced are the root of my candida problems. If I am under any kind of stress whether negative or positive my cortisol levels skyrocket. I had some adrenal tests done and my cortisol levels were extremely high even when I was sleeping. Ususally after a few days or weeks I completely crash and get extremely depressed and barely able to function.
My doctors have me on a substance called HPA Calm that contains Phosphatidyl Serine which is suppose to reduce the release of cortisol. Im also taking Ashwagandha and 5-htp since my serotonin levels were low along with the anti-fungals and probiotics.
In my experience there is a strong correlation between adrenal funciton and candida. Whenever I have an adrenal crash the candida comes back alot worse. I think one of the keys to beating this thing is reducing your stress load as much as possible so your adrenals can heal and the ant-fungals and probiotics can do their job.
So what would you recommend for someone just starting out trying to get their stress levels down, as far as supplements? Is there just one I could take that would support my adrenals enough?
