Thanks for the information. That link seems to be very useful. The biggest issue I have with the Adrenal Vs. Thyroid issue is if you are adrenal fatigued, chances are your thyroid is not working properly either. My understanding is that they have a definite link to one another.
I was told my ND that adrenal fatigue IS my root cause of candida, and stress will quite literally cause a flare without ingesting more than water.
Since I have been addressing my adrenal fatigue, with the ONLY antifungals being garlic and occasional coconut oil (2 tsp a day if I choose it that day)
I am now able to eat almost anything without my throat closing up.
Prior to this, even a grape would cause throat soreness.
I have a long way to go I think (atleast 2-3 more months) but the difference in doing adrenal support has been night and day.
Dr Morse told me that I could just handle the adrenals, but that if instead I handled my endocrine system- handling adrenals,thyroid,pituitary, ect, I could get rid of my chills and depression. Both are gone. The fastest change was my mood, within DAYS of taking my herbal tinctures. The adrenals- not so much. He says that could take months to heal.
Thanks for the input! For years I have felt tired even getting 8-10 hours of sleep but never stumbled upon adrenal fatigue. Around christmas time I got sick, I had 2 very stressful weeks at work which I am sure was a factor for me getting sick. I am italian as well, so having a very high carb diet I am sure was not the least bit helpful. I would not be surpised if these factors pushed me over the edge.
As a side note, does anyone have any recommendations for herbal tea of supplements that help in this regard?
