Well, I have tried 1.5 mg and it didnt do much of anything, 3 does it just right. And from what i’ve read it takes most of us a full hour to start producing, and even a few seconds of light can disrupt the process.
In early adrenal fatigue, alot of people exercise because thats what makes them feel better. Especially right after, which will typically have a gradual diminishing effect over the next hours or few days. This is because the adrenals are being stimulated, to produce and release more hormones than they should and more than they are capable of keeping up with in their weak, tired, overworked condition. This downward spiral eventually causes a crash.
In times of infection, the adrenals get jacked around multiple ways. Normal, healthy adrenal grands in normal, happy, healthy, stress free times typically will put out around 40 mg of cortisol in a day. During times of stress and inflammation, they will produce up to around 200 mg of cortisol a day. This is the leading cause of adrenal fatigue. In todays crazy, demanding, toxic world and with what we subject our bodys to, be it working long hours, hard excercise, worry, crappy food, toxins, vaccinations, etc, this is unfortunately more common for alot of us. And yes, normal inflammatory responders can compete with our hormones for receptor sites, which in my opinion is just another one of the bodys many systems of multilayered checks of balances. However, candida mycotoxins will also do the same thing. I do not know the exact extent to which this happens, but I do feel safe in assuming it is quite profound. Something else to think about anyways. I will dig up some links in in the day or two and post them up, right now it is way past my bedtime!
I did also want to mention that the body’s methylation cycle being out of whack can have alot of the same symptoms, the same ones you mentioned, and can actually even be a cause of adrenal fatigue itself. This is far less common but something I suggest is worth glancing over due to my limited knowledge of all of your symptoms.
I’ll get back to soon. Cheers!
