If you want to get a better idea of where your adrenals/thyroid are at you might want to try tracking your daily temperature. Here’s some information on that: http://www.drrind.com/therapies/metabolic-temperature-graph
Adaptogenic herbs like Ashwagandha and Rhodiola are typically not enough to best support the adrenals. Adrenal Cortex Extract, on the other hand, can help a lot with adrenal fatigue and I highly recommend you check it out. It’s by far the most important supplement I take. I also wouldn’t assume that your adrenals are fine based on your cortisol test results. When I did the cortisol spit test a while back my results were slightly low, but still in the “normal” range and I benefit greatly from taking ACE.
Thank you. The only problem with the thyroid support is that I really can’t abandon it because I don’t have a thyroid anymore. I don’t know if there is an okay way to treat that while simultaneously healing the adrenals. If you have any ideas, though, I would be open to them for sure!
