It happens, but the main cause of hypo-adrenal status is prolonged elevated glucocorticoid production due to chronic inflammation and stress. In that case, the best thing to do would be to treat for the infection, boost Th1 immunity and reduce inflammation and stress in a healthy way. Ive heard Dr. Ingram talk about tb at a seminar as though it could be a low level smoldering type infection that could infect the adrenals, but also mentioned constant pain in kidney region accompanying it.
Ive heard whitakers mentioned once and it pretty much seemed like it was a cluster of odd symptoms and expressions, probably the ones the wiki article mentions, I would think it would be easily identifiable if you had it.
It’s so difficult to write back in English, I’m dyslexic, so bear with me with the long response period. occasional AF does a lot too.
Yes, I’d guess that they are talking about actual destruction/prevention of the adrenal cortex by fungi, and that my (our) AF mostly is caused by stress from different factors that you’ve mentioned. Problem is always that I don’t believe most of the alternative medicine claims, so I tend to dig around on pub.med and talking with me MD friends about it.
It’s just odd that everybody with CRC tends to have AF. And that my findings make a link between mild immune def. and yeast problems. Just trying to find the root cause. A lot of CRC sufferers had a row of stressful events happening, or a stressful childhood, so I thought that there might be a link between getting CRC and having AF problems.
Never the less, I am getting more bloodwork done beginning this month, due to low blood sugar measurements (2,8 mmol/ml) at 13:00 (midday). Hopefully I can get them to do more tests regarding cortisol, but doubt it. They think I have hyperinsulinemia.. But they are just guessing atm.
Right now, I’m trying to figure out how to keep AF at bay and handle chelation with aluminosilicate minerals (zeolites) And keep candida under control.
