Thought I had replied to this already.
Thanks for the advice :)
I'm planning to start vitamin C at around 500mg working up in 500mg increments until I notice diarrhea and then cut back by 500 mg and maintain that dose.
I currently take a b vitamin complex with pantothenic acid at 100mg but as you are suggesting much higher doses of the form I'm presuming it converts into then I will look into that, thanks.
Magnesium seems to help me relax in the evenings but I'll be careful not to overdo it.
The Kalish method - on the dr mecola website reccomends low doses of pregnenolone and dhea everyday - which they believe will give your adrenals a rest and also provide hormones that you desperately need.
I've heard that DHEA is antagonistic to cortisol so if your body is struggling so much that it is failing to produce much cortisol it is likely that any conversions will go to the cortisol pathway making DHEA almost non-exsistent.
My concern however is that taking DHEA from an external source will shut down cortisol even more.
But my idea is to take around a 20 mg dose of prenenolone and a 10 mg does of DHEA.
Most of the pregnenolone I believe would convert to cortisol as your body needs it the most and then the dhea supplement would provide DHEA and there would be more of a balance between the two.
The glandulars I am still unsure about as bovine sources could possibly be contaminated with mad cow disease.
Also I'm not entirely sure what a glandular actually does?
Whether it stimulates the adrenals and makes them work harder or whether it supports them.
