Yes that is my theory. The adrenals will never recover unless you get your internal stressor figured out...whatever it may be. My main internal stressor was also parasites...along with candida and some serious gut inflammation. And I have 99% gotten rid of that. That is why I believe that now my adrenals can rest and recover but I just don't wanna make them worse you know. I want something gentle to support them during recovery. I guess I am soo stupid to have done all of that chelating and candida/ parasite cleansing when my adrenals were already in such a weak state. And I wasn't getting a good night sleep ever...so didn't let them recover :/
May I ask what doses you were taking of those supplements? What did you start off on and how long did it take you to get to the max dose?
How far into the program did you start to feel improvement in energy?
