Hello Garwin, I read your message and found it quite interesting. Are you saying that you don't take hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone and simply take the things you mentioned and that it controls the Addison's? If you had the time I would really appreciate a reply on this one. I've understood from my docs that I simply have to take my meds to keep alive.
: Having had this condition sice I was 16 years of age and being 48 may 20 of 00, I have learned a few things with the study of Orthomolecular Medicine.
: I use Soy Protein in the morning with Ionic Minerals. I take St. John's Wort, Gingko along with a complete Salvo of Amino Acids. I add to this Cat's Claw, via Uno de Gato, since it is an anti virus, anti-parasite herb.....
: If I use salt it has to be Sea Salt, which is rich with buffers. I use 1 mg. for every pound of body weight of Grape Seed Extract. Throughout the day I eat or drink Super Green Foods, to detox by and for the energy it gives.
: In the evening I take Whey Protein, Essential Fatty Acids, Ester-C, and more Ionic Minerals. This along with being a body-builder all through my Addison's experience has kept me Optimal.
: Sweating is still the best detox on the planet for me, and it keeps the limph system clean.
: Warm Regards,
