Chris, question regarding Pregnenolone

I read your recent article posted, after correcting me on another board. I have a question regarding Pregnenolone. I read up on it. Now with PTSD, you go through this physical and mental hyperviligance. Obviously, your adrenaline glands are producing a large amount of cortisol then to make you feel this way. So what would happen by taking this Pregnenolone and the high cortisol you may already have in your body? Ihave not tested my cortisol or adrenaline hormone output, I ask the doctors and they think I'm crazy. I am in therapy and have a Psych, but I do not take much meds cause I want to go through this the hard way, so I'm aware of all to heal. Can you give me so more info on this herb before I take it? Do you suggest a urine adrenaline test first or saliva?

Thanks

Andrea

Re: Chris, question regarding Pregnenolone

Chris. There are no osteopaths under my insurance. I can't afford to pay cash. But there are Chiropracters and some have D.O. after their names, would this be sufficient?

Let me know please.
