Re: addison's/adrenal

Hmm when you say bad digestion do you mean indigestion or do you mean like your body is so screwed up you develop food allergies? Dr. Wilson the author of "Adrenal Fatigue" beleives that adrenal stress can cause worsening allergies. Along with B5 he reccommends magnesium. I have found the magnesium helpful for my allergy symptoms, but didn't notice any difference in my fatigue.

Re: addison's/adrenal

Usually if you are taking too much magnesium you will have very loose stools. If I take over 700 mg a day this happens to me. Maybe the B5 is counteracting the effects of the magnesium. What are you calling "huge amounts" of mag. and b5?
