Question hypothalamus extract

in James Wilson's section titled "the thyroid -- adrenal connection" he states "taking a hypothalamus extract may help normalize your thyroid as well as your adrenal function when they need a little fine tuning." (Page 237 of Adrenal Fatigue).

anyone tried this? I have hypoglycemia (adrenal problem) and believe i'm hypothryoid.. just started therapeutic trial a few weeks ago with thyroid extract and isocort but wondering if hypothalamus would also help??

When I was first diagnosed hypoglycemic and having hard time keeping sugar level high enough, my dr gave me a bottle of Bio-Glycozyme Forte. The bottle did not mentioned what it was for, but my dr claimed many hypoglycemics got relief from it. The thing is it has hypothalumus extract in it. Has a lot of other glandulars too, plus vitamins & minerals. The ingredients are extensive and rather disgusting to read/think about. However the stuff really helped! I quit having the wild swings in blood sugar when I took it daily and also found it would stave off a hypo event when I cheated and ate ice cream. :0 Whether it helps adrenals I can't say. But I felt like I had more energy when I took it. I stopped taking it and actually a few months later the adrenal problems reared their ugly head. So perhaps there is a connection.

thx angela, i'm already using isocort so i think i'll wait (i'm at 7 a day now) to see if this solves my hypoglycemia before trying the hypothalamus.
