Addison’s Natural Remedies

Low cortisol production from the adrenals can lead to Addison’s disease. A loss of aldosterone can cause low blood pressure, dehydration, or even shock. Another sign may be excessive skin pigmentation, and hypoglycemia. Causes of Addison’s can come from autoimmune disease, cancer or other chronic wasting diseases.

Modern medicine treats Addison’s with steroid treatments that may have to be taken for the rest of your life.

It may have come from long-term stress or some severe chronic wasting disease such as cancer. It has been documented in homeopathy to be reversible supported by cell salts, and herbal therapies.

What else you can do: eliminate tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea and soda. Reducing stress is a must, as well as using Stress Multi-Vitamins from New chapter for optimal nutrition, and Amla-C or New Chapter’s C-Food Complex.

Disclaimer: some drugs and herbs should not be combined.

Natural Healing Protocol: Combining supplements will do more to support your body’s ability to function properly than using just one. Use the following remedies for best results — your ability to heal will depend on the severity and length of time your symptoms have been present.

Adrenal Fatigue Natural Remedies

When your adrenal glands are so fatigued, it causes low energy, tiredness, exhaustion, weakness, allergies, sleep problems, low sex drive, poor concentration, and the inability to cope with stress. Causes may come from nutritional deficiencies, adrenal or pituitary tumors, or prolonged stress.

Modern medicine often ignores the causes and uses steroids or stimulants with their attending side effects. Use the natural way to help adrenal fatigue through good nutrition and helpful supplements to rehabilitate the adrenals.

Diet: remove tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, and fast foods. Also exercise moderately and sleep eight hours a day.

Some of the most important nutrients are to use a whole-food source such as using Stress Multi-Vitamins from New chapter for optimal nutrition, and Amla-C or New Chapter’s C-Food Complex.

Cushing’s Disease Natural Remedies

Symptoms include muscle wasting, fatigue, moon face, buffalo hump on upper back, fat on abdomen, thin bones, diabetes, fatigue, sleep, depression, and emotional problems.
