    Since my endocrinologist will not give me low dose Cortef for the morning I have been looking into buying an adrenal glandular. I am having a terrible time with sleep and coping with stress etc.
    I was on Cortef years ago during Lyme treatment and I know it helped me a lot.

    Has anyone taking any of these and if so do you have any recommendations. There are so many out there I have no clue which to choose. I have to try something and I am on my own so want to try and get a good one...I read taking an adrenal cortex glandular is best but I need some guidance here please....

    @soxfan - some 20 years ago my chiropractor who does muscle testing found that my adrenals were in need of support. I was very weak physically at the time. He gave me Drenatrophin PMG by Standard Process and I have taken an adrenal glandular off and on ever since. I'm currently taking Drenamin by Standard Process. They're very similar, I'm not sure of the difference between the 2, I feel the same taking them.

    I did try an adrenal cortex product once and reacted badly to it. I don't know why I do fine with plain glandulars and not the adrenal cortex extract, but that's the way I am.

    I've also used Adrenogen by Metagenics and Cytozyme AD by Biotics which were also good. These generally are available through practitioners like my chiropractor but sometimes you can buy them on-line.

    Muscle testing by a practitioner like my chiropractor has helped me a lot in determining what I need and how much to take so you might look into this. One place to find practitioners is the Standard Process website which has a search feature for health practitioners who use their products.

    @Mary ...I haven’t quite got up the nerve to take the one I purchased. I read a lot on them and decided to try the adrenal cortex. I have very weird reactions to just about everything so am still leery. I have an acupuncture appointment next week so will show her first for an opinion.

    I have never taken anything like this before. I did use Adrecore for a bit but it gave me a really strange feeling head fatigue so I quit.

    Thanks for the info and I will let you know what I do....

    I ordered the Thorne Adrenal Cortex...

    Good luck! We're all different - you might do very well with this as some people do. Whatever you do, just start low and go slow. When I first took an adrenal glandular, my chiropractor had me taking a large dose initially because I was so weak, and it worked for me, but I'm not recommending that you do that. But if you start with a very small dose and notice nothing, good or bad, then I would increase gradually and see how you do, as you may need more.

    @Mary ...I will start very low and see how it goes. If I don’t feel any difference I may have to go with straight adrenal. I am really doing this on my own since I have no doctors here that understand any of this.
    I think my Acupuncturist comes the closest but she can’t write prescriptions...

    Plus the treatments haven’t done anything for me 10 so far and since my insurance won’t cover them I will probably only keep the two appointments I have already scheduled.
    Then I will really be on my own in this...

    Hi @soxfan - I know how you feel. I have been pretty much on my own too, except for a chiropractor who does muscle testing. You might consider looking into this. I've been helped a lot with my adrenals and liver and other digestive issues and miscellaneous stuff by muscle testing. I would have been lost without my chiro. You can just call offices and ask if they do muscle testing; another route is to go to the Standard Process website which has a search feature for practitioners who use their products, who invariably do muscle testing.

    If my chiropractor had not had me take a high dose of Drenatrophin initially (determined by muscle testing), I think I would have written it off as useless, when it turned out to be enormously helpful, taken in the proper dose.

    I know nothing about muscle testing... Are you saying the chiro was able to tell it was helping after giving you a look over or YOU could tell it was helping?

    If I may answer, they put a vial in my hand and pushed my arm down. With some vials my arm would come down easily, with others not. I did not know what was in the vials.

    Turns out stuff I needed strenghtened my arm muscles. It lead to recommandations for several minerals and Biotics Multi Gland.

    I can now often detect which mineral supplement my body needs. Multi Gland always enhances me.

    My Acupuncturist did the same thing to me with pieces of paper...she had a different issue written on each. I would put one in my hand and she would try to push down. The ones she could were supposedly my problems. Turns out those three were...Adrenals...Fatigue....gosh can’t remember the third . The two that were not an issue were Adrenaline and Lyme.

    Weird...not sure what it really means.. I had no clue what she had written on the pieces of folded paper.
