Dr. Wilson's Adrenal Fatigue Supplement Program Reviews

by Owner
(Adrenal Fatigue Recovery.com)


The adrenal fatigue supplements developed by Dr. James Wilson, author of Adrenal Fatigue: the 21st Century Stress Syndrome, are the products that I consider to be the top-of-the-line when it comes to treating adrenal fatigue.

Starting on this program made a dramatic improvement in my own condition, and I wholeheartedly recommend it as a starting point for anyone searching for quality adrenal fatigue supplements.

Diet changes and other lifestyle changes are essential to a true "recovery", but don't make you feel better overnight. When you are in adrenal crisis, you need something that works NOW, to get you stabilized so that you can think clearly.

Dr. Wilson's program did just that for me.

The Adrenal Rebuilder stepped in and gave immediate support to my exhausted adrenals, allowing them to "catch their breath" and I was then better able to focus on learning what I should be doing to heal myself long-term, and felt better able to put those other things into practice.

I followed this program daily for about two years, then gradually started to reduce my dosages, occasionally dropping one component or another to try something else or test how I did without it. I found that I still needed the additional support when I was more stressed (traveling over the holidays, making another cross-country move, etc.) so I was on and off again for another two years.

I am no longer "on the program", but I do keep a bottle of Adrenal Rebuilder on hand for stress-dosing to give my adrenals support when I'm unusually stressed (holidays, traveling, etc).

I also keep a bottle of the vitamin C handy because I like having it available in a high-quality, buffered, time-release formulation. It's not just for adrenal fatigue, my whole family takes it!

I switch back and forth between the Super Adrenal Stress Formula and a general multi-vitamin, just to make sure I'm getting a well-rounded exposure, but always go back to Dr. Wilson's when I know I need the enhanced stress support.


It is my opinion that Dr. Wilson's Adrenal Supplement program is the "Gold Standard" in adrenal fatigue supplements, and the ones that all the others should try to measure up to.


In talking to people, I've found that what usually holds them back from trying Dr. Wilson's program is the cost.

Is it expensive?

*I* thought so, but when I told my husband about them and lamented about it being too expensive to try, his response was

"Are you kidding? If all it takes is a hundred dollars a month to make you human again, It’s SO worth it!"

Because the reality is, *I* wasn't the only one suffering with my adrenal fatigue!



ABOUT THE SUPPLEMENTS

This well-rounded program addresses all the major components of support for repairing your adrenal glands, and consists of 4 separate products:
  • Adrenal Rebuilder (an adrenal glandular),
  • Super Adrenal Stress Formula (a multivitamin),
  • Adrenal-C ( a time-release vitamin C).
  • There is also an optional Herbal Adrenal Support (which I have never personally used).
Doctor Wilson also recommends that you take 200mg of a magnesium supplement 2x daily along with this program, though he does not have one available in his product line. I like to take mine at bedtime to help me sleep.

The Adrenal Rebuilder, the foundation of the program, is an adrenal glandular, which is actual adrenal tissue (porcine) that has been processed to remove the hormones. I have tried other OTC adrenal glandulars that have not specified that the hormones were removed, and have always felt--funny--after taking them, kind of edgy or hopped up, is how I would describe it. I do not have that feeling when I take the Adrenal Rebuilder.

Dr. Wilson's Adrenal Rebuilder has other support glandulars as well (gonad, hypothalamus, pituitary) and this support of the entire HPA Axis is what makes this supplement different from all the others.

It makes sense that if your adrenals are exhausted, then the other glands that support your adrenals are probably happy to have a little boost as well. I have not found another product out there that includes this peripheral support.

While other multi-vitamins are just aiming at general support, Dr. Wilson's Super Adrenal Stress Formula is specifically designed to supplement the vitamins and minerals that are low when you have adrenal fatigue. I like that customization.

The Adrenal-C is designed to provide the sustained release of vitamin C throughout the day so your adrenal glands are getting a steady supply. It's buffered, so it shouldn't upset your stomach like some vitamin C's can. Vitamin C is critical to your adrenal glands' function, and when your adrenals are stressed, they use even more than usual.

The Herbal Adrenal Support is designed to nourish all 3 glands of the HPA Axis (hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal) which work together to help your body manage stress. I have not taken this component of the program, so I cannot give you any personal comments about it.

These supplements are designed to work together to address all the needs of a typical adrenal fatigue profile, so it's best to try the whole program for best results. And no, that's not a ploy to get you to buy more, it's simply the best way to start feeling better fast.

If you only take one component, you will still be lacking something somewhere, and then you will have wasted the money that you *did* spend, because you didn't address EVERYTHING that needed attention, and the supplement erroneously gets the blame for "not working".

Here is what I always suggest to friends who are skeptical: Try this complete program FIRST, for one month, as designed, and see how you feel. Then make the decision.

If you want to try to find some other products after that, you will have something to compare to. Keep good notes about dosages, dates, and how you are feeling in relation to any changes you make. I suggest only changing one component at a time to make it easy to discern the cause any of the changes you notice.

Adrenal Fatigue Quartet Review NEW
by: 40 year old woman from Australia

Hi,
I wanted to contribute my own experience of Dr Wilson's supplements, as I read lots of reviews before I decided to take them. I self diagnosed as adrenal fatigue based on two incredibly stressful events that happened in my life at the same time. I didn't want to see a naturopath personally as I was sick of dealing with heal professionals who didn't seem to know how to help me to heal.
Anyway, I read Dr. Wilson's book and stayed on his program for 10 months. I also had a Skype interview with Eric Bakker, the NZ naturopath who part owns the Australian/New Zealand rights to Dr Wilson's products.
In general, I found these products to be pricey, but excellent. It took me several months to get up to the full dose for severe adrenal fatigue as I think my body was so depleted of B vitamins in particular that it was very sensitive to the tablets.
After 10 months however, I felt as though, for the money I'd spent, I should have been making more progress. At this point I decided to have a personal consultation with a natural health professional in Australia who was able to tell me exactly what was going on in my own body. Consequently, I am now on tailor made supplements which are making me feel fantastic. I still think it is really important to take Vitamin C and B vitamins, but there are cheaper and JUST AS GOOD brands available to buy on websites like www.healthpost.co.nz Also, the alcohol based tincture did not suit my body at all as it was too warming. My instincts were confirmed by a TCM practitioner about this and Eric Bakker did not contradict me when I also gave him this feedback. So, in short, I would suggest that if you are going to spend so much money on the adrenal fatigue quartet, your money would probably be better spent going to get accurate and individualised hair mineral analysis, iridology, or whatever personalised modality you are attracted to. In the long run, you'll get better quicker and you'll also have the advantage of being able to give immediate feedback to your practitioner if you need to tweek things. Good luck everyone. I know adrenal fatigue completely sucks. But it is possible to feel good again - just hang in there and stay as positive as you can!

My body was too sensitive... NEW
by: Cathy

I started taking Dr Wilson's supplements and I was at that point in Adrenal Fatigue that my body was too sensitive for almost anything. I personally called Dr Lam (www.drlam.com) because I needed specialized counseling to help me navigate back to where my body could handle supplementation of any kind. We are still in the beginning stages (week 3) and they've had to decrease my dosages 3 times. I'm told that because of the advanced stage that I started at, this is normal. I am happy with this decision. I did however, purchase Dr. Wilson's book and thought it was excellent.

Wilson's Adrenal Supplement NEW
by: Anonymous

After ten years of Fibromylagia misery, I finally got to a D.O. who diagnosed me with Adrenal Fatigue, which causes FB. Following blood tests, she put me on Dr. Wilson's adrenal supplement in November of 2011, and now I am out of pain and the debilitating symptoms of FB. I have only had one set-back. Dr. Wilson's medications worked for me. I do take other supplements and compounded medications, but I believe Dr. Wilson's Adrenal Fatigue Supplement is the key reason I am healing.

Starting supplements NEW
by: Belinda

I've not quite been on The products 2 weeks and it's just the last few days I haven't felt so tired I still need to stop rest or even lay down when I can, but that unbearable tiredness seems a little better!
I have very bad nausea and apparently IBS so I find swallowing the tablets hard when I feel so ill I have to admit when I feel so nauseous and it's time to take them again I've been known to skip that lot! This is so silly and I know it's not going to help with my recovery!!
Sonething else I've noticed is a dull achy pain in the kidney area more likely the adrenals Makes me wonder if they are under stress or perhaps they are waking up!! It's going to be a long way to recovery but I've been sick so long I'll be sticking it out!!

Stomach disorders NEW
by: Anonymous

I have gastroparesis and my gall bladder has been removed. A benign brain tumor left me in chronic pain and believe me I HATE the pain medication and am very aware of it's negative affects. However, I have tried $30,000 of alternative treatments and gone off it only to become completely non functional from exhaustion from pain. I like Dr. Wilson's products but I've had to start with the Priority One adrenal chelate product because Dr. Wilson's program is definitely too harsh on my stomach. I've gone very, very, slow and tried going on and off the program several times. This is frustrating and would be open to any other suggestions because I think it would help more quickly. Also I take a lot of ginger, licorice, and am gluten and milk free. Horsesense1@gmail.com

These supplements are working for me-Thank you! NEW
by: Anonymous

I have to admit, I was skeptical about spending the money to try these products, but because of your recommendation I tried them. I am so glad I did! The adrenal rebuilder seems to be just what I needed. I look forward to feeling even better over the next few months.

Thanks for telling others about it. I am so glad there is a supplement out there that actually works, I don't know why more people haven't heard of Dr. Wilson.
