I'm presently 18 months into adrenal fatigue so that places me within the "exhaustion" phase (..according to Dr.Lam).

Another strong indicator of that is that I'm now having "paradoxical" reactions to all herbs & supplements. In short,they are all having the reverse effect. So,I've recently had to stop all supplementation. As with most people on this site, I haven't had any luck finding either a conventional/alternative practitioner yet. Given the lack of help and the paradoxical reactions I'm at a standstill...even deeper between the proverbial "rock and a hard place."

I'll continue searching as well as maintaining the lifestyle changes,etc. that are helping to some degree. I share this in hope that someone else visiting this site may have had similar experiences with paradoxical reactions and where to go from there.

If you've found anything else that's helpful please respond. I will do the same as this progresses.
Thanks....Rob

''SURRENDER''
by: ROB TWO-HAWKS

I'd almost forgotten about this site.Thanks for the more recent comments about diet & rest.I do the best I can in both areas.Meanwhile,I'm discovering that ''Surrender'' is my best medicine.I'm a slow learner there(..like most of us)but it appears that almost 3 years of adrenal fatigue now is conducive to embracing the mystery.Best of luck to you all & thanks again.

Rest best medicine
by: Anonpattiymous

I am on day 3 of total rest. Just watch t v or eat or use bathroom. The astronaut s are confined 6. Days when returning to earth. Can't even go home. So I am trying it for 3-4days. Also herbs had no good reaction.

Blood Type
by: Toni K

I was wondering what blood type you are. I have had AF for most of my life. I am an O blood type and, I was born from an A Type mother who was unable to eat much fat. Needless to say I was so sickly that my mother didn't know whether I would ever be able to go to school. I wasn't dealt a very good hand for health. In 2007 I finally treated my body as though I had cancer and ate beef, sautéed onions, fresh veg juice, some green beans and a handful of walnuts in the afternoon. Ten days later my insides had a jump of energy. You may want to look into doing the Blood Type Diet for a better guide of foods that would be better suited for you.

been there done that
by: Anonymous

I have had adrenal failure for almost 10 years that I know of....mine shows up on the blood tests.....so it is real bad....I deal with it by diet.....no gluten, dairy, sugar, or caffeine....caffeine is a HUGE NO NO.....also no alcohol ever.....I rest multiple times during the day...laying down in bed.....I try to have lights out by 10-11 pm and sleep as late as my body wants me to.....most of my symptoms are better now....I don't have the shaking anymore.....or the startle reaction to the door bell etc.....or the heart racing too much...but if I eat sugar or gluten....then I notice a downward spiral right away...my 23 year old son now is suffering with this....he will not give up gluten and sugar so he is not getting better....he also keeps his computer on all night next to his head...which I think is really bad....you can also rub on hyrodcortisone cream that you get at the drug store.....hope that helps

To ''Anonymous''...

I am ''NOT'' seeing Dr.Lam.My reference to him was meant to imply that I've learned much more about the stages of A.F. from his site,and more recently,about ''paradoxical'' reactions.I was having these reactions for a few months(..after original good improvement) before discovering what the problem was...and Lam's site definitely cleared that up for me.I've emailed his site but haven't received a response yet...possibly a computer problem?Otherwise,on a small disability income I'm not sure I could afford that.We'll see.
Since I posted I have seen an experienced herbalist/etc.I've been on liquid herbs for almost a week and am having the same strong paradoxical reactions to these as well as difficulties with sleep.Without good sleep it's impossible to resolve A.F.so I'm suspending those as well.Things have become very complicated at this stage so it can be very frustrating.Still,it's important to hang-in.I will try to contact Dr.Lam's again to see if we can work something out.Thanks for posting and it'd be great if you could also share some of your own experience.
