Hi Wotan, thanks for posting, I have been trying to go as Homeopathic as possible(unfortunately I have illnesses that can't be treated All naturally). Since I got diagnosed with CFS/EBV and Gluten, Wheat and Dairy Intolerance, I have definitely been going Organic and I take Mag. Malate(heard about it on this website)Potassium, Omega-3, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, B-12, Calcium and a chewable Multi-Vitamin. I also have 5-6 prescriptions but thank goodness I also have a Chiropractor who knows I can't afford to see a Naturopathic Dr.. I had read some research when I first got diagnosed that said 65% of CFS were actually Adrenal Fatigue(the rest belonging in either the Mitochondrial group or the misdiagnosed something else group). My Neurologist sent me to and Endo 3 or 4 years ago after a low Cortisol and Testosterone test to have my adrenals checked. I had the tests, they were "inconclusive" and then she promptly lost them. I got set up to do it again and the Hospital quit taking my insurance! So when I got to the state I just moved to and went to see my Mom's Chiro, the first visit, after hearing all my symptoms and issues, he said "that sounds like Adrenal Fatigue, have you been tested?" See Above-so he ordered me these Homeopathic Adrenal boosters, he said if I felt better while on them I definitely had AF and if they didn't do anything than that wasn't the problem. 3 weeks it took him to get the right answer, after 6 years of looking. I don't mean they are a super pill that Cured me, they have just given a clearer head and more energy than I had in 6yrs. I am going to be switching to a Mineral Supp. in a couple of weeks, so we'll see. At least I have Hope again! I had given up but now I can actually make goals again, small ones, but its Wonderful! Sorry this is so long, I've been waiting to get this info out on the site(computers have been down), so I hope this helps at least 1 person and I'll keep posting even if I crash and burn :(o)
