I'm new to the forum.
I was told by a Holistic Practicioner that I have Adrenal Fatique. She said that my blood pressure is REALLY low and that my adrenals are basically shot. She has some natural suppliments to help, but warned that the Advair that I take for asthma is causing my body not to make it's own cortisone which affects the adrenals. I talked to someone recently who was stressed out like I am and exhausted. He is recovering with acupuncture and herbs. Anyone else dealing with this?

You're come to the right place.

I'll fill you in on a little bit about this, but I also want you to check out my thread, as well as sparkers.

I've tried everything so far. Accupuncture did nothing for me. That's not to say it won't for you, but it didn't help my fatigue as all. I've also tried the holistic approch, chinese herbs... nothing.

Yes, you can get better in time with an naturpathic doctor... but you're going to be on herbs, healthy diets, supplements and exercise for a long time, without feeling any better.

Right now, I'm trying to get a doctor to proscribe me hydrocortisone. This will make a world of a difference. It already has for a user named Tru.

Check out my thread and sparkers thread, also look at Tru's.

Good luck, and welcome to healing well.

BTW... my fatigue also started after stressful events

While Advair does have steroid in it, from what I have read the amount absorbed into your blood stream is very small. Is this holistic practitioner suggesting for you to stop taking the Advair? If so, I would be very careful since you take a chance to have respiratory symptoms and I don't know how bad your asthma is.
