I really don't know enough about
I have been dealing with ongoing chronic fatigue issues. I have helped my fatigue issues with other treatment, but it is still very much prevalent. So, I've been wondering about
adrenal issues (I've been under a lot of ongoing extreme stress over the years).
I recently tried licorice (which I just posted about
today), and I noticed a definite improvement of energy. I feel more "awake" than I have in a really long time. I don't know if it will last, but I'm enjoying every second of feeling "awake".
I don't know a lot about
licorice herbal, but I was reading in different sites about
licorice herbs and cortisol levels.
But I thought I'd pass this along in case it may help you:health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/natural-medicine/herbal-remedies/licorice-herbal-remedies.htm
The remarkably sweet saponin glycoside glycyrrhizin is what gives licorice its characteristic flavor. (Glycyrrhizin is 30 to 60 times sweeter than sugar.) Glycyrrhizin is also an anti-inflammatory, and licorice also has been used to treat inflammations of the lungs, bowels, and skin. Glycyrrhizin is one of the constituents found to prolong the length of time that cortisol, one of the adrenal hormones, circulates throughout the body. Among other actions, cortisol reduces inflammation. Anything that prolongs the life of cortisol naturally helps to reduce inflammation.
Kid#1: Extremely sick for several years, very difficult to treat, but much better lately!
Kid#2: Very sick now despite being treated for years, very bad year
Kid#3: Doing great, minor relapse, but great again (ironically had least and shortest treatment)!
Me: Adv Labs positive 2016 (suspected I passed to my kids) - not as sick as others, mostly battling fatigue, kidney, heart, and yeast issues
