Adrenal Exhaustion Alternate Progesterone Cream
As Natpro is unavailable I'm currently using Progesstelle which is supposedly Progesterone and fractionated coconut oil-not close to as good but I am 'making due'. Is it safe to take high doses of this, and to use it vaginally?
Currently am suffering from adrenal exhaustion symptoms again.
I took very high doses of Prednisone for adrenal exhaustion/asthma - I should say increasingly higher and higher and then EXTREMELY high doses over the course of more than a year. Thanks to Natpro and suggested vitamins/supplements etc. I am now free of the horrible Prednisone.
The last 3 or 4 months I've been low carb dieting and losing weight (I'm still very heavy-about 300 pounds at 5'4"). Also been taking probiotics. I take vitamin D patch and vitamin B patch. I have a stubborn case of skin fungus/candida.
Up to a few days ago I was walking 1/2 a mile or so a day and able to stay up more hours of the day. I also no longer had to take my cortisoid inhalor (Symbacort). I suddenly plunged back into adrenal exhaustion three or four days ago after adding these supplements-
Lecithin (2 or 3 times a day)
Fermented cod liver oil
Also probably exercised too much and too much stress.
I'm back using my Symbacort as well.
Was having a terrible time getting healing/relaxing sleep until I started up with the Progesstelle and then took L-Tryptophan 1500 mg. last night.
I have found that if I take anything which lowers cortisol levels my asthma kicks up and I go into the adreneal fatigue/exhaustion. I know that I get a negative effect from DHEA, also Taurine (if I remember the name rightly).
I confess I was feeling pretty good and was not taking the Natpro regularly.
I wonder if going low carb and taking probiotics etc. causes too much die off for my stystem to handle? Also it is spring, the pollen in the air/hot weather always make my asthma worse.
I take Psych meds (Effexor 100 mg. a day, Trazadone 100 at night-Effexor doesn't work very well any more-occasional Klonopin which also doesn't work very well).
Would like to know how much L-Tryptophan is safe to take as well.
I'm getting that tired feeling as I type so that's it! Time to sleep....
