Dr. Bashetti reported in the Journal of Endocrinology & Metabolism that "Hydrocortisone, used to treat Addisons's Disease, has recently been confirmed to be effective also in the treatment of CFS. This comes as no surprise if we consider that CFS and Addison's Disease share 26 common features." Folks, there are probably many, many types of CFS, but imbalance and deficiency involving our stress-hormones, affecting so many health-aspects, offers the most logical explanation AND treatment. Given, endocrinology isn't the most exciting or trendy subject, and the CFS-brain-fog makes it an extra challenge. Also, most doctors aren't in the loop on this, and the "natural" or alternative treatments are usually going in other directions. Are there "natural" supplements to really boost your cortisol (or receptors)? Worth trying also!
