    Hey All,

    About 6-7 years ago I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue. My doc suggested Seriphos. I took that with another adrenal support supplement for a couple years and things normalized. I have been reading up here that Seriphos actually lowers adrenal levels.

    So I am confused. Can anyone educate me?

    I have a lot of health problems causing a ton of my health is complicated. I am going to an integrative doc next week. And getting more and more happy I made that appointment!

    Seriphos helps lower cortisol levels, not adrenal levels. They're not quite the same thing. I took both Seriphos and an adrenal glandular to help support my adrenals. My adrenals were very weak at the time. But I had high cortisol at night, so the Seriphos helped normalize my cortisol levels, while the adrenal glandular helped strengthen my adrenals.

    HOpe this helps - good luck with your doc next week -

    I'm sorry to hear you're so sick - I'm finally starting to feel human again.

    One thing I started taking while sick was honey. I generally avoid it because of the sugar and extra calories but one of my sisters takes it when she gets sinus/cold issues and it helps. She was in Italy I think once, very sick, and the waiters brought her honey, everyone told her to take honey, and it actually worked. I don't need the calories but nothing was helping so I started the honey, as well as yin chiao (Chinese herbal combo) and zinc lozenges.

    I hope you feel better soon!
