Saw my LLMD yesterday. Told him my present big symptoms are brain fog (as of the last week) w/ aggitation, relentless fatigue, and heel pain.

He said, "oh, heel pain. tells me we need to address the bartonella."

("well, yeah, that's what I've been saying -don't think you've been listening!")

Then he tells me to rub bee venom cream on my heel and take "Adrenal Desiccated" for my fatigue.

#1 - that all sounds great, but if they actually help and those symptoms would go away, how would he still know to treat the Bartonella?

#2 - looked at ingredients on the bottle of "Adrenal Desiccated" he sold me, and it says Bovine Adrenal and Carrot Root. Why in the world would I want "adrenal" from a COW in my body?

Anyone else take this? Or know anything about it? Anyone have an opinion about it? Am I overreacting? I looked up the side effects and couldn't find any, but how could a cow organ/hormone thingy be a good thing?

I was given dessicated bovine adrenal by my LLMD and I couldnt tolerate it.

Even taking only a quarter of a tablet made me feel wired. So I quit.

If you try it, start out slow. I do think its safe.

The idea behind taking an adrenal supplement for adrenal fatigue is that "like heals like".

Now the bovine adrenal gland will have all the necessary substances for adrenal function, thus supporting your adrenal. Additionally, some hormones or other active substances in there may help you too.

If you decide NOT to take the bovine glandular...

you can always supplement with the basics...

1) Vit C + Bioflavanoids
2) Pantothenic acid (B5)

And if I were you I'd get a good combo herbal supplement. Adaptocrine (rhodiola, ginseng, etc)

Icky, I really truly do not mean to be rude, but are you serious or did i just miss a funny cow joke?

She's being serious.

Startle Reflex is a big symptom of adrenal fatigue

My son took this when he was 4. Very helpful at the time -- especially helped to heal his gut, which is what the homeopath was targeting.

We didn't know he had congenital lyme at the time. Still seems like a good way to go though!
