In this video, I explain how the mechanisms underpinning a condition known as "adrenal fatigue" have been gravely misunderstood in the past.
In short, "adrenal fatigue" likely has nothing to do with the adrenal glands being exhausted, or being unable to produce stress hormones.
Likewise, the concept of "pregnenolone steal" is a myth which is not supported by science.
Hence, protocols designed to provide the adrenal glands with supporting raw materials are not necessarily addressing the problem.
However, the above does NOT mean that people suffering with these symptoms, who also fit the clinical presentation. should be ignored.
In fact, adrenal fatigue DOES exist... but the mechanisms behind the condition are quite different from what they were once thought to be. -
