I had been suffering from fatigue, insomnia and anxiety for years only to have been told by my primary physician that I would need to take prozac to improve my condition. I knew I was not depressed, but was told that if I took the prozac then my symptoms would not bother me. My goal was to resolve my issue, not to mask the problem. It took a few years before I found a naturopath who recommended ... Show Full Comment

I've taken this consistently for several years and have had no identifiable side-effects. Started taking by Dr. recommendation after having cortisol levels tested due to stress/anxiety, fatigue, and depression. I've also been taking thyroid and depression meds for many years.

Nutri-West Core Level Adrenal Support - I believe my does was too high. These should begin with tiny doses working up to what the body can handle. My Doc ended up selling me more supplements to treat new symptoms that, with a little research, I found were common side effects of adrenal support in too high of dose. Coincidence? I doubt it. He started me on three a day!!! I'm now taking 1/2 a pi ... Show Full Comment

I am doing amazingly well - my memory and strength have increased greatly and I feel better than ever but I'm quitting cause of concerns about becoming dependent and that it may stop working and I'll be worse off than before. My doctor told me to eat 60% raw foods and if I want a vegetable form of protein to eat mung sprouts, quinoa and adzuki beans. I also was prescribed 500mg C 2x day ... Show Full Comment
