So, since finding out I had adrenal fatigue in January, I tried a few things like Holy Basil, to bring my high cortisol levels down, and then eventually settled on Seriphos, as it seemed to be doing the trick. Holy Basil didn’t feel like it was doing anything, but Seriphos helped my fatigue, poor stamina, stress levels, anxiety etc.
Two months on from taking one Seriphos tablet at bedtime each day, and I’m feeling a lot better. About 90% back to the old me.
I blogged a few days ago to say I’d stopped taking it, after two months of taking it every night, and mentioned how I was feeling fine. Well, now eight days on from stopping it, and I’m feeling great. If anything, the past few days have been my best in a long time. I haven’t been tired more than an average person, sleeping fine, getting up in the morning fine, not stressed etc. I’d say I now feel better than when I was on the Seriphos, and I think this is because the Seriphos can make you feel a little sleepier, as it helps you to get a good nights sleep, but I didn’t mind it making me a little more tired in the short term, if it meant fixing my adrenals and resolving my heavy fatigue in the long term. And I’m pleased to say, I think it’s done the trick!
I’m going to order my 24 hour adrenal stress test (four-point saliva one) from Genova next week, and when I’ve been off the adrenal support (Seriphos) for two weeks in total, maybe a bit longer just to make sure that it doesn’t interfere, then I’ll complete the test and send it back.
I’m hoping it’s close to being completely fixed now. I’m on top of the world with how I’m feeling lately.
