Which brands do you use that are free from contaminants?
I rarely use brands. I make my own formulations so I get most of my stuff directly from the raw material suppliers and thus I get the Certificates of Analysis on each shipment coming straight to me. But most manufacturers also have their own in house labs and retest each shipment to make sure the findings match.
Ate their certificates of analysis done by a third party lab?
The exporter supplies their COAs then the raw material suppliers retest the products to make their own COAs then many manufacturers also have their own in house labs for testing again to make sure the testing matches. Some companies do send out samples if they do not have in house laboratory services.
Yes, m'lord. I was foolish for thinking I could exchange information with you. Please don't use the force to choke me out from across the room.
Also, while you're pontificating, could you expand on this one: "The adaptogens help to build up the adrenals and get them functioning properly again."
If you are fixing your lightsaber, no worries.
My postings are not for you personally. Sorry, but you just are not that special. I post knowing that there are people on these forums that really want to learn. Your sarcastic crap just proves to me that you are not interested in learning. Apparently you think you have all the answers already so why don't you do the teaching Master?!!!
By the way have you considered the fact that the suppressed anger you present is not helping your adrenal fatigue?
"Apparently you think you have all the answers already so why don't you do the teaching Master"
WOW.. If there is anybody on this whole site who thinks that they know everything, It is most definitely you Hveragerthi. Your attitude is so disgusting!
I would like to read testimonials on your forum who have successful treated adrenal fatigue using your methods.
Why don't you actually try reading my posts before rushing to judgment. You will find plenty of posts where I flat out state I don't know. I have also stated enough times in the past that I don't know everything, just like everyone else. But some people simply have anger issues they need to deal with. Of course this is a symptom of adrenal fatigue, so I guess I should expect more of these irrational outbursts from people on this forum. So don't worry I won't take your emotional issues personally.
By the way you will find testimonials from people on my forum for a variety of issues. Not all adrenal issues. But many of the people I have helped get over their adrenal fatigue in the last 19 years don't post on CZ at all. In fact I have only been on CZ for 19 months myself and have only had the forum for about 11 months. So you are not going to find testimonials from the majority of people I have helped over the last 19 years with alternative medicines on CZ.
But I really don't care about testimonials. They are just fluffy ego boosters. What is important to me is fact presentation, especially since I don't plan to stay in medicine the rest of my life. So I am trying to share the knowledge I have gained from my work in both mainstream and alternative medicine as much as I can before moving on. People can research these facts or use simple common sense to decide what they wish to do. In fact if you again read through my old posts I encourage people to research all claims being made on CZ and other internet sites, including the suggestions I make.
Actually, I have read many of your posts so Im not rushing to judgment here.
Yes you did and you are still doing it which is why you are trying to pick a fight rather than talk about adrenal dysfunction.
99%+ of the posts I have read of yours, you state your position as fact. There is no room for disagreement from these positions of yours.
More proof of your rush to judgement. I have no problem with people disagreeing with me PROVIDED that they present some type of real evidence to back their claims. When people come back with "your wrong" or "doubly wrong" as their sole evidence then yes I get irritated with these people. This is because they are here to play games, not to discuss the topic. Actually just like you are doing in your posts right now.
Anger? I can link to MANY post of yours where you demonstration much anger. So maybe this is a symptom you need to deal with.
Again more proof to my claim about your rush to judgement. If you bothered to follow the threads back and know the whole history yes I get frustrated with game players and people who continually twist what I say. For example I go t really fed up after I posted the article about iodine causing acne in SOME people. Yet several of the iodine advocates kept saying that I was anti-iodine, which I am not, and kept claiming that I said that iodine causes iodine in everyone, which is not what I said. And even when I repeated numerous times that the studies show the iodine can cause acne IN SOME SENSITIVE INDIVIDUALS they still continued saying that I was claiming that iodine caused acne in everyone. I could not make it any clearer and I emphasized what I said over and over yet they still kept twisting what I said so yes I finally got angry. Hmmm........ just like you are trying to twist the facts right now. But it took quite a bot of this game playing before I finally got pissed off. This is not a sign of adrenal dysfunction. But hey, that is why I am here to help people like you understand the difference. People with anger issues from adrenal dysfunction fly off the handle at the slightest thing due to the lack of an anti-stress hormone being released by the adrenals.
In addition if you were not twisting the facts then you would have also pointed out that I never start any attacks. I treat people the way they want to treat me. If they want to treat me with respect then I will treat them with respect. If they want to act like a jacka** then I will treat them like a jacka** since apparently this is what they understand.
Ive seen you post much about adrenal issues and you are willing to help which is great. Just seems that stage 2 adrenal fatigue and up are not easily treated by your recommendations. I have noticed that those who asked for your advice in this area, move on to different forums a couple of months down the line.
LOL!!! Boy you are desperate. The majority of people on my forum were posting on other forums long before I came here and they still continue to post on my forum as well as the other forums. Why not? I don't have all the answers so asking other people for suggestions can give them other possibilities to research or try. If you had a mass and the doctor said it was cancer and he wants to operate right away are you going to do it. Or are you going to get other opinions and research other possibilities first? Because you ask other opinions or research other options does this make the doctor bad or mean they do not know what they are talking about? Of course not.
Testimonials are good for others to read as it provides encouragement. Yes they can be used by some as "Ego boosters", but in your case your ego is super charged :)
ROTFLMAO!!!!! I see you want to be put in the jacka** category. Its just a shame that you feel you are so special that you can make the Adrenal Support Forum your personal forum to twist the facts and bash people rather than discuss adrenal issues.
HV, I cannot tell you how much I value these responses; this kind of information.
You made a comment in a post recently:
"The fact is that we do not need massive doses of vitamins or minerals. This is the exact reason that the body works so hard to eliminate the excess vitamins and minerals it cannot use when people megadose. And all this work is just more stress on an already taxed system."
An amazingly simple and predictable thing keeps happening. When pursuing a health related concept, instead of looking for the shrink wrapped, pressed pill, packaged vitamin, mineral, herb, whatever... because of being vigilant in your forum and listening to what you continue to espouse, I look for the nutrient based on the natural food side of things.
You know what? Take adrenal fatigue for instance. has been a huge lesson. When pursuing the processed based solutions, results are always all over the map. They are not consistent much less sustainable.
When staying intent on the nutrient side of things, like, ingesting the natural food side of a solution, guess what? It works far better. Far more consistent. Far more predictable. And sustainable.
Hardly news to you or most. But I have to say, and everyone is different, but here, this simple way of seeking out the nutrient or natural food approach has such superior results than chasing down aisles of pills and supplements. That is here.
Anyway, wanted to again acknowledge how much your skills and experience have an impact.
Thank you very much. I have been working with alternative medicines for so long and have seen so many people improve from adrenal dysfunction with these simple suggestions. It is easy and often very quick to work. But a shotgun approach is not needed, and in fact can end up leading to a worsening condition or other side effects. A very simple concept that we see all the time in mainstream medicine, which hurts people all the time from using the shotgun approach. Basically they think they need a shotgun to kill a fly as opposed to the lighter and less damaging effects of the fly swatter.
I thought high-dose predinose was worse than a band-aid. Over time it causes your glands to think that they don't have to produce as much and so you grow dependent. Did I hear right?
Prednisone like all hormone replacement and glandulars will atrophy the glands that would normally produce those hormones. This does lead to an dependence on the external hormone source.
