It is too early to evaluate regarding the effect of the glandular pills and liquorize. I do not see that any virus or pituitary dysfunction are reponsible for the lack of effect.Give it some time and go with the recommendations of your therapist.
Along with your natural glandular pills it is essential to take B5 100mg 3 times daily, B complex 100mg. twice daily and high dosage vit.C + bioflavinoids 4000-10.000mg daily divided in doses. L-Tyrosine 500mg on empty stomach,aids the adrenals by relieving excess stress on the glands. Milk tistel extract will help balancing the liver and that has an secondary effect on the adrenals as well. Other useful herbs are astragalus and echinacea. Eat plenty of fresh green leafy vegetables and fruits, brown rice, olives, nuts and whole grains. Avoid completely alcohol, caffein, tobacco, fatty fried or processes food, red meat and sugars. These are all putting unessessary stress on the adrenals.
I feel that the fear itself aslo play and important role and are weekening the energy in your kidneys and adrenals.If you are in doubt regarding inherited dispositions you should test the levels of adrenal cortical hormones. Try to be as clear as possible about whatever can be measured. This will reduce fear and help you to give your full attention to the healing process.
Lots of love, Swami
