I Am Living Proof That Addison's Can Be Cured - Completely!Hi, My name is Michelle and I was diagnosed with Addison's Disease in 2009. Prior to that, in 2006, I had been diagnosed with Adrenal Exhaustion and also Fibromyalgia, as well as PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, and Chronic Tendonitis in both of my arms.
When my Endocrinologist got my Addison's test results back, he couldn't believe it, so he ran me through the whole test process again a week later. Same positive results.
I was already on a whole list of presc
I began to study nutrition and tried many other forms of treatment, including acupuncture, physical therapy, meditation, and just about anything else I could get my hands on.

I gulped down green smoothies every morning for breakfast, ate tons of fresh, whole foods, and even got a formal education in nutrition counseling. It took me about 4 months once I started to decrease the hydrocortisone before I was completely done with it. Once off of the hydrocortisone for 2 weeks, I was able to get re-tested. The results came back negative, which didn’t surprise me at all – I already knew that I had recovered because of how great I felt! By then, I had a new Endocrinologist, and I asked her if she thought it was possible that I was misdiagnosed to begin with. She said, “No – I’ve seen your test results and they were very clear both times.” She was so thrilled for me, she said it was truly amazing and that I should write a book! That was over a year ago, and so far I haven’t written a book, but I did want to make this post to give hope to anyone out there who is suffering. I know what it’s like to be flattened. But, I also know you can recover! Thanks for reading. Namaste.
