Adrenal Failure?Hey everyone! A few days ago, I spoke with a chiropractor who also specializes in nutrition, and very different types of medical methods. She is not a fan of the way that things are handled in mainstream medicine, and we were talking about my symptoms, and how I have been recently diagnosed with POTS. She said that she thinks that POTS and orthostatic hypotension really have something to do with adrenal failure or insufficiency, and she explained how those glands work, and why an insufficiency would be the cause of POTS or OI. While talking, she pointed to a spot in her back where the adrenals are located, and it really struck a chord with me. That was the exact spot that I was infected with shingles a year ago, and when tested for viruses recently, I still tested positive for traces of the shingles virus, but it was overlooked. I have learned that many cases of POTS are brought on by viruses. WHOA!
In her experience, she suggests that if you take the right kinds of supplements and eat the right types of foods, the adrenal failure will fix itself, therefor ridding you of your POTS symptoms. She does not have my medical history on record or anything, but we just had this conversation, and it was very intriguing to hear such a point of view, since no one else had mentioned it. Have any of you heard anything like this from your doctors? I'm curious. After reading up on adrenal failure, the symptoms really are the same as those with POTS, so it all really made sense to me.
It's also worth adding that through using her methods, she has supposedly been cured of a disease that she was told was incurable, and has also contributed to the curing of MS in one of her patients, which is also thought to be impossible. It sounds a little crazy and out there, but she seems to really be passionate and believe in what she says, and I can't help but believe her too.
