Adrenal Fatigue – ReSet and ReCover the Dr. Dean Way!

Hour One – 2-4-2019
Hour Two – 2-4-2019

Conventional medicine has a very narrow definition of adrenal function that swings between the two extremes of the adrenals being “entirely normal” or “totally destroyed.” Recently a customer reported that her endocrinologist scoffed at her saliva cortisol levels and her questions about her weakening adrenals and said, ‘the adrenals either work or they don’t work’. At the point they don’t work, he said he would give her a prescription for replacement hormones (synthetic).

In natural medicine we observe the adrenal glands usually function in between those two extremes due to many physical and emotional stresses that can strain the adrenal glands and diminish one’s reserve. Because the only solution that allopathic medicine knows is hormone replacement, they don’t recognize the need for mineral and vitamin support for the adrenals to prevent them from failing. When someone exhausts their adrenal glands through compulsive exercise, this is called “overtraining.” When someone eats a high sugar meal, the blood sugar soars and then crashes. The crash triggers adrenalin to push the blood sugar back to normal, which depletes the adrenals over time. The adrenal glands’ job is to keep the blood sugar levels constant but when they wear down, hypoglycemia can occur. When irregular spurts of adrenalin flood the body, anxiety and panic attacks are diagnosed. In none of these cases is the true cause of symptoms identified as adrenal depletion. Conventional medicine does not recognize adrenal depletion possibly because there is no prescription medication for weakened adrenals. There is only treatment for complete adrenal collapse – hydrocortisone. However, in natural medicine, the building blocks for repairing the adrenal glands are nutrients that are beyond the scope of conventional medicine. Unfortunately, when people who suffer from over exercising, hypoglycemia and panic attacks go to their medical doctor for a diagnosis they are given a prescription for antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication but not what they really need.

The adrenals don’t stand alone, so in order to balance your adrenals you also have to address your thyroid and your sex hormones. Dr. Dean calls it a three-sided stool. When one of the legs of the stool is shortened, it affects the other two. This can be seen on blood testing; when cortisol levels go up, thyroid hormone levels go down. There is an ongoing debate among natural medicine practitioners about what comes first, adrenal fatigue or thyroid insufficiency and what do you treat first? I think it’s a moot point because they are not looking at one of the main causes of both conditions – mineral deficiency, which means you can and must treat the two conditions simultaneously. Treating disease in a linear format, one thing at a time, is not consistent with the way the body works, where everything is interrelated and works synergistically.

Tonight on her internet based radio show, Dr. Dean will be talking about Adrenal Fatigue – ReSet and ReCover along with a wide range of health topics and safe solutions. You will love hearing the beneficial interactions with our callers and hosts alike including the body/mind connection, identifying the ‘conflict’ in the ‘conflict basis’ of disease and much more!!

  1. Hello Dr Dean
    I read the text and believe that there is some truth to what I read. I do need to talk to you about my case and see if you could help me. My name is Aida and I am 76 going on 77 in May, I have always been inclined towards natural ways to cure my body, even though it is almost a battle. Lately though I think my Dr’s have come to believe that I know what I am doing since I am still alive and on my feet, I don’t blame them that is what they are taught by schools supported by the Companies that provide so called medication. There is much more to talk and I would love to here your advice for my case. Thank you.

    P:S:- I was told that without balance between magnesium and potassium is very important otherwise a person can suffer from cramps in the legs. It is not enough in our food. How can we find the proper amount for each and where do we find a combination for both

  2. Artery calcification— Dr Dean hasn’t heard of vitamin K2? She need to look at these articles;

    K2 was studied as very effective for decalcification at 45 mg. Weston Price’s subjects consumed 10 times the amounts of nutrients than Americans at the time in the 1930’s. Keep in mind the animal sources of vitamin K2 are from pasture fed animals, and in the ocean, algae eating animals. They convert the K1 in greens to K2 in their livers. I can attest that when I am able to raise my own green feed for the rabbits chickens and goats, I get neon yellow fat, neon yellow skin (certain chicken bloodlines don’t impart this color, in the skin but it’s still in the fat.) Rabbits have neon yellow fat from the K2, and goats get yellow milk from live green feeding. Cows of course get VERY yellow milk from live pasture. Having had all these animals I could see and compare. My cow was eating green foxtails in December(not too cold yet that season, but foxtails seem to handle the cold exceptionally well, darn them. However they weren’t seeding yet.) This yellow is the K2 deposited in the fat part of these products. It also is deposited in the livers. It also caused orange egg yolks. And very hardy chicks if they were brooded and hatched.
    K2 drives calcium out of vessels and into teeth and bones where it belongs.
