okay, it has indirect adrenergic effects, but the main pathway is through nAChRs
the body tends to itself to near normal levels without the use of supplements to help the issue. most of the time, people tend to compound the issue by adding supplements to the mix and then not stopping.
also, addressing adrenal fatigue as "probably thyroid fatigue" would be quite the blanket statement, and sounds like a best guess if anything.
this is the issue of suppression and suppressing one's own body to not allow it to stabilize.
Thinking that the body will heal itself is very utopian. Body needs the right resources, and needs to be able to use them, 2 very big ifs. I haven't magically healed in the years I've been ill. Stabilization is a myth.Originally Posted by Bnatural
if you allow your body time to heal properly, it can overcome quite a bit.
stabilization is far from a myth. i'm not sure why you started a thread only to offer up a debate, but you seem to go against the grain based on your responses.
i guess this is where science tends to allow pros and cons for almost everything and each can choose their direction (see: creatine).
good luck in your endeavors.
I have extensive personal experience that directly opposes your idea.Originally Posted by Bnatural
Isn't caffeine similar though? I think nicotine screws with blood sugar so its not on my short list of things to try.Originally Posted by Whacked
Hmm, I tend to get choline headaches easily, I can never know if one pill of a-gpc or cdp will push me into the red zone. I do like the feeling of huperzine but again it is cholinergic, so shouldn't be used long term, and that time period of safety vs danger isn't certain.Originally Posted by zaire2d
Ginseng tends to push adrenaline, I eat a lot of liver so b12 is full unless I'm somehow not utilizing it correctly, the adaptogens which include rhodiola and ginseng tend to play around with adrenaline and thus aren't what I'm looking for although I have taken long courses f them in the past, they seemed to merely trick me into thinking I was fine.Originally Posted by Whacked
results can vary greatly from one person to the next due to various issues.
i can offer personal experience as an opinion and offer my thoughts on my experience, but one person and their personal experience means very little on the grand scale. your data would be listed out with 100 others and then research data could be drawn.
i can understand if you feel your body doesn't respond to this supplement or another supplement, but you cannot generalize it and decide that it applies to all. that is how it your previous posts seemed to be directed.
Supplements are not a replacement for behavioral healing. I'm glad you were put in an environment that forced you to stop distracting yourself and focus on learning better choices. I hope you didn't drift back to the place you were before you found some peace, but if you did I hope you're not blaming it on supplements you took.Originally Posted by Force of Green
My goal is not to invent a silver bullet. I believe everyone is different enough to warrant diligent self experimentation and data tracking. However, believing that the body will heal or stabilize itself to a similar or enhanced level is against natural laws. Every living thing on this planet is in a state of decay, some faster some slower. If the organism doesn't have the right resources, somehow can't use the right resources, is being blocked by a substance etc, then it will decay faster. Young people, genetically and culturally lucky people seem to heal quickly due to large amounts of youth hormones. Once those hormones are used up or are made in smaller amounts, decay or aging occurs.Originally Posted by Bnatural
Again, I am less concerned with certainty or the average consensus than I am with personal experimentation and data sharing.
In my twenties I was on one kind of bender after another, substances and emotional craziness. It wasn't until I started a 6 year meditation program that I moved past it all (this isn't bragging, "moving past" trauma and deeply held beliefs often looks like a nervous breakdown itself). All of the non physical skills, whether they're called emotional, social, communicative, creative, empathic... Exist intertwined with physiological and biochemical health. Do both and both sets will advance together.Originally Posted by Force of Green
Force of green, once you know your weak spots, you can outsmart yourself before you get too far off the rails. Track the data. I know that I start making bad choices if I drink alcohol so I stopped, also if I start becoming obsessed about something or think I only have a few choices in a situation - these are clues that my weak spot had been hooked and I can choose to unhook it.
