  1. Adrenal Extracts - Do they really work?

    It's been almost five years since I had RAI and was identified by Adrenal Fatigue after six months of RAI. Initially I refused to accept that I could have any problem like adrenal and it's simple thyroid issue. I had all symptoms and signs of adrenal fatigue but I dont know....I was still trying to ignore it all together.

    I did adrenal saliva test after meeting Dr. Durrant Barry Peatfield and results came out extremely poor. Below is the screenshot how did they look at that time. ...
  2. Best Absorbed Zinc - Thyroid and Testosterone

    Since my early days of hypothyroidism, I have been struggling to get a zinc product which would work wonders for me. Initially I tried all different brands but noticed absolutely no progress at all......It seems that I wasn't taking any supplements at all.

    It could have been due to low adrenal reserves, deficiency in other vitamins and minerals and thousands other reasons which I don't know. Feeling I was wasting my money and perhaps hurting my body rather than benefitting it by continuously
  3. What should we do about rT3? - Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield

    You may remember that in order for thyroid hormone to work in controlling our metabolism it has to be converted from the basic, precursor hormone T4 to the active hormone T3. You will also remember that the amino acid thyronine (which is made by two tyrosine molecules coming together) when combined with four iodine atoms is how thyroxine is formed (which we know for short as T4). Then one of the three 5: deiiodinase enzymes removes one of the iodiio atoms and forms T3 (triiodothyronine or liothyronine), ...

    Stage 7

    We trust that we will not see many ASI tests like this one. There is little to say about it. The body has given up and the Adrenal is in a state of near complete failure. Fortunately, the vast number of patients today are helped so that they do not end up in this phase.

This is the real challenge to all physicians who desire to treat
  5. Adrenal Fatigue - Seven Stages - Stage 6

    Stage 6

    We might consider this key phase as the body's last gasp to protect itself before it gives up completely. Notice that the DHEA levels rise above normal and in a last ditch effort the body attempts to raise the Cortisol levels again. In this effort, however, the body is out of control and the stimulation is not controlled by the usual manager of this function ACTH. It is rare that we see individuals in this state.
