Hi @Jennifer! I’ve really enjoyed this thread and learned a lot from it—thank you for your explanatory posts and writing style!

I’ve recently been getting into honeydew and can totally tell the difference in effect between a very ripe one and an unripe one—the latter will wreck me, while the former will give me my life back.

I keep having spikes of high adrenaline throughout the day, often waking up in a very anxious and nervous state. Throughout the day I will have a high heart rate and low temperature. I recall in another thread that you mentioned having high adrenaline in the past. What worked in helping you resolve the high adrenaline symptoms?

Edit: I just saw your response to jet9 back in June, where you mention it happened to you because of gut irritation, or because of going too long without sugar, or having too much sugar at once. I will give these a shot :)
Oh good, I’m glad! It’s my pleasure! :)

For sure! Ripe fruit and unripe fruit are worlds apart in my experience, too.

Yep, from gut irritation but mostly from low thyroid function — NDT stopped the daily adrenaline induced convulsions and syncope episodes — and hypoglycemia triggered by too much protein without enough carbs. I found that milk and gelatin didn’t trigger my hypoglycemia but more than a couple ounces of meat in a sitting did, and that I need a carb to protein ratio of roughly 4:1 to prevent it, as well as salt — I tended to not use much at all.

Have you tried having some protein with your juice and are you getting enough salt? Prior to tolerating milk, I found that I did best accompanying the juice with a couple ounces of salted meat (scallops and crab) or gelatin — I kept a batch of homemade gummies (with salt added to the recipe) in the fridge or added hydrolysate to the juice. The only way I can think to explain it is fruit improves my mood/mental state, protein grounds me and salt calms my nerves.

Nice then, I like it!
You had a friend... I am certain that this guy was VOS. You still has contact with him?? I hope so.

DHEA is androgenic, for women its as anabolic as Testosterone. The balance is what matters. I read a quote from Haidut saying something like: "DHEA is essential to libido and to the sexual function of women, it even helps lubricate the vagina."

About B1: I would start at the lower dosages to know how my body reacts and slowly up the dose. Thiamine Is A Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitor As Effective As Acetazolamide
"The highest concentration of thiamine is required to inhibit hCA I and it is 380nM/L. This figure from a human study on the pharmacokinetics of thiamine shows that this concentration is achievable using a 1,500mg dose."

About niacinamide, its important that it is niacinamide not niacin, based on 2 studies, a dosage of 6 to 8mg/ kg seems to be the best!
Low-dose (but Not High) Niacinamide Reverses Reproductive Decline In Old Females
"The HED of the effective regimen was 6mg/kg daily and duration of treatment was 4 weeks. That means a daily dosage of 250mg-500mg for a month should be able to replicate the design (and hopefully findings) of the study for most humans."

Niacinamide Retards/Reverses Aging And Physiological Decline
Yep, VoS. No, unfortunately, we aren’t still in contact.

Oh, okay. Everything is good in that department so I’m thinking I probably shouldn’t mess with DHEA then. I’ll read through the threads you linked to tonight. Thanks for all the info! I really appreciate the help, Matheus! :)

I put that quote for illustrating how its important for women. Like prog, its very important for men, even Ray uses it.

The pleasure is all mine ;)

Hello again @Jennifer! I hope you’ve been great. I’ve seen in several of your posts that you’ve mentioned healing your adrenals, and I saw that you posted a list of helpful herbs including eleuthero, camu camu, echinacea, and passionflower.

My main question is, what were the biggest factors that allowed you to heal your adrenals? Did you do anything in addition to the herbs? Do you think taking a break from thyroid was necessary to allow your adrenals to heal?

Thanks.

Hi @Vileplume! Thanks! I hope you have as well. :)

The herbs were in combination with the fruitarian diet and kept my adrenals and thyroid stable during a time when I was dealing with a lot of stress caring for ailing loved ones, and NDT stopped the adrenaline attacks and syncope episodes initially so it definitely helped take the burden off my adrenals, giving them a chance to relax, but I’d say the biggest factors that helped were:

1. Going fruitarian. Prior to this, I had been living with extreme pain for years since my spine collapsed and because I don’t tolerate medication—it makes me vomit so I would have risked injuring my weak, interlocking ribs (due to the osteo and resulting kyphosis)—I had to live with the pain and that in itself was a huge stress. I couldn’t even lift my arms up without my ribs snapping together and re-tearing the cartilage in my chest. The pain vanished within days of going all fruit. It also stopped the hypoglycemic episodes I experienced since birth. I’ve since learned which proteins and how much of them I can have without triggering the pain and hypoglycemia.

2. Refeeding. By refeeding, I don’t mean what is often promoted around here and by health bloggers/vloggers. There weren’t any minimum calorie targets to hit. For me, it was about frequent feedings of specific foods to keep stress hormones down and my adrenals calm. I used foods I enjoy, that digested well, didn’t irritate my intestines, and kept my sugars stable. Each morning I made up 4 liters of fresh pressed juice, or Thai coconut water, with collagen and salt added and sipped on it throughout the day. I also made up sweet and salty gummies in bulk so that I’d have some I could just grab from the fridge or keep with me if I was away from home.

3. Relaxing. Finding ways to relax my body and highly active mind was essential. The main things were napping whenever possible and meditating. Music and dance are my main forms of meditation, but even long walks with my dogs, swimming, massages, warm baths with magnesium salt and calming oils like chamomile and vanilla or something as simple as building with Legos or coloring, helped quiet my mind and relax my adrenals. When I was having the daily attacks last winter, my best friend would take me out at night to get cold air and we’d drive around looking at light shows, you know, the ones where you turn your radio dial to a specific station and the music syncs up with the lights? They’d practically have me in a trance. lol

4. Releasing. Expressing my displeasure and pain wasn’t a strength of mine so I had, and still have, some stored up energy of past trauma, guilt, shame, fear, heartbreak, disappointment and frustration, that needs releasing, as well as disempowering beliefs and dysfunctional habits. There are many constructive ways to do it, but a good cry in the shower, jumping on a trampoline/rebounding or dancing in my bedroom like a maniac—think Jennifer Beals in Flashdance kind of maniac—until I have completely exhausted myself, works best for me. The last two may seem counterproductive given I’m trying to overcome thyroid and adrenal issues, but much of that is the result of suppressing my voice and emotional junk robbing me energetically.

I’m sorry if that was too simplistic and not at all helpful. I’ve tried so many things in the past in an attempt to heal but I seem to respond best to keeping things uncomplicated and in most aspects, enjoyable. I know many people have found the following helpful but most isolated supplements/drugs, consuming foods I hate because they’re supposedly healthy or avoiding foods I enjoy because they’re supposedly unhealthy, and expending tons of energy on special breath work techniques, nervous system retraining therapies etc., just stressed me and my body out more.

Hey Mis,

I remember a forum member Jennifer went back and forth with other member Vision of Strength here and on another forum. Were that you? Apologies that I am not asking something specific about your thread but I am curious how is he doing. Over the years I've noticed tendency for forum members to crack Peat's work and then they would take off (hopefully to promised land ha ha). Also apologies if I am confusing your name with somebody else ☺

Hi @Uselis! No worries! Yes, that was me. The last time he and I were in communication was on the other forum close to 4 years ago. I emailed him but never received a response so I don’t know how he’s doing, unfortunately. Sorry!

No, not too simplistic, and it certainly was helpful! Thank you for such a thorough response. I love those light shows, and I want to get some Legos too. It sounds like you have an awesome best friend.

I hope you don’t mind if I ask you questions in the future. You’ve been a helpful resource!
