    This is the best information that I have listened to on adrenal fatigue. Since, I have most of the symptoms I will start on a good program to fix the problem.

    This was a valuable use of 20 minutes. Jonathon and Dr. DiMartino packed a lot into that time! The article’s list of symptom indicators was flabbergasting to me, too, because I’d not seen a list before that so completely applied to me.

    Back when I first developed hypothyroidism, I suspected that my adrenals were part of the problem. However, I had to practically beg to get my HMO to authorize an adrenal function test. I still recall these 15 years later the tone in my doctor’s voice (which carried an element of “see! you were wrong and I was right”), when she announced that I had nothing wrong with my adrenals. Feeling more than bewildered, I responded with “Nothing?” (finding it hard to believe that my adrenals had scored a perfect 100% of functionality). “Nothing,” she said, definitively. But what I wasn’t told is that all they tested for were Addison’s and Cushing’s, as Dr. DiMartino said. That interaction so very unfortunately set me back for a long time, and was yet another of the many disappointments I’ve experienced with orthodox medicine. As you may imagine, I really appreciate this far more relevant information. Thank you!
