Addison's Disease
 
See also companion article Adrenal support
 
 Addison's disease is a rare, chronic condition brought about by the failure of the adrenal glands, it is not usually diagnosed until well progressed, symptoms can include fatigue, weakness, loss of weight, faintness, low blood pressure, nausea, vomiting, salt cravings and painful muscles and joints.
 
The adrenal glands have an inner core known as the medulla and an outer shell known as the cortex. The inner medulla produces adrenaline, and the cortex  produces steroid hormones essential for life - cortisol and aldosterone. Cortisol mobilises nutrients, enables the body to fight inflammation, stimulates the liver and helps to control the amount of water in the body. Aldosterone regulates salt and water levels. 
  
Around 70% of Addison's cases are auto-immune related, where antibodies attach to cells in the adrenal cortex. These destroy the cells which make cortisol and aldosterone. The adrenal medulla is not affected, in which case, we would recommend that you read The Auto Immune Disorder Protocol

For non auto-immune cases, you should be guided by The Core Regime
 
 Physicians in China may prescribe Liquorice alone or with cortisol to treat mild cases of Addison's disease, in which the body produces too little of this hormone.

Removal of Blocks to Health, Healing and Wellness

We have defined the major blocks to health improvement which should be considered the number one priority for resolution before one goes on to a more specific healing regimen such as that detailed in the programme above. By removing these blocks one will feel stronger and more prepared for a specific programme and will achieve far greater success with it. Please read this essential article here

The Core Regime

Not all of the remedies listed here will neccessarily be needed. We strive to bring you the most effective remedies to resolve your health problems in the simplest supplemental regime possible. We aim to treat the actual root causes of health problems holistically rather than supply remedies that will give temporary or partial relief from only the symptoms. This has been our mission since the founding of Regenerative Nutrition in 1994. As we uncover more fundamental truths about the causes, and therefore the relief, of diseases and health problems we update and revise our product range and recommendations.

Above, we detail targeted remedy recommendations for Addison's Disease, but we further suggest that you view the core regime article and supplement pages by clicking here

To achieve overall good health and long term resolution of this health problem the remedies selected here should be combined with core regime remedies for the best results.

It may well be that there is some overlap and that many of the remedies in the core regime are listed here also.
