The medical literature based on studies reported in the book Safe Uses of Cortisol, by William Jeffries the Professor at University of Virginia dedicated his life to the search for a solution to deaths from flu pandemic outbreaks like the coronavirus. And though diseases like this mostly affect the elderly this is what he had to say of the implications of low cortisol:
“Although most fatalities occur in older patients with complicating illnesses that could impair resistance to any infections, at least a small percentage of deaths in influenza epidemics occur in young apparently healthy persons, suggesting an impairment of their defense response.”
Then referring to patients who had received cortisol without antibiotics:
“Clinical responses were striking. Within twenty four hours all patients felt much better, and within forty-eight hours Symptoms such as fever, malaise, and generalized aching had completely subsided, and they felt quite well. The initial dosage of cortisol was decreased after forty-eight hours and discontinued after six days of therapy. No relapses or complications occurred.”
You will need to support your adrenal function with S.H.I.N.E.; Sleep, Hormones(like Cortisol and ACTH), Infection prevention, Nutrition(sprouts), hand sanitizers, Vitamin C, Hormone balance, and Exercise
Sleep: Get adequate sleep, preferably eight to nine hours a night. Do not use an alarm to wake up, avoid coffee, and darken the room completely that you sleep in and be exposed to bright sun during the day. Hormones:
Hormone deficiencies can contribute to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Unfortunately blood testing misses the large majority of people with hormonal deficiencies in these illnesses. The large majority of people with fibromyalgia should do a treatment trial with thyroid. In addition, if you get irritable when hungry, adrenal support from Adrenal DMG will help reduce cravings as it helps put glucose, fatty acids and amino acids in the cells for energy.
Measure 24 urine cortisol and its metabolites do blood for ACTH, and saliva for cortisol. Most men with Chronic Fatigue, exhaustion and body pain find that their testosterone level is in the lowest 30% of the population. If a woman’s fibromyalgia symptoms are worse around her menses, estrogen and progesterone support may be helpful.
Immunity/Infections: Underlying viral, bacterial, bowel, sinus and yeast infections are common and can be contributing causes of Chronic Fatigue and susceptibility to the coronavirus.
Nutrition: To maintain normal health and optimal energy levels you need to make sure you get an optimal balance of nutrients, particularly as nutritional deficiencies can result from chronic fatigue. Vitamin B-12, magnesium, acetyl L-carnitine, glutathione, as well as your basic A, B, C and D vitamins are especially vulnerable to depletion. Take the products Stay Young, Insulin Mitochondria, LivDtox, Beet Vitality and Slim Blend Protein with plant based enzymes. Be sure you are plant based, sugar free, oil free and it’s ok to add salt to taste for chronic fatigue patients.
Exercise: as you are able at a slow pace gradually increasing. After 10 weeks on the first four steps above, you should be able to slowly increase your amount of exercise without being wiped out the next day. Don’t overdo it trying to follow “normal” exercise recommendations, as doing too much can result in Post Exertion Malaise, a condition that can last for days that leaves you feeling as though you were hit by a truck.
