Hormone Imbalance
« on: October 25, 2020, 02:42:01 PM »
I feel like some of my symptoms are related to a hormone imbalance.

My adrenal, thyroid and sex hormones have been abnormal at times:
1. High Cortisol and very high Aldosterone (blood taken AM).
2. Thyroid - Mostly subclinical hypothyroid (underactive) but actually went hyperthyroid (overactive) for a month following dangerous antibiotics.
3. Sex Hormones - High SHBG, high Prolactin.

I've tried supplements like DHEA and SAM-E which both made me very stressed and short-tempered. I seem to have improvements from 100% pure orange juice (cheap supermarket brand not the expensive Tropicana stuff).

I'm now looking at supplements that could lower stress hormones so I've ordered some Sensoril Ashwagandha from the brand Time Health. Will test this over the next 2 weeks.
Disclaimer: Please research all supplements thoroughly and take them at your own risk. I am not responsible for any adverse reaction you may suffer.

Avoid all Fluoroquinolone antibiotics including Ciprofloxacin, Levaquin and Avelox.

Look into Ray Peat principles-it's focused on lowering stress hormones boosting metabolism.
INTP, 19 y.o. aware of POIS since 2019 when realized by abstaining that O/WD gives POIS, likely had it since puberty, fatigue, brainfog, clumsier, slower thinking/processing, voice volume goes down, sometimes harder to look in eyes, lower stamina/strength
