Recently, we here at Integrative Psychiatry have been working very closely with Biogenesis on simplifying a general approach to adrenal burnout and fatigue.

In brief, adrenal/stress syndromes can be divided into three distinct but overlapping categories: Act Out ("Wired for sound"), Freeze Out ("Wired and tired"), and Burn Out ("Just plain tired"). Each of these stages is associated with specific symptoms and measurable biochemical imbalances.

Although we highly recommend Adrenal Testing, for many quite appropriate reasons, you may not opt for this. Either way, this treatment algorithm is desinged to help you select supplements based on which stage of adrenal burnout you are most likely to be in. Please refer to Dr. Dave's infographic to the right (click on image to enlarge) and the Adrenal Support Bundles PDF for further details.

As you can see from the graphics, it is important to know what your adrenal glands are doing (and particularly whether your individual stress syndrome is associated with high or low cortisol. Please follow this link for a more detailed discussion of Adrenal Fatigue.

General Adrenal Support Bundle

A question that often arises runs roughly as follows: "What if I don't know what stage of adrenal fatigue I'm in or what can I do even before the results of my testing come back?" That's where our General Adrenal Suport Bundle comes in:

  1. Omega 3-6-9
  2. Premiere Greens Multi
  3. Intestinal Repair Complex
  4. Ultra B Complex

This bundle is appropriate and safe for you to begin healing your adrenals even before you know for sure what your cortisol and other adrenal hormones and chemicals are doing.
