So, since finding out I had adrenal dysfunction back in January of this year, I tried a few things such as Holy Basil, to bring my high cortisol levels down, and then eventually settled on Seriphos, as it seemed to be doing the trick. Holy Basil didn’t feel like it was doing much, but Seriphos helped my fatigue, poor stamina, stress levels, anxiety and more.

Two months on from taking one Seriphos tablet at bedtime each day, and I’m feeling a lot better. About 90% back to the old me.

I blogged a few days ago to say I’d stopped taking it, after two months of taking it every night, and mentioned how I was feeling fine. Well, now eight days on from stopping it, and I’m feeling great. If anything, the past few days have been my best in a long time. I haven’t been any more tired than the average person, I have been sleeping fine, getting up in the morning without issue and I have not been feeling stressed like before.

I’d say I now feel better than when I was on the Seriphos, and I think this is because the Seriphos can make you feel a little sleepier, as it helps you to get a good nights sleep, but I didn’t mind it making me a little more tired in the short term, if it meant fixing my adrenals and resolving my heavy fatigue in the long term. And I’m pleased to say, I think it’s done the trick!

I’m going to order my next adrenal/cortisol test next week, when I’ve been off the adrenal support (Seriphos) for two weeks in total. You can order this test in the UK here and worldwide here.

I’m hoping the adrenal issues are close to being completely fixed now. I’m on top of the world with how I’m feeling lately.
