Treating Adrenal Exhaustion

Hypoadrenia (Adrenal Exhaustion) is either a root cause or mitigating factor with many acute, chronic and recurring health conditions perplexing our society.  If you have worked with treating hypoadrenia for very long, you can attest to the high percentage of chronic recurring cases. Simply feeding the problem with nutritional and glandular therapies or working and reworking the blown neural vascular and neural lymphatic reflexes rarely corrects the causes.

The bottom line is the underlying causes for the adrenal burnout must be addressed or this all too common problem will continue to recur in epidemic proportions.

In the majority of cases, distress is the primary cause of hypoadrenia. Note it is “distress” (difficulty handling stress)—not “stress” that is the cause. Correcting the inner dysfunctions that create distress is key. Stress, itself, is simply the stimulus of life. How we process and manage stress determines whether the stimulus of life becomes a good thing or a bad thing for us. Stress can be the stimulus that causes us to do good things in this world. Stress is the motivating stimulus that drives us to solve problems and make the world a better place. The shocking thing is that 70 to 80 percent of all visits to physicians are for distress-related disorders. 80 percent of all American health problems are related to distress.

Difficulty handling stress weakens the adrenal glands and can cause both short-term and long-term illnesses. Whether it’s a temporary weakening of our immune system or a chronic disorder, distress is commonly the causative factor for hypoadrenia.

Homeopathic Solutions

There are a number of homeopathic stress related products in the market place that can be simply applied in the chiropractic practice. Whether the distress is mental, emotional or physical, homeopathy offers the chiropractor some simple solutions to these perplexing problems. The more intense the distress, the more frequent the dose. Distress is generally treated with an oral dosage of a specific liquid remedy. Many of the localized effects of distress can be further addressed with a topical dose of the same liquid. For example, if you are dealing with a stress-related headache or back pain, you can have additional therapeutic value by applying a specified homeopathic topically over the affected area. This way, you are helping from the inside out as well as the outside in. I have found both a faster and a higher percentage of results using the oral and topical dosages together.

Additional Causes and Homeopathic Correction

Toxicity: Homeopathy can activate the inner detoxification mechanisms so that they function properly. Most toxicity problems are not caused by the toxins, but by the dysfunctions of the body’s detoxification functions. This is why one person can have a mouth full of amalgam fillings and no problem with metal toxicity and another person have two or three fillings with serious toxicity problems. There are homeopathic formulas designed to activate our detoxification mechanisms and restore our normal detoxification, thus correcting and preventing future toxicity problems.

Any long-term toxicity issues can cause hypoadrenia. Homeopathic detoxification formulas can be key to correcting this perplexing problem. Illeocecal Valve Syndrome is considered by many to be the number one cause of auto-intoxification, allowing toxins to back up from the large intestine into the small intestine and be absorbed back into the body.

Immunity: The adrenal glands produce both pro and anti-inflammatory hormones. Long-term strain on the immune system and “difficult to detect”, low-grade infections can burn out the adrenal glands. Homeopathic formulas can correct the many subtle immune dysfunctions that allow low-grade infections to live within the body.

Drugs: Both allopathic and recreational drugs can create hypoadrenia. Almost every medication can burn out the adrenal glands, especially when taken over time.

Diet: Destructive diets, including excessive amounts of sugar, stimulants, alcohol and general junk food or our standard American diet (SAD), obviously need to be addressed to correct hypoadrenia.

Mental and emotional: In addition to distress are the recurring patterns of the past that can create unnecessary sabotage and stress. Tools such as homeopathy, Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST), etc., can all be helpful for addressing the underlying causes of hypoadrenia.

Breakthroughs in Detoxification with Homeopathy
Written by Frank J. King Jr., N.D., D.C.

We have discovered two primary negatives in detoxification: Toxicity problems have a tendency to create healing crises, and health problems can commonly recur.

We have used many combinations of detoxification products and techniques, including nutrition, herbs, fasting, various flushing techniques, specialty products, clays, colon cleaners, small intestine cleaners, colonics, enemas, massage, and homeopathy.  Fortunately, homeopathic detoxification and drainage remedies not only dislodge toxins in the body, as most other products do; they also activate the elimination functions of the body to work properly again.  By activating the body’s inner potentials to detoxify, homeopathy is able to maximize the body’s ability to cleanse itself and adapt to a continuously changing environment.

Homeopathy has certainly become the safest and most overall effective first detox product of choice.  Homeopathic detoxification and drainage formulas provide the following therapeutic advantages:

• Enhance overall health in most people
• Prevent healing crises and detox reactions from occurring
• Prevent reoccurrences of a toxic condition or illness
• Provide a better results in resistant cases
• Provide more complete cure
• Expedite the healing processes
• Help achieve greater results with other homeopathic formulas
• Help other products and procedures work better (nutrition, herbs, chiropractic, etc.)
• Activate further healing in cases where only partial correction has been achieved
• Prevent further accumulation of toxins
• Provide results in a broader scope of conditions, such as chronic or, even, so called “incurable” conditions.

The reason for the added results of homeopathy is its difference from nutrition and herbs. Homeopathy works, not so much biochemically, but rather bioenergetically to correct nerve interferences throughout the whole nervous system.

When the energetic control systems of the body (like the nervous system) work better, then everything else can work better. As the control system of the body works better, the body’s chemistry balances out. Together, chiropractic and homeopathy empower the chiropractor to better work with the whole nervous system.

Almost everyone has or knows of, what I call, an “Uncle Charlie”—the one who eats horribly, smokes, cusses and lives the most awful lifestyle, yet never seems to get sick; while others sway just a little in their lifestyle tightrope and get sick. The difference is that Uncle Charlie has the constitution of a cockroach. This means that his detoxification and defense functions are working well.

There are homeopathic formulas designed to activate the detoxification mechanisms of the body and maximize the ability to stay clean in a toxic world.  Some people have tried to target the toxin, while others have aimed to activate the detoxification mechanism, such as liver, lymph, blood, kidney, skin, lung and, especially, the ileocecal valve. There are also formulas to address general toxic related imbalances, such as acidity, yeast, etc.

The Ileocecal Valve (ICV) is a little known valve separating the ileum—last part of the small intestine—from the cecum—the first part of the large intestine. Autointoxication quickly occurs when the ICV spasms allow toxins from the large intestine to back up into the small intestine and be absorbed into the body.  The small and large intestines are two very different environments with two very different functions, and the ICV is vital to assuring the two environments don’t mix.  Those who apply its therapy consider the ICV to be the number one cause of autointoxication.

Detoxification and drainage formulas, according to European homeopathy, help avoid severe detox responses, by recognizing a hierarchy in the appropriate elimination function.  It is useless to stimulate the release of toxins from the tissue cells, if the body is not able to properly eliminate toxic wastes.

Detox responses may include mild to moderate nausea, mild to moderate increase in temperature, a recurrence of a recent condition that wasn’t fully corrected, or even a condition from as far back as childhood.  Other discomforts include fatigue, headaches, increased need for sleep, lack of concentration, insomnia, hypoglycemia, bad breath, skin rashes and eruptions, body or urine odor, sweats, soft stools, loose stools, depression, anger, runny nose, anxiety, watery eyes, nervousness, or nightmares.  If these conditions increase to the intensity of causing alarm or intolerance, the basic homeopathic formulas the patient is taking should be retested and reevaluated.  The body should then be allowed to go through this healing process or crisis. Although the extreme of this response is not common, it may be experienced in the more toxic and sensitive patients and is essential for a cure to finally be accomplished in this chronically ill patient.

Homeopathic detoxification formulations are essential for maximum results when working with the chronically ill and hypersensitive patient. The key to optimal success is simply fixing what you find on a deeper level.
