The Adrenal Glands: Adrenal Fatigue, Toxic Metal Accumulation (Chemtrails) and Lyme Disease


When dealing with chronic Lyme disease, always worth realising and remembering that reversing adrenal fatigue and nourishing the adrenal glands can be a major important strategy. If all else fails it should be remembered that Dr Wilson NB science with the hair unwashed at Arizona labs plus the lifestyle strategies can be a major support to the adrenal thyroid gland axis that takes into account 21 st century chemtrailing: something TCM doctors are unaware about and don't realise Chinese herbs have loads of toxic metals in now. - Adam ( Will try and make this blog more exciting once I work out how to paste photos in )
-----------------------------------------
We previously discussed how Lyme disease has an effect on adrenal health since Borrelia infection causes chronic stress. This stress forces the adrenal glands to maintain a high level of function for an extended period of time, eventually wearing themselves out and dropping into adrenal fatigue. https://www.drlam.com/blog/afs-and-chronic-lyme-disease-symptoms/15753/
When the adrenal glands are in a state of fatigue, they are unable to produce and maintain the proper levels of hormones to keep the body at proper homeostatic balance, which tends to generate more stress that forces the adrenals to try to work harder – creating a vicious cycle. Adrenal fatigue has many nonspecific symptoms as a result of ity affecting multiple organ systems throughout the body. This may sound similar to Lyme disease, which is not a stretch, considering that both conditions involve multiple systems in their latter stages. The similarities actually go deeper than this, for example: brain fog, anxiety, migrating pains, insomnia and irritability are all potential symptoms of adrenal fatigue and, as discussed, these are also all chronic Lyme disease symptoms.
-----------
The two conditions interact and strengthen each other in a kind of terrible, malicious synergy; not only do Lyme disease and adrenal fatigue feed into and worsen each other, but they share a large area of symptoms overlap. This deep integration of the conditions makes it difficult to tease them apart and tackle them separately, and this has significant repercussions for recovery.
------------------------
Fighting Chronic Lyme Disease Aggressively – a Lost Cause
-----
Conventional antibiotic treatments simply cannot beat the Borrelia bacteria behind Lyme disease. In acute Lyme disease cases where the bacterial titer is high, antibiotics can help to decimate pathogen population. Once at the level where it enters a stealth infectious mode, however, only the body’s natural defense systems can deal with the constant low level toxic assault. It is important that the body be healthy and energized with adequate nutrition to be able to handle this stealth infection and not become fatigued. Antibiotics do nothing to help this process, and in fact may hinder it, making it utterly unsuited to address chronic Lyme disease symptoms.
Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, antibiotics are a necessary evil in the modern conventional theory of medicine. Antibiotics don’t just attack bad bacteria and organisms, they are indiscriminate in that any organism or cell that is susceptible will be attacked and die. This includes many populations of good bacteria that make up the human body’s internal microbiome and even some of your own human cells. When our microbiome is off-balance, our immune system is in disarray, and the body thrown into a state of inflammation. This ultimately weakens the body, while allowing the Lyme pathogen to prosper. It should come as no surprise that repeated antibiotic therapy invariably fails in chronic Lyme treatment.
Compounding this is the fact that once the cells and organisms are killed off by the antibiotics, their corpses decompose and become toxic detritus that clogs up the body. This release of toxins from the death of microorganisms is known as a die-off reaction, and this can cause a great deal of stress for the liver and kidneys, which are already overburdened due to the general body-wide slowdown caused by adrenal fatigue. Recirculation of such toxins further contributes and triggers a retoxification reaction that can lead to adrenal crashes. Sufferers can be bedridden and incapacitated in severe cases. Of course, the stress on these systems feeds back around to the adrenal stress control center, feeding into a deepening of adrenal fatigue. 
------
So we see that aggressive use of antibiotics, far from helping with the body’s health, actually seems to be detrimental and contributes to the negative health spiral formed by adrenal fatigue and chronic Lyme disease symptoms when both are present. Recognizing and appreciating this relationship is a critical step if one is to be successful in fighting Lyme disease, because the recovery strategies can be quite different.



If the adrenal glands are weak, time should be taken to nurture them back to health. The adrenal glands need to be healthy in order to support a body that can stand a course of antibiotics, clear out toxic metabolites and deal with die-off reactions effectively. The longer adrenals are not in optimal performance, the weaker the body becomes over time and the harder it is to get on the road to recovery.
Supporting the Adrenals First – the Smart Move
In order to avoid this negative spiral of worsening health, the first step must be recognizing that recurring and chronic Lyme disease symptoms are deeply integrated and entwined with the state of the body’s adrenal health. This understanding is important because it points the way to a successful recovery from symptoms.
Recovering from Adrenal Fatigue and chronic Lyme disease symptoms requires strengthening the body through proper nutrition and lifestyleSince adrenal fatigue is an intrinsic condition where the mechanisms for dysfunction come from the inside, the recovery must focus on the body. Proper adrenal fatigue recovery is primarily concerned with rebuilding the body’s strength and nutritional reserves so that it has the capacity and energy to power all the different internal systems optimally. This is achieved using a combination of proper diet to avoid stressful foods and provide natural nutrition, nutritional supplementation to round out the body’s needed building blocks, and lifestyle changes to minimize stress and keep the body active but relaxed. Care should be taken not to further place excessive stress by stimulating the body with hormones, herbs, and glandulars that potentially have an excitatory effect on the body.
With respect to Lyme disease, once the adrenal system is back to a functioning level of capacity, it should be able to easily beat back the Borrelia invaders and drive them back into dormancy. The liver, kidneys, microbiome and ECM should also be back up to the job of clearing out the toxins excreted by these remainders. When done properly, the unpleasant chronic Lyme disease symptoms will begin to taper off and decrease in severity as the body’s detoxification and cleansing functions come back into full function.
Supporting the adrenals requires extensive clinical experience in order not to trigger adrenal crashes that give the Lyme pathogen an opportunity to resurge. A comprehensive, slow and steady, personalized approach is needed to gently support adrenal function without crashes. Patience is required – most are quite weak after years of a losing battle against Lyme. It is constantly surprising to note how well a slow and steady approach like this works, much better than the aggressive, single-focus antibiotic approach with chronic Lyme. In many cases, it may not be necessary to directly treat chronic Lyme disease once the adrenals are well supported, because a strong adrenal system will release the necessary anti-inflammatory hormones, such as cortisol, to keep the Lyme pathogen under control. The Lyme resurgence and relapse is self-limiting. As long as the body is kept healthy, chronic Lyme disease should remain below symptomatic levels and unable to bother the host.

Let's find out if you have Adrenal Fatigue
It takes patience and a comprehensive plan, but chronic Lyme disease symptoms can be reduced and disappear over time as the body strengthensIt is therefore very important to note that proper recovery from adrenal fatigue requires a comprehensive, holistic approach factoring in the adrenal system, with correct timing and patience. Adrenal fatigue is not contracted in a day; it spends months – even years – developing as the adrenal glands are worn down by chronic stress. As a result, the rebuilding of these reserves takes time as well. Using stimulants and energy boosters are ill advised. While they may have a short-term positive effect, the body soon runs into problems. The liver and kidneys are simply unable to handle proper detox and cleaning duties to metabolize and clear out the extra detritus from energy drinks and stimulants. It’s safe to say that, with respect to adrenal fatigue and Lyme disease recovery, slow and steady recovery in the hands of an experienced clinical expert is the way to go.
