Testimonials

"My advice to others who are struggling with Adrenal Fatigue is: "Never give up". The road back to feeling better comes in small steps. But it does come! However, you have to take the responsibility to take care of yourself and do what it takes to get there. I still take a maintenance dose of the Adrenal products because I figure that every day of life is somewhat stressful and I increase the amounts during times of heavier stress."

Maggie

"Many of my mysterious symptoms began as I was recovering from the pneumonia. I felt overwhelmingly tired - a fatigue unlike anything I'd ever felt before and not at all like you might feel at the end of a busy day. I woke up every morning feeling nauseous and often with my heart racing. After having read the book, made the changes and taken the Adrenal products, the improvement in my life has been immense"

How Long should I Take Dr. Wilson’s Adrenal Fatigue Program?

 By Dr. James L. Wilson

If you are following the Severe version of Dr. Wilson’s Programs for Adrenal Fatigue and Stress we suggest you continue for a minimum of 6 months to 2 years before starting the supplement reduction schedule outlined below. If you are following his Moderate or Mild program, you can begin cutting back gradually once you have been feeling good for at least 6 weeks straight.

Lifestyle is an important factor in adrenal health and stress hardiness. If your life is stressful and other aspects of your lifestyle, like diet and sleep habits, do not optimally support strong adrenal function, we suggest you continue to use Dr. Wilson’s program while your life has significant stress. Use how you feel as a guide to when you might be ready to begin this reduction schedule – there is no need to rush.
We recommend using the directions below to achieve optimal results as you cut back. You will be reducing or eliminating products one at a time, in the order given below. After each reduction, maintain the same amounts of everything else you are still taking and continue on the reduced regimen for 3 weeks before proceeding to the next step.
Remember that each time you reduce or eliminate a supplement, you should continue to feel good and maintain your energy. If not, go back one step and stay there for 3 more weeks before trying again. It helps to note the time of day when you feel lowest and reintroduce the supplements that preceded that time by about 2 hours. For example, if your low is between 2:30 and 4.00 pm, reintroduce the noon supplements you have eliminated.
If you feel like you are slipping back after being off the entire program for several weeks, we suggest you use the Mild program for about 3 months to give your adrenals additional support before trying the reduction program again.
Our goal is that at some point you will be able to stop taking these supplements regularly and still maintain optimum results. This is a great day and we celebrate your success!

I began Dr Wilsons severe adrenal fatigue programme 3 weeks ago today. Since then my health
general demeanour etc has improved so much that I am still absorbing just how well I am feeling. I knew I was feeling totally burnt out but didn’t understand why! I have recommended 3 people since my first visit to my marvellous naturopath as I want to spread the word that “you too can feel like living again!” Thanks so much Dr. Wilson.

Hi Diana,

That is exactly what I have heard from the hundreds of patients I have started on Dr. Wilson’s unique Adrenal Fatigue Program. There is no other program like it, and I have NEVER had the kind of amazing feedback from patients who were tired and placed on other programs the way I do once they start on Dr. Wilson’s. The original is the best.
Kiind regards,

Eric Bakker ND
